Nintendont, initially developed by Crediar, is a homebrew app allowing to launch GameCube games from a USB drive or an SD card for Wii consoles and Wii U vWii mode. Nintendont requires ISO format for games on SD or USB, which can be obtained with CleanRip. The system needs to have IOS58 to use Nintendont.

Nintendont does not use cIOS nor a modified MIOS, rather, it patches IOS58; the patch Nintendont applies is a runtime patch, which means that it will not be a permanent change to IOS58. In short, components of the GameCube such as SI for controls, EXI for memory card and DI for data reads are emulated; while everything else is simply runtime patched in order match the Wii's system calls. This means that Nintendont is a sort of "virtual machine", rather than a full-on loader.

Nintendont currently does not support loading from more than two USB devices.
