I Have some Questions about Preloader 0.29 for 4.0:

1: What will be, when Preloader 0.30 release? Will it overwrite the old one?

2: What mean that Hacks?
Code:
[Disc auto start when right pressed]
version=418
offset=0x8137A818
value=0x2C000002
[Disc autostart]
version=418
offset=0x8137A800
value=0x48000020

3: Will Preloader makes Bricks with BootMii, when its released? (Because there is no Preloader Remover)

4: When I have a new Hacks.ini, will it automatic overwrite the old one in the Nand? Or will it only add the new Codes?

5: It is safe to patch IOS60 first with the IOS60-Patcher and then with Preloader?

greets, boy2048

1: It will probably have some uninstall routine for 0.29 and below. Or a guide or whatever...

2: If I'm right, they will allow you to use discs as recovery dvds.

3: Nobody knows until BootMii is released

4: Overwrite. But I dunno what happens to activated hacks...

5: I had no problems running the IOS60-Patcher before installing Preloader 0.29

Answers, as I know them

1. Preloader 0.30 is already in dev, but we don't know a release date. If it is like previous versions, you can just run the .dol from HBC of the new one and it will install over the old one.

2. Those hacks apparently allow for direct booting to the disc without starting the system menu, but I can't get them to work either.

3. Very little is known about how BootMii will work, but hearing about preloader 0.30, they may be very similar. I assume something will be done to allow for BootMii installation with preloader already installed, but know knows

4. If you have a new hacks.ini, you have to place it in the root of the SD card, then run the preloader installer again. The new file will be copied onto the NAND, and then when you load preloader with the reset button, the latest hacks.ini will be loaded.

5. I believe that you *have* to install IOS60 first, but I could be wrong. It is certainly safe. It's what I did and I have had no problems.

Hope those answers help.

Another Question: Is the Hacks.ini so right?

Code:
[Skip disc update check]
version=418
offset=0x8137EDFC,0x8137EE00
value=0x60000000,0x60000000

Just wanted to say that drmarvin is right on #5. Install the patched IOS60 first, then preloader.

You'll get a system files are corrupt error if you install the IOS60 after preloader.

If you do make the mistake and install the IOS after preloader, use preloader to run HBC, then reinstall preloader from there.

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
