    Okay so
    Downloaded the HomeBrew and picked out some wad files and even managed to install them.


    Now the channel is there, but when I go to run it, the Wii resets and the game will not run.
    Does anyone know why and what I can do to fix it?

    what do you have installed ie i have:

    sys menu 4.0
    cios rev 10
    bootmii
    wad manager 1.4
    home brew channel
    PAL wii


    your problem may be you have the wrong region wad files installed. go back into wad manager and uninstall them (DO NOT DELETE IN SYSTEM SETTINGS!!!)
    and download wads of your region ONLY or you might brick your wii.

    so PAL wii needs PAL wads to work.

    or use FREETHEWADS before you try install the wad download FREETHEWADS its a .EXE program file all you need to do is drag and drop your wad that you want to use onto the FREETHEWADS.exe file a dos window will pop up for a split second and that will make it region free [​IMG]

    you should now be able to load the wad the previously did not work [​IMG]

    some however may need additional patching to get them to work ... namely some Japanese Wiiware like Pokemon Scramble!
