    Removing/Hiding channels

    hi all, I am modding wii's for several friends and I am a little worried about what will happen to these when they go home. I want to prevent accidental changes from being made. Is there a way I can lock or remove the home brew channel after I have finished all of the mods?

    Thanks for any help.

    Joe

    There are various things yoiu could do. If you only use USB HDD, set loader as a channel and remove SD card.

    If you use the Sd card, rename SD\apps to SD\appsold.

    Depends how you want to use the Wii.

    I would rather not use an SD card after the install, but will if I have to. My goal is to make the mod as idiot proof as possible. I am using USB Loader GX, what do I use as the drive letter if I want to store all of the pics and settings on the hard drive?

    I just got done with that one soft modding tutorial and was wondering the same thing. It seems that someone could easily go into the homebrew channel and mess things up really badly. I got little cousins that play the wii... =/

    There is no need for an SD card if you install GX as a channel.
    You need a second partition on your HDD to store images.
    Goto GX settings, custom paths change from SD\XXXX to USB\XXXX.

    Remove SD card. Your images will now be displayed from the HDD.

    Things to note,
    The Channel cannot be updated from the update page, a new channel has to be installed.
    One advantage of a forwarder is it can get updates
    Drawback is, it requires an SD card. USB second partition.

    You can put the USB Loader GX .dol in the root,
    In Priiloader set file to USBLoader GX .dol.

    Set file = autoboot

    Set autoboot = file
    return = autoboot

    Wii powers on to GX, prees home on remote in game, returns to GX,
    You have to gp back into Priiloader to get the system menu.
    If you don't want home brew, rename SD\apps to something else.

    You could always drag the homebrew channel icon into the far right home screen menu so it's not visible on the Wii start up screen.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Can I just delete the home brew channel after I have set everything up?
