    crediar a released a new beta of his system menu replacement

    CODEFreedom v0.2b by crediar (7/21/2009)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Many tanks to ajd4096 who donated me an USBGecko!

    Thanks to WiiPower for USBloader testing.


    IMPORTANT NOTE:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Freedom REPLACES the system menu COMPLETLY, there is no way to access the system menu
    as long as Freedom is installed. See the uninstall section for information to restore
    the system menu.

    The installer requires and IOS with both the fakesign bug and the ES_DIVerify
    functions working. The installer will try to load the following IOS and will use the
    one that loaded for Freedom: 250, 249, 36, whatever IOS the installer got loaded with

    I know the GFX isn't fancy but I'm no artist that's why I made the GFX loadable from
    FAT so anyone can make a nice GFX.
    In future version it will also be possible to change the positions of items.


    WARNING:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    THE AUTHOR CAN NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THIS TOOL MIGHT CAUSE!
    YOU ACCEPT THAT YOU INSTALL THIS ON YOUR OWN RISK!


    What is Freedom and what the hell does it do:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Freedom is a complete System menu replacement which currently has these features:

    -Wii Disc loading (any region)
    -GC Disc loading (any region)
    -Channel loading (any region)
    -WAD Importing
    -WAD Exporting (Channel backup)
    -Savefile exporting (no importing yet!)
    -Changeable GFX
    -Changeable button layout for Wiimote (Sideways/Normal)
    -Following Controllers are supported: GC/Wiimote/Classic-Controller (All ports)
    -Loading Covers for Games/Channels see cover section for an explantion how to use them
    -Changing most SYSCONF settings
    -USBloader support, press Right/Left to select a game
    -Tons of USBGecko debug output

    more features are planned


    Known Bugs:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Savefiles Export/WAD export lists sometimes display incorrectly just scroll down
    or up to fix that.


    Install:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Please copy the freedom folder on your SD/SDHC card otherwise you won't have any GFX!
    Run the dol with any loader you want and follow the on-screen instructions.


    Covers:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Covers are loaded from any FAT device Freedom can find and works like this
    "/cover/ or /front.png"

    a Channel example:
    "/cover/HAXX/front.png"

    a Game example:
    "/cover/RMLE/front.png"


    Uninstall:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The simplest and safest way to remove Freedom is to reinstall the System Menu
    using the built-in WAD importer.


    GFX-Filenames:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    all names should be selfexplaning _s means selected

    See http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=167...t&p=2136374 for my screenshot. I loaded it and it seemed to work fine. I was also able to unload it using a System WAD without any issue.

    Im not gonna install this until it has been worked or something else, the term "System menu replacement" and "Beta" shouldn't be in the same sentence. [​IMG]

    Just paranoid, no update at Wiibrew yet.

    This sounds so awesome! But I ain't gonna try it now, I'll wait till some people report for it and when it is developed more.

    Disc loading and the integrated USB loader are the same section under Game. You just use the direction pad to the right or left to go from game to game.
