    Cool Home brew says no ISO so will not update ?

    I purchased used wii with home brew and wonokoko loader already installed on 4.00
    finally found out how to load home brew using SD card and it tells me upgrade available but after download
    tells me it cannot install lack of ISO , whatever that is !
    if i download one to SD card how and where do i put it to get it into homebrew?
    I have ordered a mod chip from this site for myother 4.2 but will be installing soft mod on that too
    just learng on the old one
    I am still trying master the use of SD cards
    seems any thing i transfer from wii shows up on wii menue but every thing i tranfer from PC will not showup on wii SD menu ? this is all on the 4.00 not tried any thing on the 4.2
    so any detailed help will be appreciated

    It is not ISO.It's IOS.Two very different things.
    Now,your error means that Homebrew Channel has no IOS to work with.And he needs patched ios 36 or 38.


    So you need to download this:

    Free File Hosting. SharingMatrix.com file hosting and storage.

    -Now create folder called "apps" on the root of an as card(sd/apps)
    -Now put cIOS38r17-Installer in apps folder
    -After that,copy IOS38-64-v3867.wad to a root of an sd card(sd/IOS38-64-v3867.wad)
    -Now launch homebrew and run Cios rev 17 installer
    -Select Wad Installation and install it

    But before all this,tell me did u install Homebrew Channel?Do you have it at Wii Menu?Otherwise,how the neck are u launching Homebrew?

    I'd say that you should do everything again, install hbc etc (not sure if you even had it installed..?), just to make sure that you have everything needed. you would also learn basics from it.
    Just follow the guide depending on your system menu version.

    Thank you Home Brew was already installed
    the Ios thing worked and home brew updated if I want to use a save game from the SD card
    do I use home brew or should it just load from SD card to wii as before ?
    is there a manual with this thing ?
    Thanks again for your help

    There is an application called Savegame Manager - Savegame Extractor + Savegame Installer that supports wiimote:

    http://wiibrew.org/w/images/c/cf/Sav...nager-v1.0.zip

    Place your games in folder "wiisaves" on the root of an SD card and run application.Sellect to install saves , choose them and install them.

    WARNINGon't use saves from untrusted source!You may BRICK!
    This homebrew makes permanent changes to your Wii's flash memory (NAND) and should be used with caution!

    every thing that you put on the sd card will not show up on the wii menu....certain applications will show up in homebrew and those programs are the ones u put in the apps folder on your sd card.....update only through wad manager thats one of the programs that will be in your apps folder on your sd card and will show up in the homebrew channel
    Dont 4get to click the thanks button

    I will definatly upgrade thru wad manager next timeHey,I didn't understand what you said,but ok now i do(it is still not 100% clear)Lets start:

    If you want to have homebrew application to be loaded from homebrew channel you need to have apps folder on the ROOT of an SD card or USB HD and an application in that folder that has it's own folder: sd/apps/wadmanager/boot.dol or usb/apps/wadmanager/boot.dol.
    But what actually do u want?Which "save" and to DO WHAT WITH IT?Is that "game save"?

    But how exactly you want to uptade homebrew via wadmanager?That's impossible.Wad Manager is there to install and remove WADS!

    Realy confused now

    So there goeso not update thru evil N!You can download waninkokos firmware updater to update to 4.1 but u dont need to and u will possibly lose ur much of homebrew possibilities!
    And remember:INSTALL PATCHED IOS 60 FIRST OR U WILL BRICK!

    P.S:Better don't mess with your wii if u don't have kniwledge LOL

    CHEERS
