Hello everybody.

I really don't know what to do.

I installed the homebrew channel using the Twilight Hack. No problem here.
But, when I put the apps folder on my SD card, HBC can't read it :/

It says something like "Loading SD" ,then this disappears and I can just see the bubbles going up.

HBC beta 9, WII 3.1, no GC memcards plugged in, tried with KingMax 128mb SD and Kingston Japan 2Gb SD.

Any ideas?

Thanks

linkinworm is partially correct

aswell as boot.dol... meta.xml and icon.png should also be present in the directory

and im sure that BOOT.ELF files no longer work under hbc beta 9 without converting them to dol format 1st

if you still have problems loading anything from SD you could always use wiiload to boot applications without the use of the SD card

He's 100% correct.

The xml and icon CAN be in the directory - they don't have to be.

hmmm not for me it aint meta.xml and icon.png must be present (how else would the HBC be able to tell the difference between between each of the applications as the directory name aint used for anything)

and i suppose im wrong about elf files with beta 9 i suppose ... o0o0o let all attack the n00b with the low post count!!!! get your head out of his arse!!

and on a side note this is exactly what pisses me off about this forum you try and help someone out and some prick always has to start shit

Seeing as the directory structure is correct, the sd card properly formatted, would you guys have any other ideas or clues?
I'm stumped here.

I'll try wiiload, but I don't have wifi for the time being.

I tried with a crappy KingMax 128 mb which could install the twilight hack just fine.
I also tried with a Kingston 2gb, same problem...

Do you think it could have something to do with the 3.1 Wii system software?

if the xml isn't present it displays the full path to the application.

See http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_Channel

"
However, if the application did not come with icon.png or meta.xml, its appearance on the menu is ugly, and difficult to distinguish from other applications. To fix this, text and an image can be added.

Nobody attacked you - you simply had your mistake corrected. Learn from it, don't act like a tit because you tried to correct someone else and was wrong.

LOL I think you need to get your head out of your own.

You are the only one starting shit - you "corrected" linkinworm with misinformation and then had yourself corrected. Act like an adult and not a screaming child.


Sorry to the thread starter for his thread getting derailed.

Haha, it's ok

Well, some news, it seems the sd slot on my wii is f*ed up.
I have to press my finger on the sd card for the system to read it correctly.

Which brings me to another question:

- I have to keep my finger pressed on the sd card to open the backup launcher gamma.

Is it ok to remove the card once the game is launched?
Is there any way to install it in internal memory?

Thanks again.

There are channel versions of the backup launcher all over the forum, any of those should work. (ocarina codes need an SD card though)

Once the game is loaded, the card isn't needed.

Could always try taping the card in or a little paper padding between the card and the white flap that covers it.
