    Alright I have the homebrew channel and I just got teh wad stuff installed. But now the Cios installer and wad manager both don't appear on my wii. What's wrong? I also re-downloaded the homebrew channel to beta 8 to use teh .elf files. I have the Cios installer and the wad manager in teh apps folder.

    Are the actual files labeled as boot.elf or boot.dol(depending on what version of HBC you're using)? If not, they won't show up in the HBC.

    Is your folder structure, correct? [​IMG]

    EX:
    [sd]:/apps/WAD Manager/boot.dol
    [sd]:/apps/cIOS Installer/boot.dol

    Nope. it didn't work. All there is in teh folder wad manager is teh wad manager .dol file, and two text documents. The Cios folder has teh patchmii installer .dol file, README text document, a file called MAKEFILE, a file called, COPYING, and two folders, data and source.Am I missing stuff?

    Never mind guys! I figured it out! I found the WAD folder in the backup channel files and copied it to the SD card root. Alright, this can be locked now. Thanks for your help guys.

    if your SD card is drive F, follow this file structure :

    F:\
    ----apps
    ---------wadmanager
    ------------------------boot.elf
    ------------------------icon.png
    ------------------------meta.xml
    ----wad
    ---------piratedgame1.wad
    ---------piratedgame2.wad
    ---------cIOS.wad

    Also from now in instead of making a new post everytime you figure out something, just hit the edit button on the bottom of your post and edit what you want to say on that. When everyone starts bumping their posts the forum can get really sloppy!
