    So, i wanna play some of my gc games using Nintendon't but my WiiMote broke on me a few days ago, thus, i can't open the app when booting into the wii homebrew launcher.

    Is there anything i could do to boot straight into Nintendon't?
    Ikno HBL2HBC exists (it's what i used to get into the homebrew launcher)
    but i don't have nintendon't installed as a channel.

    And Wiimotes here are about 60 god damn bucks :V

    You'll have to install it as a channel. The Wii U Menu can access Wii Channels, but not specific Homebrew apps on the SD/USB.

    Well, since many Smartphones have Infrared wouldn't it be possible to emulate a Wiimote?

    So then explain the necessary bluetooth connection required for the system to recognize it?

    As the other person said, you can load specific homebrew channels on the vwii system menu if you install it as a channel first. Somehow you will need to install a channel forwarder for wiiflow, then put the homebrew on the SD/USB card, you can control wii flow if you get the master mod that supports wii u pro controller, after you do that, you wouldn't need the wii mote anymore. You can load all homebrew with wiiflow, you won't even need to use homebrew channel. (which does not support wii u pro controls.

    this isn't yet possible. booting into wii mode using a channel hasn't been successful up to this point. u may be forced to buy a wiimote again. where do u live? 'cause I even have the character-specific wiimotes like princess peach's, and they were only about $25 apiece.

    HBL2HBC looks like it's still the best option. I use it to boot into USB Loader GX, which has access to Nintendont games, Wii games and Homebrew like emulators installed as forwarders.
