    I'm certain that I'm missing something brutally obvious, but here it is.

    I've successfully installed the homebrew channel and I've got a handfull of homebrew apps running correctly through it.

    I'm trying to unpack a few wad files but I can't get the homebrew channel to display any of the wad installers that I can find. I've tried wad installer 1.0, 2.0 & 2.1 as well as wad manager 1.3.

    I'm placing the wad installer applications in the apps folder of my SD card and have the WAD files themselves in a folder called wad in the root.

    What am I doing wrong?

    EDIT: forgot to say earlier - I have been putting the wad installers in a subdirectory within the apps folder called 'wadinstaller'

    Heck no! dol files have to be called boot.dol for the Homebrew Channel to find them. Wad files can be called "whatever you want".dol but ideally be in the sd:\wad folder.
