    I made a small tutorial how to make a WAD Installer ISO, which works with the SD Card, so you only need to burn it ones and only have to replace the Wad file on the SD Card
    There is no TP Hack required it will work immediately

    What do you need:
    -A Modchip
    -Wad Installer DOL (http://waninkoko.wiinewz.com/WAD-Installer_v1.zip)
    -Trucha Signer
    -Wad File to install
    -SD card
    -A DVD burner
    -A DVD
    -DVD Burning software

    The Tutorial:
    1.Download the Wad Installer and extract it somewhere
    2.Open Trucha Signer and select a game iso(It doesn't matter what)
    3.Right Click the Main.Dol of the second partition
    4.Click Replace and replace it with the wad-installer.dol
    5.Sign the partition and close Trucha Signer
    6.Now burn the iso to a DVD
    7.Ones the burning has finished you can put the burned dvd in the Wii
    8.Now connect you SD Card to your computer
    9.And in the root of the SD Card place the wad file and rename it to title.wad
    10.Now you can start the DVD and the WAD Installer will boot up
    11.Press 1+2 or the Red Sync button
    12.Ones it says the wiimote is connected press A
    13.The Wad Installer will now install the WAD file to the wii system this will take a minute
    14.When it's finished it will automaticly reboot the wii and the Channel should be there

    Don't you need to rename it to main.dol and replace it on the second partition?

    Why not just use the elf and avoid all the messing about?

    1) Put wad on root of SD card and rename it title.wad
    2) Boot WAD installer via twilight hack and install.

    Your way seems like an awful lot of work for something so simple.

    Just the first time it takes some longer but ones you have the DVD you can always use it to easily install a WAD file

    Alternate method is to install the Homebre Channel to install the wad files.
