    is there any way to increase the wii's system memory?

    I want to install some wiiware but I only have about 130 blocks free.
    sure I haven't deleted anything for the past 4 years but save data is like 2-3 blocks each!

    maybe I could run wiiware though my sd card without installing them to the wii's memory?

    You can run WiiWare off the SD (sort of) with any System Menu above 4.0, or you can use Triiforce.

    I run all my Wiiware directly off my SD card...no fancy sneek/ triiforce needed! Also there are like 20 pages for your Wiiware on the SD card menu so very hard to fully fill up!

    Lies! It does not directly run from SD Card [​IMG] it is copied from SD Card to the wii systeml memory and then launched, when you start another game from the SD the old one is deletec from the system memory (if you are talking about sd card menu)

    No you don't. You may think you do, but you don't. In actual fact, it is copied to the system memory first, then run, then deleted from system memory. Which may wear out system memory and sd card, copying back and forth often.

    It doesn't delete it after you exit the game afaik, it overwrites it when you copy something else (aka play another game from the SD card menu).
    Unless that's what you meant.

    The NAND is designed to be rewritten countless times, but of course it won't last forever...
