    Funny you couldn't find anything.

    Let me google that for you

    Mind you I'd never heard of this as it is a much older method that worked before 3.3. So if you have a Wii with 3.2 or less then it's possible if you can find the iso and have a drivechip installed.

    What's wrong with your SD slot? Has it ever worked?

    Then you are stuffed with the DVD install.

    Try a different SD card formatted properly, otherwise you are never going to get Homebrew on there.

    Is your Wii still under warranty as it can be returned as faulty if the SD slot is not working>

    Kind of on the subject: Is there anyway to install the homebrew channel via a WAD file?

    Yes there is. I have an older version in my mediafire http://www.mediafire.com/tealc99s

    Look in the channel folder for hbc.wad

    There may be more up-to-date versions floating around but that's all I have.
