    Any ideas how 2 have all game save data save from usb hdd only? (not from wii memory)

    I have just about everything i can think of for my Wii perfectly running off the usb hdd without an sd card. The only thing I still cant figure out (if it can be done) is if I can use the usb hdd to have the wii automatically save/load the game save data from the usb hdd to utilize the block space. I only have about 54 blocks left and there are still several games I and the kids want to play but were running out of room. I thought of a saved game manager on the homebrew browser but according to this, it would just copy over the saves data but you cant run from it. In order to use the game save data you would have to copy it back over. This isnt what i wanted. is there a better app or can you tweek the app to do this? maybe even a ios that does this? I have the priiloader if that helps. Any help would be appreaciated.

    Do you have a lot of wiiware/Vc installed to the system ? If so you can look into triiforce to load all your wiiware/vc games from SD/USB and free up your system for your save data. Thats the only way I know of other then the first method you described.

    yes i would look up triiforce to load the wiiware/vc to save space... i dont believe that you can load save games from a SD/HDD becasue the coding in the wii games look for the saves in the NAND and you would have to change that...

    and i would not worry about it because the saves are only like 1-5 blocks at the most

    Realistic are you using 4.2...if so how'd you get USB loader to launch w/o using an sd card? For some reason mine fails if I don't have the sd card in the slot, I have no idea why! Any clue?

    First off... I cant stand usb loader. I have tried it and it was boring. i use wiiflow and every wii i modded has it too. i have 4.1u with a dual partition hdd (fat32 and wbfs). i recommend this way. regardless if 4.2 or 4.1u than this shouldnt matter for the dual partion hdd for usb loader to run without a sd card. i only used the sd card to do the mods, wads, and apps installs. I have everything i would normally have on the sd card now on the hdd fat32 side. I open homebrew without the sd card and it all shows up from the hdd. i can give more details if you wish.

    have you tried this or had anyone else try it. also, can i just install it without uninstalling any IOS? I just dont wanna install it and have a crash. (i might just backup the NAND first to play it safe).
