    Hey, is there a way to get back to the wii menu or home from playing a gamecube game??
    im playing a game and i wanted to switch to wii, but the only way was to turn off then back on, is there an easier way, "home" key doesnt work!

    nope no way to get back to the wii menu once in GC mode. Hopefully Nintendo does something about this with a future update.

    That would be a great fix. I hate having to get out of bed to turn the wii off after playing some gc games on it. Whats the point in a wavebird if I still need to get up?! [​IMG]

    Theirs no GC mode so to speak on the wii. It has a built in gamecube so the home button will never work as the GC never supported the wii remote. Unless they find away in GCOS to do it.

    I think it might be possible that there atleast will be an update which will cause the Wii while in GC mode to switch back too the Wii mode when you press the power button. If you press the power button at this point while in GC mode then it looks like the Wii is restarting and after the restart it shuts off, so the update would make it complete the restart instead of switching off.
    There will be almost no change that you could turn it off/restart with the Wii-Mote because the Wii completely acts like a gamecube in GC mode so it doesn't let a Wii-Mote connect to the system. The whole gamecube program would have to be updated too make that possible and I think that there's no change that Nintendo would do that.

    I have had a couple times some sort of error during the GCOS multi-image stuff, that caused the Wii to reset completely back to the warning and press A to continue screen. So it is possible, just not reliably doable right now...

    Yes there is, much like the GBA mode on the DS. Also GCOS runs as a gamecube game and can't use the wii remote, usb ports etc.

    GBA mode is also independent of DS mode.

    Yeah, I couldn't believe when I found that was necessary. It is completely fucking lame of Nintendo. They really could have worked to find a way around it.

    They probably felt it would make it easier to get homebrew running if GC had access to the Wii side of things.

    Not if you're going to use one of the Wii Channels or VC games I suppose.
