    If it has been already compiled then I probably missed it, but I doubt that.

    Has anyone compiled the recently released Preloader 0.3 Source?

    If not...... could someone please do it and uploaded it

    Much thanks in advance.

    Oh ya... is 0.3 compatible with v4.2 sytemmenu? if not could someone JODI patch 0.3?

    There is no point to upgrade if JODI patched preloader.29 is working.

    the source has been compiled but doesn't come with the installer parts so it's a waste of time

    it's the easiest thing in the world to compile it. It's almost just as easy to change it to JODI for the HBC. (took me 20 minutes to find devkitPro, get it installed, change the source to load JODI for the HBC, and compile it)

    The problem is that the released source code does not include the code used to install it! You know... the unimportant code that moves the system menu location and patches the system menu IOS with the ES_DIverify or whatever it's called.

    I could give you a .dol that works great when you run it from the homebrew channel, but that's not really what you want...

    Ah... that odd.. why would they release it if you can't install it?

    Unless someone can implement the installer from a previoius version.....

    or create a custom installer?

    Why not just install it as the autoboot .dol file in preloader 0.29? Surely that should work?

    maybe he didn't release the installer aswell to prevent that 1000s of preloader mods turn up.
    Without the installer someone must be smart engough to code a working one before he can release a public working preloader mod.

    Would this be possible? How about if you had the fully working versions of each IOS (ie no stubs) and you could have multiple versions of System Menu installed somehow, a modded preloader where you could choose which one to boot?

    I haven't tried, but I suppose doing this would work:
    1. Install a older Preloader
    2. Use FS Toolbox to overwrite the installed Preloader DOL with the 0.30 one
    3. ????
    4. PROFIT!!!!

    Using FSToolbox to upload files is slightly dangerous, because it doesnt rewrite file tables or something. There's an explanation on WiiBrew wiki page.

    It's not useless. I'd like SDHC support, please. And I don't give a shit about JODI, I'm not updating.

    does the mediafire link include an installer? If so, where's the source? crediar released the source under one of those public licenses, which means whomever is taking credit for this MUST release the source as well.
