    Hey, I'm really new to the homebrew scene. I've successfully done mine and one of my friends DSI's to run roms and I had no issues. I now realize I can do this with my wii to also run roms. I googled it and followed some tutorials. I got the homebrew channel onto the wii really easily, using the DNS trick.

    This is where I ran into issues. First I tried to install the cIOS, trying different versions into different bases and that jazz. I am trying to run MKWii as a test game, which I compiled using wiibackupmanager, and the iso works great in dolphin, so I don't think it's the iso file.
    Everytime I tried to run it, the system would kick me back to the homebrew menu, or freeze on the game or a black screen. I can't seem to fix this.
    I don't know if my version of cIOS is up to date as people have mentioned v8, mine has v6, beta-v10-alt, and beta-v10. If I am using a wrong version a download link would be greatly appriciated.

    I have now formatted my wii and updated it, and then reinstalled homebrew to try again with some advice. I am using a USB stick with 8gb avalible (I only plan to use one game as I have loads on disks, therefore this is more than enough). I've tried using NTFS and fat32 as a format parameter but to no avail.

    If someone could maybe create a small guide or provide some tips on where I'm going wrong that would be great, I just wanna play some Mario Kart after all

    Try modmii, you'll kick yourself for not using it sooner :)

    USB sticks usually don't work very well. You would have better luck with a small hard drive or sdhc card

    As @XFlak recommended,please use the ModMii Tool for a simple and fast Way to mod your Wii.
    AND the SAFEST.:)

    You can also use the "Letterbomb" Exploit and then do all Steps by yourself too.:)

    - Do the Letterbomb Exploit
    (This installs the Homebrew Channel and BootMii)
    - collect your Tools and Applications
    (MultiModManager or WiiMod Lite/Priiloader/d2x cIOS Installer/Simple IOS Patcher/USBLoader GX or WiiFlow or Configurable USBLoader and many other....)
    - Install .WAD Files with MultiModManager or WiiMod Lite
    - Applications with an .dol File inside belongs mostly on the SD Card in the Folder "apps"

    Please Note: If you download a "not good" Tool/Application/WAD File by Accident, it can BRICK your Wii and make it. UNUSABLE.

    It is your Choice which Way you use.

    Good Luck.
    Thank you.:)
