HomebrewFilter rev 44

  1. stomp_442
    HomebrewFilter is a homebrew launcher for Wii and vWii

    == 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).
