(would be nice to get this sorted)

    You do know that you can use .elfs for channels right? The Wii can read both .elf and .dol. (Just rename it to 00000001.app)

    But for your question:

    For the most part, for each app, there should be a sourcecode to go along with it. You would have to edit that, im guessing with the C++ language. Here is where you would put your command in. I dont know where it would go, but this is the place. You could use notepad probably.

    Afterwards, you would have to recompile everything, which would create a .dol and .elf

    I do not know how to do any of the above, I just know how it works.
