    This was the thread

    http://www.wiihacks.com/general-homebrew-h...-some-dont.html

    All I wanted to know was why some files weren't working. What WAS supposed to be a respected member told me to install a patche ios60 file. Now my wii says the system menu is corrupted.

    What should I do? I'm on 4.0u and I have the preloader. I owe that thing my Wii's life. I have full access to the homebrew channel. What the hell went wrong?

    are you sure? are you 100% sure? I'm extremely paranoid right now. Three hacked systems and this is the first time anything remotely bad happened.

    from what I see everyone gets a corrupted message when they installed a patched 60 but reinstalling preloader seems to always work for that problem

    Just do as everyone is telling you and reinstall preloader. It will patch the IOS60 again and it will boot fine ...

    Yes, this is a common issue since Preloader applies its own patch to IOS60 when installing. Therefore, reinstalling Preloader will fix things.

    ok, i went to 3.2 and now im back at 4.0. Do I need to re-install any of the ios files I used to have? I remember installing IOS 53, 38 and 55. Do I also need to reinstall IOS 60?

    You didn't have to downgrade, but whatever. The patched IOS60 should already be in place. You can test that out by trying out an installed channel from the SD Menu.

    Is this correct? If you already "patched" IOS60, you WILL get the System Files are Corrupt message after installing Preloader? I know re-installing it fixes it, but I was told if IOS60 was patched the message would not appear. ???

    Are you some kind of spammer?

    We gave you instructions on what was supposed to be done but you didn't do it.

    plus he joined 4 days ago.

    READ THE STICKIES AT THE TOP OF THE FORUM.

    Then people won't have to help you fix what you're fucking up, for you to then brag that they helped you run pirated channels. You sound like someone trying to incite something.
