    I want to run Gecko OS to get ToS2 workings, but I dont have a SD card. Am I screwed? Is there any other methods getting gecko OS to work?

    It is x-mas and all stores are closed.

    You want to run Gecko OS without an SD Card?

    screwed isn't the correct terminology.

    just put that hand in your pocket and pull out that cash and buy an sd card!

    if you can afford a wii - you can afford an sd card

    Yea, I was waiting for him to say yes and spam "YOUR SCREWED !!!!!!ONEONEONE" [​IMG] (That's to SectorX btw)

    You're screwed. If you can't wait a few days, then buy the SD Card on Amazon.

    It's possible to use Gecko OS without an SD card.
    You can use a Gecko OS channel.
    However ...... to be able to install that .wad file ... you're going to need a SD card.
    Or ......... I believe Wad manager installs wad files from a USB stick aswell.
    You'd still need a SD card to use Wad manager though.

    use wiiload to send the gecko os dol-file to homebrew channel, or try to install the channel with wadmanager if you have an usb-stick.
