    So anyhow, got a friends Wii with a broken SD slot. It simply does not recognize any type of sd card. I'd previously modded it with an old version of Cioscorp and it has HBC and Preloader .28 installed on it. I want to install Darkcorp and was wondering if i could build an iso with the files and run it like that. I also have an SD gecko so I was wondering if that might be a better route to go about it. Any helpful ideas would be welcomed. Thx.

    P.s. it's a 3.2U softmodded

    All I can think of is using something like the Twilight Hack or Indy Pwns to run the .dol you need. Of course, I don't know much about SDGecko, so it's very possible that's your best bet. Also, you could put the files on an external HDD. I read somewhere that if a USB drive is 120GB or less and formatted to fat32 the Wii can treat it as an SD card, but I haven't tested this so it's possible it could be complete BS.

    EDIT: I just re-read your post. If HBC is already installed, you should have no problems running apps from a fat32 drive to do whatever you need to do.

    You can load homebrew from HBC off of an USB too.

    I have nothing to back this with but I would have to call BS. AFAIK, and from what every single other person has said, the wii isnt built to handle USB Mass Storage Devices. If that was the case, you would likely see all the softmod guides and hackmii installer and whatnot written with "place the files on your SD or hard drive..."

    However, someone correct me if I am wrong.

    Not necessarily...

    The wads in the DARKCORP Package are clean IOS, and the installer does the patching...



    @cable4god:
    I guess I could dump all the DARKCORP wads from my Wii, and upload them somethere, for you to install via Wad Manager...

    That way You can update to latest HBC, install IOS236, install ios249.
    Then CfgUSBLoader on USB device.
    New HBC allow to launch stuff from USB.
    Done.

    I think Homebrew Channel has had support for launching brew from SD Gecko since the beginning. Press 1, I think, on your Wii remote on the HBC screen and see if "SD Gecko" shows up in the list. You won't get fast access time with it, though, so it might be best to just use HBC to load apps from USB and go from there.
