    DIY CSM TOOL Beta (UPDATED)

    SUPPORTS NTSC AND PAL

    Ok this is an alpha meaning more features will be added

    its like healthii and wadder in the way it runs automated

    to install this you need to have the softmii tweak installer and preloader installed (so in event of brick your ass is covered)

    this is a very early stage alpha so you use at your own risk i have tested many times on my pal wii
    now in beta loads of bug fixes now done

    basicly it changes the "back to the wii menu" to anything you so desire

    run the installer then make sure there is no spaces in the title of your system menu wad as this wont let you extract from the wad

    type the custom text you want to replace in the system menu then browse to your systemmenu wad

    select pal or ntsc

    hit go then sit back dont touch nothing untill you get the "diy csm completed" message

    copy 00000045.APP or the 00000042.APP to sd card and install with softmii tweak installer


    full vb6 source included


    here is a video of it in action

    shit almost forgot most of the tools used here are from the healthii project so shout out to them hope they dont mind me borrowing them

    I think this is pretty good. You know what would be really awesome though, a combined 'System Menu Editor'. Using Healthii, Pressii, and this into one tool.

    Call me lazy, but I just think it would be convenient. Hell, if there was command line options for these programs, Id write a GUI for unifying all these

    Lol, funny.

    Homebrew is growing at an exponential rate. We went from twilight hack, to homebrew channel, to crappy backup loading, to gamma, to cioscorp, to softmii, to csm. I guess the ultimate goal is BootMii(complete control of Wii, not in piracy sense).

    Hmm looks like i need to come up with another name for my CSM automation tool. Nah, better yet ill just leave the tools to others, by the time i finished with mine to edit everything there will already be a tool to do each part one at a time. Actually this is cool. One less thing for me to worry about doing [​IMG]

    FYI for anyone hand editing the system menu that missed my last post on this (or jack post on it for that matter) this is just editing a csv file.

    you need to copy the wad into the installation folder then restart the program and do it again then check C:\DIyCsMTool

    no longer need to to do this
