    Another feature that could be added to the table is the ability to load real disks. I know GX and WiiFlow can. I'm pretty sure PostLoader can't. I don't know about CFG but I kinda think so.

    ALSO, the ability to show multiple partitions/devices at once ... I know GX can and WiiFlow can't ... not sure about the others.

    Postloader can run retail GC or Wii disks. It's just not an automatic thing. You just open up the bottom pop-up menu and hit run disk(make sure you have a game in first).

    Hey, I just confirmed, GX returns homebrew to channel, even if you have the normal ppcboot.elf in the bootmii folder.
    The nice thing about having the modified one, is that even GCN games return to loader when using the DML button combo.

    You don't need a modified ppcboot.elf file for that, you just have to edit bootmii.ini. You could do the same thing with Priiloader.

    I thought the only options there were SM or HBC:

    # Autoboot, possible settings:
    # SYSMENU, HBC

    Are you saying I can put my channel ID in that line and it will launch it?

    Actually, I tried that and it did not work.
    How do you suggest modifying bootmii.ini to accomplish this?

    ABZ:
    Unless I'm missing something, USB Loader GX only supports d2x cIOS's. Whenever I've tried a different one, like 38rev17, upon trying to load a game, a prompt appears stating that only d2x is supported.

    Oh, I thought you were saying it would return to the Homebrew Channel. You do need a modified ppcboot.elf if you want Bootmii to launch any channel.

    Actually, it comes in a 222 version as well as the 249 and 250 ones and I'm pretty sure other 249's work. You just can't do nand emulation without d2x.

    Around somewhere
    Wiiflow can hide titles if you edit the gameconfig ini file..

    Also wiiflow has internal configuration.

    That's not an acceptable method for hiding stuff, so doesn't count
    Yes I know it has internal config, but you need to edit the ini using a text editor for paths and stuff, in GX you can browse/select target folders and edit pretty much everything.

    I must say it's a very nice comparison chart you've made there, AbdallahTerro. If I could vote to like it twice, I would have. :)


    My vote went to postloader. On neek2o, I'd say it still has the best of...well, of anything, actually. It wasn't until wiiflow 4.0 that I considered another loader even in the same league when it came to xneek (yes, joyflow and the neek-modifications of CFG and GX could load you a game...but that was pretty much it).
