    Isn't it kind of annoying that HBC freezes on certain apps when a memory card is inserted in slot 2. What's the point of limiting slot 2 use to USB gecko now that there is real SD slot support? I usually keep both GC memory cards plugged in, and it's a pain to take memory card 2 out every time I want to run something.

    GeckoOS can run as an app from the HBC. What's the point of still using GC memory slot 2 for that stupid old device?

    If you don't already know why a USBGecko is still useful, then you shouldn't be bitching about it.

    No, I don't know how it's any more useful than a simple SD card. Care to enlighten?

    You haven't tried to write Wii homebrew before, have you?

    USB gekko is the best way to debug applications, it's not a *stupid* device

    just keep in mind, homebrew channel is not only for users but also for devs

    and we could return the question thuis way: "What's the point of still using stupid GC memory card in Wii homebrew apps when sdcard is available ?" [​IMG]

    You are mixing up SD Gecko and USB Gecko. They are named similar, but completely different in what they are and what they do.
