    the patchmii installer archive that you downloaded comes with the file

    cios_patchmii_installer-rev04.dol in the archive. rename it to boot.dol and then it will show up in the homebrew channel.

    homebrew channel only recognises files as apps when they are named boot.dol or boot.elf

    hope that helps

    Cool

    the patchmii installer installs a custom firmware, as you already knew.

    as i understand it allows a couple of things:

    install a firmware downgrader Wiibrew: Custom IOS Downgrader v1.2 - Nintendo Wii News - QJ.NET
    which as it suggests lets you change your wii firmware to any from 2.1 upwards, although to be honest 3.2 is the most up to date homebrew friendly version

    install starfall http://chaoshq.de/~crediar/starfallv0.5-cred.rar (your firmware MUST be 3.2)
    - which lets you replace health warning with black screen and no longer press a to continue (which i love)
    - as well as remove the wii background music,
    - skip the disc update check (making brickblocker unecessary? not sure about that though as i always do it out of habit) but its nice to know anyway, especially with imports
    - and makes the wii region free with gamecube games, wii games and wii channels
    - i think there is more as well, including in the program itself a lengthy disclaimer noting all the risks, although i personally didnt have any problems, in fact it was easy!!!


    if you go ahead and do that, you will have a very functional and cutomised wii, the envy of all wii owners you know. and then you can show them how its done!
