After downloading CleanRip 2.0 for backing up Wii games and then extracting the DOL files like the instructions say to the root of the SD, it won't show up in my apps list on the Homebrew channel.
Should I just make a folder for it, stick the DOL files in it, and then move it to the apps folder?
Yes. The boot.dol needs to be in a folder and that folder needs to be in your apps folder.
