== 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|hacks_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)
If you have any further questions, suggestions or anything then please contact us at the [http google codeGithub] SVN GIT page, #priiloader on [irc://] or dacotaco's forum on [ http://forum.dacotacothrough]
== Known Issues ==
*Priiloader Rev47/48 (0None.3 or 0.3b) can hang the Wii while loading a DVD in the System Menu. Rare bug, mostly seen with hardware mods. reports are [ found here].*System Menu seems to be unable to update itself when Priiloader is installed from DVD or Online (not hacks related). either ES,DI or title problems (confirmation needed)
