think you need to add, what this does...

Crediar, Your wii is bricked? Was this application the cause of that? Either way I personally am not going to use the application. Nintendo's sharp attacks toward homebrew have made me decide to not hack the System Menu until there are more lower level protections added. Pinball wizard 00:50, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

This vs, Starfall

I'm assuming the "hacks.ini" part is similar to the Starfall type hacks. How dangerous is this program compared to Starfall? I've used starfall (3.2U) and it works great, but I'm afraid of the "brick risk" with this program. Also, it sounds like it has similar BootMii capabilities. (sorry i ask a lot of questions, thanks in advance to whoever answers) =) Jdcx95 01:08, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Uninstallation

Is it possible to easily uninstall this? Because I've read in a few places that it impossible easily to uninstall, and the only way to uninstall it is by using a new SysMenu WAD. --Murkantor 07:28, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Maybe AnyTitle Deleter? Jdcx95 20:42, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Well I don't think you can uninstall it, but basically if you just set the preloader to disable and delete the hacks.ini on your sd. It would be just the same as uninstalled.

It's ok, I managed to uninstall it. I ripped the 3.2E SysMenu and used a WAD installer to reinstall. And to my research, AnyTitle Deleter would brick the Wii. Since Preloader just renames the SysMenu and puts it's own .DOL in it's place, the Wii wouldn't find a .DOL on Boot, so it won't boot. But this app is a good idea (Just like BootMii...), the only thing it lacks is an easy uninstallation.


What about using AnyRegion Changer and downgrade to 3.2.. --WiiCracker 18:17, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

I think theres now an uninstaller on the main page of this article. Jdcx95 21:22, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

I couldn't get AnyRegion Changer to work, and I couldn't find the "Remover" either... --Murkantor 16:49, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

If you have an attachment to the Wiimote when rebooting or loading system menu the screen hangs where code is displayed. Unplug the attachment and resetting fixes the problem.

Modifying the installer

"Modifying the installer can lead to a brick. *cough* comex *cough*"

Sounds like a pretty serious bug. I'd hate to see someone's Wii get bricked because of a corrupt download. Maybe it should be doing some checksum/signature verification on itself.

(I'm going to ignore the "comex" remark and assume it doesn't deliberately brick anything...) HyperHacker 07:12, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

This story behind this is that comex modified the installer to make it install which caused serious problems but in the end he was able to fix it. Crediar 07:23, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

BUG: Version 0.7 Does NOT Allow Standby Mode

I upgraded to version 0.7 which, according to the changelog, allows support for standby mode. Afterward, I turned my Wii off, expecting it to go to Standby. It didn't. Turned it back on, checked the Wii's and Preloader's settings. Powered off. Same effect. --Zim 00:41, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Should starfall be removed before installing this ?

I'm thinking of installing this, but I have one small question. Do I need to uninstall / turn off hacks in Starfall in order to install it safely ? Or can I just leave Starfall 'on' and run Preloader.

Ps. Great work !
