    So my current situation is:

    3.4E Wii w/ cIOScorp 3.2 installed. Runs backups but does NOT run other region games.
    Owner of this Wii doesn't have a Wi-Fi connection so some installers don't work.
    He also doesn't have an SD card that can stay in the wii.
    He is also a KID, so he can't mess with pre-boot menus and loaders.

    So what I need is something I can install with files on my SD card only, that will stay in the Wii and that will not require a change in the way it currently works that will simply bust the region locks (in both Wii and GC though). It can't require a permanent SD card...
    I'm sorry but I'm kinda desperate because I need this ready by tomorrow and the resources are scarce.

    Install pre-loader, activate region free hack and set it to boot directly in to the menu. That way he won't see it. Problem solved [​IMG]

    thought about it. it's on 3.4 with no wifi so that it can go 4.0 so unless you can create a hacks.ini for 3.4 it's a bit hard.

    First one is simple: get a wad of GeckoOs and install it with the wad manager
    be sure its an autoboot version so it doesn't go to the menu
    Not really sure about the second, but you can try [​IMG]

    Mmm I'm sure u can google and find a channel. I use a forwader so that won't help u. I'm pretty sure it works with gc. Btw there is way to upgrade ur wii to 4.1 with wads offline so u can use preloader. It's in the ultimate 4.0 guide thread first page
    try this thread may help http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=171...p;#entry2166518
