I started with a 4.0 Virgin Wii two days ago. I read all the how-tos, even the irrelevant ones that just provided a history of certain things. I installed Preloader .29, Bootmii, HBC, cIOS249 and I used dop-ios to patch any relevant IOSs I may need patched. I backed up my nand with Bootmii and stored it on my computer's hard drive for safe keeping. It's been working fine. Tonight I decided to update to 4.2 (with the safe one). That worked fine, I retained my HBC and all that good stuff....but it of course does away with Preloader. The install itself went flawlessly. Now I wanted to re-install Priiloader for safety reasons. I had been using Preloader .29 since that's what the tutorial specified, but since 4.2 did away with it anyway, I decided to use the opportunity to install Priiloader (rev 15 if I recall) instead. I placed the updated hacks.ini in the SD root directory, put Priiloader in my apps folder, ran priiloader install via HBC and installed. Then I restarted the Wii.... To my surprise, it ran Bootmii (instead of the main priiloader screen) No biggie I figured, so I restarted again (while holding reset). It started up Priiloader. The autoboot was on bootmii, so I switched it to System Menu, and switched return to priiloader. Now when I start it up (without holding reset of course) it does nothing. It just goes to a black screen with "4.2(USA)" at the bottom right. I checked that priiloader was using the right IOS for 4.2, which it was. I then booted into HBC and ran DOP-IOS and reinstalled+patched IOS70. Then I restarted... Still no dice. Same black screen with 4.2(USA). Like I said, I still have Bootmii......and a backed up NAND......access to HBC (with dop-ios and any other useful homebrew). Just wondering if there is any easy fix so I don't lose all my work from since I backed up my nand.... I'd sure appreciate it!
