    Since I like hbl2hbc so much, I made a forwarder channel for it. Many thanks to @FIX94 for making hbl2hbc.

    Here is a link to the original app -

    So, this is just an app for the Wii u menu that when you open it, it automatically starts up the vwii homebrew channel?

    His newest version has a config.txt file that you can set what it loads.

    Also, you can easily change the icon and splash screen of this forwarder, just change the ones in the meta folder of the forwarder app. Since the default is the HBC, I used those icons.

    I made some icons for USB-Loader GX.
    Just replace the tgas and meta.xml via ftpiiu here:
    /usr/title/00050000/13374843/meta

    Hi,
    Thanks for this awsome package. One question though.

    Thanks in advance

    You set the config to the title id of the usb loader gx fowarder
    I can't remember the title ID but you should set it something like
    XXXX = USB Loader GX
    with XXXX being the fowarder's title id
