    Must not be good he never reported back.lol


    haven't tried it myself nor do i plan to, but it sounds like startpatch but with the benefit to be able to add your own hacks.

    tried it last night, but when loaded it says i cannot find sd:/banana_hacks.txt
    i placed banana_hacks.txt in root of sd card as stated by the readme file.
    What i did was rename the 4.0 PAL file (my region) hacks from hacks folder in the pack to banana_hacks.txt and copied to sd root... did i do something wrong? do i need to edit the txt file in some way or another?
    please lend a kind hand if you can [​IMG]

    i will happily be a tester.

    Are you using a SD or a SDHC? Is it formatted with FAT or FAT32?
    I think the code I used it's not compatible with SDHC (I'm not sure, I don't have a SDHC so I can't test it).
    It was very hard for me to unmount the SD and let it work with the System Menu (it would be useless to use the no-protection savegames hack without having SD enabled on Wii menu).

    ps i copied the whole of the 4.0 PAL hack file and renamed it to banana_hacks.txt and put it on root SD, should i have edited it first? thats all i can think has gone wrong. i followed instructions thouroughly.

    looks like it, if i can ever get it to 'find/see' the file it needs to boot!

    so if you get a disc update notice before starting a new game, run the banana, and skip it! all without any permanent changes.

    hmmm the banana_hacks.txt.txt seems highly probable, i renamed and added the .txt to the filename but it was already saving as .txt file so could have happened.
    i will try renaming it 'banana_hacks' with filetype set to .txt as soon as i get home hopefully will work then, thankyou.

    found sys menu v418 ios60
    loading into memory....................ok


    then crashes = screen goes mental with squiggled up letters you cannot read covering screen in lines from top to bottom.
    cannot do anything, wiimotes will not turn on.

    pressing reset button boots straight back to HBC which is handy though... [​IMG]


    going to change screen resolution to see if it helps

    ok.... changed screen to 50hz and tried without widescreen and same thing happens but takes up less room on screen (obviously)
    any suggestions?

    going to try different sd card now.

    I have a PAL Wii too (but with 4.1), and an user from another forum with a NTSC got it working with a 4.1 too. So the problem must be something related to the file.
    Please do these tests for me:
    * Make a copy of your banana_hacks.txt (the one that doesn't work).
    * Delete everything in the file and save. It will become 0 bytes.
    * Open the file and add any letter, save. It will become 1 byte.
    * Reopen the file and add a new line (carriage return) with enter, save. Tell me if it is 2 or 3 bytes.
    If it's 2 bytes then the file will never be readable. You need an OS or a text editor with DOS type linebreaks. If it's your case, send me your banana_hacks.txt.
    If it's 3 bytes then, delete everything again on the file and copy a small patch (Move Disc loader for example) to banana_hacks.txt file and run Banana Patcher.
    I hope it works. Then start adding only the patches you will need.

    ok, i got bored and updated to 4.1, i used startpatch to let me move my disc channel and skip health check but still want this banana patch to work so i can use the other hacks as temporary hacks.
    I will try the 4.1 hacks file, and if that doesnt work i will follow your pointers in previous post... I am at work again but will try when i get home.
