    Exclamation Installing WiiMu...HOW DO I DO IT

    Ok, I've been around the Wii hacking community for a bit more than a month now, and I haven't had any problems that I couldn't solve by searching until now.

    HOW THE F*** DO I INSTALL WIIMU

    I wanna install it so I can run channels through HBC (I set preloader to load to HBC on boot)

    I download the file and then - "What the hell is this?"
    The .rar has like 2 folders and I'm wondering what the hell the second one is for, and how to use the folder with the .elf file.

    Here's what I did so far:

    Method 1
    Ignored extra files, took the folder with the boot.elf and stuff and put it in apps folder. I open HBC and it says "not a valid wii application" or something like that.

    Method 2
    Took sub folders and files from the second folder and put them on root of SD. Tried opening WiiMu again and come up with the same result


    This is really pissing me off. I hate opening HBC from menu every time and I hate holding the reset button to open menu if I change the preloader settings. Help me please this has become so troublesome.

    Actually it gives the same result >.>

    Why would the creator leave the file as .elf if it wasn't gonna work?

    I found the problem. The elf file is invalid and newer versions of the Homebrew Browser refuse to load it. Just convert it to .dol with the ELF to DOL converter.
