    Actually, IDK. Should I make a poll? Hmmm, actually I choose each one by a few criteria. How much I like the app, how much of a demand there is for an app to be installed, and how quickly I can do it. U-Paint was done first, cause it's mine, and it was my test port to rpx. Then I ported Flappy Bird, because I love @rw-r-r_0644 's port. Then I did Loadiine Forwarder, because so many people wanted a Loadiine channel, and the HBL2HBC Forwarder came from that too, because I couldn't get the porting down correctly, so I made it a forwarder as well. And then I did the WUP Installer, so people could have a safe alternative to System Config Tool. Logically, FTPiiU sounds as good as any, but with Mocha, don't we have a built-in wup server anyway? I really don't know. Maybe I can port @Dylon99 's Clock app and make a channel. :D

    We have HIDtoVPAD, SDCafiine (needs to be updated with libiosuhax) and retroarch (this last one I think we should wait for the standalone app, its a matter of time).

    Once I figure out which version of Ast-U-Roids is the most up to date, I have code scattered everywhere on my PC, I may do that one too. I have to make sure it's my original OSScreen version that was released, not the GX2 port I was working on, because that isn't optimized, and actually runs a little slower, because of the way I was trying to do it. OSScreen 4 Life!!! :D

    But I know there are much more deserving apps that are more useful to people, and I get bored with my projects pretty quickly.

    Let me see if I can help you out porting into rpx on the other homebrews. Everything I need to know is in the @Maschell's template, right?

    Most of it. But there are a few exceptions, like WUP Installer GX2, I had to change some functions, because there were errors in wut, that wouldn't show up as errors in the elf version. Some are easy fixes, like casting, but some require a little bit of extra programming.

    Does all of the channels need the signature patch before we can run them ? Is there a way to patch them to be launched as system title ?(without cfw)

    Out of topic : I think the wii u need a nice media player like vlc. On the wii there was a lot of good ones like WiiMC or showtime on ps3 so we could play almost any video format with subs.

    No you would always need a CFW as an unpatched/vanilla system would only allow games or apps with legal tickets and you can't create a ticket without sigpatches right now that tricks the Wii U into thinking it's legal. Otherwise no one would have to buy a DS game in the eShop for Haxchi.

    I've read somewhere here in the forum that someone is already working on a media player.
    I think it was "just" a simple player like VLC and not a media center like KODI but it is in work so just wait patiently. :) But you can already use PLEX through the Internet Browser if that pleases you.

    A new version of U-Paint will be coming out soon(TM). I fixed the saving problem, and there may be one or two more additions to it as well.

    Can forwarder channels be made to forward from the Wii U menu to homebrew from the vWii? I'd really like to be able to launch a channel on my Wii U and go directly to something like the USBLoader GX (this whole process can eliminate the need to use a Wiimote entirely on the Wii U if you're looking to play gamecube games). I would think this is possible considering we have a channel that goes directly to the vWii homebrew channel. At worst,maybe it can't forward vWii homebrew from there, but if we can forward to the Homebrew Channel, then at the very least we should be able to forward to another installed vWii channel, like again if we instead installed USBLoader GX as a vWii channel.

    This can forward to anything that you can install as a channel, even if it's just a forwarder channel in vWii mode.
    Edit the config or have several versions of HBL2HBC with different configs (each just with one line for instant launching) in your SD:\wiiu\apps folder.
    If you want a way to directly boot into Wii homebrew (which is in SD:\apps) then no, there isn't such thing yet.

    They won't. The first game is the only legit one needed. It is used to run sig patches or a CFW so other Haxchis which are injected into games with fake tickets work as well.
    That's the downside. You always have to run your primary Haxchi first before you can use the others (=the forwarders).
    Of course it's just a workaround and not the finest way as those forwarders are not sharable due to copyright issues.

    You can but they won't run unless you run a legitally bought DS VC game first which does sig patches.
