    DopMii and cIOS Installer works, but other wads not shown in homebrew channel

    Sorry, I posted this thread in the Forum Help section by mistake. I misread it to be something it was not. All my patches are applied and everything is working. Great! Now I am screwed. When I load a WAD file (WAD manager or any other homebrew app) wad in the SD, it doesn't show in the homebrew menu. I am tempted to wipe the whole thing and restart.

    Edit:

    I followed this No need to post links to other guides here.

    and



    Everything was working fine until I tried to load any other wads. I even tried guides here and the wads wouldn't load. I also reformatted the SD card.

    Do you mean it doesn't show up on the list in Wad Manager from the wads folder on your SD card? Your post is a little confusing to me. If this is the cae what type of SD car4d are you using? You might trying doing a full format on it, not a qucik format and see iff that helps.

    I will try a full format. I am using a Lexar 2gig multi-use stick. Sorry, what I was saying was that certain applications show up in the homebrew browser. So DopMii and CIOSinstaller can be seen in the menu, but others can't.

    OK. that make a little more since. A wad file is not what you see in the Homebrew Channel. A wad file is something that get installed into your wii. Anything that is displayed in the Homebrew Channel is an application and most of the time is a file called boot.dol. Somethings I have found before and still do by mistake is to not have the folder/file structure correct. As an example for DOP-mii it looks like this.

    SD:\apps\DOP-mii\boot.dol
    SD:\apps\DOP-mii\icon.png
    SD:\apps\DOP-mii\meta.xml

    Make sure that the application folder under the "apps" folder contains a file called boot.dol.

    Sorry, .dol. Even then they don't show. To test what was going on, I downloaded the file pack from one of the tuts, and had everything in the root folder how they show it, and it still didn't work. :/

    I'm guessing it's an SD card compatibility issue.

    If it was an sd compatibility issue, i suppose that even dop-mii or cios installer shouldn't show up in HBC. I guess wrong file structure.

    You would be right on that. Double check the file structure.

    Again this is wha it should look like.

    SD:\apps\(WHATEVER APP)\boot.dol

    This is the mistake I find myself making

    SD:\apps\(WHATEVER APP)\(WHATEVER APP)\boot.dol

    That was my problem Krafter, thanks! I spent all day yesterday fiddling with my Wii to the absence of sleep, eating and socializing and I got burnt out. I now get a -1 error. I took some snapshots.

    OK, I think we are both confused on what you are trying to do. I have never seen this "yet another Wad Manager" that you are using, I use the plane old trust worthy "Wad Manager".

    A ".wad" file is not the same thing as a ".dol" file. A wad is something that gets installed into your wii using an app like "wad manager" launched from HBC and a dol file is just an app that runs on your wii with no install that launches directly from HBC. Dol files go into a file structure as we have been discussing and all wad files go into a folder called "wad". Example:

    SD:\wad\SOMEWAD.wad

    If you are getting a -1 it is most likely a SD card compatibility issue. either reformat or buy a Sandisk or wii SD card.
