OK about a week ago, I uninstalled preloader by reinstalling the System Menu with wad manager
I then ran Hack Remover, but it failed.
Everything was working fine, though

Then I decided to reinstall preloader today, and now my System Menu won't boot (4.0U).

Well it does boot if I switch the System Menu IOS to 249, but it won't with IOS 60

I reinstalled IOS 60, then reinstalled preloader (To apply the patch to IOS 60), but it still won't boot.
It says "System files are currupted. Please read the manual"

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

It seems during the process some crucial System files either went corrupt or got deleted, sorry to say but you're Wii's now useless, it's as good as Bricked.

Well I can get into the System Menu with IOS 249, but it just won't work with IOS 60 (4.0's default IOS)
Should I run cIOS downgrader to get to 3.2 and start over?

Thanks

I have successfully downgraded to 3.2U
Then I used Any Title Deleter to erase IOS 60 and IOS 61

I'm kind of scared to upgrade to 4.0 and install preloader again, so I might stay here,
I hear 3.2U is the best for homebrew anyway.

That's weird how preloader kept currupting IOS60, though

Update:
Just updated to 4.0U, ran IOS downgrader, installed preloader, and now everything is working fine.

Woo, my first brick! How exciting

You could have just installed preloader again instead of downgrading. XD
IOS60 has to be patched by the preloader installer, so this thing is pretty common.

I tried that (Like 5 times)
I deleted IOS 60 (In case it was currupted or something), reinstalled IOS 60, then reinstalled preloader (So it would patch IOS 60)

I have no idea why that didn't work, but it didn't

    A bunch of different people I saw & laggy audio for online play is a common occurrence

    Here's another video fog isn't being displayed properly on several games. Nintendo life also reported this. Water Temple in oot water reflection isn't emulated properly either the whole point of the gimmick of that room. Graphical glitches and poor emulation shouldn't be present at $30 bucks

    You can't save ghost data either in Mario Kart 64. Wasn't an issue on VC for Wii and Wii U.

    Even if they fix these issues I'm still not buying it. $30 for drip fed n64 games is fucking retarded. Their online service is still shit.

    nintendo's offering was the worst deal but nobody cared because it was $20

    now that it's $50, it's a really bad deal

    also costing only $20 kinda excuses the poor online services a little bit, $50 demands better quality online

    they should've just offered a better service to begin with and charged $50 from the beginning
