    So I made a forwarder for ConnectMii, and I made it with CustomizeMii 3.11. I converted it so I would work on vWii with Convert2vWii. Is it safe to install? Here is the WAD, it loads SD:\apps\ConnectMii\boot.dol. Thanks. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxxutY7017LxRzEtWnk5cVR0WVk

    EDIT: I installed the .wad to Dolphin, here's what I got [​IMG]

    So you're not sure it's safe, but you want somebody else to install it to find out? :glare:

    If you have a nand dump, test the wad out in Dolphin.

    It freezes when I load the system menu(not the Wii, and program itself). I also have a bad CPU so I won't run as fast. And I have a vWii, not a Wii

    Should I upload my NAND dump from the vWii?

    You apparently made this, so you should know what this means... It means that it crashed.

    What crashed? Dolphin or the CustomizeMii program? I installed in Dolphin, it loads the Menu fine

    By "it", do you mean Dolphin? I installed it to Dolphin and I didn't get a error like that, the System Menu loaded fine, I posted a image for the Wii Menu with the channel installed

    OK, I'll check that out!

    OK, I dowloaded the .wad, now installing the .wad.

    But what i wanted a forwarder for a app that doesn't have it's own forwarder? Could someone test my ConnectMii forwarder that I made on a vWii? The banner and icon is the icon for ConnectMii (SD:\apps\ConnectMii\icon.png)

    Installed the ConnectMii forwarder you have me, it works! Thans

    The dangerous part is not what the program does, but the animated banner.
    If the banner is wrongly formed, the System menu will crash, and there's no way to fix it on vWii as you won't be able to bypass it and go to HBC.
    if the forwarder code is the issue, then don't worry because you can replace it with a new wad install.
    But, why bother with a wad to test your code? You can test your forwarder by launching the dol in HBC!

    If you want to test the animated banner, why not use the real hardware ?
    Make a Neek version of your vWii and install the wad on that emuNAND. see if sneek's system menu loads fine and can play the animated banner.

    The banner is not animated. It just loads SD:\apps\ConnectMii\boot.dol. I loaded the .dol from HBC and it runs great

    it's a wad not installing a channel on system menu ?
    a forwarder without a channel ? what's the point.
    There IS a banner, even if not animated. that's what needs to be correctly made or the System menu will banner-brick.

    if you don't need anything fancy as animation, you could use a "generic forwarder" ?
    There is one I'm using, which is reading a config file on SD card with a path to the dol to load.

    Channel (blank banner) -> read SD -> read path -> load dol from that path.
