    i understand that homebrew apps are not perfect but i was just wondering if there is any way to fix a few minor annoyances.

    #1 is after installing priiloader, my wii no longer actually goes back to the system menu (when you see the black screen with the silhouettes of the channels) but it instead just goes to the health screen. i have the autopress A hack but it's not the most elegant solution. would updating priiloader fix this?

    #2 when i press the power button on the wiimote the screen goes black and the remote unsyncs . the wii is still on and has a green light so i have to manually get up and hold power down for several seconds to turn it off. this one worries me because i found it like that one morning and was worried about overheating. is it just the backup launcher i use or are all of them like that?

    i dont expect a solution to either problem, but it would be nice to restore that functionality.

    #1: Use the replace health with backmenu hack instead. It's much cleaner looking.
    #2: Depends on the app, I've found. Not all handle the power button correctly. There's not really much you could do unless you went and fixed them yourself.

    4.2U:
    Code:
    [Replace Health Screen with Backmenu]
    version=481
    offset=0x81656FF4
    value=0x81409C9C
    4.2E:
    Code:
    [Replace Health Screen with Backmenu]
    version=482
    offset=0x816572B4
    value=0x81409D98
    If you need it for some other version, just search for Replace Health.

    for #1: doesn't it seems like he has autoboot: or return to: to something other than the system menu in his priiloader settings? at least that's what I gathered with my limited understanding of it

    No, he has it on System Menu, but he doesn't like the Auto A hack. I don't like it either. It looks nicer to have the Backmenu.

    hmm i wasn't aware of that hack. i have priiloader .1 so my hacks list is probably old. should i get the latest 4.2u or will it not work unless i upgrade priiloader?

    What menu are you on now? Just use the hack for the corresponding version. No need to update your entire Wii for one hack.

    yes, but the bugs are not present in priiloader v0.1 (which is what the OP is using)

    the bugs introduced in priiloader v0.2 (rev30) have been fixed in rev46

    we weren't talking about usb loader gx, we were talking about priiloader... re-read the posts

    fyi, usb loader gx is on rev 900 or something like that, not on 1.0

    alright the priiloader backmenu hack worked flawlessly, and about the games not powering off properly i tried wiiflow, and cfg usb loader and they have the same issue. pressing power on the wiimote fades to a black screen but the wii is still on. would a different cios fix it?
