    how did they manage to put a such "GUI" in NGC mode? are they using à old unpatched gamecube exploit?
    or am I missing something?

    Same thought. It's a nice idea, but way to messy to use.

    some people just want something that works out of the box..the average user doesn't want to go through all the reading/patching to get a softmod to work. plus there is always the risk of bricking the unit completely.

    - Which isn't there if you have to open your console [​IMG]. Seriously...HardModding and installing a cIOS are equal in the case of rendering your console unusable. I would even say opening the Wii is more dangerous, if you damage something on the board, your Wii is gone. Installing a cIOS can't do any harm, since the Wii don't depends on IOS249. In the worst case, you have a corrupted IOS, but because this IOS never get's used, it won't do any harm.*
    - Reading how to install this and opening your Wii is in my opinion more complicated than installing a cIOS and running a Loader...
    - Also, this should be in this section, I guess.
    - And I still have the Opinion that Softmodding is the best way if you want to load games from USB. The community is always stronger and faster than a ModChip-Team (see NSMB Wii).

    This all may sound a bit harsch, I just tried to clarify some things, and shared my opinions. In the end, everyone has to decide for themself what he wants, and Sundriver has it pros (likely to survive Update, integrated HD, etc..). I wish good luck to the Sundriver-Team [​IMG].

    *This is all theoretical, don't quote me on this.

    would think this will cause over heating and faster gpu/cpu failure cause of heat issues

    I am not saying softmodding sucks....I am just saying the average user would find it more difficult...I dont see how plugging in 2 cables can damage the Wii..If you softmod and update you risk bricking the Wii.

    "Installing a cIOS can't do any harm, since the Wii don't depends on IOS249. In the worst case, you have a corrupted IOS, but because this IOS never get's used, it doesn't bother you."

    Try explaining that to someone who knows nothing about modding and just wants to play backups. We get calls about several bricked Wiis on a weekly basis. Some are damaged to a point that the nand needs to be flashed.

    You can use any size hdd you want. You can visit their website www.d2sun.com. Find a distributor in your area. It also comes with adapter if you want to use 3.5" SATA drive but it would have to be outside of the Wii

    I think it's like usb loaders it depends on the drives controller being compatible cause i've one external box that accepts any hard drive I can throw at it from 4.3Gb to 500Gb hard drives all different makes and iterfaces sata, ide and laptop

    They have SUN-HD which will be coming out sometime in January. This will retain the DVD drive like the WODE

    maybe good for those who have defective drives or with newer drives that don't want to do homebrew.

    and might be good since it's not using homebrew to play backups

    i very interested on the method it loads the game..
