    Hello, I'm trying to use WUFE on my Super Smash Bros Brawl disc to get the IOS36-64-v1042.wad file needed for Waninkoko's Custom IOS36 rev 06. However I'm having a bit of a problem... for you see, when I go to open WUFE in The Homebrew Channel(I'm using the beta9 version), I am given an error that says "This is not a valid Wii application". Could some one come to my rescue?

    Thank you so much, for taking the time needed to read my request for help.
    I hope someone can figure out what's wrong.

    is your wufe using an elf file, if yes, then you need to either find the dol equivalent or convert to dol. beta 9 is not compatible with elf files, dont ask me why.

    otherwise install beta 8, this loads elf files

    if it is a dol file, make sure its called boot.dol

    Ah thank you so much. May I ask, how does one go about converting an elf to a dol?

    its all discussed here

    i didnt have to convert my elfs as i found all the ones i needed as dols, i think i read this morning and the convert is a bit hit and miss, i would just go back to beta 8, not much difference and higher compatibility. link to beta 8 is in that topic somewhere

    Thanks again! That was easier than I thought it would be.

    First: I will bump this tread, because a New one is useless...

    So, I just found this great Homebret App, downloaded, launched and...Invalid File (Homebrew-Channel 9)...so I searched for a .dol Version, but didn't found one...I even tried to convert it with ELF to DOL Converter...with the boot.dol, I tried it again and...seems to work...but now after Press A to start dump, I get an Reader Error, Application freezes...Anyone is willing to help? Maybe with a working version or something...

    Thanks in Advance

    I also have HBC Beta 9 and needed to use wufe.

    Well, my hacky workaround was to put a copy of the homebrew app Front SD ELF loader in the HBC apps folder. I use it to run wufe and other elfs that HBC9 won't run. However, you need a GC controller to use it. I just dumped the wads on Wii Sports to test it. Make sure everything is OK with your SD card too.

    Here, we made a HBC icon: [​IMG]

    Find the app over at wiibrew.
