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: //rev47: - build against libruntimeiospatch 1.5.3 - rename "SD Gecko" to "SD Card Debug Log" in Settings - rename "Wifi Gecko" to "Wifi Debug Log" in Settings - only scan list of available IOS once per session - disable 'SD Card Gecko' by default (debug log on SD Card), because it's causing a MASSIVE slow down when opening an app's details dialog the first time in a session, when using a shitty class 2 or whatever SD Card - fixed that newly build vWii forwarder accidently was the same than the Wii forwarder - fixup BootMii (IOS) detection on Wii - fixup showing device icon for apps - add ISO0 (any version) to list of known stub IOS (it's a custom IOS installed by several old apps) - update german translation //rev46: - fix size and layout of device prompt in vWii builds - remove 'All' button from device prompt in vWii builds - re-enable 'SD Gecko' setting in vWii builds - support for Wii U Pro Controller trough FIX94's libwupc - support for Wii U Pro Controller in the installer - treat Y button on Game Cube Controller, Classic Controller and Wii U Pro Controller like 1 button on the Wii Remote - treat X button on Game Cube Controller, Classic Controller and Wii U Pro Controller like 2 button on the Wii Remote - press Z on Game Cube Controller or L Classic Controller or Wii U Pro Controller to open Settings menu - press R on Classic Controller or Wii U Pro Controller to open External Applications menu (no unused button left for Game Cube Controller) - press ZL on the Classic Controller or Wii U Pro Controller to open the device selection prompt (no unused button left for Game Cube Controller) - press ZR on the Classic Controller or Wii U Pro Controller to open the system selection prompt (no unused button left for Game Cube Controller) [only on Wii] - previously only the first controller was honoured, now all four are being connected, though only the first one of each kind (Wii Remote, Game Cube Controller or Wii U Pro Controller) can be used, each additional non-unique controller is ignored - in partition mounter replace debug_printf with xprintf - disable several DVD and Memory Card related functions in vWii - don't initialize DVD drive on start in vWii builds - allow 'SD Gecko' and 'Wifi Gecko' in parallel - update german translation //rev45: - built against libruntimeiospatch 1.5.2 - fixed loading newly downloaded HomebrewFilter from online update of standalone builds - always return 0 (not found) for bootmii on vWii - add IOS5 rev 65280 to list of stub IOS - fix Settings Editor GUI path for SD Gecko in GC MC Slot A - fix 'Exit to Wii U menu' not visible in vWii builds - hide 'SD Gecko' setting in vWii builds - various Makefile improvements - other minor or internal changes === Download === License: GNU GPL v2 Installer Wii: http://www.nanolx.org/hbf/Installer/HomebrewFilter-rev47.tar.bz2 Standalone Wii: http://www.nanolx.org/hbf/HomebrewFilter-Standalone-rev47.tar.bz2 Forwarder Wii: http://nanolx.org/hbf/DOL.st/HBF0.wad Installer vWi: http://www.nanolx.org/hbf/Installer.vwii/HomebrewFilter-vWii-rev47.tar.bz2 Standalone vWii: http://www.nanolx.org/hbf/HomebrewFilter-vWii-Standalone-rev47.tar.bz2 Forwarder vWii: http://nanolx.org/hbf/DOL.st.vwii/HBF0.vWii.wad GIT-Repository: https://github.com/Nanolx/homebrewfilter suggestions, comments, patches welcome.
