    Hi Could somebody please explain how you make channels (for wii menu)
    Of the apps you can run in Homebrew,
    As over the last week i have been sorting my wii out so it will run games
    from usb device and at some ponit along the way i managed to get 2
    channels (Usb loder gx & The homebrew channel) on the wii menu but i
    can't remeber how i did this.

    now i know i read somewhere that there is a way to get wads for most
    of the apps so you can make the channels so could someone please
    upload or point me in the right direction.
    the apps i want channels for are

    WiiMC (Wii Media Player)
    MPlayer CE (Wii Media Player)
    Wii64 (N64 Emulator for Wii)
    Snes9x GX (Super Nintendo Emulator)
    Pcsx-Revoution (Playstaion 1 Emulator)

    Just thought to add I'm running on 4.3E just incase thats makes any diff.
    to the wads i can use & my wii is not on the internet.

    You need to install the wad's on your nand. You can use the Multi Mod Manager for that or the Wadmanager Gui. I am sure there are others that work as well.
    Those programs need full nand access to do their job. For that purpose, either they run on an ios with AHBPROT rights, or they run on ios236 which is basically a version of ios 36 installed in slot 236.
    You have 2 kind of homebrew wad's. Some contain a forwarder to a homebrew program, which is basically just a small application that loads the program itself from sd or usb. Others contain the program itself embedded in the wad. Those usually take more space, need to be reinstalled for an upgrade, but run a little faster.

    Also be aware that installing a bad wad can banner brick your wii. If you don't have bootmii @ boot2, the least you should have is priiloader installed to fix things if they go wrong.

    Maybe he just misspelled admin?
    Sometime I also don't write the correct word and I write something completely different (not just mixed letters).

    Anyway, I deleted the other duplicated topic, so the case is close.
    Double posting happens, just report it and we take care of them.
    Let's go back to the topic's subject.

    this is the app i use, it's from a different site.(wadders). it has all the tools you need to get started, just use customize mii, for making channels. or play around on this site, an you'll find real cool channels for just about everything.

    WiiMC already has an official channel, google it.

    You can find premade channels for all the other ones on CustomizeMii's main menu, all you have to do is choose the one you want and then set up the forwarder by going to the Options tab, clicking "Forwarder..." then "Simple Forwarder" and then entering the name of the folder the app is in (for example, if the app's path is "SD:/apps/mplayer_ce/boot.dol", then you would type "mplayer_ce")

    Internet Explorer is your first issue. Use Google Chrome and life will become better.

    Fixed. Get Chrome. It almost never fails.

    And, if you are using USB loading and you want to load ISOs from the System Menu, try crapwii.
