Thread: CFG USB saving pics to disc?

  1. #1

    CFG USB saving pics to USB?

    Hey guys, I modded my cousin's Wii using Maui's guide (not installing BootMii, my cousin is 5 so it would add extra confusion.) So now I need CFG to have pictures, so she can easily pick between games. However the HDD has the "forwarder". The pictures save on the SD, so in order to get pictures I have to have the SD in. Well I think Hombrew Channel mistakes the SD for having the actual boot.dol, when in reality it's the HDD. So the solution I want is to get the game covers to save on the HDD.

    (This looks very confusing, if you need more clarity let me know)

    (When I put the CFG USB on the SD it works, however I need that SD for my Wii)

    cfg will save to the usb, just take out the card and get the covers via wi-fi. If that doesnt do it, look here for all of your cfg instructions.

    What you mean about bootmi? You need to install is and back up your nand....I am pretty sure it is listed as NOT OPTIONAL.

    Oh, well I didn't want to install it as my cousin is 5 and she has a brother who is 3 and the Wii process is already complicated. Didn't want to add something to make it even more complicated considering they don't have a GC controller to easily navigate through the menu.

    The "power/reset/eject" buttons act as the controls.. you dont NEED a game cube controller
    [SPOILER= Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here]Shift_Lock On Forum Issues - Vol. 1

    Disclaimer:
    First I would like to state that this is one persons point of view. It does not reflect this site (wiihacks.com) or any other staff/mod/or admin here. It is solely mine. Now even though a few may have similar points of view this should be taken as one person’s opinion. Also. This DOES NOT reflect all users and noobs here.. Just a select few personality types that pop in time to time. Let’s get started!

    [SPOILER="Outlook On Forum Rules "]Now I realize many of you did not even read the rules and just agreed to them.. Kind of like signing a legal contract without reading the clause that states you just sold your life away… It happens... When it does, YOU are still responsible and held liable for your actions. No matter how much you think its BS... It’s still on you. I for one am among those who did just that when I signed up here... (Shame on me I know) I to did not read them immediately (however I did speed through it to get a general idea)... I was quickly referred to them a few times do to not being thorough enough with “speed reading”...

    [SPOILER="Why we have rules on this site"]The rules here at wiihacks are here for a few key reasons. I’m only going to hit a few.

    Conduct - We know it’s the net, and there are a lot of internet gangsters/bully’s/and plain jack ass’s... We don’t like that here. The ways users conduct themselves reflect the site... We want user to enjoy coming here but respect in general is needed. Flaming and such results in infractions/bans so don’t do it.

    Piracy – This is a big one here, and no one seems to understand... First of all IT IS AGAINST THE RULES OF THE SITE! Which every last one of you members had to agree to follow prior to being a member here. Copyright laws vary from place to place so they are different for others. But we have to follow our copy rights here to protect our site. We DO NOT support piracy and will not assist in it. We don’t want to lose our wonderful site that you as a user come to, to find help. Big brother (the government) and big “N” (Nintendo) may be watching along with a vast amount of other private sectors looking to stop the pirating of copy righted material. Shutting down sites that support it are somewhere at the top of the list to reduce this.

    Personally, I don’t care what you do... I don’t care what your online habits are or how much porn/software/media you download every day. It’s your computer and your life. YOU are responsible for anything that may occur from that. Users who lack a way with words to express themselves in what they are trying to do may get wrongly accused of being a pirate and these things occur: warnings/infractions/bans/threads closed/YouTube videos of dancing pirates/ and many many possible pictures pointing you out.

    We as staff here are obligated to abide by and enforce forum rules. Whether we believe their valid or not. They are in place to protect the site and members of our community. I won’t allow a poor decision result in losing this site.

    Cheating – Play Fair... I support it... Nothing I hate more than losing to a cheater... If I lose I want it to be because the other person was actually better. Cheating takes the fun out of the game... Why make it easier? Do you suck that bad at it? Don’t like the challenge? GET A DIFFERENT GAME! We don’t support cheats here. Users will not be given help on how to become invincible or walk through walls... you want god mode? Unlimited ammo? Go Google it somewhere else. Don’t ask about it here.[/SPOILER]

    There are a lot of users/members that say “this is wiihacks wtf?” or "that’s the point in hacking a Wii”... No it is not….. We assist users in backing up their legally purchased games so they don’t get ruined in the future (we know how kids are)... Before backups I had bought 3 Mario karts! Ridiculous… Anyways, it also allows us to fully enjoy the console and the convenience that some mods add to the system. We make it custom and set it up the way we like it. Kind of like your pc. A lot of users buy the Wii just so they can do that! I will ban anyone who tries to argue that point... Dont be ignorant... [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “So you Think You’re a Hacker”]Warning: Spoiler below is a rant. [SPOILER= "Shift_Lock's Rant about the tough guys"]Really guy? We are “Modder’s” at best... most users aren’t even that. A hacker would shut down this site with a single code line… Not sit here claiming he’s one arguing about rules and why he needed help... I’m not saying we don’t have members that are real “hackers” but face it... You aren’t one of them... Coders and developers are fantastic people that make all this possible. And some of those guys truly are considered hackers at some level. Now, could they hack the pentagon? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows... lol

    The point of this is for those of you that come on here thinkin you’re hot [nice word]... If you were a hacker you wouldn’t need our help and wouldn’t need to hide behind a proxy or redirect to post your nonsense… Get over yourself and just follow our guides. If you can’t “hack” a Wii, what can you do? Can you hit the logout button? Try It! How about facing your fail and going back to the guides to read some more… Leave the “hacking” to the REAL hackers out there. /end rant[/SPOILER][/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “Need Help?”] That’s why you’re here right? To get help Modding your Wii. Some users can just navigate the site and never need to post a thing because they can search, read and are on some level tech savvy. Other users need assistance. That’s why we are here... To support and assist those who need the help to mod or to help find solutions to their problems. We like to help… but... We don’t always like to spoon feed arrogant people who demand help or can’t use the search function... If our search is too hard to use there is Google, and if you can’t use Google then you SHOULD NOT mod your Wii...

    We see the same issues every day, same posts, same questions, same answers…. SEARCH FIRST!!! Read a little… Geez people! Too lazy to search for a solution, but can type a wall of text that takes 15 mins to read? C’mon man… step up your game... My spoon hand is getting tired, gonna have to just start [nice word] slapping people with it…

    Don’t be lazy... Help us, help you... If you’re really stuck then we take no issue helping as long as it’s within the lines of the rules... The “grey” area is kind of tough... The staff is here on OUR own time and do not get ANYTHING for being here helping you... We are not paid and don’t see any part of the donations... The donations go strictly to site development. Can you fathom how much it costs to run a site of this level and host the files that we do? Everything costs money... Just not the staff here so remember that the next time you are impatient or lazy... We aren’t getting paid... We are helping because we want to... So keep your cool and dont lose your head... Don’t give us reasons to NOT help you. If you do, well... Then we won’t...[/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= "Mutli Threads, Double Posts and bumping"]Ok.. So It might not bother you but it bugs the crap outta me! It clutters the forum and makes you come off as impatient and ungrateful.

    Mutli threads - Do you really need more then one?? Mods and staff see EVERY POST MADE! You only need one thread for your issue.. Dont create more then that..

    Double posts - You have an "EDIT" button... it will be right under your post to the right.. it will say "EDIT".. say it with me now.. "Eh-d-it" ...... Use IT!!!

    Bumping - If no one has got to you yet there IS a slim chance it was missed.. probably not.. As we answer what we know. so if we dont know, We will leave it for someone else or atleast contact another Staff member for assistance. So WAIT and be PATIENT!You can bumpAFTER 24hrs! and that it!!! I will infract/ban/scold/kick your dog/delete any users who abuse this after warnings....[/SPOILER]
    More to come (without a doubt) so stay tuned for the next edition! Peace I’m out![/SPOILER]

    I don't think you understand what bootmii is for or how it is used. For your mod you should look at is as insurance. You may never need it, but sure will be glad if you do. Once it is installed you can pretty much forget about it unless something goes wrong with your wii, then bootmii may ave you from having an expensive paperweight. There is no reason for the little ones to ever see it or even have to worry about it. Bootmii and prriloader are the 2 things that ANY moded wii needs to have installed. Both can run in the background and hopefully never need to be used. By the time you realize that you need either of them it is usually too late. You make your own choice on that, but consider yourself warned.

    As far as the covers go, I hope the info I gave you has helped.

    It has but I know bootmii is brick protection, however doesn't it give you that screen when you boot up, it would just make the whole process if playing a game more complicated. I have priiloader though.

    Wait would installing bootmii as boot2 on an SD, making a nand backup, and not putting the SD in the wii. Would I still be able to fix my wii later if I brick.

    yes! You can even leave it on the card and just rename the folder so it does not start up all the time.

    Would Installing Bootmii as Boot2 on a 4.3 wii, and naming the folder Rochelle's Wii. Then installing it on mine (used to have it but it started as a black screen) and naming it Austin's Wii. Then lets say I one of our Wii's Brick. If Rochelle's bricked I rename Rochelle's Wii to the Bootmii default folder name and it's saved, given that I made a backup. And If mine broke, the same thing except renaming the Austin's wii folder.

    And could you install it on a HDD?

    The Nand.bin and keys.bin are unique to each wii. You can store them wherever you would like to, just keep them straight as to which is which. You only need one copy of the bootmii folder, it will run on any wii. I am pretty sure bootmii only works from the sd card, and it is very particular about the type of card as well.
