Starting the System Config Tool

The System Config Tool is built in to the SDK. You may use caferun, cafediscrun, or the cafeon commands in the Cafe Cygwin shell to start the System Config Tool. For information about each of the commands and situations when you would use one command instead of the others, see caferun, cafediscrun, and cafeon.

Start the System Config Tool by Using the caferun Command

To use the caferun command, at the Cafe Cygwin shell command prompt, type the following:

$ caferun $CAFE_ROOT/data/mlc/sys/title/00050010/1f700500/code/system_config_tool.rpx [option]

Start the System Config Tool by Using the cafediscrun Command

To use the cafediscrun command and the title_id, at the Cafe Cygwin shell command prompt, type the following:

$ cafediscrun -e h:1 -t 0x000500101f700500 [option]

OR

To use the cafediscrun command and the application name, at the command prompt, type the following:

$ cafediscrun -e h:1 -t $CAFE_ROOT/data/mlc/sys/title/00050010/1f700500/code/system_config_tool.rpx [option]

Start the System Config Tool by Using the cafeon Command

If the System Config Tool is the default application, when you use the cafeon command, the System Config Tool opens when the devkit (CAT-DEV or CAT-R) finishes rebooting. To use the cafeon command, at the command prompt, type the following:

$ cafeon

Using the System Config Tool

When a setting is highlighted and the setting has an asterisk (*) on the left, you may change that setting directly in the Root Menu. When the highlighted setting has an arrow (⇒) on the left, when you select that setting, a submenu is displayed with additional options. When a highlighted setting has a double-chevron (»), a dialog box is opened that asks whether you want to perform the task.

You may use a Wii Remote, Wii Controller Pro, or Wii U GamePad (DRC) to navigate the menus as follows.

Button Navigation
+Control Pad Move the cursor up, down, left, and right.
A Button Select a setting, move to the submenu, and confirm setting changes.
B Button Go back to the previous menu, and cancel setting changes.

Depending on the menu, a software keyboard may be used and/or buttons other than those listed in the table may be available. Information about how to use the software keyboard or buttons is displayed in the message field at the bottom of the screen or in a pop-up window.
