344w ago - It appears Waninkoko's Nintendo Wii Backup Loader have finally been publically leaked.

naes of GBATemp.net (linked above) has posted Wii_Loader.rar weighing in at 1.80 MB (1,892,832 bytes), and since then it has spread like wildfire across the Internet.

Download: Nintendo Wii Backup Loader / Nintendo Wii Backup Loader [Mirror]

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

Nintendo Wii Backup Loader Leaked to the Masses!!

I merged your posts... regarding your question, I believe there is such a list at GBATemp.net, but I took a quick peek and couldn't find it so if anyone does feel free to post/link to it below.

you know if there was a solid softmod i wouldent mind paying for it as im sure others would as well... but im more interested in using the wii as a multiplayer game for company... real gaming is on the ps3 or 360 or even the pc for a little crysis action now and then.

i applaud the efforts of so many on this front as opening up my wii is not something i really want or care to do..nor the ps3 for that matter! homebrew allows for so many venues.. like media streaming and integration of my portable and electronic devices around the home! now if i could only figure out how to take over the world... lol.

I've compiled extractpartition for Linux systems.

To get it working, change to the directory where you downloaded it and do these in the terminal:

Then the usage is:

The tool will say there is a error at the ending but it still worked fine.
I compared the MD5s of a Battalion Wars ISO made with Waninkoko's Backup-Creator and WiiGator's extractpartition and they matched.

It's still in an experimental phase. And most errors come from the converter (which is not always able to convert the wanted IOS on the image.)

Give it a little time... it will become a succesful loader
