    I am surprised that no one talked about this problem. THe problem is that the SysMenu comes with only 4 pages of channels! Currently, I've got only 5 spaces left. it'd be great if we could change it in a way that when we'd put a channel on the last page, a new one would appear. I'd also like it if we could get numbers at the bottom to change page. I hope it wouldn't be too hard to do.

    I think most people don't find this as much of an issue since the Wii's internal memory is only 512 MB. Most people are lucky to be able to get that many channels without running out of memory.

    Also, you can always update to 4.0 and put your less used channels on your SD card.

    Well since the release of the USB loader and game channel, my Wii's sysmenu is starting to get over-crowded. [​IMG]

    Also, hopefully someone will make a mod to the sysmenu to install to USB device so that would be needed.

    The Wii's nand only supports so many writes before "dying" so I don't want to slow down my Wii. XD

    That's why you put the ones you don't use much there. Besides, the constant installing and uninstalling of channels, IOS's, and other things that we all do here are just as taxing on the NAND as the VC menu is. And every time you play a game, you save multiple times and write to the NAND. The thing is built to be written to constantly.

    usbloader takes ONE space in the channel menu regardless of if you have 10 games or 400,
    people who put forwarders on every damn thing they have deserve to end with a brick!

    and you can - there is someone on this forum with one.
    he ran out of nand-space installing all these damned channels - then when he went to delete a few he found wad-manager couldnt run because it needed space for the task!

    from what i remember once he ran out of flash a lot of stuff wouldnt run.
    i think he may have solved it finally by wiping a bunch of gamesaves.

    as for being harsh, i'm a bit fed up with seeing several people on the forum each day with a brick because they decided to install "everything" or close to it,
    or they tried upgrading and downgrading a dozen times, or they thought it was clever to change the region everytime they wanted to play an import.

    the wii flash is something to treat with respect, get the firmware version you want - leave it,
    put the ios etc on it and then just enjoy the games.
    that's what it's for afterall - games.
    there is really no need to be trying to "fix" it every day - that's why windows was written! [​IMG]
