How to Play WADs from SD without GeckoOS
I have found that the System Menu and Many Wii Games don't like my SD Card with homebrew on it. For instance I go to save a ScreenShot in Brawl but it shows an error for the SD Card. So I recommend having a Seperate SD Card for Storing WW/VC/WADs that way you can avoid problems and leave more space on your Homebrew Card for, well... Homebrew. I personally have a 4Gig card for Homebrew and a 2Gig card for my WW/VC/WADs.

OR you have to Patch your Wii using StartPatch or by Installing Priiloader.
Both these methods Modify the NAND so be Careful. If you don't want to Modify the NAND use the GeckoOS method!
Get the correct version for your SystemMenu Version, then Install the Following Patches to Run WADs from SD
- Remove NoCopy Protection (Need To Install ALL Five) - Removes the Save File Copy Protection, which prevents Save Files from being copied to SD Cards.
I know it says Save Files but it works.
Once you have Priiloader installed You have to Setup a Hacks.ini file to get System Menu Hacks with it.
- Hacks.ini should be on the sd root(only once, they get copied to NAND) and can be found here.
Once you have the Hacks.ini set-up, Enable the Following Hack
- Remove NoCopy Protection Allows you to copy any save file, whereas some were protected by default
That's it! Enjoy!
