    ok I installed the Homebrew Channel using the ISO/DVD method (No TP hack stuff to deal with).

    So now I have the Homebrew channel which when I click on it, it quckliy checks for SD card then there is nothing besides a flashing icon on the bottom right corner which I don't know what it is.

    Anyway, my question is, do I now have to install Wad Manager or Wad Installer? if so which one? I would prefer the one that resides inside the HB channel rather than create a new channel for it.

    I tried just creating a "wad" directory on SD card and putting a wad file in there and inserted the SD into the Wii but HB did not show anything. Yes I have it formatted to FAT (not FAT32).

    So basically how do I proceed now?

    TIA

    download the wad MANAGER app, then on the root of your SD card (open your SD card then dont go any further) create a folder named apps then inside there put all the wad manager files inside the apps folder and then it should appear, with each wad you wish to install/uninstall, place it in the wad folder and load up the HB and load up the manager

    Thanks for the reply, but that didn't work.

    I created the /apps/ directory and please wad-manager_v1.elf (which was the only file besides the 2 readmes inside the rar I downloaded) inside the /apps/ dir
    I put opera internet channel wad file in /wad/ dir
    both /apps/ and /wad/ are in the root of the SD card.

    I must be doing something wrong, any ideas what that might be?

    Put the WAD Manager renamed as boot.elf in /apps/wadmanager

    I'm pretty sure you have to rename wad-manager_v1.elf to boot.elf in order for the homebrew channel to recognize it.

    Sigh.... nobody reads stickies anymore...

    It's a shame, because if you did, you could've even downloaded a package that had everything done for you.


    I think the new sticky should read:

    Looking for Homebrew to use with the HBC?

    Get this: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_apps/Homebrew_Browser


    That would solve so many problems....
