    I know I shouldn't update blindly especially with the brick issue with v0.5 but curiosity hasn't killed this cat .... yet. Anyway, I updated via the priiloader menu update option with no problems except it says "can't find hacks.ini". However, there's a new option in settings: 'use classic hacks.ini' . Just change this to 'on' & you're back in business. There's something new with references to hacks_hash.ini but I can't find any idiot's guide on how to set this up. Anyone got a link as I can't find any beta download reference on Dacotaco's blog or his Google code pages

    UPDATE: Found this: http://code.google.com/p/priiloader/source/list but I guess I shouldn't play with what is work in progress & which I don't understand [​IMG]

    The last one shows the updated installer, and I don't know what's the point in the other pictures...
    Oh, and I would not use the priiloader package on the site, it could brick the wii.

    since Daco is (still) Banned , he asked me to post the following :


    the 0.6 beta 1 used to be available online for downloading trough 0.5 ; but is now not available anymore since he changed sha1 calculations which would result in the correct sha1 hash (see http://code.google.com/p/priiloader/source/detail?r=113 )

    there is however a download in issue 86 ( http://code.google.com/p/priiloader/issues/detail?id=86#c13 )

    HOWEVER

    he asked me to say it nice and big that

    ITS A BETA AND YOU SHOULD WATCH OUT WHAT THE HELL YOU ARE DOING SINCE BETA'S COULD DO ANYTHING

    but for him, t0rres and me it all works like a charm.


    also, the old hacks method is to be removed within 2 versions (0.6 introducing the new method : hashes + an option to use the old one, 0.7 removing the old method + the option )
    the new version is alot more flexible, portable and compatible . the new method works with pure hex hash from the app itself. meaning that just giving the hash it could patch any region from a system menu version (or a few hacks are just patchable on all versions since the hash is the same on all of them) see http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Preloader/Priiloader/hacks
    he would also wanted those hacks tested since he isn't sure if he ported them correctly (some were ported in a hurry or just very late at night)

    the file should be called hacks_hash.ini on SD, and when the old method is removed he's planning using the regular hacks.ini name again.
    the "use classic hacks" is indeed the option to use the old method, but daco strongly discourages anyone to use it over the hash method since the old method -WILL- get removed. and now that its still WIP its the time to test,fix and get users used to it instead of moving back to what they are used to.

    EDIT : @FIX94 : Daco asked not to share the link since it can and *will* be used by freaking sites/chinese fuckers to direct link to the file which can hammer his website

    Thanks for the information, I also thought that it's a bad idea to post it here because the link is not on the google code page.

    Thanks a lot lulwut for the enlightenment and the beta warning (but hey-ho some of us just like to live on the edge & enjoy the risk of trashing the little black plastic box).

    Actually I just tried the hacks_hash.ini from here: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/File:Priiloader_hacks.zip and switched off 'use classic hacks.ini' but get a syntax error. However, Priiloader 0.6 still works fine with the switch on.

    Yours irresponsibly,

    what was the syntax error? maybe daco had a mistake in the ini he uploaded (after all, he didn't intend to reveal it pubicly just yet)

    [​IMG] Oops sorry, my moronic mistake - there's 2 files in the zip & I had used the 3_x version. With 4_x it works fine.

    there was apparently indeed a syntax error in the 3x file. daco says he's working on it

    EDIT: its fixed. either get the ini from the wiibrew page or the svn (the svn ini is a collection of all the hacks, while the wiibrew ini has it divided into system menu versions)
