if it is installed and the proper hacks are set then yes.. you can accept and it should just error out.
Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more hereShift_Lock On Forum Issues - Vol. 1
First I would like to state that this is one persons point of view. It does not reflect this site (wiihacks.com) or any other staff/mod/or admin here. It is solely mine. Now even though a few may have similar points of view this should be taken as one person’s opinion. Also. This DOES NOT reflect all users and noobs here.. Just a select few personality types that pop in time to time. Let’s get started!
Outlook On Forum RulesNow I realize many of you did not even read the rules and just agreed to them.. Kind of like signing a legal contract without reading the clause that states you just sold your life away… It happens... When it does, YOU are still responsible and held liable for your actions. No matter how much you think its BS... It’s still on you. I for one am among those who did just that when I signed up here... (Shame on me I know) I to did not read them immediately (however I did speed through it to get a general idea)... I was quickly referred to them a few times do to not being thorough enough with “speed reading”...
Why we have rules on this siteThe rules here at wiihacks are here for a few key reasons. I’m only going to hit a few.
Conduct - We know it’s the net, and there are a lot of internet gangsters/bully’s/and plain jack ass’s... We don’t like that here. The ways users conduct themselves reflect the site... We want user to enjoy coming here but respect in general is needed. Flaming and such results in infractions/bans so don’t do it.
Piracy – This is a big one here, and no one seems to understand... First of all IT IS AGAINST THE RULES OF THE SITE! Which every last one of you members had to agree to follow prior to being a member here. Copyright laws vary from place to place so they are different for others. But we have to follow our copy rights here to protect our site. We DO NOT support piracy and will not assist in it. We don’t want to lose our wonderful site that you as a user come to, to find help. Big brother (the government) and big “N” (Nintendo) may be watching along with a vast amount of other private sectors looking to stop the pirating of copy righted material. Shutting down sites that support it are somewhere at the top of the list to reduce this.
Personally, I don’t care what you do... I don’t care what your online habits are or how much porn/software/media you download every day. It’s your computer and your life. YOU are responsible for anything that may occur from that. Users who lack a way with words to express themselves in what they are trying to do may get wrongly accused of being a pirate and these things occur: warnings/infractions/bans/threads closed/YouTube videos of dancing pirates/ and many many possible pictures pointing you out.
We as staff here are obligated to abide by and enforce forum rules. Whether we believe their valid or not. They are in place to protect the site and members of our community. I won’t allow a poor decision result in losing this site.
Cheating – Play Fair... I support it... Nothing I hate more than losing to a cheater... If I lose I want it to be because the other person was actually better. Cheating takes the fun out of the game... Why make it easier? Do you suck that bad at it? Don’t like the challenge? GET A DIFFERENT GAME! We don’t support cheats here. Users will not be given help on how to become invincible or walk through walls... you want god mode? Unlimited ammo? Go Google it somewhere else. Don’t ask about it here.
There are a lot of users/members that say “this is wiihacks wtf?” or "that’s the point in hacking a Wii”... No it is not….. We assist users in backing up their legally purchased games so they don’t get ruined in the future (we know how kids are)... Before backups I had bought 3 Mario karts! Ridiculous… Anyways, it also allows us to fully enjoy the console and the convenience that some mods add to the system. We make it custom and set it up the way we like it. Kind of like your pc. A lot of users buy the Wii just so they can do that! I will ban anyone who tries to argue that point... Dont be ignorant...
“So you Think You’re a Hacker”Warning: Spoiler below is a rant.
"Shift_Lock's Rant about the tough guys"Really guy? We are “Modder’s” at best... most users aren’t even that. A hacker would shut down this site with a single code line… Not sit here claiming he’s one arguing about rules and why he needed help... I’m not saying we don’t have members that are real “hackers” but face it... You aren’t one of them... Coders and developers are fantastic people that make all this possible. And some of those guys truly are considered hackers at some level. Now, could they hack the pentagon? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows... lol
The point of this is for those of you that come on here thinkin you’re hot [nice word]... If you were a hacker you wouldn’t need our help and wouldn’t need to hide behind a proxy or redirect to post your nonsense… Get over yourself and just follow our guides. If you can’t “hack” a Wii, what can you do? Can you hit the logout button? Try It! How about facing your fail and going back to the guides to read some more… Leave the “hacking” to the REAL hackers out there. /end rant
“Need Help?”That’s why you’re here right? To get help Modding your Wii. Some users can just navigate the site and never need to post a thing because they can search, read and are on some level tech savvy. Other users need assistance. That’s why we are here... To support and assist those who need the help to mod or to help find solutions to their problems. We like to help… but... We don’t always like to spoon feed arrogant people who demand help or can’t use the search function... If our search is too hard to use there is Google, and if you can’t use Google then you SHOULD NOT mod your Wii...
We see the same issues every day, same posts, same questions, same answers…. SEARCH FIRST!!! Read a little… Geez people! Too lazy to search for a solution, but can type a wall of text that takes 15 mins to read? C’mon man… step up your game... My spoon hand is getting tired, gonna have to just start [nice word] slapping people with it…
Don’t be lazy... Help us, help you... If you’re really stuck then we take no issue helping as long as it’s within the lines of the rules... The “grey” area is kind of tough... The staff is here on OUR own time and do not get ANYTHING for being here helping you... We are not paid and don’t see any part of the donations... The donations go strictly to site development. Can you fathom how much it costs to run a site of this level and host the files that we do? Everything costs money... Just not the staff here so remember that the next time you are impatient or lazy... We aren’t getting paid... We are helping because we want to... So keep your cool and dont lose your head... Don’t give us reasons to NOT help you. If you do, well... Then we won’t...
"Mutli Threads, Double Posts and bumping"Ok.. So It might not bother you but it bugs the crap outta me! It clutters the forum and makes you come off as impatient and ungrateful.
Mutli threads - Do you really need more then one?? Mods and staff see EVERY POST MADE! You only need one thread for your issue.. Dont create more then that..
Double posts - You have an "EDIT" button... it will be right under your post to the right.. it will say "EDIT".. say it with me now.. "Eh-d-it" ...... Use IT!!!
Bumping - If no one has got to you yet there IS a slim chance it was missed.. probably not.. As we answer what we know. so if we dont know, We will leave it for someone else or atleast contact another Staff member for assistance. So WAIT and be PATIENT!You can bumpAFTER 24hrs! and that it!!! I will infract/ban/scold/kick your dog/delete any users who abuse this after warnings....
More to come (without a doubt) so stay tuned for the next edition! Peace I’m out!
Thank you Shift_Lock for your reply.
Hi I got 1 quick question. When you install a new system menu or update priiloader to a new version, I know it will cause you to loose priiloader but does it make you loose your hack settings?
I am having trouble connecting to the internet. I first used dogeggs guide and Im quite sure there was a hack to force wifi to fail (which is something I would of done as I was paranoid of bricking my new wii). I have also heard of others unknowenly having the hack inabled and causing them to not be able to connect. scince then I have updated my modd and priiloader using manui's guide. But I would like to play black ops and the wifi fail hack is not there, I have tried everything to connect t the net and this is the last thing I can think of.

Can someone please advise me if it is safe to install priiloader on a semi bricked wii? To give a brief summary of this brick
- 4.2E and I can get past the health and safety screen maybe about 1 in 30 tries. sometimes black screen and sometimes freezes.
- the only channel that works is WiiFlow. official disk channel, backup launcher and HBC channel do not load at all
- I can sometimes get apps to work via bannerbomb method but even then the app crashes like 4 out of 5 times.
I was just wondering if it gave me the chance to install priiloader would it be install ok and would it help get me to the HBC?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
When i press reset so it goes to the menu but when i press A on System Menu Hacks it says couldnt find any hacks for v54450

I've searched extensively, and found so many different possible solutions for the issue I have that I figure the best thing to do is ask for current advice from what appears to be one of the better sources, "This guide was approved by DacoTaco himself." I'm going to try to give you all the information in one post, so hopefully you can help me easily. I'm getting the following error when trying to load Priiloader 0.4 (using both + and B+):
When I push A it says:ES_Identify failed, error 4294966279, ios58 not patched with ES_DIVerify? using cios (holding b and then pressing + or - } will probably solve this. NOTE: you need CIOS for this.
Do you wish to continue? A = Yes B = No Home/Start = Exit
I tried downloading and running Priiloader 0.7 and it's worse as I just get this error right at the beginning and then it auto exits:Continuing...
Priiloader system menu ticket not found.
Trying to read original ticket...
Unauthorized to get ticket. is ios58 trucha signed?, aborting mission...
Priiloader 0.6 gives me this:cIOS36 isn't ES_Identify patched : error -1017., aborting mission...
My DOP-Mii SysCheck appears to show no sort of modified IOS files, however in the FAQ in the topic of this thread it says:Failed to retrieve nand permissions from nand! IOS36 isn't patched!
Am I misunderstanding that? That statement sounds like you don't need any sort of patching. But do you really still need some sort of trucha patch? I would like to keep patches to a minimum as I have a Wode hardware mod.I heard that I needed a patched System IOS in order to install priiloader... is that true?
Not anymore, that was preloader that needed the patched System IOS. Now, all you need is a way of booting homebrew.
A little info on my current setup, I have a 4.1U and Multi-Mod Manager 13.4 and DOP-Mii v16 installed, and I think Priiloader originally worked when I installed it, but I have not used it other than the day I installed it so I can't recall. I do recall making a backup of my NAND and have that file on my SD. But it obviously appears I'm missing a trucha signed ios58 now? I remember using the bannerbomb to originally install the HBC. The only things I can think of that could have potentially caused this is that I recently upgraded IOS58 from rev 6175 to 6176 using DOP-Mii and I also downloaded a Wiiware demo called "FAST - Racing League" from the Wii Shop Channel.
But, what is also strange is that when I run DOP-Mii it looks like it installs a "New Trucha," and "ES_Identify" so I don't understand why Priiloader would be telling me that it's missing:
Here's my DOP-Mii Syscheck:Applying patch: DI ReadLimit - DONE
Applying patch: NAND Permissions - DONE
Applying patch: ES_SetVID - DONE
Applying patch: ES_Identify - DONE
Applying patch: Trucha (may fail) - FAILED
Applying patch: New Trucha (may fail) - DONE
Region, North America (U)
Hollywood Version, 0x11
Wii Unique DeviceID,
My goal is to get Priiloader working with a minimum of softmods or patches since I have a Wode. I just want it as a safety net.

one of the following cases must be true
1) you dont have the latest Homebrew channel
2) youre not running the installer from the latest hoembrew channel
3) you have disabled the AHBPROT (</no_ios_reload>) in priiloaders meta.xml
else 0.7 would've worked and wouldn't nag about 36
Thank you for the reply!
1) Homebrew is 1.0.8 IOS58 v24.32, is this not the latest? I don't get an option to update.
2) I'm running the installer from the same.
3) I didn't knowingly disable AHBPROT, wouldn't I have had to edit the file? I'm using the files download from here with no modification: Priiloader Download Page When I look at Wii System Info with MMM it says AHBPROT: FFFFFFFF. When I load DOP-MII it says "You have AHBPROT available for use," and when I push A it appears to use it.
Edit: I tried downloading it again, and now it works! Did you update the file or something? I was messing around with that for many hours the other day! Or, could it have been failing simply because I had named the apps folder "Priiloader 0.7" instead of just "Priiloader?" I had done that because I already had 0.4 named "priiloader" and wanted to try 0.7 before deleting it so they were both in the apps folder and needed different folder names.
I hope it wasn't something that stupid.

So, you solved the problem or not?
Yes. I downloaded it again today from the exact same link and now it works. I didn't change anything. And I just tested renaming the folder to "priiloader 0.7" and it still works. I don't understand what the problem was, unless the download was changed or somehow it got corrupted the first time.
