    would this be possible??
    its basically an emulation of your wii using your nand and it loads up on ur pc so basically you can check on things before you actually go and install it on your wii
    so say you wanted to update from 3.2 to 4.2 or whatever and you got the update but ur too scared to use it incase ur wii bricks (same for any other app) well use it on this nand emulation on ur pc to see if it works and what happens before you go and try it on your wii
    its something that would stop alot of peopls wiis bricking
    would this be atall poss/plausable??

    i wouldnt have the 1st clue about how to make this programme but im sure thers some guys in the industry who could

    It's called SNEEK. SNEEK loads the NAND off your SD card instead of your Wii until you reboot without the SNEEK'ed SD card inserted

    i think ur idea is a little redundant with SNEEK... people can launch sneek, then update their emulated nand on their sd card (via the wii) without affecting their actual wii's nand

    only difference is that you're talking about making changes using a computer... well, then u can update the emulated nand on your sd card on the PC using showmiiwads/showmiinand... then launch that emulated nand using sneek... if everything works properly, the user can then decide whether he wants to install the files to real nand (note that some apps dont yet work perfectly via sneek, so if u can't get an app working properly via sneek doesn't mean it wont work via real nand)

    edit: tattar beat me to it...

    I'd go with SNEEK for testing things. The only other option I can think of is using the Wiivnc to connect to your pc and then test things in dolphin BUT dolphin is not a wii so that idea is a bit mong though.
