    Priiloader Help - Cannot use Reset

    Hey guys - long time lurker here So I am trying to breathe a little life into a beatup Wii. Disk drive is shot, so I wanted to set it up for playing via USB. Going great but one big problem.... I'm trying to get Priiloader setup but I can't boot to it. The Reset button my Wii does not work! Is there any other way I can get Priiloader to start or get get my settings in there?? Help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I am pretty sure you are out of luck there.
    Fix the button.

    I believe there is an app called magic word, that goes in the app folder on your sd card .

    This will let you use it from there.try downloading it from the homebrew browser.

    Could not find a live link for you. Sorry.

    P.s. I just checked through HBC and the magic word isn't there either.

    I'll try looking for Magic Word, thanks! Sounds perfect for what I need, just having trouble finding a download.

    I really don't want to put any more money into the system, wish I knew what was up with the Reset button. I figure worst case though, since the disc drive doesn't work there's no need to block Disk Updates. If I don't connect to WiFi it won't ask for updates there either.. so it should be set *lol* Just having Priiloader for completeness would be nice

    Thanks for the help! I was able to find a download of MagicWord here:

    magicword.zip - priiloader - MagicWord , an example app to show how to boot into priiloader 0.2 or above from a dol - Preloader MOD - Google Project Hosting

    Installed and used it, worked perfect. Got it all setup.

    I know this is an older post but I have the same issue. I downloaded the file and not sure how to install. Can someone help a noob?

    Okay, i installed the files into a folder called Magic word in apps folder. It didn't show up on HB channel. I looked at the other apps and they all used Boot.dol, so i renamed the file called magicword.dol to boot.dol and it worked!
