    It can be used, but not always. Some people get lucky. Others don't.

    Which is why we recommend an SD proper (no adapters) no more than 2 gig, Sandisk branded, properly formatted (full erase using the Panasonic SD card formatter, not quick format) for maximum compatibility.

    Try your SDHC if you want, but don't come back saying "So and so said it would work and it doesn't, what should I do?" because I've already answered that question above.

    So I need some help in understanding IOS and cIOS still. I've seen hack packs, and they all say that you have to install a bunch of crazy IOS wads along with a bunch of cIOS wads. But now, can't I just install solely d2x cIOS wads (d2x v10 beta53alt wads) + a DIOS MIOS wad to get Wii/GC games to play of HDD? Do I need those IOS wads from hack packs ect?

    I already know about using Loader mod boot.dol files and setting up your HDD to Fat32 32KB clusters MMM ect. So is this the case: all I need for wads is d2x v10 beta53alt wads + a DIOS MIOS wad? I really need this answered please. Thanks.

    The files we supply in Softmod Any Wii are not always the most current (many have been in beta for some time), but they are the most stable and what we recommend for most people. It doesn't do anything with playing GameCube games from USB, there are two other guides to handle that (Dios Mios and Devolution and most likely at some point in the future "Nintendont" once we've had time to play with it. It's not out yet, so that will take some time before we're ready to write a guide on that one).

    Some people have specific problems with specific games, where we then suggest going to one of the beta cIOSs.

    But for most people, we suggest the following set of cIOSs:

    I don't really know what the top 5 IOS's are about but, I just recently did a nand restore and used solely d2x v10 beta53alt wads + a DIOS MIOS wad in MMM. I used CFG Loader (mod) and games loaded fine from HDD still.

    But then I got thinking that cannot be all I need, so I used a
    microwavesam hack pack (minus his old loaders/forwarders), along with d2x v10 beta53alt wads/a DIOS MIOS wad. So really I just wanted to know if what I did the first time was fine how it was, without the hack pack wads (in which I am sure you could image what a long list of IOS/cIOS were in the hack pack).

    The top four are Hermes cIOS (as opposed to Wanniko's versions or the d2x equivalents). 236 is simply a patched copy of standard IOS 36. Look at it this way: if your Wii is functioning as you expect it or intended, don't fix what's not broken. If you're having issues, follow our guide (linked in llaffer's sig).

    wait wait wait, no... I want to understand this fully. If I install any of the offline wad packages below + a dios mios wad in MMM fresh of letterbombing; is that all I would "need" to play GC/Wii games off of HDD, aside from the Loader obviously (and priiloader ect). Because I am trying to put together a little Tutorial. I need a straight answer?

    I don't need to use IOS236 installer or any other wads including hermes? And if nothing else is needed, tell me about what the "extra things" do please. Extra things being: hermes or IOS's/cIOS's that you would typically get in a hack pack. Straight answers.

    Some games that use USB peripherals or do something else unusual will require the use of the hermes cIOS's, which is why we include them in our ModPack.
