* Preloader 0.29 will be the last version - there won't be any new versions. Preloader does not support [[System Menu]] patches from SDHC cards.
* When the installer finds IOS60 it will patch in the ES_DIVerfiy function, so Preloader can load the System Menu with IOS60.
== WARNING ==SINCE THIS TOOL CHANGES THE WAY THE WII WORKS IN A WAY IT WAS NEVER INTENDED TO,THERE IS A RISK OF BRICKING YOUR CONSOLE.  I'VE DONE EVERYTHING I CAN TO ASSURE THAT NOTHING WILL BRICK.BUT THIS IS STILL NO GUARANTEE!!THE AUTHOR CAN NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE IT MIGHT CAUSE!YOU ACCEPT THAT YOU INSTALL THIS ON YOUR OWN RISK! == What is preloader Preloader and what the hell does it do ? ==preloader Preloader is a small application which places itself before the system menuSystem MenuIt's Its main feature is to directly boot the Homebrew Channel or a file you can installfrom a FAT device. preloader Preloader is also able to apply memory patches the system menu to remove limitations
or other things.
Since preloader Preloader places itself before the system menu System Menu any problems that would causethe system menu System Menu to fail are not causing your whole wii Wii to stop working.
If autoboot is enabled and you want to access preloaderPreloader's menu simply hold RESETwhile powering the wii Wii on.
== Hacks ==
included with preloader into the root of your SD card.
Then,boot into preloaderPreloader's settings, and chose to enable or disable the patches
in the Hack Settings menu.
== Uninstall ==
The simplest and safest way to remove preloader Preloader is to reinstall the System Menu using AnyRegion Changer or a WAD installer. You can also use restoremii with the bootmii Bootmii app to reinstall your backup of your system menu, if you had bootmii Bootmii installed beforepreloader Preloader was installed.
== Greetings ==
there are way to many people to greet and before I forget
some I just don't list any :P
