    I'm running Waninkoko's 4.0. My two questions are...

    - Is there a way to install games directly to the SD card instead of to the internal memory first? Even if it's a PC app or something.
    - I was told before that it was best to uninstall the WADs using the WAD manager, not to just remove them through the Wii's built-in delete feature. It doesn't seem possible once you move the channel to the SD card (as the channel is no longer installed on your Wii). Is there a way to completely remove it after you've taken it off your Wii's internal memory and stuck it on your SD card?

    Yes you could actually do this in theory, it would be VERY complex and I ain't gonna explain more on the extracting and signing, as recently I read a lot about it, and I mean a LOT for a different thing. The games (VC or WiiWare) would not play on any Wii though because the Wii needs certain files in place (tik etc) so it's pointless just now.
    The games need signed using the Wii, and you could get the files needed from the Wii but as I said it's pointless for now.


    - I was told before that it was best to uninstall the WADs using the WAD manager, not to just remove them through the Wii's built-in delete feature.

    If you only ever remove them with the built in feature you leave "crap" behind. There are a few threads here where people then can't get certain things to work if too muc "crap" is left behind.

    - It doesn't seem possible once you move the channel to the SD card (as the channel is no longer installed on your Wii).

    Uninstalling once moved to SD will remove this "crap" but then the games can't be played on the Wii.

    - Is there a way to completely remove it after you've taken it off your Wii's internal memory and stuck it on your SD card?

    Yes, use Wad Manager or ATD to remove the traces, but as I say you can't put it back on the Wii so it's playable.

    Well, that answers most of my questions, but raises one more. Is there a way to scan your Wii for games that have traces left behind?

    Edit: AnyTitleDeleter seems to do it, but it's nearly impossible for me to read on my SDTV... I can't make out the letters at all. Any way to dump the list to a text file or something? Or is there a similar thing that makes it easier to read?

    Yes you can get "title lister", I don't have a link sorry and the one on WiiBrew is not as good as.....the one that outputs to titles.txt on SD card ,you can then take that to the PC to view.
    It wil give you a list of all the IOS, and the games identified by there 4 digit ID: RXXP etc

    Someone want to post a link for the guy to the title lister that outputs titles.txt to SD ?

    I would find a link but am on my way out the house as I type, hopefully this bump will bring you a speedy reply from a kind member.

    Nice, I found the Title Lister that exports to a txt file just by googling for it. Seems to work well, and it at least makes it easier to interpret whatever is listed on the AnyTitleDeleter screen. I take it stuff like the Forecast and News channel shouldn't be removed? And I should just assume all my IOSes are fine?
