    Everything with my Homebrew 4.3 installation is working fine, but when I turn on my Wii It boots to the text based Multi Mod Manager Menu screen. It says hit Home to exit, but that just reboots and takes me right back to the same menu screen.

    I found a work around in that I can select the preiiloader from the menu and select save settings and that will reboot me into the normal Wii startup menu. Does anyone know what the problem is or how to fix this? Thanks

    Just delete everything from your sd.
    Files were needed for hacking, are not needed anymore.

    Thanks I'll try those tonight when I get home. But a question about deleting the files off the SD card. I noticed when I boot without the SD card in and it boots to the Wii menu - the window where you load a game disk says "Update" - if I boot with the method above, it shows my game disk image. Is there a problem with a loader or is this normal? thanks

    What game do you have in the disc drive?
    Your SD card should have
    sd:\apps
    sd:\private

    for your hombrew apps and maybe some stuff for your usb loader
    sd:\usb-loader
    sd:\wiiflow
    ...

    I have sd:\hacks for priiloader along with images, txtcodes,codes,config,mame

    Sounds like you have a boot.dol for mmm that is getting loaded instead of homebrew.

    I think you're right, but I'm not sure how to fix it. These are the files in the root of my SD:

    boot.dol
    hacks
    installer
    mmmconfig
    startup.elf
    UsbLoader-GX.dol

    If I delete these files and leave the SD card in the Wii, it won't boot - it'a just a black screen. If I take out the SD card and boot the wii, the Homebrew Channel is empty. Everything seems to be running off of the SD card. Is there a step that I missed when I installed everything? Can someone tell me what I'm missing? Thanks

    i boot the same way, i got used to it now, just go to edit and save priiloader hacks, if i boot without the sd it goes directly to the system menu but the priiloader hacks will not work

    tThe structure for loading homebrew from sd is: sd:/apps/anyfolder/boot.dol

    So if you want to run MMM from the homebrewchannel it would go like this:

    sd:/apps/Multimodmanager/boot.dol

    This structure is the ONLY way to let the homebrew channel to read your apps.
    And counts for ANY app.

    As far the preloader isseus.
    Just put the hack.ini inthe ROOT of your sd card.

    So: sd:/hacks.ini

    Recap: sd:/apps/Multimodmanager/boot.dol
    sd:/hacks.ini

    You can doenload every app there is afterwards.

    Do a little more research before you mod a Wii.It can save you a lot of headaches.

    Like I said delete the files, and make this structure on your sd card.
