    I've done a bit of reading for the past hour but I can't seem to find my definite answer...

    Is it possible to just load the ISO for the Homebrew channel by itself and not have to do the Twilight Hack at all? I don't have an SD card handy at the moment and I'm not really wanting to run to the nearest electronics or camera store to buy one...

    Thanks to all those who leave helpful replies, cheers.

    In regards to Wii specs if needed:

    WiiKey 1.9S
    3.2E (Pretty damn sure, My friend is playing Wario Land right now so I can't check

    If you have a drivechip and are not using 3.3 firmware, then yes, you can.

    Yep.
    You don't need the Twilight Hack if you install via ISO.

    But you need a SD card for the applications unless beta 9 or something has libdi DVD homebrew support.

    In which case, you'll still need the DVD stub installer.

    I believe it is possible to use a dvd to install the channel if you already have a modchip installed. Otherwise, you will have to use the twilight hack to install it. I'm just using a microsd from my R4 with the SD adapter.

    As the Wii is designed to prevent the use of unauthorized software, installation requires the use of software exploits. There are currently two ways of installing the Homebrew Channel on a Wii: using a bug in the signature verification of discs and a modchip, or using an exploit in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and a specially crafted game save copied from an SD card (the Twilight Hack).

    Thanks for the fast replys guys, I'll buy an SD when I'm at the town, but I'll download the channel right now. [​IMG]

    Also, as far as I understood...you can use TCP Loader to "send" the applications to the Wii and install them. You just need to install de Homebrew Channel (if I'm wrong, correct me)
