sorry, i had a band rehearsal tonight that i forgot about.  

well, here we go.

1.  you MUST HAVE A COPY OF LEGEND OF ZELDA TP, AND AN SD CARD!

2.  download  the hacked game save file from here.

3. copy your zelda save onto ur sd card.

4. replace the data.bin of the zelda save with the hacked one.  to know which hacked one to use, use this table

the directory for the zelda data.bin should be on your sd card something like /private/wii/title/RZDx/ (X being your region)

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

(dont forget to rename the hacked save to data.bin!)

5. download a copy of GC linux (i wont post a link because it technically has some legality issues associated with it.)

6. convert the GC linux file from a gamecube format .dol to a wii format .elf using a toll that can be found here with instructions.  http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=93475

7. rename the file to boot.elf and place it into the root directory of your SD card.

8. copy the hacked save over to your wii and delete your old zelda file.

9. run zelda, load the only save file, and talk to the dude standing in front of you!

Oh wow. Sounds cool, but does it really install Linux on your Wii? And does it work fully? If it does, how much space does it take?
Pull something stupid like that with your sig again and you lose it forever.

it doesnt install it per say, more it runs a build of it designed for the gamecube on the wii.  sadly it sucks as of now (no usb keyboard support lol or even support for wiimotes)  this mod is VERY new, and has literally no software developed for it yet.  Does it fully work? yes you can get anything done that you want using only  a gamecube controller (btw there are gamcube controller slot keyboards that are supported by this as of now)  and it takes up no space because it runs it entirely from the SD card.
