== What is Priiloader ? ==
Priiloader is a modded version of [[Preloader]]. Just like preloader, Priiloader places itself in boot sequence before the system menu. By this priiloader has the ability to:<br>
*Patch memory just like [[StartPatch]] or [[Preloader]]. [[Preloader/Priiloader/hacks|Hackshacks_hash.ini]] should be on the sd rootin sd:/apps/priiloader (only once, they get copied to NAND) and can be found [[Preloader/Priiloader/hacks|here]].
*Save wii from banner & other kind of bricks that aren't ios/boot2/nand corruption related
*Start something else than system menu on power up (a dol file, bootmii, homebrew channel)

*Fixed Hacks.ini bug when it was made in linux (or any ini that doesn't have windows' \r\n newlines and uses \n instead)
