    Ok, I've just ported this to System menu 4.0. I have only done NTSC for now, I should do the PAL by the end of the day if Im up to it. No new icons/features were added.
    changelog:
    --Ported to 4.0U
    --Press A to continue is back in its normal place until I figure out how to get it back to the password box(hex editing the blryt i believe)

    Changelog 2:
    --fixed the channel management crash
    --yaz0 encoded the health.ash(to save space)
    --added PAL version(Haven't tested myself but it should work)
    --added all languages for the health screen

    Instruction:
    Install this with Softmii tweaks(I don't know if it will work with the other installer)
    Keep the file name as 00000072.app*******
    Please use preloader(0.29) because I'm not responsible yah dah yah...

    Find it here on softmii

    How would i install this on a preloader'd 4.0 PAL Wii?

    Do i need to get rid of preloader first or... :S

    im just a little confused.

    if someone could tell me how to install this on my Wii, i would be grateful.

    If you already have preloader, then just use the softmii tweak toy (dol/wad) and put the 000000XX.appWinXP***(xx = 72 or 75 due to your region) in the folder root/softmii/ and launch softmii tweak toy and press A on the 000000XX.app**** you want to install

    all you would to get back is the original 00000072.app / 00000075.app which you could dump before hand with fsbrowser or you can get easily by unpacking the 4.0 system menu wad and of course you would need preloader 0.29 incase of a bad install

    Ok i tested the PAL Version of the WindowsXP Theme.

    It works fine but has a big problem:
    The bootscreen is only in 4:3 and not in 16:9.
    Can you fix that?

    Just reinstall the System Menu?

    you can use crazy intro for 16:9 bootscreens, cause even the original bootscreen is 4:3 but you cannot see that as the whole image is black with some text on it...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ig22jSpPnOw

    But for me the TV looks like 16:9 and the bootscreen is in 16:9?

    No just install the original 000000XX

    XX=72 (NTSC)
    XX=75 (PAL)
