    Ok, I am wanting a Homebrew Channel, and the only way i can do it is Smash Stack. However, i don't want to lose my save data, but i cannot copy the Save Data onto a SD Card. Help Please?

    Smash Stack doesn't affect your save data.

    well, i believe the stages that u need to delete prior to using smash stack are saved in the save data, but u can just back those up to an sd card before deleting them.

    "Save data" in the traditional sense is not affected, as tueidj has already pointed out

    1. Go to the stage builder, move any existing custom stages on Brawl to your SD card, and exit the stage builder. Smash Stack will not work if the console has any custom stages on it, even the three samples that come with a new file or the stages from the Smash Service. You will need to wait at least 24 hours for the stage from the Smash Service to be automatically deleted before trying to run this exploit. DO NOT go on Wi-Fi once the Smash Service stage is deleted.
    2. Connect the SD card to your computer and rename the "private" folder to "privateold" in the root of the SD card.
    3. Copy the "private" folder from the Smash Stack download to the root of the SD card.
    4. Grab a *.elf file (HackMii Installer works) and put that in the root of the SD card.
    5. Insert the SD card into the Wii.
    6. Go back to the stage builder and the .elf file will load.

    It's that easy? Will the HBC stay on the Wii without probs? All you need is Smash Stack and ure done and you can download Homebrew? I know you need additonal files for cheats and etc.

    Re-read what I already posted:

DO NOT go on Wi-Fi once the Smash Service stage is deleted.

    If this is complicated stuff, then you probably should not be attempting to mod your Wii. Have a grown up with a little bit of technical knowledge read through all the instructions and install things for you.

    Edit again: I did a quick google search using the title of this thread, and surprise surprise, the first result was this: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/w.../data.jsp#SDwii

    Its about as retard-friendly as it gets.

    Being able cheating in videogames isn't exactly something to brag about, and isn't exactly something you should excitedly tell others.
    Just saying.
