    I've been away from the Wii hacking scene for awhile, so I was wondering if someone could clarify a few points for me.

    1. Is there a way to play Metroid Prime Trilogy via HDD without having to use boot.dol? In other words, playing it the way it was ment to be played.

    2. Is there a way to run GCN backups using a HDD? EDIT: Sorry I forgot to put without WODE. I mean just using a SD card, and Hard drive

    I have a 4.1 US Launch Wii if you needed to know.

    1. No, though you only need to use the boot.dol once, I believe

    2. WODE.

    #1. Yes, there is. Using Uneek ( Nand emu ) and an extracted image of the MPT game.
    For more info, check out the Sneek/ Uneek threads.
    Modmii is able to set up your virtual ( or multiple ) nand and the needed files.

    #2. If you want to run GC backups from HDD, you will need a WODE or other hardware. ( usb gecko, sd boot )

    Gambia, The
    MPT should work flawlessly with Uneek.

    About GC games from HDD, there's Swiss. With a SD Gecko, you can load games from sd card, and with an ide-exi, you can load games from IDE HDD. Both is additional hardware, but doesn't require opening the Wii.
