    I recommend you just update to 4.0 firmware and go from there.

  5. hi do you know how to fix the #002 error message im getting it on one or two backus - excellent mod by the way

    thankks

    neil

    ReplyDelete
  6. when I first modded mine and tried to run the backup the disk had the wrong strings and the game looked like a really old tv trying to find a channel. All fuzzy.

    First try slowing the write speed as much as possible when you burn the disk.
    Next, if you own the game I read that it is legal to download a copy off the internet if the disk isn't working.
    If you come from the Americas, download a NTSC disk. If you come from European countries, download a PAL disk.

    Try that to get it working first and if it doesn't, post again and I'll try to fix your problem.

  20. you're welcome. A lot of the errors won't effect you either. There are fixes for some of them but for the most part it's all good

    ReplyDelete
  21. Just about to try this. When I go to format my SD card it only gives me the options FAT(default),FAT 32,NTFS or exFAT. Is one of these options the one I need or do I have to do something else. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  22. Fat(default) is the correct way to do it.

  29. Surfing on the web, I discover that firmware v.4.1E is not compatible with a lot of software.

    Do you think that buby78 is compatible with my console?

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think it would work. If not i would try one of the other many programs on that thread.

    The best way to work things out is by trial and error. If it doesn't work, just delete the program.

  31. How can I install a WAD file?
    Thanks a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  32. if I remember correctly,
    Plug in your sd card with everything on it from the package + the WAD file

    Go to the homebrew app (this should be installed already)

    In homebrew run "wadmanager"

    find the WAD file and install it from there.


    If this didn't help ask again with the problems you are having

    You're very welcome btw

  33. hi,
    i have firmware below 3.4 but there are no 3.4 or 4.0 folder in the mirror link there is only one folder called sd root

    ReplyDelete
  34. hi'
    i have installled everything fine i was just wondering what files could i delete from my sd card

    ReplyDelete
  35. everytime i click on the SD card icon my wii freezes

    ReplyDelete
  36. the sd root folder is all you need for any firmware below 4.0


    once you finish installing everything I would leave all of this stuff on the st card because it includes programs you need to install extra stuff. it's only 60 mb anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  37. whenever i access the sd card it always freezes

    ReplyDelete
  38. Try accessing the sd card through the menu instead of the icon on the home screen

    ReplyDelete
  39. when i do that it comes up with something about boot.dol

    ReplyDelete
  40. That's good. Load boot.dol and you will come up with a program that this tutorial takes you through to install homebrew

    ReplyDelete
  41. i have already done the homebrew and the wads i just want to put a save file on my sd card

    ReplyDelete
  42. you can just copy all the contents of the sd card to your computer if you want cause unless you want to install something else like that, you don't need the files. This'll open up the space for the savegame.

    ReplyDelete
  43. 2) "Download and extract the above file. It will extract to a SoftmodPack folder. There are 2 folders inside this folder. The 3.4 folder is for users with 3.4 or below firmware. The 4.0 folder is for users that have 4.0 firmware."

    I've downloaded the file, extracted it and when I open it, I only get 1 file called "SD Root" and all the contents inside that folder. I have wii firmware 3.1u if that helps.

    ReplyDelete
  44. OK, I'm sorry about all the confusion. I have updated the link because the first one was broken and SD Root folder in this updated link should cover both 3.4 and 4.0 firmware.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I've used the new link, which covers the 4.0 AND THE 3.4 FIRMWARE. upon inserting the sd card at the right time, i do not get the option to load/boot.

    I only have three folders and nothing else in my SD card root.

    my wii is french and 3.4E.

    Is there a way to update it to 4.0 without renting a game that has the update on it, and without wifi? The only way I know for now is to hack the wii, put in mario galaxy, which will put 4.0 on it, and then hack it again.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    ReplyDelete
  46. The only way that I know how to updated it is through the internet. Sorry about that part.

    Since nothing is popping up on your wii I will upload a zip file of everything I have on my sd card.
    Here are the contents:
    -----The original files found in the softmodpack
    -----The usbloader installation files
    -----boot.dol (this is what should have popped up)


    I will update this momentarily.

    ReplyDelete
  47. okay here it is:
    http://www.4shared.com/file/126102669/a835feaa/Unzip_everything_to_the_sdcard_root.html

    The readme text might not apply to you so I wouldn't bother with it for now.

    Delete the pack that you already have on the sd card and just copy this to it. Try again with the tutorial and please leave a comment saying how this worked out.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm downloading as we speak. Or write.

    Before I continue' and post my results, let me inquire: do your SD card files also apply for 4.1?

    ReplyDelete
  49. To tell you the truth, I don't know if they would work on 4.1.

    Since I haven't a wii with that firmware, I never downloaded the 4.1 files from the site.

    If you want, I can update the sd card file so that it will work with all versions so far.

    ReplyDelete
  50. ok, so the load/boot.lod showed up, I see a black screen and all, but the instructions are confusing for me because when I need to choose which file to start from the SD card, I don't know which one to choose!

    I've tried almost every option and I still don't have the homebrew channel.

    any hints?

    ReplyDelete
  51. try to use the 4.0 instructions even though your wii isn't a 4.0.

    Based on the knowledge I've gathered it should still work for the other firmwares below it.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hi, i am in the same situation as Milan, running on 3.4. So far i have tried the 4.0 tutorial that you have suggested and i am stuck on the downgrade ios35 part.

    When i press A for it to run it says "initialzing network.." then a few minutes later it failed. Quite possibly b/c my internet falied?

    So when i fixed my internet connection and tried to downgrade again it says "failed to add title, maybe you already ran this?"

    So now i do not know what to do, i cannot proceed through the tutorial.

    Maybe you could send the 3.4 files it would be a lot easier thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  53. http://www.4shared.com/file/126407311/88774335/SoftmodPack1.html

    try this if you couldn't get the original softmodpack to work

    I mixed some of the 4.0 stuff in there but try using the 3.4 tutorial first.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I downloaded the pack the you posted on August 19 and it came up with a screen that says "****** EXCEPTION OCCURRED!*********"
    and it froze my wii and I have tried it two times and have gotten the same result.
    My wii is 3.3u.

    ReplyDelete
  55. The whole message says, "******** EXCEPTION OCCURRED! ********", "FrameMemory:90000940H", "---MainInfo---", "CONTEXT:8111BA58H (ISI EXCEPTION)", "SRR0: 00000000H SRR1:1000A032H", "DSISR: 00000000H DAR: 00000000H", "---EXCEPTION_INFO_TRACE---", "-------------------------------- TRACE", "Address: BackChain LR save", and then it is 27 sets of 8 hexadecimal.

    I can post a link to picture if needed.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Sorry about that,

    The pack I posted was something I put together for my 4.0, but I put some 3.4 and under stuff in there as well. If there is any way you can upgrade your wii to 4.0 then my pack will work perfectly.
    If you can only upgade it to 4.1, that will work fine too. Just use the link I provided for 4.1 firmware wiis.

    ReplyDelete
  57. The link you provided for 4.1 firmware Wiis is dead...

    ReplyDelete
  58. EVERYONE TRY THIS LINK FOR 4.1 BECAUSE THE MAKER OF THE OTHER TUTORIAL DELETED IT!

  61. Hi, my Wii version is 3.1u and I'm trying to install Visual Boy Advance and put in some virtual console games (Super Mario Bros 3, Ocarina of Time, etc.), but the Homebrew Channel requires internet connection and my Datel Wii LAN adapter that I got 2 years ago will no longer work with my Motorola SB5101 SURFBOARD CABLE MODEM and I'm poor. I don't know what people mean by "root" of the sd card.
    Any alternatives?

    ReplyDelete
  62. When you see "root" of the sd card, we mean when you plug in your sd, click on computer, and click on the sd card. you should now be in the "root" of the sd card.
    Basically, you don't go into any subfolders.

    If you have a friend that has any new games such as mario galaxy, if you borrow and run it once, it should automatically update your wii through the disk. Updating the wii through new games should be the easiest way for you.

    This way you don't need internet connection.

  63. Hi there, my wii ver is 3.3u and im trying to install the homebrew. When ever i open the 'Softmod pack' folder, i don't see two folders named 3.4 or 4.0. What i see is a folder named 'SD Root' and in that folder there are three other folders 'apps', 'images', 'wad'. I can't find the 3.4 firmware folder and i don't know which files are to be dragged to the sd card root. So can u please guide me what to do to run the homebrew without the zelda twilight or install the backup loader channel.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Drag that whole thing to your sd card root.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I tried to drag the whole thing but still my wii doesn't recognize it. I don't see anything in the Sd Card under 'Channels'. Please hurry i can't wait to play my backedup games.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Harris,
    Try upgrading your wii to 4.0 or 4.1 and then use those tutorials. anything less than 4.0 seems to be having problems now.
    you can upgrade via a the internet:
    http://www.nintendo.com/wii/menuupdate

    The 4.0 tutorial is the easiest and it definately works because that's what I used.

  67. josh I am new to this I have installed the homebrew channel without the twlight princess Homebrew channel is there.. i done everything right...I just need to know what exactly my next step is Im confused with all this 4.0 talk..to play backups what do i do next...thanks in advance

  68. ohh and i have ver 3.4 but i dont have it connected to the internet is that going to be a problem

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hey
    Is there another channel already there that installed with homebrew, it will be called wii gator backup or something like that.

    If there isn't another channel that installed with homebrew, download this- http://www.4shared.com/file/126102669/a835feaa/Unzip_everything_to_the_sdcard_root.html
    and do this:
    -copy everything in it to the sd card
    -go to the homebrew channel
    -launch wadmanager
    -install something like wiigator.wad (it might have a different title)
    -after you install the wad, there will be a new channel called wii gator backup launcher.
    -click on this channel to play backup games!

    good luck
    if you installed homebrew already, you do not need to worry about 4.0 or anything.

    ReplyDelete
  70. thank you sooo much im going to try that now and i have seen where pal games are the best(or thats wat ppl r saying) is that wat i need to look 4? and any advice on good places to get backups i use demoid and seen piratebay had some?? thanks again

  83. the homebrew channel is only made to install other channels such as backup loader channels. you would use a backup loader channel to play a burnt dvd game. here is a good one I use with step by step instructions for the installation:

  93. The 4.0 didn't work with 4.1 so I don't think these files will work with 4.2. I'll post whatever I find on the topic.

  102. downgrade your wii firmware first. http://www.ps3news.com/Nintendo-Wii/nintendo-wii-firmware-downgrader-v1-11-now-available/
    It might not work with some games though, but if it doesn't, you can easily upgrade again

  103. I have 3.4E and http://www.4shared.com/file/126102669/a835feaa/Unzip_everything_to_the_sdcard_root.html worked perfectly...thanks.
    Just curious, what do the other files in there do?..just wanted to know from you incase they brick mine...thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  104. this is off my memory, and half of it doesn't even need to be installed, for I just copied everything I had from my SD card to a zip file so I could be sure it would work for more of you guys :D

    first of all, I added files so it would work on multiple firmwares, mine being 4.0, yours being 3.4 for instance.

    I included a usb loader (I never used this one), so you can load games off of a usb drive in the back of your wii.

    wiiGatorGamma is a loader for non-original disk games. I think installing homebrew already gave you a backup loader, but I cannot be sure. this one is the one I use

    all the IOS's and stuff (such as IOS36-64-v1042) are used in the installation, dependent upon what system version you have

    suckit.sfv as I recall is used in the installation

    wadmanager, obiously allows for additional .wad installations through the homebrew channel. This is what you click on to install extras you may have found online.

    HBC.wad would be our beloved homebrew channel

    they shouldn't brick your wii, because firmware is like an antivirus, it won't figure out what the thing you installed actually does until you update it

  105. I get the 002 error...I backed up my games to a usb hard drive...Is there a wad out there that can read off this drive to fix this 002 error...Ive found ones that fix if you backed up game onto disc, but am after one that fixes error from the usb drive...thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  107. It's 4.0, so it should work. try downloading the bannerbombs at the top of the tutorial.

    ReplyDelete
  108. yeah still freezes at the sd card, cant get to boot.dol...is yours a 4.0e?

  109. my wii is the 4.2 version and i downloaded the softmod and have the hebrew chanell but was just wondering how to get games on to my wii now

    ReplyDelete
  110. well, the point of homebrewing your wii was to allow you to play non-original copies of games. This includes backups of disks. I cannot post illegal subjects on my site so you can use your imagination. These backups are played through the gamma backup launcher channel

  111. I'm softmodding a Wii with version 3.1 on it. I wanted to know whether you recommend I upgrade it to 3.4 or higher? Or would it be better to leave it on 3.1?

    ReplyDelete
  112. If you could get it to 3.4, 4.0, or 4.1, I can assure you that many people have gotten it to work with those right on this site. I've been hearing of compatibility issues with 3.1

    I wouldn't just upgrade it to the absolute newest firmware because I have little experience with that one.

    If it makes you feel safer, try 3.1 first but I personally recommend upgrading to one of those.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Well, if that's the case, what game game upgrades to 3.4? What's the best way to upgrade to 3.4 without using a game?

    ReplyDelete
  114. I couldn't find another way to upgrade without the internet so just try installing homebrew on 3.1 first

    ReplyDelete
  115. i don't get the fisrt part:
    There are 2 folders inside this folder. The 3.4 folder is for users with 3.4 or below firmware.
    in which download???
    there are no '3.4' folder in either 'unzip everything to the sd root.zip,
    nor softmodepack.zip
    tell me plz
    i have 3.3j

    ReplyDelete
  116. one more thing sry,
    i tried the file:unzip everything to the sd root.zip.
    nothing happened.
    and i noticed the first lines,
    if the boot.dol doesn't appear, try this...
    i download the 27084_aad1f_v108.zip,
    in that zip archive, there is a private folder with lotts of subfolders.
    do i need to extract it to the root of my sd?
    if yes, do i need to format my sd card again?
    no?
    if no, it says merge private folder with private?
    i click yes or no?
    or do i delete the original private folder, andreplace it with the private folder from the 27084_aad1f_v108.zip???
    plz help
    really need homebrew

    ReplyDelete
  117. for your first question-
    - http://www.sendspace.com/file/hg1079
    - That's what was intended for you to use
    for your second question-
    - no
    - then merge the folder with private
    - click "replace" if it ever asks you to replace a file

    ReplyDelete
  118. i tried it on my wii, but theboot.elf didn't load!!!!!
    even with the 27084_aad1f_v108.zip!!

    (yoganpoke, i'm at school!!!!!!)

    otherwise i will have to go and pay to install homebrew and trust me, it's really expensive.
    about 100 usd

    ReplyDelete
  119. I can't say what to do, the only thing is to try and find a twilight princess or lego indiana jones game and upgrade with those hacked save games..

    keep trying and just mess around with the placements

    ReplyDelete
  120. what do you mean by upgrade by those hacked save games???
    you want me to upgrade my firmware version?

  121. never mind, i just got homebrew today, and backup launcher, neogamma, i got it where i bought it.(they also changed my language.)
    it costed me about 1500 rupees.(mauritius)
    that makes about 50 usd
    anyway, thx for ur gr8 tutorial

    ReplyDelete
  122. yeah, sorry about that, but I didn't know what else to say, and I never used that type of wii before.

    But thanks, now I know that you can change the language of the wii, which would have made it all work

    ReplyDelete
  123. if you want to know how to install a new language, delete the firmware completly,when you turn on the screen, there should be a message saying:
    cannot launch the wii firmware, please install the a new firmware, put in the cd homebreware( i borrowed it from a friend), and download the WIIFIRMEAREENGpack.zip/rar and extract all the files to the root of your sd card.
    there should be a few options,
    :::
    install wii firmware (dunno the version)
    install firmware + english language pack.
    then, it will automatically install the wii firmware in it's new language, + the homebrew channel.
    sorry, i don't know the links for where to get the WIIFIRMEAREENGpack.zip/rar
    i tried googling it, but no result.
    hope i helped

  126. Hello,
    I softmoded my Wii 4.2e, but I thing I missed some points. I can play backup copies of my disks but sometimes during certan games my console block completeley.
    Do you think I can update again my console to the clean 4.2e and try to soft moded again? Or this will brick my wii?
    thank you,

    ReplyDelete
  127. I don't think you can

    When your wii stops during games, it may not be the softmod job's fault.

    Try to find an update for the NeoGamma first, or install another backup loader such as wii gator gamma, this should help fix your problem.

    I was having similar problems with Mario Kart a few months back.

    Write back if this doesn't help

    ReplyDelete
  128. Thank you for the answer.
    I will try. Indeed Mario Kart is one of the games. It blocks if at the beginning of the race when you have a few images of the circuit I click a button to cancel this and start the race imediately.

    I'll be back with more news if I have.

  135. Hi,

    You have a nice blog. Now there is an easy way to unlock your WII. WII Homebrew can unlock WII within 5 minutes. You can check it out here http://myhomebreware.com/wii-homebrew.html.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Thanks, but although it may do it in 5 minutes, it costs $30 bucks, it's not free.
    This is free, and according to the real makers of the wii homebrew channel, homebrew is to be open source forever.

    ReplyDelete
  137. And once these files are downloaded, I've homebrewed my wii in about 4 minutes anyway.

    That's without the cost for shipping...

  138. I do not wrіtе a lot of геmarks,
    howeνer I lookeԁ at a few of the remarks here "Install Wii Homebrew Channel Without Zelda Twilight Hack (Includes NeoGamma and #002 fix) any wii works!".
    I do haѵe a fеw quеstionѕ for yοu if it's okay. Could it be only me or do some of these remarks come across like they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at other online sites, I'd like tο
