    I was trying to update to 4.0 and then do a CIOSCORP update so i could use USB and Disc channel and somewhere during the process I screwed up and now get a weird message in broken characters. I can get to the preloader menu. How do I start over? My very pregnant, game playing wife, is going to kill me...really. HELP!

    You can get to the Preloader menu? All i can think of is going into the HBC channel from there and try running IOSDowngrader and cIOS Downgrader. Correct me if i'm wrong, but that would be a start.

    Just reinstall preloader

    This happens all the time.

    Preloader patches IOS60 so it can use it to boot into the System Menu.
    When you installed CIOSCORP, you overwrote IOS60 with CIOS60.
    So you need to reinstall Preloader so it can re-apply the patch

    oh god, thank you. I think IOS Downgrader v1.2 might be working. Otherwise, I will kill myself. She wants to play Klonoa tomorrow and she's been unable to move without puking except for yoga and video games.

    it's taking SO long though.

    downgrader got me back to 3.2u. I've never been so freaked out in my life.

    She must be happy. It's been such a difficult pregnancy and she really relaxes when she plays the Wii.

    Last week our jailbroken iPhones glitched and I thought I was going die.

    THANKS!!!

    There was no need to downgrade.

    As I said above, you could have just reinstalled Preloader.
    Oh well, glad you got your Wii fixed and your wife isn't going to kill you :-)

    Yea you got a bit hasty there taking the advice of someone with a broken Wii himself before realizing you just had to reinstall preloader

    Whichever MIOS comes with the gcn loader 0.2 is best. Also, cIOS rev10.

    that would be miosrev3. I recommend using cios36rev9, then installing preloader, cioscorp, preloader again, then cios36rev10 since I had some trouble with rev10 earlier.
