    Assuming you have BootMii/boot2 installed, it will run before Priiloader. If you don't... I dunno.

    i have bootmii installed as IOS.
    and the only way i know how to load the bootmii menu is from priiloader or HBC/Home button
    are there any others?
    it seems to not even look onto the SD card before it asks for the password

    Down under
    Look at the posts further down (comment 12) that giantpune noted.

    Some report...
    The Mod works like a charme, it's easy to handle.

    Using:
    You install a file "password.txt" (sd:/password.txt), in the first Line you must put
    the password (a-zA-Z0-9), the second Line is the Backdoor, you write a filename like
    test.dol or asd.txt to check for. If the file is found on fat (sd|usb), the passcheck
    is true. If you dont define a filename, wii_secure.dol will be set.
    You can set the passcheck for Systemmenu and/or Priiloader at the settings.

    At the moment only a german Version exists. But i can compile a english version with
    this feature an post the link to test?

    take out the CMOS battery? If it helps. Most likely no.

    Check comment 30. Might be a way for you [​IMG]

    Put FS Browser as ${SD}/wii_secure.dol and delete "password.txt" or whatever from shared2.

    Totally agree with that comment, giantpune. I backed out of priiloader's password setting screen as soon as I found out it wasn't a block on changing priiloader's settings but on the total accessibility of the wii (I had an experience once where A) a PC didn't have the CD-rom as a bootable device in the BIOS, B) the BIOS was blocked with a password C) the windows partition was messed up beyond repair and D) nobody knew the BIOS password. In other words: 't wasn't the best day at the office).


    Glad to hear there's a backdoor in this case. [​IMG]

    yea it worked perfectly.. i just put any .dol and renamed it to "wii_secure.dol" onto the SD ROOT,
    and it booted right up into the .dol.. it was a close one..lol

    and @ Wever, on a PC the cmos battery can be removed or u can use the jumper to reset the cmos to factory settings..
    dont think the wii has a feature like that.. it would be equivalant to a curropt cmos on a pc where it couldnt load anything.. in that case it would need a cmos firmware flash...

    Thanks for the tip. I remember switching the cmos battery (didn't work), but the jumper thingy is new to me. [​IMG]

    The tip came too late to save the PC, though.

    the battery just makes sure all the BIOS settings stay set when the system is powered down, otherwise they'd have to be configured each boot.
