    Thumbs up WBFS Partition Creator

    This was not created by me,

    === Usage ===
    Before using wbfs tool, you must initialize the drive. Preferably pre-format your USB drive to FAT32.

    'X' in the following examples represents your drive letter, for example, G.

    *init the partition:
    wbfs_win.exe X init

    *estimate the size of the iso on the USB drive
    wbfs_win.exe X estimate <your_wiidisc.iso>

    *add an iso to your partition
    wbfs_win.exe X add <your_wiidisc.iso>

    *list the wiidisc that are on the wbfs, you will get the DISCID, game name, number of wide sectors used, and number of GB used.
    wbfs_win.exe X list

    *count the number of wide sectors / GB available on your partition
    wbfs_win.exe X info

    *build Homebrew Channel directories for all the games in your partition
    This will actually make a directory for each game with the DISCID of the game,
    copy the icon.png and boot.dol of the current directory, and make a meta.xml with the name of the game
    wbfs_win.exe X makehbc
    Then copy all the directories in the apps directory of your sdcard.

    *remove a disc from wbfs
    wbfs_win.exe X remove DISCID

    *extract an iso from wbfs
    wbfs_win.exe X extract DISCID

    To use these commands you must open up a command prompt.

    Do this Start > RUN and type in cmd (vista users, use windows key + r)

    Now you will have to goto the folder that contains WBFS do this like so

    cd C:\WBFS

    now run the commands above enjoy

    May be a vista problem plug the HDD into the WII and format it through there.

    THIS PROGRAM NOW HAS A GUI SO IT IS EASIER FOR ALL OF YOU!

    The drive shouldn't matter, some are incompatiable.

    That error is because you do not have the new CIOS with the system menu 4.0 updates,

    http://www.wiihacks.com/news-annouce...der-1-1-a.html - download here

    The CIOS is a .DOL file so you must put it in a folder then int othe apps section of the HDC so SD CARD > APPS > NEW CIOS > CIOS.DOl, if you get me?
