    My apologies if this is a stupid question, but I am really not very up on the details of wii hacking, even after trawling through alot of posts on here! I'll get there though!

    My problem is that I have successfully installed the Homebrew channel using the Bannerbomb exploit on my 3.3E I then downloaded a cIOS installer along with Wii Gator 0.3 gamma. The cIOS installer appears to install without any problems, although I'm afraid I don't know what ios its installing!!

    The strange bit is that when I run the Wii Gator install it doesnt put a channel in the wii menu! It will reboot the wii and load whatever backup game is in the drive, so it appears to work fine! But every time i want to play a backup I have to re-run the installer as there is no channel to select!

    Have I missed something or is this just a screwy wii gator download i've got?

    Please help as I want to get it right!

    Many thanks.

    you probably have a dol file which will not install a channel but as you say run a game form the drive if you wish to install it as a channel you will have to find wad manager and a wad version of gamma and then install it using wad manger
