SD vs hard drive for homebrew application
I have successfully installed everything and got the Wii working like I wanted. There is one thing that bugs me. I'm not sure if using a combination of SD for Homebrew applications and the external hard drive for games is better than having everything in the external hard drive. Is there any advantage or disadvantage between the two methods? I would think that with loading homebrew from SD would minimize the use of the hard drive to only for playing games, etc. This would help to extend the hard drive life. On the other hand, having everything in the hard drive would possibly mean that everything can be accessed faster. I'm a noob on this, so sorry if my assuming is wrong. Thanks for the guide.

Well I can't actually tell you if running everything from HDD is harder on the drive or not....but it works for me without issues. I don't run everything from USB though....just apps that I use often. I actually have my loader on the SD card because it boots faster for me. Also depends on the speed of your USB vs SD....all of them are different. So just play around with it and use whatever suits you.

Hi all, I already have all my apps and USB loader installed to the SD card, but now i have my external hard drive i want to run everything straight from it.
If i just copy all the apps files/folders straight to the HDD will the loader and apps still work? and will i need to change the configuration of cfg usb loader to save my covers to the hard drive cos at the moment in global options 2 the paths lead to sd:/usb-loader should i change it to usb:/usb-loader.

Hi, i have a question, i've read, in the FAQ section, that the iso should be under 4 Gb, but, what can i do if i want the Brawl in .iso format? because, there are many thing that you can change in the iso, (textures, music, stages, etc) most of them can be putted in the SD and can be reemplaced by ocarina method, but some others things, like the videos, effect sounds, and voices, only can be reemplaced on the iso, and is diggustion to convert the iso to WBFS every time, there is any form to put an iso over 4Gb?
Also, thanks for the awesome guide

Are you speaking of this guide or the softmod any wii guide? This guide can't be followed until you finish the softmod guide.
