    So i have installed homebrew but I can't seem to figure out how to get emulators and ROMS on there. I have downloaded what i though was the SNES emulator via GITHUB and have placed it on the SD card in maybe 5 different places with no positive outcome. what am I doing wrong? What Emulators should I download and how do I get them on the card properly? I want to play NES, SNES, N64 and other Wii games (if thats possible). HELP ME. I'm sorry for being a noob.

    The folder for the emulator needs to go in the apps folder on your SD card. You should have no problem using an NES and SNES emulators. That being said, N64 emulators are severely limited by the Wii's lack of power, and emulated N64 games are not very playable. If you want to play an N64 game, you should use Virtual Console for those instead. As for Wii games, you can use a USB loader like CFG USB Loader Mod to load Wii games off a USB drive.

    Which folder is that? I'm genuinely lost. Haha
    And I can pass on N64. You make it sound easy to load Wii games though. Where would one locate step by step on how to do that mod? Here in this forum?

    The apps folder should be on the root of your SD card. A homebrew application comes in the form of a folder with (among other things) a boot.elf or boot.dol file inside it. You are to put that folder inside the apps folder.

    Small issue. It's booted to the Bootmii menu and I can't get my wiimote to pair at all. Thoughts?

    If you're not trying to get into the bootmii menu when you power on your Wii, then you need to rename the bootmii folder that's on your SD card to something like "bootmii backup."

    On a random note, why was I not able to pair a wiimote when in the bootmii loader?

    Gambia, The
    BootMii starts up so early in the Wii's boot process that the bluetooth hardware is not even initialized at this point. So the BootMii Menu can only be navigated by pressing the Power and Reset Buttons on the console itself. At least that's how I remember it. This explanation is quiet simplified so if anyone can explain any better, please do :)

    This is correct as far as I'm aware. In bootmii, you need to use the reset buttons or a GameCube controller, if I remember correctly. It's been years since I've booted into bootmii.

    Is Bootmii what I will be using to boot Wii Games?

    No, the Homebrew Channel its the area where you will access homebrew you got.

    IOS236 its needed for installing any other cIOS, but you said you already got homebrew running? do you installed IOS249, 250? among others?

    Please perform a syscheck on your wii, download it from here: http://www.hacksden.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=149

    run it view homebrew channel, and paste here the syscheck.cvs generated on the root of your SD card.

    You need custom-patched IOSes to run Wii games. If you don't post about the same issue in multiple threads people can help you better.

    Check here on how to install d2x v8 or v10-beta52. Don't use beta53.

    As you can see:
    IOS222 (rev 65280): Stub
    IOS223 (rev 65280): Stub
    IOS249 (rev 65280): Stub
    IOS250 (rev 65280): Stub

    You need some custom cIOS son ;D

    Do this, for simply use, download ModMii for PC, and launch the Not Graphical Interface, write i Agree, then write SU, which stands for System Update, grab your SysCheck.svc and drop it on the modmii window, it will generate the needed files in order for you to play wii games off the USB.

    It will display something like this:
    [​IMG]

    After that, continue with the tutorial that ModMii will give you

    Nop, there's not, so you will have to use another PC, or Parallels/Bootcamp. or a virtual machine will also do the work.
