    Is it possible to use a homebrew starter (such as HackMii Installer via Super Smash Bros), and then just directly use one of its features (or run some 3rd-party thing) to play region-free, without actually installing anything onto the wii?

    I.e.: do this each time you play:
    1. Put in Smash Bros and SD card.
    2. Open the cracked map to load some homebrew installer/app.
    3. Select region-free feature.
    4. Put in an 'other region' disc.
    5. Play.
    6. Turn off wii.
    7. No evidence of hacking left on wii / no homebrew installed.

    You advice is greatly appreciated :-)

    The system is NTSC-U. We have super smash-bros brawl, an SD-card and a USB stick. I know my way around tech and I could probably install homebrew, keep system updates at bay, etc. The problem is, I am doing this for my extended family's wii, so it is better I leave them with a safe way where they do not have to worry about updates, even if they have to re-exploit each time they want to play an 'other region' game.

    Thanks for your help!

    Get the boot.elf for Gecko OS from Joostin's link and put it in the root of your SD card. You don't need any other programs if all you want to do is run out-of-region games.

    Launch SmashStack and Gecko OS will run. Once Gecko starts, remove Brawl, put in the out-of-region game you want, and hit Launch Game.

    just use any bootloader on any common game that have save exploit or something.

    sometimes it wont work, probably on Wii that doesn't have exploitable IOS.

    I suggested Gecko OS because it doesn't need a cIOS, and it will install/update the needed IOS if you don't have it.

    @OP: You should look at Letterbomb. You won't need to run a game to do it, since it runs from the mailbox. The only inconvenience is that you will have to scroll back to the same date each time you want to run it.
