    Ok I have finally installed HBC 1.0.7 on SNEEK and can run apps from my sd card because I conpiled SNEEK with sd access enabled. I am having a problem with switching bewtween real NAND and emulated NAND. On my real NAND I can use the bootmii config app and press A to switch to the emulated SNEEK NAND but I can't accomplish the opposite. If I run the emulated NAND and try to switch back to the real NAND by pressing A to switch bewtween ~bootmii and bootmii or by pressing 1 then switch directories nothing works. I am only taken back to HBC after a supposed succesful switch at which point I shutdown and restart my wii but end up back in the emulated NAND. I appreciate any help given!

    why the hell on earth are you creating new threads for the same problem???

    you need 2 different armboot.bin files!!

    original bootmii version in 1st bootmii folder
    sneek version in 2nd bootmii folder


    you probably have the same sneek version of armboot.bin in both folders

    Bootmii Configuration Editor: (Swap to UNEEK(+DI) and back again.)

    1. Download BCE 2.5 and extract to your "apps" folder on your SD.

    2. Open the bce_settings.xml file in notepad, it's located in the "Bootmii_cfg_ed" folder and change

    If you are running SNEEK (NAND in SD card) then to change a folder name in SD card
    (e.g. from bootmii to ~bootmii) may require a different level of access to be able to read and write
    to NAND, therefore switching back to real NAND from SNEEK NAND cannot just be done by
    a standard read/write method to SD card.

    Therefore, at this time, I think (by just reading the codes not testing it) this BCE app could
    only be used for switching from real NAND to SNEEK NAND (not the other way around like
    you have experienced), but it could be used for switching between real NAND and UNEEK NAND
    (since UNEEK NAND uses USB so SD card is available to be read/write with a standard method/access).

    You could try switch2sneek (it has not been updated for quite a time so use it cautiously), and
    read README first to make sure you have the right set-up/requirements.

    Thanks for the help guys! I'll definitely try this out.
    Also, does it matter if I am using sneek+di or sneek without di module?

    Using SD enabled SNEEK is dangerous to anything on your SD including your SNEEK NAND. I don't know where you got the info to enable it in SNEEK source, but you should be warned that writing to the SD with SNEEK(DI) both, may corrupt the files on your SD. With that being said, it does work, I have tried it. However, there is a risk involved, just because it works once with one app, doesn't mean it will work again or with another app. UNEEK(DI) both allow you to write to the SD with no risk involved as is. No SD enabling before compiling needed.

    Just to add. BCE2.6 now works from USB, and I've created a forwarder channel for BootMii Config Editor to make things easier with Sneek.
    You can download the channel here

    You'll need to use a WAD installer to install the channel.
