    Now that my Wii is setup and I have usb loader gx working, what files and directories do I need to leave? I want to clean up my SD card.
    Here is a list of what's on the card if it would help.

    Directories:

    00000001
    apps
    bootmii
    codes
    config
    images
    ios
    nus
    private
    txtcodes
    wad

    Files at root of SD card:

    4.2U_Systemmenu_v481.wad
    boot.elf
    installer.log
    IOS70-64-v6687.wad

    Everything in the root can go.

    All WAD's and the wad directory can go.

    The 00000001 can go.
    private can go


    You need to keep 'apps' for homebrew stuff.
    Keep 'bootmii'

    The rest, I dunno.

    If in doubt, keep it.

    Else, just delete everything but bootmii and apps, and be prepared to reconfigure from scratch USB loader GX =)

    channels like wiiware and virtual consoles on your sd card will be in private, so just for you to know [​IMG]

    00000001 -- extracted menu/IOS info, if everything installed correctly delete it.
    apps -- your homebrew apps go here. open it up and each one has its own folder. keep what you want to use.
    bootmii -- needed for NAND backups and system recovery, but not needed for everday use. backup on PC and remove from card if you want.
    codes -- cheat codes I believe... empty if you haven't loaded any.
    config -- usb loader config files, keep it.
    images -- cover art for your usb games.
    ios -- more extracted IOS stuff, delete
    nus -- not sure, didn't use a NUS downloader myself... whats in it?
    private -- contains wiiware or game saves copied to SD card, as well as bannerbomb. delete the files that came with the bannerbomb pack, leave the rest.
    txtcodes -- more cheat codes
    wad -- wad files, backup to PC and delete from card

    Files at root of SD card: --backup and remove the wads. boot.elf should be the hackmii installer if you haven't loaded anything else there, you can remove that.
    4.2U_Systemmenu_v481.wad
    boot.elf
    installer.log
    IOS70-64-v6687.wad

    also make sure you do a nand backup before removing bootmii from your card if you have not already. that will give you a nand.bin and keys.bin, backup both of those to your PC and remove from card as well.
