    I updated my Homebrew Channel after not using it forever and everything except mplayer and the newest homebrew browser all say "Not a valid Wii application"

    How do I get WAD Manager working? I keep trying all kinds of WAD Managers uploaded around here and the Homebrew Channel keeps saying it's "not a valid Wii application."

    you need to get the latest versions of those programs because the libogc has changed and made old hombrew apps incompatible (it simple just visit wiibrew.org)

    The newest version of the Homebrew Channel only support DOL files (or ELF, one or the other).

    There's some program out there that will convert them to the right one for you, but I'm hoping somebody else that knows more about it comes in and gives better info than me. [​IMG]

    This is a super easy fix...
    1.) Download this: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/ELF_to_DOL_Converter

    2.) pop your SD card into your computer

    3.) Copy the contents of the Elf to Dol unzipped archive to your /apps folder

    4.) Run the *.dat file and wait for it to finish (should take a minute or so).

    and you're ready to rock (again)...

    Make sure the folder with the WAD in it is just called WAD, not anything else like WADS, just WAD.
    Also, make sure the WAD folder is just in the SD card root, not in any other folder.

    yeah I know I used to always install wads. It found the WAD and asked me to install it and I hit plus, and at Installing Ticket... it'd say Error Ret -(some number)

    Also now I'm trying Save Game Installer and my WII REMOTE won't sync @_@ I tried it twice and it just blinks when I press A, sighhhhhh.

    For Save Game Installer press A on the player 1 gamecube controller if you have one. If not that, I think maybe reset might do it. As for the WAD, I tried one many times, but it wouldn't work. I think the one I used wasn't made specifically for wii or just didn't work.

    Okay, I converted the ELF file into a DOL file but it still says it's an invalid Wii application. Help.
