With the WAD manager. It is recommended to use the IOS 249 (cIOS) from Waninkoko, or another IOS with the signing bug (a.k.a. trucha bug). Otherwise, you'll get errors during the installation, because that bug is needed to install and write contents in the NAND.

If you followed one of the guides from this forum, it is sure that your console already has it. Just download the program (google it) an execute the *.dol with the Homebrew Channel. Then, choose "IOS 249" on the first screen (if you have it, it'll be the default value). Then, choose the device you wanna use to install WAD's from. Remember that you have to place those WAD's on the folder "wad", which must be on the device's root directory. If not, they won't be detected by the app. Got it?
