How to install Homebrew Channel on the Wii side of the WiiU using Super Smash Bros. Brawl!

Note: An SDHC card will not work! You must have an SD card that is 2GB or less.

Start up Super Smash Bros. Brawl! and Go to the stage builder and erase all sample levels and custom levels!

Back up anything you want to save!

Make a folder on your computer and name it "private" and put it on your SD card! A Clean card is best! Download the folder from the Smash Stack Here: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Smash_Stack and put it in that folder you named "private".

Download the HackMii Installer, take out the boot.elf and put only that on the root of the SD card. Get Here: http://bootmii.org/download/

So on your SD card we have one folder named private with some stuff in it, and one boot.elf file!

Start the game and NOW insert the SD card into the Wii.
Go back to the stage builder and your .elf file will now load and the HackMii install will start.
Wait a few seconds, then press 1 and install Hombrew Channel!


After that you can creat a folder named "apps', and you can start dropping your Homebrew apps in there!

Hope this was easy to understand!
Takes about 1o minutes!

You can leave that stuff on your card but you will have to rename the boot.dol and private folder to something else, or just take those both off till your done installing this!

Dosn't work! You need a disc to install with WiiU! Super Smash Brothers Brawl works best but I hear now the Lego Indiana Jones works as well! I tryed first with the Lego with no luck but that may of been fixed! I borrowed the Smash Brothers from a friend and it worked perfect! You can rent the game I'm sure if you don't own it!

Yes Lego Indiana works well too. I figured I'd be doing a few of these so I went and bought it for 3.99 at Mega Replay xD. Done 5 so far all working good :D
