Setting Up Wii Homebrew

Post by sulsull on Tue Nov 11, 2008 7:35 am

Ok First off I have to make a few notes first i'm trying my hardest to get screen shots for this so at the bottom i will make a change log. 2nd Me nor any homebrew developer is in fault for using an application and it bricking your wii. Now to the Guide

Ok first off people have been asking me what homebrew is so time to quote wikipedia beacuse they have an awesome article on it (well wiibrew contributes to wikipedia)

"Homebrew is a term frequently applied to video games produced by consumers to target proprietary hardware platforms not typically user-programmable or that use proprietary storage methods. This might include games developed with official development kits, such as Net Yaroze or Linux for PlayStation 2. Some more frequently used labels, such as freeware, are often applied as well. A popular type of homebrew game is the fangame. In Japan, these games are usually called "Dōjin soft", the legality of which depends on what the software does."
Couldn't of said it any better

Now if you want to see the article click here

Ok another note that you click on the images to make them bigger
Now to the tutorial

What You Will Need:

A SD card 256 megabits or higher (there is compatibly issues SDHC cards in some applications)



A Wii (it helps for it to be connected to the internet so your can get homebrew through the Homebrew Browser)


A Computer

The Internet

A Copy of Legend Of Zelda Twilight Princess Wii Version


1. Download This .exe . (if you on a mac wait till version 1.4 of this post)
The Installer

2. Open this application and click next

3. Now click Change and Point this to your sd card then click next (make sure you put it in no other directories)

4. Now in here click the region that your wii is (Europe America or Japan) once clicked press next

5. Here is where you make sure that this is you sd card if so press next

6. It should put some files on your sd card and give you video on how to do the rest just skip the video and click next

7. Just hit Next again and Finish

8.Now take you sd card put it in your wii Then Click The Wii icon

9. Then Press Data Management, Save Data, Wii.

10. Now Delete your old save game of Legend Of Zelda Twilight Princess and click the Sd Card button

11.Now On the SD card Screen click the Twilight Hack Icon, and press copy.

12 Now Take Your Legend Of Zelda Disk and look at the rim off the disk You Should see -0 USA, -2 USA or Jpn -0 Remember what yours was and start up the game

13.At the Save Selection Screen either press TwilightHack0 if your disc had the 0 Usa at the end or press TwighlightHack2 if it had USA -2 at the end on your disc

14 then start up the file and either talk to the guy in front of you or walk behind you and this should bring some code.

15. When You Get to screen with multiple colored text Just Read what it says and press 1 for all the pages.

16 now when you wii restarts you should see a new channel called the Homerew Channel.

17. open it as you would any other application and you can see one application the home brew browser here is where you get all of your applications

Q&A

Q. What is the possiblities or stuff that has happend in homebrew
A. Ok We have got alot accomplished like linux, backup loader for wii games, emulators (nes, snes,gba,sega genesis), and a dvd player and a homebrew downloader (this is the only app when you open the homebrew channel)

Q. How did you get into homebrew
A. I saw a tutorial on how to set up the original twilight hack (you needed a usb
gecko for it)and waited for the second release which added sd support

Q. What's a Usb Gecko
A. ok back in the gamecube homebrew era there was two ways to get homebrew
onto your gamecube a usb gecko which connected to you computer and came
with some software that you loaded applications with. Or a Sd Gecko which is
basicly makes it so you could put sd cards in your gamecube memory card slots

Q.What is illegal in doing this
A.Ok this where the fun ends first with your warranty.This technically breaks you warrenty (well they took back flashed ds) So use with caution. 2nd if you don't own the game it is technically illegal to use the homebrew to emulate it (like an nes emulator the backup loader)(well except for direct ports with no emulator to open because those usally the developer is not there anymore).



Q. What's this hbb and hbc crap that i hear about
A.There both acronyms Hbb stands for Homebrew Browser and Hbc Stands for Homebrew Channel


Q. where can i learn more
A. Here is probably the most popular website for homebrew
this site tells you alternatives to updating you wii and has news events and new
homebrew apps

Q. Why Do you have to make a new part of the guide for macs, linux, and for older versions of windows
A.In the second part of the walkthrough i'll be showing you how to do what this installer does for you automaticly. So that means that i just have to make the parts on the computer again. So the part on the wii will be exactly the same and there will be no differnce on the wii except the installer gives you (Hbb



Things Working on
1. an Expanded FAQ (i'm open to questions)
2. Some Pictures for the tough parts (not many) and to make it more intresting
3.A guide on doing all this on a mac (this is my least priority even though i'm a heavy mac user)
4. Editing Grammer and Spelling
5. Show you how to install applications through the Homebrew Browser and how to put applications on manually



Change Log

1.0 Rough Draft Didn't add the Long way yet or Pictures
1.0.1 Started a FAQ
1.0.2 Made the stuff that i am working on
1.0.3 Made So dedications
1.1 Started With 1 image will try to do more (it takes a while to fid the pictures crop
them and upload them so cut me some slack)
1.1.1 Put more pictures in (that's going to be the new thing for a while)
1.1.2 Put 5 more pictures in i'm getting to the end
People i need to thank
Norikukun For getting into Fourms again
Gimp For help with resizing and crap
Nintendo For Making some of the best counsels
The Twizer Team For Making The Twilight Hack and HBC

What all can you do with Homebrew and why is it illegal? You may want to enclude an FAQ on this.

I don't want to risk reaking the warrenty on my Wii and it sounds like a lot. I'll just buy the game, sorry.

Well i've been working on screeshot's but i've just been waiting till today because of the coding compition

Wait in your guide you can 250 so if i add pictures to another 15 (max) credit points is that worth the effort also making the mac section would be worth 10 (max). umm ok thats the two harder more time consuming needed of this guide so i'll gladly skip out on them
