    preloader didnt brick your wii, using IOS60/61 Installer /Patcher did, as it downloads a stub ios60.

    unless you have bootmii installed as boot2 and a nand backup, your wii is now bricked.

    Do you have BootMii/boot2 or only BootMii/IOS?

    put that damn SD card with the right apps and it automatically loads bootmii and from there, restore your NAND backup. gamecube controller needed or just use the Wii's power/reset buttons to navi

    If you installed Preloader, turn on your wii and hold the reset button, you will launch the preloader where you have access to the homebrew channel.
    get nus downloader for windows and download IOS 60 latest version and let it pack into a wad, put that wad into your sd card an install it with the wad manager.

    the reason why this happens is, nintendo wants to fight us and they changed the first IOS60 version into a dummy file, because the new system update 4.2 no longer needs IOS60 to work with the system menu.

    so your IOS60 installer installed the no longer needed first IOS60 version and your wii is bricked.

    but you installed preloader so you can fix that problem, if not....then....you're really fucked in the ass


    Edit: damn, so many replys in that short time .__.

    if your wii still has warranty, you wont have bootmii as boot2, as your wii will be far too new.

    bootmii as ios is useless as far as brick protection goes, and you have no way of launching it.

    preloader is toast too, as you already know, due to the stub ios60.

    next time dont blindly follow old out of date guides.

    good idea i just looked at the date and i was like oh fuck

    well here's the guide i used any way...

    QUOTE(assassda @ Apr 1 2009, 01:38 PM)
    This is the ULTIMATE Tutorial for everything you need for System Menu 4.0
    for EUR and USA Wiis only not JAP or KOREAN

    There are two methods described in this guide. Online and completely Offline installations. The Online installation is the safer method. They should both work on ANY Wii besides LU64+. You only need to use one guide, they both do the same thing. Please read the entire thread including FAQ before asking a question.


    Online Downgrade/Upgrade

    Prerequisites:
    --SD card
    --cIOS or vulnerable IOS36
    --Wifi Connection (Ethernet doesnt work)
    --Unplug any Gamecube Memory Cards, Gamecube Controllers, USB Devices
    --Read the FAQ and be prepared with a general knowledge of Wii Homebrew

    http://www.mediafire.com/?xzdzrmmnoj0 (07-09-09)

    1) Format your SD card to FAT16. Copy the contents inside the sd folder to the root of your SD card

    2) Insert the SD card in the Wii and go to Data Management>Channels>SD Card press YES on the dialog box that asks to load boot.dol

    3) Install the Homebrew Channel and install BootMii as boot2 if possible or as an IOS if boot2 is not available.

    4) Launch Bootmii (if you installed to boot2 just reset the system if you installed to IOS go to the HBC and press the Home button)

    5) Open the config menu (gears) and choose backup NAND (green arrow) wait for it to finish and restart the Wii

    6) Install cIOS36 rev10 to IOS249 using Network install mode

    7) Downgrade system IOS files using IOS Downgrader

    8) Downgrade to 3.2 using cIOS Downgrader even if you are already on 3.2 run this

    9) Install preloader to prevent bricks. On the install screen press 1

    10) Run the 4.0 Updater

    11) Run the IOS60 updater
    say NO to install IOS61
    say YES to install IOS60
    say YES to patch IOS60
    say NO to install the shop channel

    12) You must now hold reset while powering on to boot to the homebrew channel and reinstall preloader

    13) Set your preloader settings. In preloader hacks enable "Skip disc update check"

    Guys, I bricked 3 times too messing up with latest preloader and ios60/70 (not stub, downloaded from nus) It just wont boot. :S theres something weird with it that I cant figure out

    I can upload one of my bricked nands if you want, I always recovered thanks to boot2 bootmii... After I get to the brick stat, I cant recover from it... Installing IOS60, patched, from package, redownloaded... Nothing... I Just cant get it to boot.

    I'm working on 4.2 hacks for region unlocking, and I need to downgrade / upgrade from 4.1 to 4.2 and viceversa but using preloader 0.30 is a mess u.u

    I went back to JODI .29

    my preloader is gone too after using waninkoko safe upgrader, but all my backup disc and my usb loader is still working.

    should i reinstall preloader? or just keep it that way since all games are working? i dont use wads and i dont play VC games.

    if you dont have/cant install bootmii as boot2, then you certainly should have preloader for brick protection at least.
