First of all I want to thank 'zouzzz zzzuoz', AlexLH, GizmoTheGreen and SquidMan.


WARNING:

SINCE THIS TOOL CHANGES THE WAY THE WII WORKS IT WAS NEVER INTENDED TO, THERE IS A RISK OF BRICKING YOUR CONSOLE. I'VE DONE EVERYTHING I CAN TO ASSURE THAT NOTHING WILL BRICK. BUT THIS IS STILL NO GUARANTEE!! THE AUTHOR CAN NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE IT MIGHT CAUSE! YOU ACCEPT THAT YOU INSTALL THIS ON YOUR OWN RISK!

Notes:

Preloader 'replaces' the systemmenu (it's not really replaced, its main.dol is just renamed) with a simple loader which allows you to automatically load the HBC, a .dol you can install from SD or the systemmenu. It also allows you to use simple patches on the systemmenu. To start the installtion enter I raid u.

Hacks:

Simply place the supplied hacks.ini in the root of the SD and enter the settings and then the hack settings to select the ones you want to use. Once save settings is selected the hacks.ini is copied to the NAND and it's no longer necessary to keep the file on the SD card. The format is very simple and should not require any explanation. Any dol you want to install must be in the SD root as well.

Bugs

As of version 0.25 there is an issue where the settings for the system menu patches can become corrupted and appear "stuck" as enabled. use this in order to clear the affected files from the NAND and then reapply whichever patches are needed.

Greetings:

(in random order) there are way too many people to greet and before I forget some I just don't list any :P
