    I tried it on my wii. The channel shows "???" in data management... in the menu it isnt even there.
    doesnt this guide work for 4.0?

    I got 4 working wads and 3 non working, I don't get it. [​IMG]

    It worked great at first, however some of my channels get an error while booting. It says 'error -1 while loading dol'. The games work fine when using the USB loader itself though.

    Use USB loader and go to your game press A once next screen would have game ID posted as well...just in case you do not want to disconnect your USB HD.

    There's something i dont understand. I'm runnign a NTSC-U Wii, all game channels I install should be NTSC-U or it depends on the game?
    I'm asking this because many of my games arePAL or NTSC-J since I have a region free chip.
    If I install a game channel from another region will it cause a brick?

    It doesn't matter which wad you use, because you replace the 000000.app and 0000001.app with your banner and dol respectively. The rest (00002, cert, tik, tmd) is pretty much generic. I doubt you'll be able to make a channel smaller by using a different wad, because its the 000000.app and 00000001.app parts that will have more of an impact on the channel size.

    BTW, there are numerous ways to specify the channel id. If you don't want to use the vc tool, then u can just hex edit the tmd and tik files before packing with wad packer. Or you can specify the channel id with wad packer at command prompt:
    ie. wadpacker.exe *.tik *.tmd *.cert wadname.wad -sign -i ABCD
    (just replace ABCD with desired channel id)

    are you logged in as an administrative account on your computer? If not, that may be your problem.
