    Homebrew confusion

    Hello, I am new to the world of homebrew, and by new I mean not born yet.
    And I tried to load homebrew on my wii, and it did not work.
    Can some one that is live explain to me how to do it?
    I do not understand some of the more technical terms.
    I have a wii, an SD card-I do not know much about how to use it- and internet, so I should be able to do it right?
    well I would love some explanation, or an easy to follow link.
    Thank you.

    Look for the 4.2 guide and it will help you get Homebrew on your machine. You will need to download the first set of .rar files, extract them, copy them without the folder (just the files) to your SD card. Then read the instructions. I'm having trouble with what comes after that, which I will address in another thread.

    to be honest, that made no sense to me.
    But while i was waiting i looked around a figured it out, sorta.
    I have it on but the only block on my SD card is a "?" and it says i cant load it.
    Is there a reason?

    well when i look in the SD card menu on my wii, the first little square has a "?" and i click it and, and click "start" and my wii says "this can not be launched on the system" or something. and when i look in the channels data page in the SD section, it has the samething.

    well did u install DVDx?someone said it sopposed to be like a hidden channel and show the "?". But did u even read/follow a guide? it seems like u have no clue about it.
    Edit:err my bad, even if u did it would not be on sd card, maybe its just corrupted data. btw what were u duing is Sd card menu? u wont find any homebrew apps there.

    I did have no idea what i was doing.
    But i was following the guide on wiibrew.org, and after i got the question mark in the SD data in the wii settings area, i looked in the sd card menu to see if it was working there, thats why.
