    Hopefully once bootmii is released and homebrew developers get a new environment with much more freedom than the current Nintendo one we'll see a program like that, I think it would be the best thing to happen to the Wii since the USB Loader.

    The thing is, I'm actually very interested in this because I want to have as little interaction with the NAND as possible, that's why I absolutely hate 4.0 and the way it handles WiiWare and VC games.
    Maybe I'm this way because my flash memory tends to corrupt from time to time, or maybe because I dunno I'm just paranoid about something messing up, but the less you install to it the better IMO.

    As far as custom channels go all I have is a USB Loader Forwarder and one of the very first ones with no music or anything so it takes up very little space and that's it, I run everything else from HBC.
    Of course I have a bunch of WiiWare and VC Games installed, but I had no other choice but to install them.

    I feel the same way about it. I want to keep the writing to the nand to an absolute minimum.

    It should be possible as long as you would provide the decrypted contents, and the bootable contents patched as necessary.

    Didn't Waninkoko's original USB / SD loader videos on youtube show him loading wiiware? (that hamster game...?)

    That shows it's possible - the question is - how to get it on to WBFS.


    Edit: Maybe not... Looks like it came out on Disc

    No it was a DVD game running off of NAND, just a really, really really small one
