Hi! Is there a way to create a forwarder to launch a homebrew app (spiik in my case) directly from the WiiU menu?

you can use haxchi and assign each homebrew to a button press. I know of no homebrew that can make a forwarder directly.

A channel/forwarder has been made for Retroarch, wupinstaller, even usb loader gx. I suppose its possible to make one for Spiik.

those are not forwarders they are channels versions a forwarder would require the apps to still be on your sd card and the home menu

RetroArch Forwarder loads a random core on boot, likely crashes without SD in.
USB Loader GX forwarder launches the forwarder on vWii nand then boots the file on SD.

A folder with a .elf file, located in the wiiu folder on the SD card is required to boot USB Loader GX, so I suppose that all the USB Loader GX channel itself is doing is booting this .elf file.

I did it ghetto style!! I installed the channel forwarder for HBL2HBC, renamed the folder and the .elf file for what HBL2HBC is looking for, then I changed the icons and banners with ftpiiu, I changed the title name (HBL 2 HBC) in the meta.xml file for Spiik.
