'''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 Patcher''' is able to apply on-the-fly [[Preloader/hacks|Preloader patches]] to System Menu without installing anything to the NAND.
 
Some of the code was taken from Waninkoko's Menu Patcher.
 
  
Useful for:
+
Banana Saves needs an IOS with NAND permissions (any cIOS will work).
*Play your GC imports
 
*Copy your copy-protected saves to SD easily
 
*Move Disc Channel
 
  
Banana Patcher needs an IOS with trucha bug (any cIOS will work).
 
  
'''''WARNING: Banana Patcher doesn't modify your NAND. However, it's still a dangerous application so use it at your own risk!'''''
+
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 ==
Banana Patcher uses the same Preloader hacks file format. The only difference is that you must place the hacks file in sd:/banana_hacks.txt.
+
* Run Banana Saves with any homebrew loading method (Homebrew Channel is recommended)
Don't try to run Banana Patcher with a lot of hacks, because the Wii System Menu can become very unstable. Remove the ones your are not going to use.
+
* 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)
 +
 
  
In the hacks subdirectory you can find some example files, just take the one you need and rename it to sd:/banana_hacks.txt.
+
== 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 (<nowiki><!-- and --></nowiki>).
 +
And then edit the IOS number you want to use. For example, if you want to use IOS236:
  
 +
    <arguments>
 +
        <arg>--ios=236</arg>
 +
    </arguments>
  
== Predefined hacks ==
 
If you are only going to use the most important hacks just run Banana Patcher without the sd:/banana_hacks.txt file and you will be able to choose which hacks you want to enable:
 
* Remove the copy-protection of your savegames
 
* Move Disc Channel
 
* Gamecube Region Free
 
Banana Patcher includes these predefined hacks for:
 
* 4.2U
 
* 4.2E
 
* 4.2J
 
* 4.2K
 
* 4.1J
 
* 4.1U
 
* 4.1E
 
* 4.0U
 
* 4.0E
 
* 3.2U
 
* 3.2E
 
With the exception of Gamecube Region Free hack, which is not available on 4.0U or 4.0E.

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>
