    A lot of things I download just give me a .dol file and say "Run using homebrew". Well if I put it in my SD root and start up homebrew channel, nothing happens. So how do I run these .dol files?

    the dol file needs to be in its own folder inside the apps folder on the sd

    for example

    sd:apps\neogamma\boot.dol

    And name the file boot.dol, else it won't be seen bij HBC.

    make a folder on the root called 'apps'
    make another folder in 'apps' and name it according to what program it will contain
    place the .dol file within that folder and rename it 'boot.dol'
    it will now show on the hbc

    TOPIC POSTER, You made my night, dude.....

    Follow MattJIP, ROOT/APP/FOLDER NAME/BOOT.DOL (reanme if the file is not boot.dol.

    I wondered this when i fix modded my WII back in April, but I found the answer MYSELF, by reading the README.TXT, or if there wasn't one, I'd use GOOGLE.

    I recommend Homebrew Browser - Put it on your Wii and you'll never have to worry about finding icons for the homebrew, and it makes it really easy to install new homebrew or update ones you already have. [​IMG]
