    I need to replace the bluetooth module in my Wii because PreLoader fried it and now my Wii won't display anything on the TV or connect and Wiimotes. I need help on installing the new replacement module. How do I install a bluetooth module into my Wii? Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    the bluetooth module is the small board that sticks out to the left of the sd-card slot at the fromt,
    it plugs in by pressing it down on the board.
    you need to strip the metal screen off first to get to it.

    it's possible that it's just come unplugged a bit - but they do fail.
    and it was *not* caused by Preloader - it's just a USB device.

    DealExtreme sell's replacements very cheap.
    (dont forget that you need a tri-wing screwdriver to strip the case off)

    Nobody would have thought you dumb if you would have just said my bluetooth stopped working. But blaming it on preloader makes you look like a fool.

    Bluetooth is very simple to fix and should not cost you more than $20 with shipping for the part and tri-wing screwdriver.

    Preloader has GC controller support. Hit A on the gamecube controller and boot to the system menu and sync your wiimotes there. >_>
