    I thought this would be the best spot to put this mostly because a backup loader wouldn't doing this necessarily as this would be a separate type of hack.

    The idea is to modify the Home button menu to not only show Wii Menu, Reset (Wii), Wiimote options BUT to also add a button that would forward you right back to your USB Loader of choice. Maybe a direct link to the Loader you have in your menu channels?


    This is more of a nice little time saving feature than a necessity but thought it would be cool and others would enjoy - if it is possible to create.

    It may be possible for System Menu, but you'd have to patch every single game/channel with that home menu.

    I mean, IF you:

    -Install Preloader
    -Install a forwarder .dol or a full .dol of your favourite Loader of your choice
    -Set Preloader to Autoboot this .dol
    -Set the Return to Systemmenu

    You have this. Launch a game with Wanins cIOS, then in the Home Menu press Reset, dang, youre back in your Loader. What you want is nearly impossible to do. And you can already have this (like I described above).

    Btw: It's realy usefull, I love it [​IMG].

    The home menu that you see in game is programmed in the game, not the system menu.

    As a small concept, you could patch a game on the fly with an edited home menu. Should be possible I think.

    once the usbloaders integrate the new geckoos source, should be possible.
    considering there are now trainers out there which patch on the fly using geckoos.
    so, i'm going to believe that an option could be created for usbloader to patch the home menu.
