    I haven't had time to build a full installer yet, as I have been busy fixing bugs, removing obsolete code and adding vital missing event handling to the v0.30 source. Until I finish the full installer, this tool will update any previous version of preloader to 0.30.

    I would please ask users with BootMii installed to boot2 and a full nand backup to "proof" this tool and post the result here. I do not recommend any other user to make a decision about using this app until enough "safe" installs have been reported. This tool comes without any warranties and I accept no liability if you turn your wii into a paper weight with it. I have tested this tool with 100% success on 11 wii's to date. Hopefully you will have no issues with it!

    Kudos: Crediar (source) and DacoTaco (additional mods).

    GREAT NEWS

    @phpgeek You rock!!

    Pre-loader is the best damn tool to come to the wii. Bootmii is pretty much useless to me because I can't install it to boot2. Pre-loader is my last hope if i brick (I have never bricked but nice to know it is there! )

    My above info rules me out of the testing phase. Glad there is people out there with bootmii/boot2 to test.

    Or try the JODI and HAXX patched one, like if JODI not found, itll load HAXX. And the BootMii IOS loader too.

    I'll test it out, but I'd like to know: what advantages will it give me and how will I know I'm running the new version [​IMG]

    Edit:
    0.30 Edits By DacoTaco:
    -added autoboot Bootmii IOS
    -added Bootmii IOS booting option
    -let preload remount sd
    -try and boot the HAXX Homebrew channel Title ID if JODI isn't found
    -renamed the settings file it accesses as this version changes stuff and still needs testing!
    0.30:
    -added SDHC support
    -added a new option to the "return to" setting; "return to: autoboot"
    -fixed a bug where enabled autoboot overwrote the "return to preloader" setting
    -removed netcode, online update check, online update code.

    It doesn't have Gamecube support, it can't scroll to the side using the D-pad for either controller [​IMG].

    And I have a quarter of a bar of battery left on my Wii-Mote lol. I'm poor.
