    Hi everyone,

    I installed the new 0.3b priiloader.

    Now my Wii only boots to the priiloader screen, it says

    Error autobooting system menu
    could not get boot stats

    I can goto homebrew channel fine.
    I tried reinstalling it, and uninstalling it. Both dont do anything.

    Anything i can do ??? I do have bootmii as an ios and a nand backup.

    be very careful, dont rush fixing it, as u are in a position that could lead to brick

    i would talk to Daco, but I suspect reinstalling your system menu IOS and system menu would remove priiloader and solve your problem... but still CHECK WITH DACO

    priiloader is a good idea... i've never heard of your error, most people dont have problems with priiloader

    maybe try a different rev (grab it from my signature if u want)

    but like i said, this sounds very much like something Daco would want to know, u should him a msg in the priiloader thread

    i do check priilioader topics you know
    well, according to the source priiloader failed getting the stats of the main system menu or the size was read as 0

    had any crashes during installation?


    im sure a system menu reinstall and then reinstall of priiloader will work fine

    Thanks for the reply.

    It's great that you support your work.

    How would i go about reinstalling the system menu ??

    Is it ios70 and then install with Wad Manager ?

    Gambia, The
    You need the system menu itself.
    BUt if you want to reinstall ios70,do it before you install the menu,because you could end up with no menu

    get the files using nus downloader, then use wad manager to install them

    or if u have wifi on your wii, u can use dop-ios mod

    Ok it worked.

    And priiloader worked this time.

    I think what went wrong was when i first modded the system i installed an older version of priiloader, which didnt install. It gave me some error.

    So for future reference, if you have gotten an error before, mabye do a system menu restore before installing a new version of priiloader.

    Thanks a million guys.

    yes that was your mistake. 0.1 had a bug in the installer that could crash it leaving a 0 byte system menu dol behind. that is why i added tyhe 0 byte check in future priiloader versions.
