Wii Homebrew (56k warning)

Post by gamecube6 » Wed Sep 03, 2008 6:09 pm

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to see how many people got homebrew working on their wii's. I had to run around for 6 hours to get mine working. Using the twilight hack and the homebrew channel, I have come to a conclusion.

It's the Easiest Thing Ever.


If ANYONE has not loaded homebrew and has a spare SD card, DO IT NOW! It's so easy and so useful.

This is the icon for the homebrew channel.
Image

This is some of the homebrew I have.
Image

I had to load DVDx on the wii, which was the easy part. This is the mplayer, the media player that runs DVDs.
Image

DVD's? On the Wii? BLASPHEMY!
Image

SNES9X GX, wii emulator.
Image

Super Mario World runs fine.
Image

Bonus points if you can name this hack.
Image

And that's all! Post any interesting apps you got to work on the wii, and if no one has run this (which I doubt), I'll post a tutorial.[/b]

Edit by admin: This kind of stuff does not belong in Forum 42. It belongs in the next-gen forum. Moving. I'm getting tired of this... -bic

I also have the homebrew channel (it does not load properly all dols, anyway it is usefull and easy to use), I know there are some risk from the nintendo updates, anyway who cares, I want to get an usefull wii, not a bored system. so I also burned some dols at dvd´s, actually having wiikey with latest update, I saw the media player for wii at your pics, It seems usefull,I tried the mfe-media player based linux for gc, that I has been used for a long time. but definitly watch comercial dvds on a wii seems prelly cool.
glad to find other homebrew users :lol:

I believe that the only hack that nerfed the homebrew scene was the time they "updated your mii's" (AKA nerfed the twilight hack). It doesn't uninstall the channel, and it's been hacked around.

Yes, the use of commercial DVDs is great. 8)

I've been following the Homebrew channel since its beta, but haven't had a chance to install it because I don't have a copy of the wii version of Twilight Princess. :(

I think it was only a matter of days that it took them to work around the patch.

Well that's the problem, it took me so long to get a Wii that I broke down and bought TP for the Gamecube. spectacular game, indeed. I've probably gotten 100 hours of play on it.

I was going to yell at you for that, but then I realized that there was no fault in that. So sad.

Hey, get the cheesy sword attachment! It's absolutely essential and will bring a whole new world of immersion!

Yeah. Totally stupid. I followed the wii since early "revolution" days. I got psyched about DVD drive. but apparently it was just a DVD drive, not a DVD player :cry: .

You only need it for 5 minutes, I suggest borrowing it. but yeah, renting is a good idea.
