Banana Patcher uses the same format as Preloader, but a different file.
 
You must place your patches file in sd:/banana_hacks.txt.
 
I included some examples in the hacks directory. Just copy your system Menu version and region to your SD and change its name, and then edit the file and remove the hacks you are not going to use.
 
  
For example, if I have a PAL Wii with a 4.1E firmware I need 41e_all_hacks.txt. Then I have to edit the file.

Don't try to run Banana Patcher with all hacks enabled, because you will only get the Wii recovery mode. Remember to remove all hacks you know you don't really need, leave the only ones that will be useful for you.

Banana Saves applies patches to the System Menu on-the-fly to allow you to copy your protected savegames to your SD card within the System Menu. It doesn't modify the NAND and has no risk. It's partially based on Waninkoko's Menu Patcher.


Banana Saves needs an IOS with NAND permissions (any cIOS will work).


It's compatible with:

  • 3.2 (U and E)
  • 4.0 (J, U and E)
  • 4.1 (J, U and E)
  • 4.2 (J, U, E and K)
  • 4.3 (J, U, E and K)


How to use

  • Run Banana Saves with any homebrew loading method (Homebrew Channel is recommended)
  • Select an IOS with NAND permissions
  • Wait and the System Menu will boot
  • Now you are able to copy protected savegames to your SD card (even if the button looks disabled)


Automatizing boot

If you are using Homebrew Channel 1.0.7 or later, you can automatize Banana Saves boot so you won't even need to select the IOS. Just open the meta.xml file and remove the comment lines (<!-- and -->). And then edit the IOS number you want to use. For example, if you want to use IOS236:

   <arguments>
       <arg>--ios=236</arg>
   </arguments>
