    Freezing While Reading Code...

    First let me start of by saying that I have searched here, and through google for about three hours to find an answer to this problem with no luck. I may have missed something along the way, so please don't yell at me if I did.

    So, I finally decided to take the plunge today and use the Twilight Hack to put Homebrew on my Wii. I followed both the README and the Step by Step Homebrew Guide, from what I can tell, corectly. I put the SD card in my Wii, deleated the Twilight Princess save and put the correct Twilight Hack region specific file on my Wii. I was able to load Princess, and pick, again, the right save file for my disc version. After talking to the person, or running backwards, the game goes black and begins to read code on screen. After it gets to boot.dol/boot.elf found! and breaks into three bars of code below it, it freezes and just stays there.

    I have software version 3.4, have Twilight Hack beta 2, saved the private directory and homebrew (renamed boot.dol/boot.elf) on the SD card's root, and don't have a memory card over 2.0 GB.

    I read somewhere that if I was renaming the homebrew file, I was doing it wrong and I must unzip it, but there is nothing to unzip.

    Edit: Right before the code breaks into three columns, the text says: "Exception 0300 occured!" Could this be the problem?

    Can anyone please help me with this problem?

    ~thanks

    Try reformatting your sd card to FAT32, if that doesn't work try a diff card.

    if it were me, i would think that having both a .elf file and a .dol file both named boot it could potentially throw up a problem. it seems when the twilight hack is running, it cannot boot up the homebrew installer. do you think thats where it hung?

    try with boot.dol only as i believe its the prefered option but i cant recall why . . ? . . !

    I have already reformatted my SD card to FAT, sadly.

    And let me clarify. I don't have BOTH a boot.dol and a boot.elf file on the SD card at the same time, but I have tried both. I probably sould have been clearer.... Sorry.

    And yes, I'm pretty sure the Wii cannot read the Homebrew. I am aware I must have done something wrong, but for the life of me I cannot figure out what! I don't think the card is the problem, as it is above the minimum storage compacity and below the 2 GB maximum, and is regular SD. (as opposed to SDHC)

    Angry New problem!

    Well, I was able to fix the problem. I did more searching and realized I needed a third party extractor software for the tar.gz file. After successfully installing Homebrew on my Wii, I eagerly enter the channel. But, after the globe blinks in the bottom right corner, the screen just sits there with the bubble. After waiting, I click the Home button on the Wii remote and a box with the options to reload, exit, or the about screen comes up. But at the top left of the screen, it says "Network not Initialized" and nothing happens. I have tried reloading and letting the channel be for 10 minutes, but nothing happens. Can anyone help me?

    Have you got any apps on your sd card? All the homebrew channel does is allow you to run stuff - if you have no stuff to run on your card nothing will happen!

    After that happened I went onto the official site and downloaded the app package. I unzipped it the same way I did the troublesome Homebrew file to the root of my SD card, and then put it in the wii. And still nothing happened.

    Are the apps in a folder named apps? and are they all renamed to boot.dol and within their own folders in apps directory?

    I'm sorry, I'm not following when you say: "and are they all renamed to boot.dol and within their own folders in apps directory? "

    No, they are not named boot.dol, just their own program name such as scumm or whatever.

    I'm sorry, I'm not very good with code. How would I name ALL the files boot.dol?

    Wait. Yes, they are all found in the apps directory, and they each have a boot.dol file in them along with .png or .jpeg images and READMEs.
