Well I made this page but i had no part in making this application. Plus credit must go to the others that have edited this page and made it better.--Flyguy 14:04, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
I give you some massive reps for this. Preloader always bricked my Wii, but this didn't and the hacks did work! Thanks, -TPAINROXX/BKW 01:38, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
No problem! :-P I just made the page and the reals kudos should go to aquilino. Heck, I kinda enjoyed making the page!--Flyguy 14:28, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
If I use this does that mean I no longer will need the save extractor and save installer for my animal crossing save file?? When I extract my save file it is called rvforest.dat is that what file I will get if I copy the save file from the wii to my sd card once I remove the lock on copying save files???

Just a question
What about using this app in 3.3/3.4 Wiis? Starfall works only on 3.2
Thank you anonimo200

ahhhhh!!! Sign your posts!! :-P now that that's over with... No unfortunately there is no 3.3/3.4 startpatch. :( however I would either downgrade to 3.2 with any region changer or just update to 4.1 as 3.3v2 and 3.4 have no benifets over 4.0/4.1. Sorry--Flyguy 14:18, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for your quick replay and sorry for not having signed my post (corrected). I'm on 3.3v1 and probably will update to 4.1. anonimo200 19:00, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
AHHHH!!! wait dont. if you havent already install waninkoko's cIOS rev13b BEFORE you update as the 4.1 startpatch requires it. and no problem about not signing posts (hence the :-P)--Flyguy 19:55, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
- Yes definitely wait, because if you're on 3.3v1, then there's still a trucha enabled IOS in there, you should be able to downgrade to 3.2 with AnyRegion Changer.-Kage Korosu 21:59, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
- Don't worry, wanin's cIOS installed. And no intencion to downgrade (I haven't till now, why should I? 3.3v1 has trucha bug in all the IOS but 30, -correct me if I'm wrong-) And probably I will not upgrade either. No need to access SD from Menu and don't play games, just homebrew. If it works it's better not to touch it ;-). Thanks for your help.anonimo200 14:13, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Patches don't install
When I try to install any patch, it just says "The patch section was not found in the DOL. Nothing to do." Is it a bad download or something? Swift Finch 18:52, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
That would usualy mean you are either trying to install (A) a patch that is already installed or uninstalling (B) a patch that was never installed--Flyguy 19:55, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Ah, alright. I was trying the press y on gc controller one, but I guess it interfere's with preloader's version. I'll try to change that next time I turn on the wii. Thanks mate. Swift Finch 22:16, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Well honestly i would get rid of preloader altogether and use this. But thats just me as i have bootmii boot2 so i only need the hacks. plus (once again) this wont let the disc spin forever.--Flyguy 00:19, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
I just like to have as much brick protection as possible. I also have bootmii boot2, but I like to be safe. And is there an easier way to do this? I'm really not in the mood to reinstall the system menu and everything, because simply uninstalling the preloader hack of the startpatch hack I want to install doesn't work (if that makes sense). Swift Finch 16:32, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Unfortunately I believe that the only way to uninstall preloader is to downgrade with anyregion changer or to reinstall just the system menu.--Flyguy 16:00, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
- Its not that hard really. You actually dont even need anyregion changer. Just get the system menu wad with NUSD and install it with wad importer or certain other apps...--ChuckBartowski 04:24, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
- I know, I'm just a lazy bastard and didn't want to reinstall my themes and everything. But I did, and StartPatch is now awesome. Thanks everyone. Swift Finch 12:55, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
As soon as i attempt to start the program i get that error and it goes back to Homebrew channel i have BootMii installed if that matters —Preceding unsigned comment added by TehHacker (talk • contribs) 23:25, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
Do you have the requirements? What System Menu are you on?--Flyguy 16:03, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

To trucha enable means to add a bug that Nintendo originally put in the IOS's but fixed later on. This is a very easy way of letting unsigned code run on the wii. (Which is why it is gone now). My guess is that you don't currently have any trucha enabled IOS's (unless you updated through some of waninkoko's nonsense) and you cant use this program. Sorry.--Flyguy 22:25, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
I Think ill downgrade to 3.2 as it is the best for this sort of thing so any suggestions on how to do it? PS. i will downgrade to 3.2 install trucha bug then update back to 4.0 with Wankantos updater (good plan eh) Ma Is Teh PwnZor 02:47, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
How exactly do you plan on doing that? You cant do it without the trucha (legally anyway). Therefore you wont be able to do use ay apps that require trucha. PS: You don't really install trucha. Pre-3.2 System Menus started come that way. It is a "thinking" process within the IOS's and Nintendo removed it and patched the thought process. See here for more info on IOS's.--Flyguy 21:01, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
Hey just FYI, on 4.1U, "Region Free Wii Discs" Kills my Gamecube functionability. Don't know if this was a problem in preloader too, just decided to point that out. And a hefty thanks for letting me rid myself of the whole "my wii spins up all night if I leave a disc in problem". Kudos. -- Poohead900 (n00b) —Preceding undated comment added 01:50, 29 July 2009 (UTC).
Hmm... Didn't know that. Unfortunately I cant help you there. (I don't use region free discs) however do you have anything else (non-startpatch) that could cause this problem?--Flyguy 13:48, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Nope, Startpatch is the only thing that I have running on it at the moment. (Removed preloader with anyregionchanger down to 3.2U then back up to 4.1U as per the preloader page). After I turned on all the bells and whistles, I lost my gamecube launching ability. I went back through one by one turning all of the options off, then it worked after undoing "Region Free Wii Discs". I turned everything else back on, except for that one, and I could still load gamecube discs. That's how I narrowed it down. Its no big deal, (I only have 1 out-of-region game -- I cheat with gecko anyways), I was just putting that info here since I couldn't find a link to a bug tracker or anything. Thanks for the quick reply though. Poohead900 18:03, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
Hmmm... i guess i will have to contact the author and get it fixed. Thanks for the info.--Flyguy 21:01, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
I thought I'd add that if you can't play Gamecube games, use Gecko OS until a fix has been released.--SonicHyuga 00:36, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
Will the Region Free option allow me to play imports?
Will the Region Free option allow me to play a ntsc game on my pal wii?
what does "remove NoCopy Protection" do?--NintendoLover64 11:37, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes and the remove no copy protection lets you copy over the save files of games that dont normally let you. (i.e. Animal Crossing, Smash Bros. Brawl, ect.)--Flyguy 14:05, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
"getting file size...... error; -4" message when trying to install startpatch
i am trying to install startpatch4.1 on my japanese 4.1J Wii. my wii has homebrew channel installed, i can play my backups on my wii etc etc. i have downloaded the japanese version of startpatch, and load it through homebrew, try to install, and then it reaches a point where it says
"getting file size..... error: -4
returning to loader"
and then it goes back to the homebrew channel....
it wont install..... please help
I really like the "Ignore Standby" patch from Preloader, since I do use the Weather and News Channel, but doesn't like to leave the Wii in Standby (orange led) all night long. Is there any chance to see this patch in StartPatch? -- Raptor 14:27, 6 September 2009 (UTC)
NEW StartPatch To Update 4.2??
When the Startpatch to 4.2 come out? My Wii actually is 4.0, before has 4.1, but certain patches disability the GameCube games funcionality on Disc Channel and too some games was running at 50hz (black & white screen), then i have to remove the patch "Force Disc Region" to the my games run at 60hz (colors screen). I was a little disappointed with StartPatch 4.1, then i have to switch the firmware 4.1 to 4.0 to use the StartPatch 4.0 is very better funcionality!! Now, i want you update the new StartPatch 4.2 (with same funcionality of StartPatch 4.0), please!! -- T-Rex 21:43, 01 October 2009 (UTC)
- I too would love to see a new StartPatch! According to Preloader, the offsets have been identified. I wonder what is taking so long for this release?? — TiMeBoMb 14:41, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
- I have been working with "BlackAce83" and "zektor" on a NEW StartPatch v4.2. There are still some slight issues to be worked out, but it's coming along nicely. I'll let you guys know, when we have released it. — TiMeBoMb 16:34, 6 October 2009 (UTC)
- StartPatch v4.2U has been released! (EDIT: Oops! I forgot to sign my post!) — TiMeBoMb 13:40, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
