    Erm... just checked wiibrew... there is no 4.2 download link...

    Still says "In development NOW!"

    EDIT: just refreshed the page. Got it now.

    Is the source code available by any chance? I would like to port it to other region System Menus.

    Since the original author was unavailable, the source was based off of the v4.0.61 code.
    This v4.2U source will be available soon!

    Great news for everybody! Great day for releases today was [​IMG] Now we have a solid updated source for startpatch, and it shouldn't be a problem now to get it updated for future versions of the system menu as well. Long live startpatch!

    Big props to you guys. You took it to the next level! Drink a beer now [​IMG]

    The code works great, for this version, but it really needs a good overhaul.

    I still don't see this on the StartPatch page. Reloading it doesn't help either.

    Strange. It shows up in Internet Explorer, but not Firefox. Tried clearing out the cache and everything too.

    Oh well. Have it now. Thanks.

    Great work guys!

    Now please release the source so someone *cough* da_letter_a *cough* can port it over to PAL. (That is if you haven't got a PAL version on the way already.)
