Well there is your problem. You need the right version of the "Twilight Hack" game save from the Homebrew Channel website (the one for your region) and Twilight Princess. See, it relies on a hacked game save that causes a buffer overflow on Epona's name and causes the game to load code from boot.elf (or boot.dol) in the root of your SD card. In your case I assume you put FCEUltra GX. You can't just take any game save from the internet and expect it to magically work, you need the...'specially crafted' game save from their website.

And no, there is no other way. If you were to rent Twilight Princess, then you could use it to install the Homebrew Channel, but initially the only way to run homebrew is Twilight Princess.
Just can't wait to bomb some Dodongos.
