    :blink:

    You are right. I doesn't know why there is that folder. I think it is coming from dolphin emulator. Sorry for that. Re-uploaded without it.

    Unless I am missing something the readmii included with the latest version doesn't exactly explain what I want to do, unless it hasn't be implemented yet. I mean is it yet possible to be able to autoboot to postloader2 and update postloader2 without needing an SD card?

    This is probably a bug: If a meta.xml does not exist in an app folder, postloader creates one without a proper xml header, resulting in settings appearing not to change.

    Also, I'm not sure if I'm doing this wrong, but when I try to manually arrange order of apps, upon pressing b it seems to crash.

    It shouldn't.... I will check.

    Also readmii must be updated. I will do it with 2.38 release.

    Can this be launched directly from BOOTMII? Such as if there was a brick but bootmii as boot2 could be accessed.

    You can have it auto boot using Priiloader and then for future release send the newer .dol folder with Wiiload or another app like TransmiteMii and it will update your Priiloader autoboot; this is my understanding.

    Yes kylster is right. If you send "postLoader.dol" via wiiload or any other app like that (TransmiteMii, sharpii and so on), postLoader will ask if you want to upgrade your installation.

    If found, usb://postLoader.dol, sd://postLoader.dol, usb://apps/postLoader/boot.dol, sd://apps/postLoader/boot.dol are updated.

    This works only if you have an sd inserted in the wii under real nand or uneek. If you use sneek it doesn't works.

    Haha, just don't ask me to do any work. Those 4 lines of code were pretty much 90% of postLoader2, so I'm good.
