This homebrew application makes permanent changes to the Wii's NAND, thus, this application should be used with caution.

It is recommended to have a NAND backup with either BootMii as boot2 or Priiloader with BootMii as IOS installed before proceeding with the usage of this application.

StartPatch Mod is a modification of StartPatch which allows you to select which IOS to use to patch your System Menu v4.2, puts all four versions into one, and other minor changes.

Warning Note

Strongly recommend a NAND backup if possible
We hold no responsibility in the case of a brick! Enjoy!!
