I think I understand the general concept of performing a Wii softmod:
Add executables and files to a SD Flash card to enable homebrew apps (HBC, mplayer, whatever...), play backed up games etc, via modification of Wii system files.
But is it possible, to have 2 SD cards to use (soft-modded/native)?
You know, one card SD setup as native/unmodded one, to say keep your children from accessing homebrew and your favorite menu setups. And the other- your actual soft-modded SD flash for your homebrew?
I guess, in other words, are SD cards hot-swappable? So can I choose when I want to run a soft-mod on my Wii via the flash memory.
When I purchased my Wii in Feb 09 (LU63...), I thought the SD cards went in the actual controllers. So, I bought two 2GB flash cards. I have my one 2GB in the Wii with all my saves, etc... I have the other just sitting in my desk, just waiting to be used as a soft-mod for the Wii.
Any ideas? Thanks!
Homebrew Channel loads the SD card as required each time you run it. You could use 99 SD cards each with a different range of applications if you wished. The only thing that won't work out well is forwarder channels.
Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
I just wanted to make sure. I have a 4 yr old son, and one of the stipulations when I bought the Wii was that I could not mod it like I did my old XBox. My wife found operating that- confusing. So, if I do mod it, I need to act like a regular Wii, when in use with the unmodded SD card.
But I really like the idea of the Homebrew Channel, DVDX, Mplayer etc...
