    Okay guys, I'm REALLY new to this, so please bear with me.

    I received a Wii from my parents this Christmas, and since I went to Canada for Christmas we didn't get a chance to get any games. My dad bought me Super Smash Bros. Brawl from Canada, only to realize afterwards that it would not work on our European/Australian Wii. When we got back from Canada, my friend gave me a call, telling me that a homebrew program called Gecko OS would let me play the game, and it did.

    He used his Zelda Twilight Princess to install the Homebrew Channel onto my Wii, and it's been working great for me. Just today I installed Backup Launcher Gamma onto my Wii, and that too has been working.

    My uncle asked me whether I could install the Homebrew Channel onto his Wii for him, as he doesn't have Zelda Twilight Princess. I don't either! I used my friend's copy of it! My friend rarely picks up the phone so I can't really reach him, so I was wondering if there was a way to install the Homebrew Channel without Zelda Twilight Princess.



    Thanks a lot.

    If you have a mod chip you can use the iso installer, but then you would be able to play games region free anyway. For your purposes, no, you need a copy of twilight princess for the region of the wii that you are trying to hack.

    I don't recommend a modchip as it seems you have little experience.
    if I were you, I'd borrow it from a friend, even rent it.

    So there's absolutely no way to do it (via soft mod) without Twilight Princess? [​IMG]

    Yeah, you really need Twilight Princess. Sorry about that. You can rent it. Or get your dad to pay for that game! [​IMG]

    if you also have firmware 4.0 on your wii than there's no way to install the hbc even with the TP hack cos 4.0 has blocked it.

    No because you still need the game to run the save file right? [​IMG]

    Yeah even if you have the hacked save file on your Wii you're still going to need the game to boot it up.

    If you uncle wants his Wii modded, tell him its gonna cost him 20 bucks for the tools and time. Go rent the game for $5, buy yourself a pop and put the rest in your pocket. [​IMG]

    Sorry, I thought you could caus this dude said so on some other forums.
    But I'm not going to name it because the mods don't like links to romsites.

    It's being worked on. That exploit hasn't been released yet.

    Read more, post less. [​IMG]

    That's the problem!
