    Hi,

    I've hacked my Wii about a year ago and have been getting more and more conformable in messing around with it. I want to get SNEEK on my Wii and having read several tutorials, I have some rather basic questions that I can't seem to be able to get the answers to.

    1
    This is pathetically basic, but no tutorial lays out the basic terminology. What are the differences between SNEEK, SNEEK+DI, UNEEK, and UNEEK+DI. Do they refer to four different programs or are they four methods I need to use to get NAND emulation to work. If I want to emulate from my USB, do I need to use only some of them?

    2
    The tutorial about putting games onto the emulated NAND is pretty straight forward. However, as you are not using cIOS or backup loaders, how do you load the game?

    3
    My current games are all on my FAT32 hard drive in a WBFS folder. Can I leave it there while I also put my SNEEK files and folders on the hard drive. Basically, does the hard drive need to be squeaky clean for SNEEK to work?

    4
    If I dump my current NAND (which has Homebrew installed), will homebrew under the emulated NAND (on SNEEK) run properly?


    Thanks for the help and for not flaming the ignorant.

    sd-nand/es emulation kit = SNEEK
    usb-nand/es emulation kit = UNEEK

    SNEEK/SNEEK+DI run from SD (ie SD-NAND), where di has extra features, not quite sure, but its superior.
    UNKEEK/UNKEEK+DI same as before but nand from USB

    2
    i remember DI has its own menu you can load from, and with regular sneek, um, ill get back to you

    3
    you need to convert the iso/wbfs image to a barebones sneek content folder. (i use WiiJManager_0.8)

    xtra
    some people can get it working straight away, others (myself included) have to figure out small things that are wrong with thier particular setup.

    1. SNEEK: NAND on SD, games play from the real DVD drive[need Dark/CIOScorp or a patched di.bin to run burnt games, still does not enable burnt disks for D3-2 drives]
    1a. SNEEK + DI: NAND on SD, games on USB drive, extracted with DiskEx[can't use normal ISOs/wbfs files]
    1b. UNEEK: NAND on USB, see SNEEK(1) for games
    1c. UNEEK + DI: NAND on USB, see SNEEK + DI(1a) for games

    2. You run them from the Disk channel[or modified usb loader if you use puneek, which is a different topic altogether]of the emulated NAND. All your saves, Miis, etc. are saved on this emulated NAND.

    3. Yes, you can leave your current game ISOs/WBFS files on the drive, and no it doesn't have to be squeaky clean. Just note that you have to use SNEEK's special format[raw decrypted files, no ISOs/WBFS files] to play games on the DI module.

    Other than that, reading this should answer all other questions and then some.
