Required Reading

You can now use the Homebrew Channel to launch Wii homebrew apps.

Note: When installing homebrew applications on your SD Card or USB drive, your folder structure should look like this:

💾 SD Card
 ┗ 📁 apps
   ┣ 📁 AppName1
   ┃ ┣ 📄 boot.dol
   ┃ ┣ 📄 meta.xml
   ┃ ┗ 📄 icon.png
   ┗ 📁 AppName2
	 ┣ 📄 boot.dol
     ┣ 📄 meta.xml
     ┗ 📄 icon.png

AppName1 and AppName2 are placeholder names. Do not nest multiple apps folders inside the apps folder itself. Do not Get confused with the apps folder inside of the wiiu folder and the apps folder on the root of the SD card.
