    If you have the Homebrew channel up and running all you need to do is to add a wad manager utility, the most popular one seems to be the one made by Waninkoko, check out this thread for more info:

    Once you have installed the manager properly on your SD card, simply launch it and install the wad file according to the instructions given on the screen.

    TC: Search button.
    Sticky
    Whathever else.


    BTW you're half hundred years before...now the "hip" things are impossible softmods and fake isoloaders...

    To your question, just use WAD manager if you have HBC, go to one of the stickys, there will be an icon of WAD manager, click it to download program, put it in ROOT/apps/wadmanager, then download game wad, put it into "wad" folder, launch HBC, Wad Manager and install it...

    Sweet...Okay i got to the "initializing WAD manager" then it says press 1 for SD or 2 for USB mass storage device.....
    say i have the wad for Pokemon ranch right now, where do i put it on the SD card? do i just put it in the root? or am i suppose to creat a special file?


    Thanks for you help soo far

    Don't these things come with readme's/guides...I know I've read a guide for installing VC/WiiWare games, maybe even on this site

    Yes, there are about 50 guides and FAQs on installing Wads... the OP is just too lazy to actually LOOK... it is clearly posted in a Sticky (that's the ones at the VERY TOP that will never move) on exactly how to install Wads.
