    Well hi,

    could someone tell me what to do now after installing the homebrew channel ? i lend me zelda finaly and installed the homebrew channel with the twilight hack now i would like to know what i need and such so that i won't need the twilight hack anymore, i read you could use the homebrew channel to install the VC games and such ?

    plz just tell me everything might it even be the most usless shit (as long as its related to how to use that homebrew stuff) i would feel better if i get everything explained as good as possible i have no money to get a new Wii XD

    For VC games, and WiiWare games, put WADmanager (download @ wiibrew) in a folder on the root of your sd, called apps. (ROOT>apps>WADmanager>(content of wadmanager)).
    Then, get a reliable source for WAD's (vc games and WiiWare games).
    And put those WAD files in a folder called WAD (ROOT>WAD>(wad file's)).
    Make sure it's your region btw, you can use a region checker for it (don't remember where to download it though...).
    Then, launch WADmanager from the HBC, and install the games pressing +, and remove them using -.

    (Don't install all your games, keep thinking about space for the channel, because there was someone who bricked his wii by putting to many WAD's on it.

    thanks mate !

    got the wad manager now and trying to install ...

    is it normal that it stays at 0% for more than 1 min ?

    ------

    umm ... i don't have to install the wad manager ? so this loading wad manager is only stuck at 0% cuz there is no wad on the sd card ?
    seems i am stuck at that screen

    Follow what Wabsta has said, and download applications from wiibrew, and follow read me instructions otherwise you might run into problems, e.g. the app not working.

    Remove anything in the Gamecube Memory card slots, and see if it's still stuck at 0%.

    Hey, I have a wii currently on 3.2E but I really want dokapon kingdom which seemingly requires 3.3, I have a couple of "Trucha patched" games and I was wondering, how good is Gecko OS at the moment?
