    Hi everyone,

    Is there any software for the Wii that allows me to set a password for boot, like the Wii U does nativelly?

    Thanks in advance

    Installing priiloader should do the trick

    What are you trying to accomplish? Maybe there's another solution.
    I don't think there's a homebrew that does that.

    Well one of the features of Priiloader is to set a boot password.

    I thought priiloader password was to enter priiloader xD Didn't occur to me it was for boot.

    Undesired people accessing my console, including homebrew channel.

    As far as I know you can set it up so that priiloader asks for the password everytime you boot your console

    But how do you enter the password? Wiimotes don't work in priiloader, do they?

    You need to create a file called password.txt and put it in the root of the SD card. It can only consist of letters and numbers and it has to be in the first line of the file. And yes, wiimotes do work, I wouldn't use a long password though, since you have to enter it with nothing but the D-Pad...
