    A friend of mine said that it is possible to softmod the vWii (Smash Stack) with a SDHC, is this true? because I read everywhere that it does not work.

    Also, here in Brazil is VERY hard to find SD cards that are less than 8GB, so, are there any exploits that work with SDHC?

    Search in ALL your old electronics.
    Either you, your family members or friends have an old camera or phone or game system (like a wii or dsi etc) or other piece of electronics sitting in some drawer (that you haven't thought about in years) that will hold a precious sd card you seek ,Good Luck.

    I bought my trancend card 2 gb from eBay for 10$. Buy it from Hong Kong based seller. It's free shipping and no tax.

    You absolutely need a regular SD, but you don't need a very big one, just has to be big enough to hold the initial stuff for whichever game you're using for the exploit. After that runs you can switch to an SDHC. I did mine that way, took a ridiculously small SD out of an old camera, that never would have fit everything, but it was big enough for the Lego Batman save. Then for the rest of the stuff I used my 3DSXL's 4GB SDHC card.

    See, the problem is the exploitable games are all old and only support SD cards. The Wii/vWii itself got patched for SDHC, but the older games didn't.

    Yes he's right. You need to use this sd card only one time. But it's worth it. You can play wii isos, use emulators and nintendont after that. I have only two games for wii u. But now I have dozens of games. Btw I used the star wars game. It's the most cheap one and it's total crap.

    Just a tip, the normal 3ds has a 2gb sd built in ;)

    I'll back up your statement. I have a DSi and DSi XL that neither of them came with an SD card. My 3DS came with 2GB and 3DS XL with a 4GB.

    If only eBay had a reputation feature for sellers so buyers can gauge how reliable the products someone is selling are..

    Oh wait they do..
