    Hi everyone, so i have followed all the guides to upgrade my wii to V4.2
    A great success and easy guides to follow [​IMG]
    but when i install preloader and then go back to the system menu
    i get the faded system file corrupted message.
    This is then fixed by re-installing system4.2 wad but im confused as to why i get this message each time i try and re-install preloader on 4.2 ??

    Are you running system menu 4.2 on IOS60??

    Try going back to the preloader menu and changing the IOS it runs on.

    IOS70 isn't possible with preloader, chances are your running something like IOS50 or something stubbed maybe, or an old IOS that doesn't work anymore. Check it out.

    IOS70 may be possible with preloader later, not with .29 atm.

    It is possible to run it under IOS70. You'll have to put in the ES_Identify patch into IOS70 somehow prior to installing it, and then install via wad manager, then reinstall preloader, and then change the "System Menu IOS" to 70. Of coure you'll need access to the HBC to do this.

    Oh you installed the patched one. Can you try installing the regular .29, there is no need for the other one if you are not going to autoboot to Homebrew.

    And even if you can, you can reinstall HBC 1.03 using Hackmii beta2 and then just having both channels, which is what I do.

    Da_Letter_A has the correct answer for you.


    It works again because installing the system menu removes preloader. Pre-loader does not ES_Verify IOS70 during install (pre-loader not compatible out of the box with SM 4.2) and pre-loader needs that to run. Installing an IOS70 that is ES_Verified will allow Pre-loader to work with SM 4.2

    Just to add to the topic.

    I just installed IOS60(previous, not the stub) and SM4.2, using PreLoader set to use IOS60 and it's working fine.

    a quick email to seeboottwo@gmail.com will automatically get you a link that includes a patched one, but linking directly to a WAD download here in the forum can get you banned
