    I've been thinking, since I don't want to update to 4.0, and I want to stay on 3.2, maybe somebody could develop a homebrew app to load VC/WiiWare games from the SD Card? Is that possible?

    It wouldn't be easy.

    Nintendo still hasn't been able to load them from the SD card.

    Maybe I'm not getting the real meaning of that, but I swear I'm able to load Pokémon Puzzle League from my SD card... [​IMG]

    Nintendo's works by temporally copying the SD data to NAND. Essentially installing a WAD and then deleting it when needed.

    Ufff we would need to reverse engeneering the entire SysMenu 4.0 (W/E version it is) and then take just the part that loads games from the SD card, then create a tool that converts .wad files into the format the Wii handles, and that........I think it wont be any easy task to do..!!

    WiiGator's cboot2 apparently allows one to run a cIOS without actually installing it. Perhaps this can one day be expanded to run wads?

    there is not such app, the app has been requested thousands of times, and it never got even started, when 4.0 came out, everybody stoped asking for it, and they just updated to 4.0, just as flys follow the light, or bees the honey..!! [​IMG]

    There really is no reason at this point NOT to install 4.0. It is the standard and will probably continue to be unless nintendo makes a really huge change for 5.0

    Really..?? [​IMG] I thought that it was only installed by:

    1.People who need the SD loading thingy
    2.People who like to be as up-to-date as possible and/or don't know about Wii homebrew
    3.People who has a working internet conection on their Wii (otherwise there is no game with the 4.0 update in it)

    I've seen many people that decided to stay on 3.2 for many reason, I do it because it is fun to try to get the best of the newer updates without loosing functionability on the apps I want and/or use..!! [​IMG]
