    Hello

    I installed wanikoko's System menu 4 and it installed perfectly.
    I noticed that twilick hack dont work and I decided to install Wad manager 1.3 using The homebrew Channel.

    I have used many different sd cards and microsd cards but i get error 1 or error 2 (i have tried to format with Fat 16 and Fat 32)
    I have also tried the older Wad installers, but them dont work.

    It is strange that wad installers wont install, but other homebrews (dol files) installs well with The homebrew channel.

    Is there some solution to install wad files? Or install Wad manager?

    Thanks.. (ive got wiikey)

    P.S is there some ather ways to install wad files than twilight hack or wad installer?

    some stuff you seems to be mixing:

    - Twilight hack is only used to install the Homebrew Channel
    - Homebrew Channel can be used to run applications from SDCARD (like WAD Manager)
    - WAD Manager is an application that install WAD files as channels in your system menu

    so now, what doesn't work ?

    Note that WAD Manager won't work anymore on 4.0 unless you installed a Custom IOS (cIOS), otherwise you are screwed regarding channel installation.
    And obviously, you can not install cIOS anymore if you already updated to 4.0

    Shit, I was planning to update with that tutorial. Btw that error usually means that something is wrong with your SD card.

    WAD-Manager wants wads in a folder named 'wad' on the root of the card. If they are in the root of the SD card or in the apps folder they will not be found and return a -1 error. If you have them in the proper folder and you still get a -1, your SD card is probably not readable by WAD-Manager for some other reason.
