    Maybe because you installed preloader instead of priiloader (at the time of preloader, HBC had another TitleID so it can't find HBC1.0.7+).

    I never used Pre/priiloader, but I'm sure there's a way to install and/or run any .dol from the SD card, just wait for Xflak to come back and help you for a step by step unbrick.
    Do not try something by yourself if you are not sure what you are doing is good.

    Just wait as Xflak says. The more people that start offering advice, the worse this could get. Just wait for Xflak to get his beauty sleep and take it from there. If you can access preloader, then you should be able to install/load a dol file. People have different methods, but Id gowith Xflak if I were you

    Just hang tight, yeah?

    download this bundle of v9 forwarder dols I made
    http://www.mediafire.com/?z1ca18ifda848g8

    Save the Wad Manager forwarder dol on the root of your SD Card. Also, save MMM to SD:\apps\WadManager\boot.dol. Also save the IOS80 patched wad (download it from ModMii's download page 1) to SD:\WAD\IOS80patched.wad, and u can also download and save the 4.3 System menu wad for your region.

    Start up preloader, install the wad manager forwarder dol as file, then launch the installed file, this should start up MMM. From there, load another patched IOS (last option in MMM menu), probably 236 or 249 or 250, then launch MMM's Wad Manager, then install IOS80 patched and the 4.3 system menu wad for your region.

    That should allow u access to the system menu. FYI, when u also reinstalled the 4.3 system menu, it woulda removed preloader. Anyways, once u get the wii functioning normally, use ModMii to rehack your Wii to make sure u have all the standard brick protection in place.

    Oh and if the forwarder doesn't work (XFlak I'm not sure if it's also preloader compatible) you can save my universal HBC forwarder dol (it defenetly works on preloader) on your sd card root and install it as file:

    It should start the HBC, from there you can start MMM and follow XFlak's guide.

    Preloader requires a patched system ios. Patching ios80 would fix the issue, but you would be better served using priiloader 0.6/0.7. You can reinstall system ios with patches, system menu, then priiloader 0.6/0.7. If you not online I suggest you patch ios36 and remove the priiloadet meta.xml and install with ios36

    ur already on 4.3 so it doesn't make a difference, but if u want to go to 4.2, install IOS70 patched and SM 4.2 for your region

    Stop trolling mauifrog (we want to help this guy). Ilman, just follow xflaks advice, you don't need to pay anyone.

    Well you should save up, I recommend buying Brawl because you can't use the wad manager without the Homebrew Channel, so you might as well use Smash Stack. Besides, Brawl is a great game and you're probably going to be pirating games anyway. You'd be buying one game for unlimited games. Being poor isn't an excuse for piracy.
