Wii HDD booting / transfer question(s)
I haven't powered on my chipped Wii in about a year now. I do already have the homebrew channel installed (needed to do so because it was actually a JP Wii and wanted English). Anyhow, my wife actually asked me to get the New Super Mario bros, which from reading the comments needs to be loaded on a hdd to boot.
Seems like a good time to add the USB bootloader, no? So I have two questions.
1) Once the hard drive is connected, is there any way to transfer .iso files to the hard drive without connecting it back to the computer? Or for each game do I need to plug the external back into the PC to transfer it.
2) I am on a much older version of the Wii (currently 3.3U). Is there a way to obtain the latest (safe) update without going any where near the Nintendo updater?
Thanks in advance!
