    Today I downloaded a bunch of different homebrew apps from Wiibrew and a few other sites
    I copied them over to the apps folder on my SD card but when I launch the homebrew channel they will not show up

    I just softmodded my wii a few days ago and right after doing that i was able to download the homebrew browser copy it onto my memory card and it worked fine

    So I don't know what I am doing wrong now

    does anybody have any suggestions on what I can do

    all app go in the folder "apps" on the root of the SD, each app then must go in its own folder within the "apps" folder example - apps/WiiMC/, each app folder must then contain the app but must be named boot.dol or boot.elf depending on what you have, you can then have a meta.xml which contain app name, coder, version and a basic description, you can then have a image to easy recognize what app that is by glancing which must be named icon.png with dimensions on 128x48px.

    all 3 files boot.dol/elf, meta.xml and icon.png must be place in each app folder for HBC to see it as an app with picture and description.

    example

    meta.xml

    icon.png
