    is it ok to use micro sd card and use adaptor that came with it?

    after i install the homebrew channel can i use a sd card that is bigger than 4 gb and is sdhc?

    question regarding the structure of the file in the sd card
    in the instruction it says to put xyzzy in sd root/apps but when i check the ascii drawing its inside the d2x-cios-installer mod v2.2 folder also alot of files seems out of place. which ones should i follow?

    do i need a wii remote to enter the vwii?

    1. micro sd is fine.
    2. Yes you can use a larger sd card.
    3. I can't figure out what you mean by your 3rd question, please rephrase.
    4. Yes you will need a wii remote.

    for the item 3 im using this guide https://gbatemp.net/threads/full-vwii-softmod.339899/
    scroll down to the ascii drawing of a file structure as you can see the xyzzy is inside "d2x-cios-installer mod v2.2" but the instruction is to put it in SD Card apps (quoted from the guide "xyzzy; download and copy \xyzzy folder inside SD\apps\; this homebrew will save your vWii keys")

    That path tree does seem a little weird, indeed. Anyway, personnally, I would put xyzzy in the apps folder. That way, you can easily launch it from the Homebrew channel. Don't pay too much attention to the path tree. It would do no harm to follow it, but then you wouldn't see your apps in the HB channel.

    Yes, the tree isn't correct, it got me confused when i did it, but the description is correct.
    \DmpMiNND, \HBC, \USBLoader, \xyzzy are located in /apps/ folder.
