    Thanks. I thought it was quite neat that you could run applications from dvd, so I made a nice little guide.

    What do you mean by replace the update dol? You mean like boot multiple apps? I'll look in to it.

    EDIT: Found this. Interesting, though he never did get the actual menu done...

    So you're saying that you only have to replace the dol in one partition?

    The first partition is always the update partition. So I think there is no need to replace the main.dol in the first partition. I also read somewhere that the replacement files must be the same size as the original files otherwise trucha signing won't work because the iso file size changes. Is that true?

    The guide above specifies how to do it but is too advanced for most people and takes a lot of time.
    And a simple mistake can make it useless. I think I'll wait till someone makes an easy gui program before I add it. [​IMG]

    Have you ran the wiikeyset.reg and set "Custom key set 1" as your keyset?

    Don't think you can, but someone could try using wiiscrubber and see if the emulator would read the disk. It probably won't work as a wii disk is in a special format but you can always try.

    Anyway I'm off for today. See you tomorrow guys!
