Since I am new at this, a friend help soft mod my Wii (4.3u). I noticed now that some discs will not play, since the
system is looking for a "system update". Obviously, I do not want to do this.
I have the HomeBrew channel installed and also can read my backed up Wii discs on USB.
Although i will be mostly be using the USB loader to read my wii disks, I still want to occasionally
run the discs directly.
My searching has noted that the solution appears to be installing Priiloader to: "Block Online Updates" and
"Block Disc Updates".
I found Priiloader v07 and downloaded it in a directory on my PC. I also found file hacks_hash.ini and also put it in a directory
on my PC.
The directions stated to put the Priiloader v7 in the root of the SD card under the apps directory.
I did this. My first question is when I unzip it, do I put the files EXACTLY the way it unzips into the apps directory??
There seems to be too many files and directories and a subdirectory called "Extra" which I wonder what it does!
I next put the SD card back in the Wii (I did not copy the hacks_hash.ini file to SD card yet).
When I started the Wii, I went into Homebrew. I did not see "Priiloader" listed".
Am I missing something? When Homebrew was installed initially, "Priiloader should have been installed with it??
Are there any steps that I am missing?
Is this safe to do? Is there a backup that I need to do first before installing this?
Any help for this newbie would be greatly appreciated!

There should be a folder named say priiloader with a boot.dol within it, this needs to be placed in the apps folder. The hasks.ini needs to be on the root
