Should i start over and delete everything from my SD card...? I can't belive i am making such a "pigs ear" of this....
    ... copy the contents of the "put on SD card" folder onto the root of your sd card. thats all you need to do and the file structure will be correct.

    Gotta give me *some* credit. I only mentioned to use the last 3 options in starfall. If you do things I dont tell you to do, how can I guess what has gone wrong? >.<

    Now, the ultimate test for me is to get a game and see if it will work.

    Question though. In the guide, it says:

    DjTaz_gamma_Loader.wad - This will give you a Gamma launcher channel.
    You can skip this if you prefer to launch backups from HBC.


    My only objective is to get .iso games and burn it to DVD. Will they launch from HBC? Or do I need to install the Gamma launcher? Apologies if this is a stupid question. Just a total newbie here who just wants to play more Wii games without burning the pocket.

    Again, thanks for the help. Much appreciated.
    They can launch from homebrew channel, but I did not include that application in my collection of files. I prefer using it from a channel because then the Sd card is not required in the wii. The backup launcher channel is basically the same thing as the backup launcher from homebrew channel, except the backup launcher channel is installed as a channel on the system menu. Just seems more convenient to me I guess.

    had another quick question, if you look at
    the list of compatable games on the wiki thread,
    why isnt everyone doing this instead of soldering mod chips?
    Although a very small percentage of people dont have luck getting gamma running or completing the downgrade process, I have yet to see one person brick their wii by using my guide.

    Is this update necessary?

    Thanks!
    Necessary no, but cant hurt either. I would do it

    Great tutorial!

    This was an awesome tutorial. Most of my questions were answered by re-reading it!

    I did have a few caveats that I passed along to a friend that expressed interest in following in my footsteps. I wrote these in an email, and figured I might as well add them here.

    1. Read the guide a FEW times before starting it. Make sure you follow all the steps.
    2. Update to the latest version of the Wii firmware before starting the tutorial if you are < 3.4. (Do that through the Wii settings). Be careful about doing this months from now when Nintendo has an update higher than 3.4
    3. Make sure you're connected the internet before starting the guide.
    4. Use the link on the guide for the files to download.
    5. Remove all accessories from your Wii.
    6. If you already have a Zelda save game on the Wii, be sure to copy the save game to your SD card before starting the tutorial, then delete it from your Wii after you've copied it to your PC
    7. After copying over the save game to your Wii, don't press the home button. This resets the Wii. Instead, press the back buttons until you are back on the channels page. Then Launch the game.
    8. The step where you have to press B+1, it will seem like it doesn't work, just keep trying to press it.
    9. Use Verbatim media!
    10. SD card must be 2GB or less, and NOT SDHC

    Sorry if these are noob questions just don't like useless things.
    You can delete all files from SD card after installing the tutorial steps if you wish. The Gamma loader and Homebrew will be installed as 2 separate channels....no need for an SD card or files to keep them. The Homebrew channel is your gateway to play lots of homebrew games and offers you oppritunity to use other homebrew apps. You can simply keep the homebrew browser file on your SD card. Once in the HB browser, you can download free homebrew games and apps. Those games and/or apps will be automatically installed on your SD card. You'll get it.

    All firmware options are not visible on the screen at the same time. Keep pushing the arrow down button until you see the desired update for you. Begin over starting at Step 2.

    I burnt a copy of mario kart and all is good. I still use the gamma launcher to play it. I burnt it using Imgburn choosing 2x speed.

    I never figured out launching a game thru HBC. I suppose you never have to. Just use the gamma launcher.

I press the A button and I get "Launching Game Language Default" message and it disappears when I let go of A. While this is going on, the wii makes this clicking noise like the lens in moving around and trying to read, I don't know. The blue light of the wii drive lights up every few seconds also. When I press B button a couple of times I get rebooting with hooks but it never reboots just stays black and no noise at all from the wii. At this stage, when I press any button on the wiimote the lights flash but cut right back off. So I have no choice but to hold the power button to cut the wii off. Is there anyway to fix this?

    OKAY AFTER STARING AT THE SCREEN TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS SAID, I GOT IT. IT SAID DISC READ ERROR, SO IT IS A BAD BURN RIGHT? DID I BURN IT TOO FAST OR IS THE DVD JUST NOT GOOD? IT IS MAXWELL DVD-RW.

    Another note, when I try launching the backup through gecko OS i get No DVD error. I even turn on force ntsc and still get the same error.

    When I read through the tutorial, you mentioned launching backups through the HBC, how would I go about doing that?

    Starfall Issue

    OK so I'm having a weird issue when pressing B+1 to install starfall. It just says "exiting" at the top left of the screen instead of actually going to the next screen to install. I went back to Custom Wad Manager and tried the CIOS fix but that didn't help. I also tired the IOS downgrader but it runs for only a sec as I chose 3.2U but that's what I downgraded it to. Any suggestions on what i can do to get it to install?

    nvm... I'm clinging to hope. per this post somehere i see to try running IOS downgrader. Trying it now. thx


    Thx for the advise in the previous post... reloading IOS downgrader worked.
