    I was wondering how to add apps on the homebrew channel. Do you add them while you are making the homebrew channel (while performing the twilight hack) or after you are finished making the homebrew channel? Also I read on http://hbc.hackmii.com/download/ (the offical homebrew channel site) that in order to install a homebrew app you need extract everything *in* hbc_apps to the root of your SD card. What does that mean and how do you do that? Please reply if you know anything. Thank you.

    After installing the Homebrew Channel install this-

    http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_apps/Homebrew_Browser

    With this installed you can download any homebrew you want in a Wii Shop Channel-esque fashion! You no longer have to drag and drop files to your SD card. Just simply click download.

    The apps I like to add are:
    GameCube Linux v0.4
    ScummVM rev32231
    Tetris v1.2a
    Wii64 Wii Tiizer Edition
    Gecko Region Free v1.5
    Which are the apps in the Apps Package hbc_apps.tar.gz (which can be downloaded from (http://hbc.hackmii.com/download/). But the thing I don't get is what they mean by extract everything *in* hbc_apps to the root of your SD card. Where is the root of a SD card(I'm new to this)?

    The root of the SD card is the first thing you see when you open up the SD card to see the files.

    Oohh ok thanks. But I still don't get one thing. Do you add the apps while you are creating the homebrew channel (so the apps files are included with the twilight hack in the sd card when you are performing the twilight) or after you finish creating the homebrew channel?

    Also what kind of SD card do you use for the twilight hack (what format: micro SD-transflash, mini SD, and standard)? What SD format does the wii read?

    You don't even say what the problem you're having is, what error you are getting !!

    However as is stated in many many threads on a daily basis, use good media, either Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden and ImgBurn to create discs and most of your problems should go away.

    Wait do you still need to perform the twilight hack if your wii is modded(I have a wiikey installed) in order to get the homebrew channel or can you just burn the the homebrew channel iso and run it on your wii?

    You have to twilight hack install the homebrew channel if you're updated to firmware 3.3

    Or if, like me, you just didnt want to use a DVD, lol.

    ok guys a little help please. I have a 3.2 ntsc wii with wiikey. I installed the hombrew channel just fine but for the life of me I cannot get the darn apps to show up. I am trying to use the wad manager and install some wads. i have tried everything you guys have posted so far but whenever i go the the homebrew channel and try to do it, its just the hombrew channel and the wadmanager doesn't show. Please tell me what I am doing wrong its getting pretty frustrating.

    I tried doing it with apps in the root of the sd card with wadmanager in that with all the correct files in it. I tried just putting the files on the sd root but I can't get the darn thing to work.

    I am having some problems. I have the USB Loader, I have the Homebrew Channel, I also have CIOSvr19 installer, DopMii(v12), FCEultra GX nintendo emulator/Channel Installer, IOS58 Installer and Snese9xGx Enulator. I still have no clue what I am doing wrong to have the new Channels added. I even tried downloading wad and putting them on the root of my SD card. Need some help, please and thank you very much.

    Bannerbomb would be easier to use to install the HBC rather then using the twilight hack.

    The HBC directory should look like...

    SDroot:>apps/application folder/boot.dol

    So lets say you want to launch WAD Manger via the HBC.

    On your SD Card root create a folder named "apps", inside the apps folder create a folder named "wadmanger", inside that folder place the aplication boot.dol file (if the aplication .dol file is not named boot.dol then rename it to boot.dol).
