    No,there is a channel maker that makes channels that boot a game off a HDD,ima looking for something simmilair,but instead of booting a game off HDD,it does load form the SD card

    Ohh I see what you want, but I believe that you need to change the source of the latest 1.5 and make it autoboot, just like it is done with the 1.1 source to boot directly the game inside the HDD, probably the best option would be to ask help to oggzee, or ask him straight to make an autoboot .dol, cause it is not just about the channel, the .dol has to call the game inside the SD too...!!

    If you can pack and unpack wads, I can use that tool to create a dol for you. Then you can manually change the Game ID to the game you want to boot and pack it with the opening.bnr.

    yeah but he still needs to change the .dol to be able to boot the game from the SD instead of the HDD

    If I create a wad from the tool to set boot from SD and unpack the wad to get the dol, it would be unnecessarily to set anything more.

    No. There is no dol that autoboots from SD by default. However, by using Loadstructor, you can create a wad which can load game from SD. So, you can unpack that wad to get a dol which can autoboot from SD.

    You could always just use a USB SD reader... I use this too. I put it in the back of my Wii with an SDHC card in it and it works great.
