    Hey I can no longer launch the homebrew channel from preloader after updating from 1.03 to 1.06 version of the homebrew channel. I did some reading and I am aware the fix is to install preloader v0.30 but when I run v0.29 and click on the dol under load installed file it says it loaded it but nothing seems to happen...preloader seems to be corrupt is there any other way for me to install? Thanks for any help...

    just install the priiloader v0.4 boot.dol as a file in preloader, then load the installed file, it will take u to the priiloader installer, then update priiloader

    problem solved

    fyi, there any many many many different ways to solve this problem, so I suspect others like tj_cool will likely give u different advice that will also work

    ok, so go to the system menu, then go to the HBC, then run the priiloader v0.4 installer

    edit: btw, installing that file doesn't update your priiloader, all that does is saves the new installer to your wii, then if u run the installed file, it should run the installer, which would then allow u to update priiloader
