Yesterday, I completed my the softmod from 4.2 and used USB Loader GX to transfer all of my games (all originals) to the external HDD. I can now play all of my games from the external drive.
My questions are:
what exactly is Neogamma for? Is it strictly for playing burned wii discs? I added it as a channel on the main Wii Menu, but now I think I want to remove it and only run it from Homebrew if I ever need it (for protection reasons, see later concern), how do I do this?
This is mainly used to run from disk but can run from any device. It also seems to work well when other loaders can't so it is a good option to have if you need it.
The instructions said this was optional and somewhat risky, so I didnt install it, but I believe I need to install this to shut off Wii update notifications? Is this correct?
After following the messie's instructions in "Full hacking guide for 4.2 system menus!!!!", every time I launch HBC, it wants to update me from 1.0.5 to 1.0.6, should I do this?
CUSTOMIZE / PROTECT Wii Menu
The main reason I wanted to run everything from the external hard drive is because I have a 3 yr. old that loves to scratch, break, and lose discs. So now with everything on the hard drive, I at least have a backup copy and he doesnt have to mess with the discs anymore. I was hoping he wouldnt figure out how to load and play games from USB Loader GX, but he saw me do it one time and figured it out. I tried moving the USB Loader to the far right on the Wii Menu by dragging it and that didnt help, he knows where it is now. Is there any solution to not allowing access to certain Wii menu items? Can I hide them better or password protect them maybe? I am afraid he will get into Homebrew Channel, Neogamma, or USB Loader and totally mess things up.
As far as homebrew items, remove the sd card and nothing will be there for him to activate.
Thanks in advance for any help
You may just want to dissconnect the hard drive when not in use and present to see what is going on.
