I tried in Ubuntu and gave up, what would the command be if the .img file is on my desktop and I'm extracting it to (G:) in Windows? I have a dd clone. I also found an ext2 manager for Windows.

Would it be easier to send the extracted files in a zip?

Does it have to be ext2? I read that the Wii can't write to ext2. It also says my thumb drive is write protected under ext2.

Thank you, you have bean a big help.

I'm still stuck though, I don't know how to create two partitions in Windows or Linux (Ubuntu Live Disk) and be able to access the second partition.

I'm using Mikep5 to boot ext2, what is the command to bring up X Server?

I tried typing X, this is what happened:

/tmp/.X11-unix has suspicious ownership (not root:root), aborting.

hmm... Looks like the file permissions were not preserved when you extracted the archive. What program did you use to extract it?

I had to use sudo chmod 777 to gain permissions in Ubuntu. I used the default archive manager in Ubuntu.

Is this safe for Wii U?

Has anyone tried a USB wireless N interface with this? I installed aircrack and reaver today on it for some testing, but there's not much you can do since most people no longer use b/g.

I downloaded and installed Chromium browser via apt-get, but now where do I go to open it? There is icon and no search to find it.
