    sorry, but I kinda barely understand your topic title.


    What exactly are you asking for help with?

    installing preloader?

    Help recovering from a banner brick?

    Did you brick your wii?

    You need to be A LOT clearer.

    ok, well what exactly is the problem?


    You download preloader
    extract file from .rar file
    rename "preloaderv0.29-cred.dol" to "boot.dol"
    Make preloader folder in the apps folder on your sd card
    stick boot.dol and in that folder
    stick hacks.ini in the root of the sd card
    start preloader install with the homebrew channel
    install preloader



    what part are you having trouble with?

    Has you already started the Preloader Application?
    When yes, I think he need the ┬┤secret install code┬┤. [​IMG]

    the part where im having trouble with installing preloader is that where do i begin, at the point where it list the 6 items[i know i kept mentioning "6 items" in different topics, but i keep forgetting what they are off the top of my head]

    Are these the 6 items?

    System Menu
    Homebrew channel
    Installed file
    Load/Install File
    System Menu Hacks
    Settings


    Sounds like you got it installed, but I'm not sure exactly what you're asking.

    1) Preloader don't like SDHC-Cards
    2) Check if Hacks are for 4.0
    3) Reformat SD

    i have 3.4 firmware,
    i think i didnt understand the install thing,
    sould i run the hacks.ini file from the preloader install file?

    is the preloader can work with 3.4 or do i need to go to 3.2?

    thanx

    got the 3.2U firmware to the wii and now the preloader is working well,
    i guess that the preloader can work only on 3.2 or 4.0 firmware,
    i also figure out that there isnt any hacks.ini file to the 3.4 frimware, so maybe this is what went wrong with the preloader(i uesed a 4.0 file without knowing [​IMG] )

    now i got a feeling that the wii became a litile bit slower than it uesd to be with the 3.4 firmware, can it be? or i'm just [​IMG] ??

    p.s
    i didnt want to install 4.0 firmware i just wanted to be on the safe side with the preloader.
