    I'm really having a hard time with the Wii's lack of system memory. I dont want to keep inatalling and uninstalling different wads. I've tried used the installing Gecko os but there is no "rebooter" option like I've read searching the forum. I tried using triiforce but it just freezes. I have Wii menu 4.3U and IOS58 shows up at the top when I start up triiforce. I really have no idea what Im doing. Please help

    thanks

    Do you have an emulated NAND? (follow these steps to make one). Mighty channels may be better than triiforce, but they both need to have an emulated nand to do their thing.

    Try uloader, have the first partition as fat 32; easier than UNeek or Might Channel.
    There is a guide on google and on that Spanish site.

    I dont have an emulated nand i believe. Isn't messing with the nand a big risk for bricking?

    Yes messing withtheNAND is risky.
    THAT's why we are saying to EMULATE your NAND = NO RISK.

    Check my article in the tutorial section about using sneek with sd only. It can launch channels from an emulated nand on sd as well.

    You need to install the wads to an emulated NAND, you can't just play wads.

    Or update to SM4.1/4.2 and use an SD/SDHC card to play wiiware. Simply install, then go to channel management in the wii menu and MOVE them over. Job done

    I think I'm on the right track but where do I get boot2_sd.bin and armboot.bin? It says to put them on the SD card but the modmii did not make those files?

    and will this set the program to start running the program when the Wii starts up because I would rather just run the emulated NAND when I want to.

    **Edit button is going to blank page. sorry for double post if it works**


    I got the emulated nand to work. I'm trying to use WAD manager 1.7 to install the wads to the emulated nand but I dont get the option to "install to emulated nand" when I use ios 236 but it does show up for 249 and freezes when the option of "nand emulator device disabled". When I select IOS250 the emulation option is not there.

    This is getting frustrating. Please help
