    Hi!

    I decided to install preloader today to make my wii as brick safe as possible. Everything seems to have installed fine, But with the default hacks.ini, only 1 hack is listed and working (skip disc update check)


    I was wondering how to get more hacks, or if someone has an up-to-date hacks.ini?



    also, lets say I ever decide to remove preloader, I am aware it moves the actual system menu to a different spot, and if I reinstall the system menu, it simply replaces preloader....but what happens to that system menu that got moved? is it still there after just taking up space on the wii's Nand?

    After you install a new system menu, run the hack remover tool. That will delete the last traces of preloader from nand

    Thanks sess. [​IMG]


    Even preloader .29? I have read on this board that the hacks remover does nothing for that one. Is that true?

    ANSWER:
    Ah, so they use the same ios. good, no worries there.

    UPDATE:

    I believe I found the hacks remover, is this it?

    Its not quite named the same as my old one (lost it because of hard drive failure), so I'm not sure, just like to verify.

    Hi there?

    I was looking for some hacks (actually, I need the IOS reload to put some games to work on my USB Loader - like Medal of Honor 2 or SSX Blur) for preloader and I found in a spanish forum this:
    So, I didn't figured out how to make them work on my wii 4.0 NTSC! Anyone here can "translate" these codes to preloader understand and apply this hacks?

    P.S.: Sorry any english mistake, I'm brazilian and my english is awful!

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello!

    What about the IOS Reload code that I paste above?Is there any way to make a preloader hack with that code?

    Thanks!
