    I have downloaded homebrew on my sd and then onto my wii and it worked fine. But when I downloaded the bundle.zip file onto the wii, I get an error each time I tried to start a backup game from a different region on my ntsc machine? Should I be able to play these backups? And if so, can you walk me through the procedure with backup launch?
    Thanks,

    There should be an option shown on the launcher screen to press something ("B", 1, etc) to enter the config screen. Press and hold that button, then select config, then move to the line which says "Force NTSC" and change it to "Yes", then select "Launch game".

    A better option for you might be to install a channel which automatically forces NTSC on all games. This will make sure all compatible games load regardless of the game region. This works for me like a charm.

    Sorry for not understanding everything. I am a novice. How do you create a channel?

    You don't need to create a channel, just download and install one of the ones listed in this thread:
