    I found interesting quote by Slowking in this thread:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=112115&st=0

    Is it technically possible to do that?

    i think theoretical it's possible. But a WAD Manager that uses IOS16 need to be created.

    I have been trying to figure this thing out for a couple of days now. I do not think it is possible with the current WAD Manager by Waninkoko. Maybe, I'll post some questions if I find the part of the code to change. That way I might be able to come up with a new version of WAD Manager.

    And, yes, I have the pink fish disk on my computer and have IOS16 installed on my Wii.

    Maybe it's useful for current 3.3. But nintendo can release 3.3 update again to fix IOS16 a few days after. This method is too easy to fix and can help a few people only.

    Hey "knowitall" how's your new improved Wii web browser coming along? [​IMG]

    alpha, ninty specializes in 2-3 month "improvement updates" look at the last ones, june-october, and while not totally, it has been worked around for the people that were smart enough to not update.

    Anybody know what this means so I can compile and test my version of WAD Manager.

    C:\Users\Blaine\Downloads\WAD-Manager_v1.3_src\wad-manager>make
    Makefile:13: /opt/devkitPPC/wii_rules: No such file or directory
    make: *** No rule to make target `/opt/devkitPPC/wii_rules'. Stop.

    More specifically, what is the opt directory doing int the makefile? I do not even know what opt stands for let alone it's purpose in a make file that is otherwise perfect.

    create an opt directory and then a devkitPPC directory and copy/paste the wii_rules file in there.
    or edit the makefile and get rid of the opt. *if opt is listed many times, might be easier to just copy/paste the file/s needed.

    see what happens.

    change the path in the makefile according to your installation of your devkitpro... it seems the above makefile assumes devkitpro is installed right in /opt folder...

    Can you compile a Wad Manager based on IOS254 (PatchMii_core) ? [​IMG]

    Well Nintendo takes usually about 3 months to roll out updates. At this time Bootmii will be long since out and there'll be no need to have vulnerable IOS-versions anymore...

    But there is no version of Wad Manager (and cIOS installer) compiled to use IOS254, right ?
    Sigh..soob..sniff..
    For the Wii with last Nintendo firmware and NO cIOS installed..a selection of IOS default (store in a configuration file in the SD root) during the start would be great!! [​IMG]
