    So I installed preloader, went into the settings, and set it to boot to system menu. Now when I turn on my Wii, nothing happens on my tv screen, and my Wii remote doesn't seem to acknowledge that the system is turned on either. Did I fully brick it? Sadly I don't see any way of fixing it since there is no display coming up on the tv screen. However, any tips or advice would be appreciated. Thanks [​IMG]

    can you still boot into preloader by holding reset when your wii turns on?

    Seriously? Preloader just saved you from a brick. It didn't cause the brick, something else did. You should try running through xzxero's guide (check his sig) to get everything flowing right.

    not a good idea to unistall it yet

    try disabling all scripts added

    if I'm not mistaken there is an option that does not allow you to boot wii system menu

    I've never read anything about someone bricking a wii installing preloader

    I'm pretty sure it's just a matter of how you set up it
