    Homebrew apps launch

    I just loaded Homebrew channel onto Wii.
    I also have wiikey mod.
    As well as firmware 3.4u

    A Problem I have is loading any apps from the SD card,
    Tried root directory, apps folder.
    Also formatted in format fat16 and then tried fat32
    This is also a 512mb card

    One thing I see on homebrew is there is 2 icons, one frog and one parrot.
    the parrot lights up, I assume that means that it is reading SD card.

    But after trying 3 apps I am at a loss of why it is not loading.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    are renaming your apps to boot.dol?also it might help if you change your files to read only

    Yes they are boot.dol
    Tried in root directory as well as in a sub directory.
    I did not set to read only though.

    Got it to work,
    I ended up putting directory apps/program/boot.dol instead of boot.dol or apps/boot.dol
    Seemed just a directory issue, now I have no problem loading programs
    Still working on the Ocarina to load though, shouldnt take much to figure out
    I loaded up geckoOS successfully.

    Any more tips would be great.
    Thank you
