    A continuation of Leathl's Wad Manager Multimod

    Features added

    Hold +/- for 2 seconds to select all items in a directory.
    Supports Hermes v4/v5 cIOS. Mainly useful if 202 works best for your HDD/SDHC card.
    More detailed failed report after batch un/installs.
    Will not uninstall The System Menu, the SM's region EULA or rgsel, or their IOSs.
    Will not install the wrong regions SM.
    Will not load stub IOS.
    Will not install titles if they rely on a stub IOS
    Will not install stub SM, EULA and rgsel IOS.
    Will not install SM lower than 4.0 on boot2v4 Wiis.
    Gives a warning when uninstalling the HBCs IOS.
    Read config file from usb.
    Can load an alternative background from /wad/background.png
    Won't load incompatible cIOS in SNEEK

    Not a feature: I've heard some say no wad manager works with SNEEK. This one does if you don't have any incompatible cIOSs installed.

    No need it got it [IMG]

    Nobby: Very nice! I'm going to be checking this one out tonight (if time allows [IMG])

    Keep it up!

    OH hey, quick question, does this Wad manager read multiple partitions? 1.5 official does not, but 1.4 expanded does. Basically my WBFS is the first partition, and Fat32 is second, both are primary... however 1.5 doesn't find the partition... i'll check it out myself at some point if you can't answer, i'm just curious for now [IMG]

    Thanks. I'm just jiggling my partitions around and testing that for you.

    It worked with first partition as WBFS and second as FAT32, but only mounting the drive as USB not USB2. I didn't remember to set the fat partition as active though.

    Edit: Disregard that, it works fine. I had a non USB2 cIOS installed.

    I'm planning on it, but don't know which route people would like to see first. I definitely want to put in SMB and wiiload support. Which one would people like me to try to do first?

    Cios on ios 57 Wad install Error 1029

    Wad uninstall works fine


    install Cios on Ios 38 and Yawmm works fine with Waninkokos new Cios. All other Wadmanager to.

    cfg Usb Loader is not starting with installing on ios 38

    USB Loader GX starts and reads WBFS/FAT32. PLayeed Games from WBFS not all, same Problems as with rev.17. Fat32 Games hang on in blackscreen.


    Now I stay at rev.17 after 2 is not functioning for installations! The question remains whether the coders really want to do the work to rewrite everything because Waninkoko or avoid directly on Hermes?

    I've just had a play myself and it seems to only install fakesigned wads if IOS38 is used as a base. Doesn't hermes's v5 cIOS have the same problem?

    I've a similar problem with my SDHC card. If you have IOS202 merged 60 (as used by mplayer ce) it should work fine with your card.

    Allow file execution when press "A" on DOL or ELF file, when finished will back to WadManager.
    if possible "B+A" it will ask to select IOS to use for execution.

    Thanks it does work for fakesigned wads as 202 merged 60. The only channels i use are custom/homebrew forwarders so i dont think theres anyway to have them not fakesigned... is there?

    btw i posted wrong it is infact ret = -1029 not 24 or 26. I was just hoping for a fix with R18 as 57 base [IMG]

    And that wouldn't work for a lot of apps, I could launch them with a different IOS and they'd just load the one they wanted anyway.

    Oh no my appologies, i meant still trying Rev18 base 57 249, 202 works fine and yes its IOS 202 hermes V4 merged 60 (Homebrew)

    Im guessing it only code dumped still due to the use of ios 249 rev18 with 57 base, im changing the IOS in my config file to 202 now

    Edit: wow i wish i would have used 202 long time ago, install wads is literally 4-5 times faster than 249 rev17 was!

    Could you add an auto-update feature to YAWMM maybe?

    I'm planning a network update option (that's why the Current boot.dol is always at the same place) but I'm not sure about auto-update. Doesn't trying to use wifi crash the Wii some cIOSs if you don't have a connection set up?
