    I just installed 4.0 update and I got these wiiware game in .wad files. I tried placing the .wad file into the root and even wad folder but its not appearing on the SD channel.

    It's easy. Buy the games and install them directly to the SD card from the Shop Channel. [​IMG]

    Or... buy them, install them to the internal memory, and then go to the memory management screen to move the channel to the SD card.

    If you are on 4.0 without any homebrew you can't use any homebrew so you cant do anything with those wads until a new way to install the homebrew channel on 4.0 is found. So you're stuck where you are now and can't do anything on this site to your wii except legitimately buy your games through the shop channel.

    there is some sort of program that can regionfree the wad files, but i dont know which one exactly. freethewads?

    what i would like is when i have .wad files on my computer that i can directly extract them to my sd card and then play in the sd channel.
