    Is it coincidence that it was taken down during this discussion? Probably, but that's funny.
    Give credit where credit is due. If it helps you, click "thanks" on ANY guide I link.

    I noticed that; is there any estimated time when it will be back up? Should I wait for it, or go ahead to 0.4?

    It will be back up when the bug in the installer is fixed. Yes install 0.4.

    yeah... I'm aware of that...
    But I wanted to make sure about this very particular case...
    I only read ONCE (wiibrew) that it was highly inadvisable... And not the usual "inadvisable"...

    Its just different... Not the casual "install this .wad at your own risk. this can brick your wii."
    It was more to a "DOING SO WILL BRICK YOUR WII FOREVER AND IT SHALL BE IRREPARABLE"


    Aaaanyway. My real doubt is: on wich case above, the process shall risk my wii? Certain brick risk or regular cIOS-installing risk?

    --

    About the release..
    Just because of an installer bug, they are taking this long to put it to downl? Strange...

    Priiloader is great for us bootmii ios' group. I still use v0.3 without issue. Enable block disc/online updates, and only install wads I created myself or am sure of the source.

    Yes the problem is with the installer. If its installed its OK.

    They are narrowing down the issue. Its to do with no ios reload, ios58, HBC. and whether you have internet settings in your Wii.

    Strange thing is no one has posted the error on this site, so its not that common, but if one person can get it.

    Its said that removing the no ios reload from the xml cures the issue, but Daco is reluctant to post that, as he wants to fix it if he can.

    0.4 is OK for now, and we lucky people on 0.5 can feel smug.

    I added priiloader 0.5 to my guides, 12 hours latter I had a bricked wii. So I dropped it down to 0.4. I sure am glade I have internet configured on my wii, because I don't have boot2 bootmii. I suppose removing the no-ios reload and using the patched ios36 is the simplest solution, but I will wait for an official fix before updating it to the guide again.

    Yes mauifrog, it was a really neat way of installing, no patched ios required, very simple. Pity, lets hope its sorted, soon.

    Hope all is well with you btw.
