    So I've been reading searching along online and many posts. I haven't found a solution so decided that I should ask it myself.

    I have Priiloader 0.9 installed (no errors during its installation).
    I can go into the menu screen (pressing RESET while starting the WII).
    I am able to go into (general) settings and change the toggle settings (like background color).

    My problem is that:
    1. "Installed file" option does not work. I says something about autobooting file not being found.
    2. "System Menu Hacks" does nothing when clicked. No errors. Just nothing.

    I really want to do number 2 (no pun intended lol).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Keep in mind im a WII noob (never used one before this week)

    I can provide WII details later if needed.

    Thanks.

    Hello. 1111xmas_wink.gif

    For 1.Which File/Application did you have installed/tried please ?
    For 2.Did you tried the Wii Buttons "POWER" to move up/down and "RESET" to Change too ?


    When you look on the Main Menu Screen below please,which Release Version Number do you have please ?
    It should say

    IOS v80
    Systemmenu v513 Priiloader v0.9 (r0x03225439)


    Thank you.:)

    Probably missing the hacks_hash file on his SD card (or you are using the front power/reset buttons on the wii, to access the system menu hacks you need a wiimote, gc controller or keyboard)

    Also, one needs to install a dol as file before being able to launch the installed file

    Not if they were missing from the SD card (or HDD) during installation IIRC

    Seems so. Had to install the hacks manually from FAT32 USB on the Wii Mini during 0.9 beta phase.

    Unfortunately,I cannot understand the "Error" and it is not comprehensible for me.:(
    Since the 0.9 official Release I have installed/updated the previously installed Beta Version on 4 Wii´s (1 NTSC and 3 PAL all with 4.3x and Modells with GameCube Ports) and I can use the Hacks without SD Card and HDD.:unsure:

    Sorry if the "error" is not clearly explained (I am new to Wii hacking).

    When I have a chance later, I will provide more details and show what I mean.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hope I understood that correctly… I'm not really good at Wii.

    Have a look at the Github release page.
    https://github.com/DacoTaco/priiloader/releases/tag/0.9

    There is hacks_hash.ini – this has to be copied to NAND. Once installed to NAND you won't need any USB or SD. Maybe the installer does this automatically when it finds the file. I had to copy it manually somehow and from there on any future Priiloader update should not need it (only if you need to update the System Menu hacks as well).

    What OP is trying to say is that he wanted yo try "SYSTEM MENU HACKS" but Priiloader only shows: hacks_hash.ini
    not being on SD.

    OP doesn't has a problem with Priiloader being or not on NAND... he's just curious to use SYSTEM MENU HACKS.

    @Timka Ain't that what you're asking?

    I'm away from the Wii now, but will later send a pic of what I see.

    Basically,
    1. I can get into the Priiloader boot screen (will send pic later).
    2. If I scroll to "System Menu Hacks" and click it (using reset button), nothing happens.
    I have the hacks_hash.ini both in priiloader and on root.
    3. Only error message i can find is when I click "installed file" (will send a pic later), the screen shows an error saying something about autoboot file not being found.

    I think there's an option to install the hacks file to NAND.

    I mentioned this before, but I figure quoting Daco himself may communicate it a bit better

    correct.
    Priiloader checks the hacks in this order :
    SD -> USB -> NAND
    when saving the hacks it saves a copy to NAND so that after saving it once, it can be removed from SD/USB as it'll just load the one saved to NAND.
    however, if you changed the ini and want to use those, you need to save them to SD and save in the menu again.

    the installer does nothing with the ini during an upgrade install, so previously saved hacks.ini gets reused.

    did you install a binary before using that 'installed file' menu?

    I installed Priiloader in Homebrew.
    Not sure what binary you are referring to.

    Also, selected "Load / Install File" does nothing.

    Man this is such a simple fix. First, use a wiimote, gc controller or usb keyboard. Then, before trying to launch the installed file (aka dol), install one!

    If you are able to access system menu hacks but the list appears empty or incomplete, make sure you have hacks_hash.ini saved to the priiloader app folder and try again.

    Hello.:)

    With a little "Update".


    Maybe because I have installed the first Beta(s) and only updated then....or I had the .ini File on the SD Card and I "accidentially" hat connected it to the Wii.....:unsure:

    Today I have modded a PAL Wii with the str2hax Eploit.
    Then I have installed the Priiloader from the Guide
    including the hacks_hash.ini from the SD Card.

    After removing the SD Card and booting the first Time into the Priiloader and choosed the "System Menu Hacks" I get the Error Message like @Timka

    Then I re-inserted the SD Card,adjusted some Hacks and saved.
    After that I can now remove the SD Card,it is saved on the Wii´s NAND.

    And also,I can not access the "System Menu Hacks" with the Wii RESET Button,honestly,I did not have noticed it before,very,very sorry,very careless of me.:huh:


    Thank you.:)

    I will try using the remote when I have a chance later today. (I tried using the wii remote before and didn't see the pointer so I had figured it didn't work on the screen).
    Will try again and let you know if it works!
