I just Soft-Modded my 4.2 Wii (Yes 4.2, and it took me three tries) and I cannot find a good place on the internet to download custom Wii Channel wads. Like for MPlayer CE and SNES GX. I used to know this really good site that only had a list of channels on it, nothing else but the screenshots, but I can't find it anymore. Anyone know a good site with custom wads (not VC or WiiWare please)?

this has a bunch of mine, and at the bottom of my post are links to lots channels made by lots of other people

XFlak's Top Wii Channels!

* All forwarders updated to v9 (still the latest and greatest in 2021)

NOTE MANY OF MY OLD LINKS ARE BROKEN, BUT ALL THE FILES (AND MORE) CAN BE DOWNLOADED FROM HERE (updated Jan 2021): http://www.mediafire.com/?q81nr8xrw5385 or here https://mega.nz/folder/J95iVADK#TBIWvd2_HuB87TBQktKk5w


Update History
  • December 21, 2010 Update: Updated the following channels to v3 - these forwarders require IOS58 and boot using USB2.0 speeds. They are also able to launch apps with arguments and direct hardware access from and SD card and a FAT32/NTFS Hard Drive (note, if trying to boot an app from an NTFS hard drive but the app doesn't support NTFS results will vary). Thanks to Narolez for the NForwarder code and to FIX94 for helping me compile it.
    • FCEUGX (NES Emulator)
    • SNES9XGX (SNES Emulator)
    • VBAGX (Visual Boy Advance Emulator)
    • WAD Manager
    • Wii64 (N64 Emulator)
    • WiiXplorer
    • WiiSX
    • WiiMC - new to this list
    • USBLoader - new to this list (same as the one supplied in ModMii)
    • March 24, 2010 Update: Added Triiforce forwarder channel and fixed the audio for the fceugx and visual boy advanced forwarder channels [old versions only captured half the audio (ie. the left side)]
    • March 22, 2010 Update: Updated Neogamma AutoMod Channel to r8-Final (old version was based on r8RC3*)
    • March 3, 2010 Update: Updated Neogamma AutoMod Channel to r8RC3* (old version was based on r8RC3)
    • Feb 17, 2010 Update: Added Wad Manager Forwarder Channel and WiiXplorer Forwarder Channel
    • Feb 16, 2010 Update: Updated Neogamma AutoMod Channel to r8RC3 (old version was based on r8RC2)
    • Feb 14, 2010 Update: Updated Neogamma AutoMod Channel to r8RC2 (old version was based on r8RC1)
    • Feb 4, 2010 Update: Added fix for Mplayer_CE forwarder channels (look inside the MPlayer_CE spoiler for details)
    • Feb 3, 2010 Update: added alternate fceugx and snes9xgx forwarder channels. Also added an MPlayer_CE forwarder Channel.
    • Jan 30, 2010 Update: added FCEUGX (nintendo emulator) Forwarder Channel w/ amazing custom "Mario Underworld" Rock Remix Audio by my cuz Violator

Note that all my channels have been modified by me in some shape or form
(at very least changing the forwarder or adding a splash screen),
but they were created by combinations of other peoples work.


Installation Instructions for Beginners:
-Copy the filename.wad to SD:\WAD (or USB:\WAD)

-Open your preferred Wad Manager via the homebrew channel

-Make sure you've saved WadManager in the following place
(SD or USB:/apps/WadManager/boot.dol)

-When you start Wad Manager, choose a fakesigned IOS to use to install other IOSs (249 or 36 are common choices).
-Choose to leave Nand Emulation Disabled.
-Choose the SD card or the USB2 device (depending where you saved the wads).

-Browse your device for the wad/channel you want to install, then hit "A" twice to install it.
(Note: YAWMM & MMM support batch installing and uninstalling files)

-If you've installed a forwarder channel, it will launch the application under the paths I've specified. So forwarder channels also require you to download that homebrew application and save it to at least one of the paths specified. For example, the Visual Boy Advance Forwarder Channel requires you download the homebrew application from here, and save it to at least one of the following locations:

S/apps/vbagx/boot.dol
S/apps_emulators/vbagx/boot.dol
USB:/apps/vbagx/boot.dol
USB:/apps_emulators/vbagx/boot.dol

-If it is not saved in one of the above locations, the forwarder channel will just return to the main system menu.

-If I do not say that a channel is a forwarder channel, it means it is not a forwarder channel and the channel will still work without having an SD card or USB hard drive connected to the Wii (examples: Priiloader Shortcut Channel, BootMii Switch Channel, etc.)

MPlayer_CE v0.76 Forwarding is Fixed!

As seen in the above video, I can launch mplayer_ce v0.76 successfully, and it also exits without stack dumping.
To get this to work properly, download the mplayer.dol (from the MPlayer_CE Fix links below), rename it boot.dol and use it to replace the existing boot.dol in your mplayer_ce (or mplayer) folder(s).

Here's a video of the Neogamma r8RC1 Auto Mod Channel (r8RC2 and above operates the same way, but it instead launches games 5-10 seconds faster)
Note that the second time I loaded the channel I hit a button to cancel the autoboot sequence[/b]

I'm keeping this forum alive lol, I'm currently working on a project called "The WAD Resource". It will be a website (Hopefully accessable from a wii even though you cant download files) It will contain a lot of wads that will be safe for all systems and have many events like "WAD of the week" and submitting your own channels. Don't expect it to release soon becuase I relativly new to HTML,CSS,JS, and PHP. But it will release this year hopefully :)

I've cancelled the project for now, I'm actually working on much bigger projects for the Nintendo homebrew and hacking community. Don't think it's gone forever, I just pushed it off to the side for now. Also, if I could figure out the file upload features and sharing files, it would be a lot easier. Here is a very unfinished link, maybe this month I'll just add a lot more WADs and push off the other features. https://the-wad-resource.then00b21.repl.co/
