The HomebrewFilter celebrates it's debut on vWii! --=== The HomebrewFilter ===-- == About == The HomebrewFilter is an drop-in replacement for the Homebrew Channel - it allows Homebrew applications to be loaded and sorted, among other more outstanding opportunities. Compared to the Homebrew Channel, the HomebrewFilter features the following additional functionality (Wii version has several more): load Homebrew from SD, USB or both load Homebrew from FAT, NTFS or EXT2/3/4 formatted devices categorize Homebrew (without the need to change directories) download additional content directly from within The HomebrewFilter (Fonts, Themes, Languages) on-the-fly updates via network connectivity child-lock mode screen adjustment options edit meta.xml from within the HomebrewFilter debugging WiFi and SD-Card (SD//config/HBF/debug.txt) === Installation === Run the Installer from any Loader (HBC, whatever). Requirements: HW_AHBPROT access or IOS236. For the standalone Version install the Forwarder using a WAD Manager and place the app-folder in SD/USB:/apps/ === Flavours === Starting with rev42 the HBF comes in 4 flavours: Wii Installer: installs the fullchannel for Wii (Path: /apps/HomebrewFilter/) Wii Standalone: standalone boot.dol with forwarderchannel for Wii (Path: /apps/HomebrewFilter.Standalone/) vWii Installer: installs fullchannel for vWii (Path: /apps/HomebrewFilter.vWii/) vWii Standalone: standalone boot.dol with forwarderchannel for vWii (Path: /apps/HomebrewFilter.vWii.Standalone/) All versions are updatable via online-update. Don't change paths - will result in non-working updates/forwarders. Don't install vWii version on Wii and vice versa (channels won't load else). === ChangeLog === Code: //rev44: - built against libruntimeiospatch 1.5.1 - apply XFLAGS (flag specifying build-type (Wii/vWii, installer/forwarder) to CXXFLAGS not just CFLAGS * this will speed up HBF on vWii. x only the first time you choose an application will delay 1 or 2 seconds (as we are scanning all available IOSes, for you to choose a different IOS to start an application with, before it always delayed) x same for external launchers menu x no more delay when opening the settings * this will fix upgrading HBF via network on vWii. x previously it was accidently downloading the Wii version * this will fix upgrading standalone HBF via network. x previously it was accidently downloading the installer * ... yeah, one variable, huge impact ... - move creation of distribution files into dist/ - bump channel version to 44 (accidently skipped for 43) === Download === License: GNU GPL v2 Installer Wii: http://www.nanolx.org/hbf/Installer/HomebrewFilter-rev44.tar.bz2 Standalone + Forwarder Wii: http://www.nanolx.org/hbf/HomebrewFilter-Standalone-rev44.tar.bz2 Installer vWi: http://www.nanolx.org/hbf/Installer.vwii/HomebrewFilter-vWii-rev44.tar.bz2 Standalone +Forwarder vWii: http://www.nanolx.org/hbf/HomebrewFilter-vWii-Standalone-rev44.tar.bz2 GIT-Repository: https://github.com/Nanolx/homebrewfilter suggestions, comments, patches welcome.
