Tried opening the home brew channel?



Ive opened it mate channel works i just cant get any emulators onto it

You need to download some emulators and put them on the apps folder of your SD card. I don't know if any Wii emulators.

It will probably be easier to install the homebrew browser and get the emulators from that

​Format the sd to fat 32, or try another sd card.

Actually Ill try that link you gave me it looks different as when I searched for that there were options your link downloads it automatically Do I just put that whole folder in the root of my sd or just certain files?

​Make sure you have an app folder, the main app goes in there, otherwise it won't read it in home brew channel. I've tried snex9x and an unknown genesis emulator. Both work in a fat 32 formatted micro sd, 16gb using a micro sd to sd card reader.

I may also be screwing up the part where it says create the /apps directory on your sd. Im not too sure what a directory is lol

​It's simple really, create a folder and name it apps. Put all emulators into that folder. Not into the root of the sd.

​Cool, if you have a micro sd card, insert it into an android device and compile the files that way, wii uses the same file format. If you're using an sd card use a pc.

​Try this :
In /apps/homebrew_browser, just edit settings.xml with notepad and change "settings_server" from 0 to 1.
