    Backup launcher question

    Hi there
    I am new to burning wii games and followed this tutorial to get homebrew on my wii

    Hack Your Wii for Homebrew without Twilight Princess - Wii - Lifehacker

    It worked and now I have homebrew on my wii. Only now I have learnt you need to add backup launcher to play wii games

    Is there a tutorial on how to add this to the wii?? I'm very sorry if this is the wrong section. Any help at all is appreciated

    if you are on sys menu 3.0-4.1 then try my guide here, start on section 2 after the hbc install but make sure you read the whole post....if you are on 4.2 then do shadowsonics guide here, start at step 2 etc

    Hi there, while I was waiting for a reply I tried this tutorial -

    How-To: Install Homebrew Channel & Backup Launcher on Wii Firmware v3.4 - Hacksar

    When I goto Wad Manager I install the 2 files present and that works fine.

    Then when it comes to CIOS and it tries to install it says it cant find a network connection or something (-116) I'm not sure why I think I have done everything correctly.

    that guide is a bit out of date - pick mine up at step 3d instead

    I am so sorry I'm new to this please bear with me...

    When I goto the homebrew channel there is Wad manager where I am to install
    IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad
    07-cIosz49-v7_waninkokofull-nw7.wad

    also there is the Back up Launcher

    Is this right? Or should I just start all over again? I have also downloaded Nero Startsmart to rip the cd.

    those apps/cios are pretty useless now - start over using my guide...best start at step 2

    Got to the bootmii menu and my wii remote went funny and pressing the eject/reset/power buttons made no difference and there was no green arrow either.

    It's okay, I found a really easy tutorial and got it all done and played fifa 2010 on it alright. The wii is making alot of sounds though - is that normal?
