    The Twilight Hack is currently the only safe, released way to run homebrew on an unmodded Wii.

    Usage

    You will need:
    • 1x Wii
    • 1x SD card, formatted as FAT16 (There seems to be a problem with formatting an SD card as FAT 16 in OS X, try to format your card in Windows.)
    • 1x copy of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess that has been run at least once
    • 1x Computer
    • 1x Some way to read SD cards on a computer
    • (Optional) 1x or more GameCube controller
    • (Optional) 1x USBGecko
    Inside the zip archive, you will find several savegame files; you will need to choose the correct one based on your version of Zelda: Twilight Princess. The easiest way to check your version is to compare the text string which is on the inner cycle of the data surface with the ones below.


    Different Versions Region Inner circle text File
    Europe/Australia RVL-RZDP-0A-0 JPN rzdp0.bin
    Asia RVL-RZDJ-0A-0 JPN rzdj0.bin
    America RVL-RZDE-0A-0 JPN rzde0.bin
    America RVL-RZDE-0A-0 USA rzde0.bin
    America RVL-RZDE-0A-2 USA rzde2.bin
    • Format your SD card to FAT16 (In Windows it's called just "FAT") if it is not already.
      Note: if you get an error like "FAT_ReadFile(boot.elf) failed with error -1" you might want to try formatting your SD card with this Official SD Card Format Tool
    • If it does not already exist, make a directory called "/private/wii/title/RZDx/" on your SD card; replace "RZDx" with RZDE, RZDP or RZDJ as appropriate.
      Copy the above file into that directory, renaming it as "data.bin".
    • Next, take your homebrew Wii executable, and save it in the root directory of your SD card as "boot.elf".
    • Now, put the SD card into your Wii and turn it on. Go into Wii Options --> Data Management --> Save Data --> Wii.
      Find your Zelda save, click on it, and click "Erase", and click Yes.
      Now, go into SD card, and select the "Twilight Hack" save (the icon says "Wiibrew Loader"). Click copy, and yes. Now, go back out of that menu.
    • Insert Zelda, and run the game. Load file A, and either walk backwards, or talk to the guy that's standing in front of you.
    From this you can use all/most of the homebrew that is out already! :D

    Does this "hack" harm the wii or your computer in any way?

    No, I can personally attone to the fact that this is perfect in every sense of the word. I have never had any problems and you get free games.
