I asked this a while back but I'm kinda hoping people are now more willing to try for me / have checked this . I was wondering wether running homebrew is possible without a drive installed. Naturally the drive is needed for the twilight hack and etc., but after that can one start and run for example the homebrew channel without problems without a drive? An official channel dies shortly after you start it when a drive is absent in the Wii, hence the question. Cheers to anyone who knows . Seeing as I have a fully working Wii here that only misses the drive it would be great if I could set it up to for example run linux and be my WOL-box.
