    Hi,

    ive installed some wad files, including WadManager to install and uninstall the wads.
    is it possible to copy the WadManager from my Wii back to the SD card, delete the WadManager with WadManager and copy the WadManagar back to my Wii when i need this channel? this way i can use the shopchannel etc. without having wad tickets on my wii.

    I don't see why not.

    Personally, I just run it from the homebrew channel.

    but, if this is possible. you can install (for example) the WadManager without using the twlight hack!
    you only need a saved channel file from the sd card

    Oh, I misunderstood your question.

    You need the ticket...

    I'm not too stressed about the big N about it.... but do have concerns about dodgy wads banner bricking... which can really screw you in 3.3.

    If you install a wad with a bad banner, your wii menu will not start.

    If you are on 3.2, you can make an auto-booting (trucha signed) wad manager disc, and use that to remove the bad wad.

    On 3.3, you can make an auto-booting copy of zelda (not trucha signed) but you need to have the twilight hack savegame already on your wii... or you're screwed.

    I've seen your question answered elsewhere... I can't remember the exact explanation, but I'm pretty sure they decided it wouldn't work. I'm not crazy enough to try it.

    The thing is - if you are worried about your wads being traced - the safest option is to use wad manager to clean it... Using other methods gives you no control over tickets.

    You still need a mod chip to launch any burned disc.

    I wouldn't recommend downgrading - Just launch stuff from the homebrew channel rather than using wads.

    even when i only install scene wads? (mostly VC games) you still recommend the homebrew channel? what's the differents between the homebrew channel and the WadManager (besides loading special non-wad software)

    Because you can use a lot of homebrew with homebrew channel and you use blocks only for HBC. It's much easier and safer to use etc etc
