    I put it in my aps folder but homebrew channel doesnt recognize it. Also I patched a game (the dol file) to remove error 1 and 2 but now my wii wont read it

    You missed a "p",it should be in the "apps" folder, in that folder you should have the wadmanager folder with the boot.dol file.

    Sorry for being rude, but why do you need the WAD Manager? If you can't even run applications in HBC you should get more infos about the whole wii hacking before installing channels, even if you only want VC channels.

    Just place the .dol as boot.dol in /apps/Wad Manger/ and it should work. I doubt you need 2 IOS, if you are using a modchip you only need to install the IOS the game requires, there are no games which require 2 IOS.
