    Have you tried using the backup launcher or gamecube backup launcher? (assuming you had cios or mio installed prior to install that is as i'd imagine the installers dont work post install)

    I upgraded, but I don't mooch so it wasn't an issue.

    I read that the HBC channel is fine, but the Twilight Hack is dead, but the maker is coming out with something new to get around that. He also said the way the SD card is now polled by the system, more holes are present than before or at least looks that way.

    this update is totaly useless exept the sdhc support cuz if you start a game for the sd it copys a exact same file tot the wii self but you yust cant see it it i just as big as the vc game it self (so it is usless)

    If you think it's useless, you're an idiot and likely are doing something wrong or haven't done it yet to see why.

    Suddenly freeing up like 500MB of space on the Wii and dumping it all to a SD card does wonders for your ability to rapidly run games. yes it transfers a copy into ghost data on the system of the 1 game you last ran...so what? You can now run a crap load more stuff and fast, and you can save from the shop to the card too. The storage issue is more or less solved on the system outside of potentially still small 'max allowed' file sizes unless that was addressed too.

    of course its not useless even though it copies the game from sd to wii BUT the games AREN'T on the wii taking up space in the 1st place. SO copying over the game won't take up all your space. unless you have 512mb of saves games which is impossible!!
