Okay i just installed homebrew.
when i start the homebrew from my wii home menu.. theres NOTHING in the homebrew.. shouldnt there be menus? im currently on a firmware of 3.3u, and was needing help to downgrade back to freaking 3.2..... just so i can freaking play the stupid SSBB.. >.< i have a wiikey as well... but it seems the wiikey doesnt work for ssbb because its a firmware issue. i heard it could be a dirty lense issue. but tried using a dvd player cleaner to clean it, but its not the problem its the firmware issue. so im downgrading.

through and through, i just need help on how to add downgrade to homebrew menus.
or is it my wii has been bricked?
btw, what do they mean by bricked? and how can i tell. im a little confused on that.

THank you for reading.
I thank you for more, if you reply with answers.


Appreciated,
Nghia Nguyen

Yes, i understand what u guys are saying. But whats weird is that i have apps on my SD. and i placed it all over the place.. in the SD.. in fold APPS... Root Folder....

just a silly question, "do i delete everything in the sd folder and just put apps in there?"

i been searching but i havent found anything good..

You're SD card should look like this

SD:\apps\\boot.dol
the .dol MUST be named "boot.dol"
also, make sure the card is formatted FAT/FAT16 (they are the same thing)
FAT32/NTFS don't work.

You can have as much crap all over the card as you want (not recommended) but HBC will only look for things to run in the apps folder following the apps\\boot.dol format above.

*optional* you can also have a meta.xml and icon.png file in the same folder as your .dol file, this is only for making things look pretty in HBC.

are you following a guide? You need wad manager 1.3. Use that to install IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad. Then use Custom Wad Manager and install cios_fix.wad. This is how I did it a few weeks ago from djtaz's gamma guide. Wads need to be in sd:\wad\ folder. From there you can use the downgrader.

as it seems i didnt need wad manager 1.3 to downgrade my wii firmware..
just needed to do these following things.

IOS37-64-v2070.wad
Apps
../CustomIOS/boot.dol (cIOS37_rev3-Installer.dol)
../Downgrader/boot.dol (cIOS_Downgrader_v1.1.dol)

didnt even need a wad manager at all lol? confusing... sigh.. thanks for the help guys. I LOVE IT.. well except that i found out is the ssbb still doesnt work on my wii... i got it to load.. but then the ssbb went blank WHITE.. after the loading... it was nice of it to show a ssbb screen of the game.. but after it loads.. pure blankwhite screen.. if you guys can figure this part out... oh man that would help truly tremendously.
