    USB Loader and Homebrew application HELP PLEASE!!!!

    I posted a thread about softmodding (thanks btw for all who helped) Got it up and running successfully; was a piece of cake.

    My question now is im not sure how to add things such as the usb loader gx to the sd (i saw the tutorial, but it only shows you how to run the software once you have it on the wii, not how to place the app on the sd card and install on the wii.)

    The same also goes for homebrew apps and the emulators. I believe once they are installed i could navigate and figure how to use them, i just dont know how to place them on the sd card. Like where do the apps etc software go on the sd card?

    And i know this is probably going to be a stupid question but, i have emulators and roms from just about every video game system running on my secondary hard drive of my pc, could those same rom files be used with the emulators for the wii?

    Sorry for all the questions but i try to ask around town etc, and not to many guys entertain the thought of helping a lady with anything like this(iuno maybe they see this as a mans game). Any guidance and help would be greatly appreciated.

    When you get an application it is usually in a folder [take USB Loader for example] usbloader_gx and inside the folder are for the most part a single file that is the program, boot.dol [sometimes it has to be renamed from something like usbloader_gx.dol to boot.dol (it always has to be boot.dol)]. Then that folder gets placed in your apps folder on your SD card then ran through HBC.

    As far as emulators, i'm sure someone else will be along to help you with that as i don't use them on the Wii.

    You may also want to look into something called HomeBrew browser: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_apps/Homebrew_Browser it will allow you to "browse" a bunch of emulators, homebrew games, and utilities for the Wii.

    for starters google homebrew browser. you can put that in your apps folder and use it to download all your emulators and stuff. it is the easiest way to go about that. once you have them they can be configured to read your roms from a usb device, sd card ,or disk. the loaders if you want them to be channels are usually .wad files installed from the homebrew channel with wad manager.

    No thanks sorry my browser reset could be the weather, not sure lol it just flickered quickly. i was thinking about that homebrew browser app but ive read and heard around that it has cause alot of ppl wii to act erractic, such as screen being upside down, certain functions like the wii sports, rock band attachments etc to not work properly. My softmod was unable to have bootmii 2 so had to save in IOS so no real protection from a brick. I just i guess want to go the safest route

    yea, i never heard of that. it goes to the wiibrew server and downloads a list. then if you so desire, downloads and installs the things to your sd card you would normally have to do manually.

    Umm yea, I never heard of that either. I been using it for months and never had a problem with it. As a matter of fact I love the thing! I would suggest installing preloader/priiloader in conjuction with your BootMii IOS.
