    Lightbulb Priiloader Hand Book

    Hopefully this tutorial will help answer most questions people usually ask about Priiloader and Preloader so here goes. Before I'd like to mention, this guide was written by myself as JoostinOnline.

    quick question. I installed everything but when I choose autoboot: system menu. It'll still start Preloader even if I didn't hold the reset button. Any solutions? At the moment I installed starpatch but I don't know if it's working and don't really want to test it by trying to update. I'm on 4.0u btw.

    can you load this on if you have already softmodded your Wii using other methods?

    Yes, once you have the supported system menu, you can safely install Priiloader or Preloader.

    I'm a noob and just bricked my first wii (installing wads on a 4.2, no preloader was installed). I am replacing it tomorrow. This time I just want to run a preloader and have it boot to a USB Loader for my USB HD (NOT use the system menu or wads at all).

    So.. prior to this guide here I'd be softmodding and installing a HBC using either the guide here (for up to 4.1) or here (if it comes 4.2), right?

    After that... if I want Priiloader do I install Preloader first? Thanks!

    No, you do not need to install Preloader before installing Priiloader. Just install Prilloader as shown in the tutorials.

    Gotcha. What had thrown me off was the directions for installing Priiloader within that zip file. It instructs to "To install additional System Menu patches, simply copy the "hacks.ini" file included with preloader into the root of your SD card." But there is no hacks.ini in that zip file. I see that in your preparation, above, I'll be grabbing a hacks.ini file first. Thanks again.

    I have a quick question, first of all i have system menu 4.2U, and in the link you provided with the code to make the hacks.ini file, in the one for my system menu, it doesn't include "Region Free Wii Discs", but it does include it in the one for system menu 4.1, can I use that one, or is it not needed in system menu 4.2?

    I believe this is region free for disc channel but since you will probably be using a backup loader, it isn't a big deal. Also 4.1 hacks.ini shouldn't work on 4.2U. You could always enable it yourself in Priiloader. From the priiloader main menu, go to system hacks and enable region free.

    Well that's the problem, in the system hacks there isn't even an option to enable or disable region free for Wii games. u_u;
