    I have system menu 4.1, and a PAL Wii.
    Then i installed this http://wiibrew.org/wiki/WiiSCU , and updated IOS16, IOS38, IOS60, IOS61 (trucha+ on all of them) and Wii Shop Channel. Then I restart the wii and nothing happens. Preloader don't work, and Bootmii don't work (i took a backup just before I downloaded WiiSCU). Is there anything I can do? :S

    Did you notice the disclaimer?

    Do not modify IOS60 with Wii System Menu 4.1 or before because you will likely brick your Wii if your System Menu requires IOS60 or if you upgrade to a System Menu that requires it. The downloaded version of IOS60 is a stub.

    You effectively broke your system menu. Preloader doesn't work because IOS60 was replaced. How was BootMii installed? If its on boot2, by what you say, it should still be there, and you can restore. If its on IOS, then things aren't looking too good.

    If you've updated IOS 60 (the one that is used by System Menu 4.1) to the highest version (v6400) which is a stub ie. empty - the 4.1 System Menu on your wii now has no IOS to run on.

    if you still have warranty just tell them it bricked after 4.2 update and get it repaired if no Warranty then you've just got yourself a nice new shiny white paper weight

    It's on Boot2, but it doesnt show up when I start my Wii...

    I guess I'll just send it in and hope they don't notice the homebrew...

    Messing with IOS should have had no effect at all if you did indeed install as Boot2. Are you 100% sure it was on boot2?

    Yeah, almost 100%. Bootmi usually pops up at start-up, and I don't think it doas thet if it's not Boot2. So what do I do then? :S

    I added that disclaimer for a reason. Got damnit.

    Anyway, go into Homebrew and you can fix it. You need to install an older IOS60 WAD.

    Yeah lol.
    But I think i know why it doesn't work... I changed some options and stuff so that Bootmii don't show up [​IMG].

    However, just before I installed WiiSCU, i downloaded Bootmi to the SD-card and installed it again. And when I restarted the Wii Bootmii popped up. Then i Installed IOS60, and it bricked...

    Will it work if I copy somebody else's SD-card?

    Did you rename the bootmii folder to stop it loading when powering up? also did you take a copy of your nand?

    On your sd card you should have :

    bootmii
    installer
    keys.bin
    nand.bin

    No I don't have keys.bin.
    Can you please make a copy of the content on your SD card, and upload it to mediafire or something, so I can try to boot it that way? It robably won't work though...

    That's not allow here.
    I know it kinda too late, but you should have done a little bit more research before trying doing stuff like that.

    Try reformatting your sd card as FAT and put Bootmii folder back on or try another SD card

    Please, refrain from flaming the author, it was good enough of him to develop this program, and you dictate it due to your idiocity is just hilarious.

    why don't you check your bootmii.ini file configuration. try to check the boot delay setup. as long as bootmii is at boot2 it will stay unless you uninstall it using the hackmii installer.
