Using this convenient utility, you can save and install homebrew titles on Wii. Moreover, you may choose to see detailed information in regards to file size.
Homebrew Browser is a special program for Windows that simplifies the process of downloading homebrew applications directly to your Wii console. Basically, it eliminates the need for saving files on a computer and manually transferring them to your SD card.
First of all, you need to create an apps folder on the root of your storage device. Then you can copy the Homebrew Browser directory to the aforementioned location. It is important to ensure that the write lock switch on your SD card is in the off position. Now you can launch the Homebrew Channel.
You also have an alternative option. It is possible to load boot.dol using wiiload.exe, and potentially other similar methods. The Homebrew Browser will prompt you to automatically download and install the latest version to your SD card. To install custom OSs, you may try a software called Pimp My Wii.
The program communicates with the central server to retrieve a list of available homebrew applications. This catalog includes the names, sizes of image and boot files, and indicates whether it is a dol or elf item. It also displays any other necessary data associated with the apps.
When you choose to install a game, the utility fetches the ZIP file and downloads the icon from the server. Subsequently, it extracts the archive and removes the container. During an update of an application, the tool will replace pre existing files associated with the homebrew title.
