Very new to Wii, a few no brainer questions
I just bought a Wii yesterday for the sole purpose of hacking it. I don't know much about the Wii, so i have a few questions. Some of them might be no brainers to you but remember that I've only had one for a day.
1.) The Wii can install channels and games over the internet so it obviously has some sort of internal memory. I've noticed that all homebrew requires some sort of external storage device rather that be an SD card, USB drive, DVD ect... Why is that if the Wii has internal memory? I've also noticed that the Wii measures internal memory as "blocks" which honestly i think is stupid but whatever. Anyway how much memory is equivalent to one "block"?
2.) What would be the best means of viewing/editing system files (relax, I know what I'm doing, I'll most likely just edit a few strings, customization is all, maybe be like "Injection is awesome!" on startup instead of the health warning stuff).
3.) Is it normal for the PS1 emulator to be lagging? I know the hardware on the Wii isn't amazing or anything, but you would think it would be able to handle PS1 games lag free.
4.) Is there any way to install homebrew apps saved to an SD card as its own channel?
I don't expect 1 person to answer all these questions (although that would be sweet). Also, I'm very computer savvy, I've programmed for iOS and Linux, I just don't know anything about the Wii :)
