    This is a tutorial I made originally for Wiiso but I decided it my be helpfull to some of the noobs here.

    In this tutorial you’ll learn how to install Starfall on you’re Wii. All the pics in this tutorial were taken by me! Before we begin I’m taking note right now that I don’t take any responsibility for you bricking you’re Wii. Alright let’s begin!

    You’ll need the following to install Starfall
    Wii with update 3.2 (If it’s not 3.2 you’re SOL.)
    SD card reader for you’re PC
    SD card (Wii compatible)
    Starfall files (Download link in topic)
    Homebrew channel

    Firstly download this zip. It contains the Starfall files (I took them directly out of my wii)
    Code:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?0azynmmgmww
    [​IMG]

    Extract the Zip file. Doesn’t matter where but you have to be able to find it. lol

    [​IMG]

    You should get a folder called “Starfall”.

    [​IMG]

    Next open up the Drive you’re SD card is in. In my case it’s Removable Disk K: Drag and drop the “Starfall” folder into the “apps” folder on the root of the SD card.

    [​IMG]

    Take out the SD card and put it in you’re Wii.

    (if you need a picture you’re pretty sad)

    Next you'll want to turn on you're wii and boot up homebrew channel.

    [​IMG]

    find the starfall folder Click and open it

    [​IMG]

    You'll now get a black screen with writing on it. read Carefully. Then press B+1 at the same time. It might take a few tries but it'll load up a screen with a bunch of options.

    [​IMG]

    You should get the following screen.

    [​IMG]

    To install any files simply select the ones you want press A and it should say install on the far right of the selection.

    [​IMG]

    when you've selected everything you want to install press 2 button and it should install everything. After its done press the A button to reboot you’re Wii.

    [​IMG]

    There you go. You're wii now has Starfall!

    If you want me to make a tutorial on how to use any of the features let me know. [​IMG] comments are appreciated.

    Im wondering if maybe all these guides and tutorials could not be put into a "FAQs and Tutorials" section of some sort. Would sure go a long way to keeping the Wii Hacks section clean.

    Isn't it a bit stupid to tell them to press 1?

    You're supposed to read the disclaimer

    Yeah, I suppose so... No offence, but that's really the only useful thing about the tut, and you would know what to do if you read the disclaimer anyway

    I personally agree. But apparently most people think this is a tutorial good enough to be stickied and (copyrighted, which made me lol) so whatever. If it helps even 1 person then I guess its a good thing [​IMG]

    Just a quick question. Is there any of those options you wouldn't install and why?

    I haven't got no bgm and replace health warning with backmenu on because I like the bgm and no health warning can make bricks worse

    Maybe you should add this

    health warning is good when you don't have Recovery menu installed by Starfall , and if you have Starfall you don't need helth warning cause you suppose to have recovery menu installed !!!!

    Thanks for the Tutorial. While we are here, what are the potential downsides to installing this?
