    Ok, I read somewhere that if you load preloader twice your system can get messed up. I have preloader 27 and for some retarded reason I decided to go on the preloader AGAIN! So far nothing has happened to me but I just want to make sure that my stupid "noob" self hasn't messed up my Wii. Can someone tell me I'm ok or not and what can happen? When I loaded it the second time it was installing, then it was loading the preloader and the Wii just restarted. Idk if preloader 27 has a safety thing where if idiots like me do this they're ok but I want to make sure I didn't f**k anything up...please?

    I don't think it fucks up your wii. It should uninstall the older version first, then install the newer.

    But I could be wrong, so don't sue me and bring me to Ace Attorney, I'm begging you!!

    Installing Preloader multiple times will not mess anything up.

    It will detect that there was a previous version and overwrite it with the newer version.

    It is a good idea to run the hacks remover wad before reinstalling Preloader.

    Sincerely,

    Heh sounds like me, except I didn't flip out because I realized that it just did the same thing again.

    What you should be worrying about is when the blue light turns red and you get a... RROD sort of thing but Nintendo style [​IMG]

    Then before you do anything to your Wii. Read the tread about what it is that you are putting on your system FRONT to BACK BACK to FRONT or deep enough to where you see some real success of that hack/application your about to install. When somethings are release they have bugs in them that need to be fix by the coders. So let the pro's do their job and find the mistakes so they can be corrected and a new release may come out. Then those like you can be sure that what you have will work if you understand about what it is you have.
