    so phpgeek & me agreed to combine our knowledge (altho he hasn't mailed back after agreeing and seeing the google code page)

    and here we go

    we present to you Priiloader. a preloader mod [​IMG]


    and now the links

    wiibrew : http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Preloader/Priiloader

    download : http://www.nyleveia.com/daco/dlpriiloader.php?ver=0_3b

    google code : http://code.google.com/p/priiloader/

    changelog since official preloader 0.30:
    * added autoboot Bootmii IOS
    * added Bootmii IOS booting option to menu
    * let Priiloader remount SD on a lot of occasions
    * try and boot the HAXX Homebrew Channel title ID if JODI isn't found
    * various file access bug fixes
    * priiloader no longer needs ES_DIVerify for system menu booting. however if a different ios is chosen to run system menu with it still needs the hack/patch
    * killed the DVD spin bug (crediar forgot to close the dvd drive in ios)
    * fixed file booting (thx phpgeek)
    * added our own installer (phpgeek's) which still has various bugs
    * fixed THE bug of beta thx to wntrmute
    * re-added the option to choose which ios you want for system menu but this time a bit different

    + 0.3b changes (see wiibrew)


    please report bugs decently if you find any >_>

    also, keep in mind that priiloader can choose which ios to use altho its completely useless if you fucked the system menu ios which is your own fault as it works with unpatched ios's [​IMG]

    and i have been thinking about re-adding a update method but that requires me to learn http parsing which could take a while [​IMG]

    Sounds like a good idea. Keep people from wanting the infamous "BootMii boot2" that can just as easily be used with or instead of PreLoader.

    Sick, I'll beta test this. I've got bootmii as a boot2, so I'm safe [​IMG]

    Please tell it more clearly that your mod runs well with an unpatched IOS60. Ok, trucha signed stuff(discs, sd menu) won't work with that, but the preloader mod and the system menu itself will with an unpatched IOS.

    Now if you test this, fix bugs if there are any, and most important, write an installer that runs from BootMii and won't require IOS messing, this would a great milestone as big as BootMii or preloader itself.

    Yeah seriously, I think WiiPower said it right, this is shaping up to be a huge accomplishment.

    sorry I didn't follow, what exactly requires the system menu IOS to be trucha patched? Does anything require it to be ES_Identity patched (other than older versions of preloader).

    if i could make an installer that doesn't need patched ios i would've done so long ago as im against cios,cioscorp or any ios patching (and yes, i dont pirate on wii)

    i know there is mini but using that sure is on hardware level coding and im NOT going to start with that without bootmii as boot2 >_>

    @0ld8oy : my bro had the same. im guessing you are using cioscorp? sadly i have no idea why it does that cause i have no idea where/what it crashes at. im guessing SD card but i doubt it... (worked fine with my crappy SDHC card...)

    On regular preloader you need ES_Idenitfy/ES_DiVerify on the system menu IOS(60) to be able to idenitfy as the system menu, which is an unnecessary step as preloader is started as system menu and then identifying as that changes nothing.

    Both preloaders "need" a trucha patched IOS to allow installing trucha patched stuff. Playing a warez wad from sd menu involves installing that to the nand. And for some reason you need a trucha patched IOS to run trucha patched discs from the disc channel, while regular wads and IOS can be even unsigned and run fine with all IOS.

    It's not that much hardware level if you get source code from some app that writes to the nand filesystem. I think that code is inside the nand formatter. Anyways, if you don't do it, somebody else will.

    Important: Do not use the new libogc, there's some sd card bug in it. To get back to 1.7.x you also need devkitppc r17.

    Well brkirch, the guy behind the latest Gecko OS, noticed some error and uses the old libogc for Gecko OS because of that. When i compiled Gecko OS with the latest libogc, some games(retail games, no patched IOS) were not working.

    Also i have that great issue: When i compiled BlueDump with the new libogc, it created a wad file on sd card, my pc could not read(!). And yes, i could reproduce it and with old libogc i could read the file.

    They're talking about rev17 of libogc, which is the Wii homebrew development SDK (or something like that =P). They're not talking about rev17 of priiloader.

    EDIT: Sorry, its devkitppc, not libogc.
