    Can anyone point me to or compose an idiot’s guide to installing the WiiMC channel? My homebrew experience is limited to installing the homebrew channel – hate to brick my wii just because it would be cool to have the channel right there.

    Just dowload http://wiimc.googlecode.com/files/WiiMC%20Channel%20Installer.zip

    Then, unzip that file – copy the “wiimc-channel-installer” folder into the “apps” folder on your SD card.

    Run Homebrew Channel and select “WiiMC Channel Installer”

    It does the rest!

    an excellent start, perhaps I should elaborate. Mine gave me the message (to the effect, can’t remember exactly) that no exploitable IOS detected, run Trucha Bug Restorer or some such. I downloader that and there are a plethora of options, dire warnings, and little helpful documentation… also got Wad Installer and some other IOS restorer… help?

    i cannot replicate that issue on my system (it just worked on mine), so i’m not sure what to do – i wonder if installing IOS202 first (if you haven’t already) would help?? – it’s in the download section of this site: http://wiimc.googlecode.com/files/IOS%20202%20Installer.zip

    … if you’re worried about bricking, one precaution you can take is to boot into bootmii and make a NAND backup – (If you have installed bootmii as boot2, go to the last icon in the menu of bootmii and select it. Then, select the icon with the arrow going TO the SD card to make the backup–this can be restored at a later time if need be)

    sorry i can’t be of more help
