    Ok. The story is this. I fixed my buds computer and instead of paying me money he bought me a VC game (ys book I & 2,I didn't tell him I could get it for free [​IMG]) I went to the shop channel and was told to update,I didn't and went online and grabbed waninkoko's updater 4.3b (The one that doesn't give any errors with homebrew). Everything went smoothly until I got to the "Installing wii menu 4.3" I got a Ret -1010 error...restarting wii (isn't 1010 a low memory error?). Then preloader loaded and couldn't boot the wii menu or HBC, so I am thiking. Oh son of a brick!

    So here is what I have on wii. Preloader 0.29,Bootmii and NAND backup. Is there anyway at all to cure this problem? Any help at all would be very much appreciate. I've been to a couple places and no one has even bothered to look at my post and I'm starting to feel discouraged. The previous wii menu was 4.2u waninkoko. If only there was a way to delete some games off the memory and access HBC again to run the installer and complete it would be a blessing so I can play my wii again. Any thoughts or ideas how to fix this, Thank you!

    Firs, there is no reason to update to 4.3. You can use DOP-shop to update your shop channel.

    Run priiloader and select Load file and select load file

    Run DOP-mii and install IOS70 v6687 then SYstem Menu 4.2.

    You should now be back to 4.2 too do what you please.

    EDit: correction, you cant run files from bootmii. thx EseHomes

    Assuming you have BootMii as boot2, the first thing I would do is use BootMii to make a backup of the current state of the system, just in case anything attempted makes things worse.

    Once you install IOS70 and SM4.2U as others have mentioned, I would use the 4.2U modding guide to get HBC and everything else back in order.

    Then take another backup once it's all hunky dory. [​IMG]

    Depending on the version of preloader, you should be able to run apps directly from the SD card or at the very least, install some type of forwarder that loads apps from the SD card.

    Edit:

    If you have BootMii as boot2, you should be able to edit SD:\bootmii\bootmii.ini on your SD card so that you can access BootMii (set BOOTDELAY to 5).

    I have a backup of my NAND. I believe it was when I updated to waninkoko 4.2. so my NAND is 4.2u nand. Right now I can't load anything because all I can access is preloader. This happend after 4.3b waninkoko installer was installing the "wii system menu 4.3u"

    DOP-mii to install IOS70 + system menu 4.2 if you have wifi on your wii.

    Or use NUSD to download the files and install with wad manager.

    I have wifi on my wii. so we're good on networking ability. Would rolling back to 4.2U nintendo affect the 4.2u waninkoko?
    I just want to make sure before I do something drastic, even though I do have my NAND backed up.

    No your wii should be fine. Just install IOS70 v6687 AND THEN System Menu 4.2.

    Umm, just to let everyone know, you CAN NOT run .dol files from bootmii. IDK why there are so many people in this thread throwing out misinformation. The only things that can be run from bootmii are .elf files that have been compiled with the bootmii toolchain. Normal homebrew apps CAN NOT be run from bootmii. You people REALLY need to research more before telling people stuff that does not work. I am still a noob here and surprisingly I know more than many other people because I took the time to research instead of assume.

    Thanks everyone for taking the time to help.I'll post my results as soon as I can locate dop-mii and system 4.2u. are you SURE the offical 4.2u won't affect the waninkoko version I had prior to the 4.3 slip up?

    Wanin doesnt have a special system menu or IOS70 - its merely the soft modding methodology.

    I put boot.dol of DOP-mii on the root of the SD card and preloader says "Can't find executable file on the root of the SD card" it's named "boot.dol" Any ideas?

    EDIT : never mind, it was in a folder >_
