    help installing preloader

    4.2u


    i have installed iso36 with the dop, done the iso70 patch

    done everything that was listed in Full hacking guide for 4.2 system menus

    i've downloaded preloader and i'm not sure where to put it on the sd card or how to access it, it says to hold reset during start up phase but its not working

    the file name is preloaderv0.30r3-phpgeek.dol

    i'm just not sure what to do with it

    thank you7

    Hi darnock,

    preloader 0.30r4 is available: http://www.wiihacks.com/wii-custom-s...r-0-30-r3.html

    First, make a folder inside the Apps folder that resides on your SD card. Name the new folder Preloader0.3.

    Copy the preloader.dol file to into your new folder.

    Rename the preloader.dol to boot,dol so HBC can see it.

    Now, place the SD card back into your Wii, go the HBC and you should now see and be able to run the preloader installer.

    kauha-no, .dol files are accessed through Homebrew Channel. .wad files are installed using Wad Manager.

    hey its okay, and thanks everyone for all the help

    i got it installed but it keeps saying it cannot find the hack.ini file
    i'm not sure i installed it, i'll make sure its in the folder in my apps

    also i can't find a faq for the loader

    i'm at the .30's option menu and i see this

    autoboot
    ret to
    shutdown to
    stop disc
    light slot on error
    nore standby setting
    system menu ios


    do i want YES on stop disc? is that what loads patches on real disks?

    thanks everyone!
