4.2 Preloader Brick Questions
October 06, 2011 05:52PM
So I installed preloader onto my 4.2 Wii, not knowing I really needed priiloader. The preloader menu is completely useless, and cannot access the SD card or access system menu, which my research suggests is to be expected. I have Homebrew Channel and I used bannerbomb. I didn't backup anything prior to this.

My questions:

1. Is there anyway to fix this without dishing out some dough? (perhaps the System Menu autostart option in preloader, I was scared to touch this.)
2. Is there a cheaper alternative to the SaveMii if not?
3. Does SaveMii still work?
4. If I do get SaveMii or another method to autoload a CD or USB, what should I do next?. Do I just need to get rid of preloader via AnyTitleDeleter and that's it, or will I need to reinstall the System Menu ? (I have NUS downloader)

Thank you for all your help

Can you load HBC from preloader? If so, you should be able to fix this from there.

No. It says "Error autoloading HBC. Maybe not installed" something like that.

Preloader has a nifty feature to load a dol. it will copy the dol to the nand, and then it can run it. you can make a dol that will load whatever HBC you have, then have preloader install that dol, and then have preloader boot that dol.

I guess it is a bit of a challenge if you dont know which version of HBC you have installed. But it still can be done relatively easily.

saveme/savemefrii wont work in this case. that only works on the system menu. and since preloader is unable to start you system menu, it obviously wont do anything.

It won't recognize the SD card.

try with a different SD card or reformatting yours. ive havent heard of preloader not being able to read ANY sd card yet. also, i think you will have better luck with a plain-jane SD card. not a micro SDHC inside an adapter, not a tiny SATA hard drive that is shaped like a SD card, but just a 2GB SD card.

I am using an SD adapter with microSD. I will get a regular SD card and post back with my results.
