    Question some questions about thread titles

    i installed the wii homebrew channel via letterbomb,

    i read something about saving some data incase i had problems? what is this and can i still do it?

    also how do i get my video games on to sd cards, whats the process on this

    i have to use sd cards as i have a bunch from cameras, and no external hard drive
    i have three games i want to play off my cards

    what programs do i use to rip them, and how do i get them on cards properly?

    If all you did was install HBC, then you're not fully modded yet.

    Check out the Softmod Any Wii guide (link in my signature) and follow it completely. It will include collecting a backup of the system's NAND memory as you mentioned.

    SD cards may not be the best way to go due to the read speed compared to USB, but the loaders may be configured to read from SD. I've never tried it. But if you go through the entire guide I mentioned, it ends with giving you an app pack to start things off with which will include three USB Loaders. Each loader has the capability to rip game disks and store the data on USB for non-disk playing in the future. You'll have to check the settings for each loader to see if it can be saved to SD, but as I said, USB is preferred over SD due to the read-write speed difference.

    thanks for the links,

    i just finished installing the wads, and new channels appeared on my wii mwnu screen, but dont work

    i assume after i instal priloader , then do chapter 3 , they will then work?

    oh ya , also, do i need to keep anything on the memory card after this is done? like bootmi?

    The channels are just forwarders for the apps on the SD card (which you'd get in chapter 3), though I don't use forwarders myself. I find they are more hassle than they are worth.

    You'll want to back up bootmii, NAND backup, and encryption keys somewhere safe, but after you are done modding, you can reformat the card again and install whatever apps you want on it (using chapter 3 as a start if you don't know what else to start with).

    1. We good-naturedly asked you to observe the site rules (yes, one image to draw attention and the other offered tongue-in-cheek). This is a method to advise our members to make sure they're familiar with the rules they agreed to abide by when signing up and posting.

    2. The disrespectful tone and dislike for this site ("forum layout") will not serve you well; there are alternatives, feel free to explore them. Thread is closed.
