Whats the diffence between those two and which should be installed on a Wii for better protection?
I'm pretty sure the only difference between the 2 is just the installer, otherwise priiloader itself is still the exact same horribly programmed app.
Then why does modmii want me to install the 236 mod when I have the regular one already installed.
When ahbprot is enabled they are identical. When ahbprot isn't enabled the default priiloader attempts to use IOS 36 to install. When the 236 version is used without ahbprot, IOS 236 is used to install.
Edit: I guess I didn't really answer your question. ModMii doesn't know what you have or don't have installed. It just wants you to follow it's guide. If you reinstalled a SM while following the guide, it overwrote your previous priiloader install however, and you would want to install it again.
The application runs on the native system menu IOS, this IOS236 mod just uses IOS236 to install it and not IOS58+AHBPROT as burritoboy9984 said.
It can actually use ahbprot still. Just depends on how it is loaded (with or without ahbprot access).
Interesting, good question why daco haven't added it like this by default.
When I asked him previously
lol. Well yeah I have IOS36 patched too but really, IOS236 is just some great way in my opinion. Well, this is how daco thinks and we can't change it since we are not the devs of priiloader.
I actually asked daco if he could re-release priiloader v0.7 but with davebaol's ahbprot network init. bugfix applied to the installer (instead of bundling TT's copywritten dvdx with his installer for his workaround method). He said he had already done it but wanted to wait to add more features before releasing it. Anyways, I asked jskyboo to have a stab at updating the priiloader installer code, and he got it working safely via ahbprot (using davebaol's workaround) and anyone can get it from here:
there's no real benefit to using this over the priiloader 236 installer, it just means u can install priiloader before installing IOS236... but installing IOS236 isn't dangerous so there really isn't much difference.
WTF?!? Are you sure? Damn thats a rather crappy thing to do, but it honestly doesn't surprise me given his nature. What a dink.
He probably justifies it to himself by thinking "Well everyone hacking their wii is just pirating games anyways".
yea, a little more info on priiloader v0.7+DVDx can be found here:
there was another thread where the handful of lines of code he borrowed were identified but I couldn't find it.
Yep, this 'please wait while we init' means he uses AHBPROT to install a copy of DVDx, then installs priiloader and removes it again.
Meh, I don't see what the big deal is. DVDX is public and I wouldn't hesitate to share links with others in a PM or something. You can't get DVDX from TT anymore.
As far as I am aware it is not open source, hence why XFlak used the term "Copyrighted". You don't see what the big deal is because it isn't your code. Although, knowing you, even if it was your code you would not give a shit because you'd be happy knowing that people are benefiting from using your code, but it would piss you off if someone shared your stuff without giving credit.... which is exactly what DacoShmuco is doing.
Oh, I didn't realize that. I am very much against using code without giving proper credit.
Before anybody mentions it, I kept Settings Editor GUI closed source for awhile (except for devs who requested it via PM) just because I was kind of proud of it (I am a newbie, lol), and I didn't realize I was using code that wasn't part of libogc. I had originally intended to release the source after a couple weeks.
I wouldn't share DVDX if it was still available from TT, but it's not, so I don't mind.
Oh but it is.... if you still have hackmii installer 0.6... like I do .... but I never bother using it.
There is no good reason to use DVDx. Daco is just being a dink.
Which isn't available from TT anymore. Besides, the version of DVDX that is good is from a much older version. It allows access to the SEEPROM for example.
Well not anymore, but before the network bug was fixed it was obviously of some use.
DVDX is good for people like me who still use legacy apps, but for the average user it is pointless.
Almost no one ever needs access to the eeprom. dop-mii gains access to it without using dvdx (afaik). MINI and ahbprot has certainly cut the need for using DVDX, hence why all legacy things have been deleted from wiibrew.
