The HBL channel must be launched while CFW is enabled, presumably due to certificate-related stuff. I don't have a DS VC game, so it'd be quicker to just launch HBL then to launch mocha. But, after backing up my physical copy of New SUPER LUIGI U, the backup played on the system with no CFW Running, I realized this must be a certificate thing. Would copying the title.cert, title.tlk, and title.tmd (if I need to) from my NSLU backup, and using those instead of the certificate files the HBL channel comes with (If these even are certificates) with the Launcher install, would the HBL Channel run without CFW? I ask because a bad WUP install can brick your device.
