    ..Take your SD card out? Otherwise, there's no way.

    It auto-loads the USB if the SD card has no applications in its apps folder. Otherwise, SD card trumps USB.

    Hypothetically could someone make a forwarder to the HBC where it automatically presses the "one" button?

    I only keep a handful of apps on my USB, and I use forwarders for all of those... if you have enough channels to use USB exclusively for apps, I would just remove the apps folder from your SD card.

    My wii hasn't had an sd card inserted for months. You don't really need them now.

    I'd say you could make a channel fairly easily that renames the "apps" folder on the SD card to something else, then loads HBC, thus loading with HBC pointed to USB. But then you'd need another channel for renaming the SD card "apps" folder back to "apps" and then loading HBC if you want to be able to load stuff from SD card too.

    If you really need both USB and SD, you'd need both these channels and the original HBC. Unless an app can continue to execute code after a channel is launched, but I'm pretty sure it can't. (If it could, you could make the USB forwarder rename the SD "apps" folder back after loading HBC, but I'm pretty sure that is impossible).

    I'm pretty sure it would be impossible, not because of IOS reloads, but because only one piece of PPC code can run at a time, meaning if you run one app, then run another, the first is completely removed, so cannot "press" a button.

    That's because SNEEK doesn't run on the PPC.

    SNEEK can send button pushes...?

    EDIT: And yeah, like above said, SNEEK is mainly ARM stuff
