Can you use sneek and uneek together to switch NANDs?

    I have a good working uneek+DI configuration with my NAND stored on USB.
    I use the installed Channel to boot directly into this NAND if required.

    I have the need to store another NAND on SD. This NAND will primarily be used for emuNAND feature in loader (GX), so I don't normally need to boot into it directly - however I would like to be able to do this occasionally.

    I setup sneek on the SD card and have some success booting into it (though postloader can't seem to find any devices, see here).

    If I am booted up to my USB-based NAND it seems I can't choose to switch to my SD based one.

    Is if there is a way I can boot directly into the SD NAND as well?
    Is there another channel I could install that would only boot/recognize the SD NAND, while still also keeping the USB one?

    I believe you mean the overlay menu accessed with the "1" button? This has an option to select another NAND, but it doesn't appear to list the ones from the SD card.

    I'm having some issues with my sneek NAND freezing when I try to bring up the overlay (don't know if it is meant to work in sneek at all?), so I don't know about toggling within sneek.

    AFAIK I am using neek2o because I built it with ModMii, but honestly I can't find alot of information as to how to tell the difference (seems like no one is *not* using neek2o these days)...

    My end goal is not necessarily to toggle from within one instance of neek - but if necessary to launch them separately (preferably from system menu or HBC).

    I'm fairly sure there are multiple menus, one of them is the overlay menu with a list of games by pressing 1 but there's another options menu that comes from pressing either 2 or plus or minus if memory serves correctly. You may be able to toggle nands there.

    It is all considered the overlay menu. You press "1" to bring up the channel menu, then you press "2" to open the configuration menu.
    From within that menu you can use + or 1 to move pages within the configuration menu.

    As I've mentioned I am able to switch nands in this fashion on my sneek installation - as long as those nands are all in the usb1:/nands folder.
    It doesn't provide any of the SD nands as a choice.

    At first glance that looked really promising - but it appears that all those are are variations on the channel forwarder.
    Just like the main neek2o forwarder - the *same* channel can load *either* uneek or sneek - but not both.
    Meaning you must manually configure the path for the channel to launch either/or, but it cannot dynamically switch between them.

    The more I'm looking the more I'm thinking it *shouldn't* be possible to switch between them dynamically since uneek is coded to look on usb and sneek on SD. However, I'm still hopeful I might find perhaps an old forwarder that *only* looks on SD that I can have alongside the newer one that looks to USB first.
