After the HBC is installed on your Wii, delete everything on the card."
Heh, HBC will not install in the first place so how can I even down grade? Also if somehow HBC did install then I would not need to downgrade, in theory anyway. I would only assume that you see my point. You told me I need to downgrade to install HBC, this says I need to install HBC in order to downgrade.....
Thanks again so much for your time and help.

You are going to need to get hold of a copy of Zelda (backup or real). If its a brand new Wii, I expect you have 3.3 but you may have 3.4, go into Wii Settings and it should tell you in the top right, either 3.3e or 3.4e.
You then need to download the relevant save game from this page: The Homebrew Channel depending on if its 3.3 or 3.4 and perform the twilight hack and HBC install
Yes it is 3.4E.

I have the homebrew iso burned already so when exactly at what point do I use this? After I do the Zelda trick is it as simple as putting in the homebrew DVD and somehow it wont give me an error anymore like it did before?
Heh, with the luck I am having I just hope that the Zelda CD Will work in the 1st place. It might just give me the same error that all these other games are giving me.
Without that working correct I wont be able to do anything.

Wow, are you retarded or something? It's really not that complicated...
1. YOU CAN ONLY USE THE ISO TO INSTALL HBC IF YOUR WII VERSION IS 3.2 OR BELOW, OTHERWISE YOU HAVE TO USE THE TWILIGHT HACK.
2. So since you're on 3.4, you need to use the twilight hack, and that CD you burned with the Homebrew Channel thing is useless.
3. Get Zelda, Get the Twilight Hack, Put twilight hack (its a hacked save file for zelda) on an SD card, and then copy it onto your wii. Start up Zelda, talk to the guy, Homebrew Channel will start installing.
4. Once Homebrew Channel is installed, THEN you can use it to downgrade to 3.2, and install all the IOS's that you need. Then from here on you can just burn ISO onto DVD and play right away after running it through brick blocker, like the procedure you mentioned.
No need to be rude. As you can clearly see these questions are a result of multiple suggestions that came to hault by another unknown factor. Then after that another suggestion was made in which lead to another unknown factor. If the very 1st persons reply would of been "It depends on what firmware you have for the simple action of just burning the ISO and hitting play. If you have version 3.3 or 3.4 you will need to do the Zelda trick in order to install homebrew and use homebrew to downgrade"

I have owned it now for around 1.5 weeks. I can sit on the wow forums all day and theory craft and be a jerk but I don't because it is a waste of my time. You come in at the last moment after everything has been laid out and make a short summary of the now concluded problem and solution and then call me retarted? Just because I have not been down this path like you guys have before?
I do however thank you for drawing your conclusion after taking the time in reading all of these post and typing out the much concluded answer to this problem I am having. It is so much easier when it is graphed out like that.
Thanks again everybody.
generally, people mention firmware, if i dont see it mentioned, i assume its 3.2 simply because, its a important factor, and i assumed you atleast cared enough to give searching a try, maybe i shouldnt do that, but i like living in a dream world, where people actually give some effort befor asking =\

in reality youre both at fault, if u want to get into it, you should always go with your best foot foward, and give all teh info you can, usually whats not important is the anwser
if u keep it up i will take action
