    Ok so how do you install preloader on a 4.0 wii ? Do i just boot the program up in the wii and let it go or do i need some things installed first before i use it? Help would be appreciated

    >>On the D-pad>now the buttons

    The code for 0.29 is "1".

    So when you launch preloader, just press 1. No need to press all buttons (As what LightyKD suggested).


    You also need the hacks.ini to be place in the root of your SD Card.

    properly, meaning you had the homebrew channel and cios rev 9 or 10 installed prior to updating.

    If you're going to install the patched ios60, make sure you do that before you install preloader. It won't damage anything, but you'll need to reinstall preloader after you patch it. That allows you to play WiiWare off an SD card, which is, I'm assuming why you updated.

    Speaking of that, does anyone have a link for the ios60 installer? Just the network installer.

    If you have ios60 patched then you obviously had a cIOS and the homebrew channel installed when you updated to 4.0, so yes, you should be all set. Just run preloader from the homebrew channel, follow the instructions, and you're good to go. You need the correct hacks.ini for your region in the root of your SD card in order to install any hacks you want. Grab the latest hacks from here:

    http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/Preloader/hacks

    You can remove hacks.ini from your SD root after enabling the hacks you want, but you'll have to put it back when/if you want make any changes to them later. Everything else functions as normal with or without the ini.

    install the patch ios60
    install preloader

    your done.

    If you install preloader first and then patch ios60.You will get the message that your system menu is corrupt.(semi brick i believe its called).If this happens just reinstall preloader and it fixes it.

    yes there is a big difference between the 2 CIOSDOWNGRADER downgrades your systemmenu & IOSDOWNGRADER downgrades your IOS so they are hackable SO YOU NEED TO RUN IOSDOWNGRADER
