    Ok, so I am currently confused with how things should be set up in the end before inserting the SD card into my wii...

    Should the ROOT of the SD card contain...

    A boot.elf from Riivolution
    A RiiVolution folder containing a NewerSMBW.xml along with it's other stuff (And it's boot.elf it came with before)
    The NewerSMBW folder with it's normal stuff...
    A Private folder containing the letterbomb...

    Am I missing anything that would be bad? Or am I including too much, saying the instructions say to have the boot.elf at the root, and then later don't even mention it...

    (Also, that side note, will it work?)

    Thanks to anyone who answers!

    You a have a picture with a preview of the SD folder and file structure on the site you linked

    http://newerteam.com/help/graphx/sd-preview.png

    add boot.elf to that and you're ready to go

    to play newer super mario bros. than you would need to make an app folder on the root of your sd card than put the riivolution folder on the root of the sd card. then put the riivolution folder with mario bros xml in it and put the newersmb folder on the sd card root to.

    This is only if you have the homebrew channel or want it.

    Ok so I should have everything!

    I'm guessing I would swap the boot.elf with another one for the Wii64?

    I was just asking if it is possible to run Wii64 in the same way, and I assumed it has a boot.elf? And if so, do I just swap the boot.elfs to run the Wii64?

    no, i don't think so

    step 1: is your wii softmodded? if not, forget about it

    you should softmod it, and then, use the proper files and method for wii64

    Edit: I mainly want to run this (http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Gamecube_Saver) , and after reading that boot.dol is trying to be found after boot.elf if it's missing, I'm assuming it will run that if it is found and the files are found,would it work even if I'm not using a gcs, but a gci?
