Wii Homebrew Guide
by wiisixtyfour

This guide is for installing and using the Homebrew Channel on your Wii. There are many other guides out there, but I assure you my guide is all you need to run homebrew.

Certain sites are selling guides or "Wii Homebrew Unlocks" and bundle software with them. These sites typically claim to offer many features for your Wii, while in reality they just provide a collection of freely available software and information, often illegally. These sites are SCAMS; you never have to pay for this information. See also: HackMii Blog post


The Homebrew Channel is a self-updating homebrew application loader by Team Twiizers which allows users to load homebrew applications without having to run an exploit every time. Once installed, users can access the channel from the Wii System Menu just like any other Wii channel. It can launch homebrew applications from an SD or SDHC card or via USB. You can install the Homebrew Channel as part of the HackMii Installer.


In order to install the Homebrew Channel you need to run an exploit. See "Exploits" below.

Note: If you do not know your System Menu version, go to Wii Options, then System Settings and in the upper-righthand corner it will show your version. (The letter stands for your region; U=USA [North America], E=Eur/Aus [PAL regions], J=Japan, K=Korea)
