    Homebrew not loading DOP-MII ?

    Ok I have the Homebrew Channel installed and on my main menu as a channel... downloaded latest DOP-MII so that I can start the process of eventually installing USB Installer to play back up games off of external HD. When I put my SD card into the WII and then open the homebrew channel I got nothing? I installed the HBC with the Lego Indiana Jones PWN method, what am I forgetting to do here?

    Sorry for what is likely a TOTALLY rookie question.

    File structure for dopmii should be root:\apps\dopmii\boot.dol

    Make sure you've selected sd card for use and not usb device in HBC by pressing 2 and selecting SD Card.

    Ithian thank you for your reply. So do I need to MAKE a folder on my SD card that is titled ROOT? Currently my SD card has Boot.elf, installer log, bootmii & Private folder

    It looks as though my SD card is selected on HBC

    Root stands for the root directory of your card. When viewing the SD card's contents through Windows you are looking at "root." In that root directory create a folder called 'apps'. HBC reads applications from that folder.

    sd:\apps\somefolder\boot.dol

    Actually I used your file structure and was able to get into the menu... now I am installing V14.5 for Homebrew Dop-Mii. Just need to find the steps for this now.

    No, "root" means the root of your SD card. It's the place where boot.elf, installer.log, bootmii, and private are located. You need to make an "apps" folder, then a "Dopmii" folder inside that.
