Well I made this page but i had no part in making this application. Plus credit must go to the others that have edited this page and made it better.--Flyguy 14:04, 22 July 2009 (UTC)


I give you some massive reps for this. Preloader always bricked my Wii, but this didn't and the hacks did work! Thanks, -TPAINROXX/BKW 01:38, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

No problem! :-P I just made the page and the reals kudos should go to aquilino. Heck, I kinda enjoyed making the page!--Flyguy 14:28, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Just a question

What about using this app in 3.3/3.4 Wiis? Starfall works only on 3.2 Thank you anonimo200 12:00, 23 July 2009 (UTC) —Preceding undated comment added 10:33, 23 July 2009 (UTC).

ahhhhh!!! Sign your posts!! :-P now that that's over with... No unfortunately there is no 3.3/3.4 startpatch. :( however I would either downgrade to 3.2 with any region changer or just update to 4.1 as 3.3v2 and 3.4 have no benifets over 4.0/4.1. Sorry--Flyguy 14:18, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for your quick replay and sorry for not having signed my post (corrected). I'm on 3.3v1 and probably will update to 4.1. anonimo200 19:00, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

AHHHH!!! wait dont. if you havent already install waninkoko's cIOS rev13b BEFORE you update as the 4.1 startpatch requires it. and no problem about not signing posts (hence the :-P)--Flyguy 19:55, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Yes definitely wait, because if you're on 3.3v1, then there's still a trucha enabled IOS in there, you should be able to downgrade to 3.2 with AnyRegion Changer.-Kage Korosu 21:59, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Don't worry, wanin's cIOS installed. And no intencion to downgrade (I haven't till now, why should I? 3.3v1 has trucha bug in all the IOS but 30, -correct me if I'm wrong-) And probably I will not upgrade either. No need to access SD from Menu and don't play games, just homebrew. If it works it's better not to touch it ;-). Thanks for your help.anonimo200 14:13, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Patches don't install

When I try to install any patch, it just says "The patch section was not found in the DOL. Nothing to do." Is it a bad download or something? Swift Finch 18:52, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

That would usualy mean you are either trying to install (A) a patch that is already installed or uninstalling (B) a patch that was never installed--Flyguy 19:55, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Ah, alright. I was trying the press y on gc controller one, but I guess it interfere's with preloader's version. I'll try to change that next time I turn on the wii. Thanks mate. Swift Finch 22:16, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Well honestly i would get rid of preloader altogether and use this. But thats just me as i have bootmii boot2 so i only need the hacks. plus (once again) this wont let the disc spin forever.--Flyguy 00:19, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

I just like to have as much brick protection as possible. I also have bootmii boot2, but I like to be safe. And is there an easier way to do this? I'm really not in the mood to reinstall the system menu and everything, because simply uninstalling the preloader hack of the startpatch hack I want to install doesn't work (if that makes sense). Swift Finch 16:32, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Unfortunately I believe that the only way to uninstall preloader is to downgrade with anyregion changer or to reinstall just the system menu.--Flyguy 16:00, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Its not that hard really. You actually dont even need anyregion changer. Just get the system menu wad with NUSD and install it with wad importer or certain other apps...--ChuckBartowski 04:24, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
I know, I'm just a lazy bastard and didn't want to reinstall my themes and everything. But I did, and StartPatch is now awesome. Thanks everyone. Swift Finch 12:55, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Error -1024

As soon as i attempt to start the program i get that error and it goes back to Homebrew channel i have BootMii installed if that matters —Preceding unsigned comment added by TehHacker (talkcontribs) 23:25, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Do you have the requirements? What System Menu are you on?--Flyguy 16:03, 27 July 2009 (UTC)


Hey just FYI, on 4.1U, "Region Free Wii Discs" Kills my Gamecube functionability. Don't know if this was a problem in preloader too, just decided to point that out. And a hefty thanks for letting me rid myself of the whole "my wii spins up all night if I leave a disc in problem". Kudos. -- Poohead900 (n00b) —Preceding undated comment added 01:50, 29 July 2009 (UTC).

Hmm... Didn't know that. Unfortunately I cant help you there. (I don't use region free discs) however do you have anything else (non-startpatch) that could cause this problem?--Flyguy 13:48, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Nope, Startpatch is the only thing that I have running on it at the moment. (Removed preloader with anyregionchanger down to 3.2U then back up to 4.1U). After I turned on all the bells and whistles, I lost my gamecube launching ability. I went back through one by one turning all of the options off, then it worked after undoing "Region Free Wii Discs". I turned everything else back on, except for that one, and I could still load gamecube discs. That's how I narrowed it down. Its no big deal, (I only have 1 game out-of-region -- I cheat with gecko anyways), I was just putting that info here since I couldn't find a link to a bug tracker or anything. Thanks for the quick reply though. Poohead900 18:03, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
