Hi guys, a friend of mine got his wii softmoded some time ago, and everything worked great. A couple of days ago he installed some crap trying to be able to play the new mario game (i don't know what exactly he installed but i can ask if it is necessary), all he got was a wii unable to play discs, he (wrongly) thought it was the preloader fault and tried to mess with it. The result? bricked wii. Now he's getting the damaged files message, like this: It seems like a banner brick, maybe caused by preloader fucking a wrong version of the system menu or something like that. He can still access preloader, so, he should be able to launch apps from his SD card, and now he is still looking for help. We found a tutorial on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAwwUtjZUn4...player_embedded But i'm not eager to try it out right away without asking first, it seems the guy in the video is just installing the system menu IOS and the system menu, and i think that if he reinstalls the system menu he's going to overwrite the preloader losing any hope to unbrick his wii if anything goes wrong. So guys, what do you recomend me to do?, follow the video instructions? run a downgrader? run cioscorp?. I want to take the safest route to get the wii working. Thank you very much, any help is higly appreciated.
