    Delete the Homebrew Channel, update to the latest Wii Software, and then try installing the Homebrew Channel again (with the new beta 1 Twilight Hack).

    I've heard of WiiWare games restarting the system with 3.0 software, but not VC games. How did you install the VC games/Homebrew Channel? Both with the Twilight Hack?

    yes i used the tp hack to install the channels. i also tried to install the wad installer channel via tp hack but can't use the wad installer channel after installation just like all my other channels . the channels load on the wii menu and i can click start but then they reboot the wii back to the start menu.

    i heard that custom channels fail below v3.1. but vc games should work once you have v2.0 (the first update at launch)

    It's entirely possible that you're missing IOS files for these channels.

    I'd try to download some IOS wads somewhere and install them, or get a game that has a bunch of them (Like Brawl)

    You don't need a new System Menu (3.1, 3.2, etc.) but you will need the IOS files. (IOS30, IOS35). Of course, I don't know which ones you'd need necessarily. You could try running the SD Title Lister (No link sorry) to find out what IOS version you have on your Wii... Then post the results here.

    the firmware was the problem . so it seems that vc channels from wads and custom channels will only work on 3.1 or higher. i used the update from mario kart wii in order to fix the problem . thanks for all your help
