    Thanks- I haven't done Chapter 2 in that guide yet, so that's probably why. So i do the whole chapter 2 and should be good to go. Also, so i can put everything on a USB and put it in the wii and then the will can pull all from there, right? Or do i need to format, "route", set up the USB, etc to pull the apps, games, etc correctly?

    back up you data
    sd:\bootmii
    sd:\nand.bin
    sd:\key.bin

    no your not good after chapter 2 COMPLETE THE ENTIRE GUIDE

    Then check out Kranks guide for your HDD here:
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...g-playing.html

    also I run my apps on my sd and run my games off the HDD

    It should work for small emulators and so on but it wont work for lager file games and apps.. I suggest getting a external HDD.

    ** you must leave the apps on your sd or move them to USB. your gonna want a USB HDD anyhow. that way you can store all your emul,games, ect ect on there.



    ok, i partitioned my usb fat32/wbfs and fat32, so my wii wont recognize the fat 32 that i have all my apps on that i thought would show up on homebrew browser, but they dont show up...what am i doing wrong?

    your loader will have an option to "download missing covers" and it'll do it for you
