Freedom REPLACES the system menu COMPLETLY, there is no way to access the system menu as long as Freedom is installed.

From the NFO File:

Freedom is a complete System menu replacement which currently has these features:

• Wii Disc loading (any region)
• GC Disc loading (any region)
• Channel loading (any region)
• WAD Importing
• WAD Exporting (Channel backup)
• Savefile exporting (no importing yet!)
• Changeable GFX
• Changeable button layout for Wiimote (Sideways/Normal)
• Following Controllers are supported: GC/Wiimote/Classic-Controller (All ports)
• Loading Covers for Games/Channels see cover section for an explantion how to use them
• Changing most SYSCONF settings
• USBloader support, press Right/Left to select a game
• Tons of USBGecko debug output

Known Bugs:

The Savefiles Export/WAD export lists sometimes display incorrectly just scroll down or up to fix that.


Please copy the freedom folder on your SD/SDHC card otherwise you won't have any GFX! Run the dol with any loader you want and follow the on-screen instructions.


The simplest and safest way to remove Freedom is to reinstall the System Menu using the built-in WAD importer.

Crediar has released Freedom Public Beta 3 a Nintendo Wii System Menu Replacement, be careful and read the readme if you wan't to install this.

What's new?

- Fixed cover loading on disc change (or slot change for USBloader)
- Fixed random cover scaling
- Included a standalone version of Freedom which works best with preloader, since that way you can select the IOS otherwise it will just reloaded the current one.
- Added more error output to the installer
- Added NAND space info to the settings menu (note:the Wii system reserves about 200MB)
- Added a config file to adjust all displayed items to allow more adjustable themes.
Check the supplied gfx.ini.
- Added code to detect disc eject/insert
- Channel loading is now done 'by hand' and not through IOS or via the NANDloader, this will allow ocarina to work with all channels(as soon as I find the ocarina code) (lz77 version 11 decompression code by TheLemonM )

Great work, and no offense is intended but it's just too ugly to want to use unfortunately. But worth watching for sure.
