Once upon a time in the Mii maker, I put a name for the "creator" that I now find embarrassing. Is there a way to remove it so that it doesn't appear in the list of creators anymore?

pretty sure modmii by @XFlak is all you need. you shouldn't have any issues regardless of firmware.

So I know if native controls are enabled in nintendont you can't quit out of a game normally and have to unplug your wii or hold down the power button, which can damage an HDD plugged into the back. I am aware there was a workaround developed but so far I've been having trouble getting it working. My question is: if there's just one game I want to play with native controls could I just put that and Nintendont on an sd card and manually turn off the wii? Would it damage the sd card (i assume not) and would it damage the HDD if I'm not actually using it to run the game?

You can't exit to the Homebrew Channel with the button combo?

Yes. Put the GC game on the games folder on your sd card, and when you first run Nintendont click on "SD" instead of "USB". It should show & play the game you have stored on your sd card.
Would it damage the sd card (i assume not) and would it damage the HDD if I'm not actually using it to run the game?
No. What would damage either of them? Nintendont damaging the usb hdd because a game is being loaded from the sd card instead of the hdd? No!

*i was replying to this ☝️
Thanks, I just heard it was bad to directly unplug an HDD without letting it slow down properly and wanted to make sure.
No, i was just replying to your question on your first post above..
As for is it bad or if turning off the Wii abruptly can damage the hdd, as long as you're not just removing the Wii's power plug from the wall socket while the Wii's working, you should be fine.

you might be able to do that with mii using save game manager gx, but I don't know for sure. it can grab miis from your system, and I think you can delete them or modify them.

I just want to play using my nand saves from a wii to another wii.
How can I transfer my nand saves(using usb loader gx) from the wii nand to a sd?

Can I use this sd from one wii to another?

You can back them with either SaveGame Manager gx. Or through the data management on the Wii's settings, though that wouldn't work for games that have save Anti-Piracy measures.

Read above.

For just your saves? or for everything, homebrew apps, games etc.?

you also can transfer Miis from a console to other using the wiimote. on the Mii Channel you can copy from/to a wiimote.

    @KenniesNewName That's the problem with gadgets, there's a new one being leaked, announced, released every week, and if you wait for something better to come along you can wait forever, there's always something new on the horizon.

    Same thing with price too. Miyoo Mini is $50 and it's fine, but RP2 is only $100 and has way more options, but now there's the RP3 and it's just $30 more, but the Ayn Odin Lite is $190 and it's very powerful, but the Ayn Odin Pro is $250 and it's an absolute beast, but now we're already in the Windows handheld range and I really would like a Windows handheld... Ayn Loki starts at $200, but why not add a few bucks for better specs... but now we're close to the Steam Deck and that is a much better choice...

    So we get from $50 to $500 in tiny, reasonable increments.

    My attitude in those cases is to decide what I want in that particular moment, not waiting for emminent releases. And decide based on function, that is, if I will use it almost daily and if it satisfies my desire/need

    I just give up on buying anything and wait until the desire subsides. Works just as well.
