    oookay, so I've never hacked anything before. This step by step guide is very easy to follow, except I need a couple things clarified.

    "STEP TWO:
    Download and copy the Homebrew Channel Installer, the boot.elf, and copy it to the root of your SD Card"

    Does this mean I am to rename this file (the_homebrew_channel-1.0.1.tar.gz) boot.dol/elf?

    So, I will have the_homebrew_channel-1.0.1.tar.gz renamed boot.dol (if this is what I'm supposed to do) and then have the private folder on the sd as well or am I supposed to have one of the files in there (for my region and TP game version) on the root?

    Why is it that I cannot just find this boot.dol file somewhere.

    Yes, I need my hand held, thank you.

    the_homebrew_channel-1.0.1.tar.gz that means its a compressed file. extract it with winrar.

    Me again!

    So, I extracted the boot.dol from the homebrew channel file, had it in the root on the sd, as well as the private file.

    In my Wii is shows a blank sd card though. I deleted all but my region files so I only have the rzde folder on my sd, still shows a blank sd card.

    I reformatted my sd, it's FAT and all that, just to be sure.

    What am I doing wrong? I was going to take screenshots of my sd directories but I think it's pretty self explanatory.

    Edit:
    I've checked my TP hack file I do have the right version for my Wii 3.3. (beta1)

    Editing again: 'kay, I've changed my bin file to 'archive' off to try this again.

    I edited that out, it installs the files onto the sd card for you.

    Alright probably a dumb question... But how exactly are downloaded torrents of games, burned to DVDs, played on Wii?

    Oh and BTW, does the SD card need to stay in the Wii? Or only for uploading apps and then it's saved?
