    Got a nintendo wii today, Already have a 750GB external hdd, looking for a step by step guide to run wii games from that hdd, if there is one.

    Also, do i need to have an SD card to get the homebrew on the console or can i use a usb drive as i have plenty of them in the house, but no SD cards.

    Thanks in advance :)

    You can probably use that web exploit to install without an SD card. I'll check.

    I haven't tried it yet myself, but a bluetooth-based hack was just released. This was necessitated by the lack of an SD card slot on the Wii Mini, but it also works on original Wii models.

    Requirements:
    - Linux computer
    - Bluetooth adapter

    I haven't kept up to say for sure, but it might also be possible to run this from a virtual machine.

    Yes, this is the one I was talking about. Also, I recommend you not follow any video guides. They're pretty unreliable.

    wii.guide (the website) has served me well. Organized, step-by-step, and accurate
