    Or, you would do this method..

    Copy the channel to the SD Card, then delete the channel off the system menu via data management (Why not WAD Manager? Because, by data management, tickets will remain, so you can copy them back). Anytime you want to play them, kindly copy them back again.

    Fortunately, a patch in the future by Nintendo should be fixing this issue, allowing us to run it from the SD card.

    Would that ever happen? That would increase hacks and whatnot and stuff like that. Although ... there are already hacks for it.

    I am quite sure that Nintendo will find a way to block hackers... for about five minutes.
