As a result of the leak, Waninkoko is now quite upset, and announced that he no longer plans to work on the project- meaning very likely no new versions of it will come.
To quote: Backup-Loader is now an abandoned project. Congratulations, enjoy that version that has lots of bugs (yes, lots of bugs are not fixed).
How to use it:
1) Patch the iSO with the .exe that came in the download
2) Install the CiOS on your Wii
3) Install DVDX. Go to Advance and choose 249
4) Install Wii Loader
5) Burn the patched iSO with ImgBurn
6) Run the loader
Don't lecture me about valid statements until you can learn to spell being.
Anyway, for someone to think Waninkoko is the only one in the world capable of expanding on this is ludacris. A quick Google search turns up several sites with Wii hackers already working on reversing the .dol loader and I'm sure it will only increase as more see the potential and desire for their minute of fame... personally I could care less though, Wii is for kids.
I guess I will stay with my wiikey (and be very happy so far)... Doing all this process is way to difficult/complicate for everyday carefree user. IF they really follow the step correctly and succeed in it, I think they are in the "scene" for pretty long time already, rather than a newbie without any modchip at all. I guess it is good education/lesson for all of us who is interested in these kinda things...
Personally I don't see the point in this softmod - I mean there were already modchips, there was way to load backups. This softmod is buggy, unstable, irritating to use (every time you should go to HBC...) and in the all ways modchips are superior - great stability, LOTS of features and so on.
It's just for VERY poor and lazy people.
AND THE MOST HORRIFYING, that now Ninty will block HBC for sure. Last time they blocked Twillight Hack, but didn't touch HBC, so homebrew scene was alerted, but now Waninkoko crossed the line.
WiiGator has released his own source code. To quote from the ReadMe file:
Wii Backup Launcher 0.1:
* Purpose *
Launch Wii DVD backups. This is a source code only release. You need to
compile it using devkitpro (PPC + ARM).
* Author *
* Compiling Order *
Run "make" to compile:
3. copy dip_module/bin/dip_module.elf to cios_installer/data/dip_module.elf
* Create DVD *
To create DVDs you need extractpartition. Don't call this patching. It only
decrypts the DVD. Patching is done within backuplauncher.
1. Run extractpartition
2. Burn output file to DVD-R (raw iso)
* Installing *
1. cios_installer - if you get an error message like "-1017" then you need first to uninstall IOS249.
2. dvdx, choose IOS249
3. backuplauncher cios_installer will install a custom IOS v6 which is same as Waninkokos cIOS v5. You don't need to install it, if you already installed cIOS v5.
In this release there is no leaked code included. Only official code is used.
This is released by WiiGator. The official released dip_module, IOS patches and libcios are used. Other code from Waninkoko is not used!
Waninkoko is not responsible for this release. Don't ask him about it.
The backuplauncher included is an inoffical release. This program is a modification of GeckoOS, and is unsupported and not condoned by the original authors of it. The backup loader modification is solely the work of WiiGator. PAL and NTSC is working. backuplauncher can load both original and backup discs.
Also, ciper of GBATemp has shared Wii Backup Launcher 0.2, an unofficial binary build of WiiGator's source code with changes.
