    Inspired by @Summersett's work with his Wii U exploit tutorial, I decided to make my own version of the exploit launcher index.html. This will serve as a thread for anyone that wishes to do the same. Post your own if you want!

    ---------

    List of launchers:

    Editing:

    You can do it too! If you're not familiar with HTML, CSS and all that, don't worry - there's endless amounts of resources out there to help. Here's a list of just a few:

    Make a Website - Interactive step-by-step tutorial that explains the basics
    Learn to Code HTML & CSS - Another good step-by-step guide

    W3Schools - The best reference guide on all the syntax

    Unwrapping the Wii U Browser - A breakdown of everything regarding the Wii U browser
    The Wii U from a Web Developers Perspective - What it says there
    Wii U Internet Browser Specs - Straight from Nintendo

    Note that the Wii U browser, while HTML5 compliant, is a bit finicky when it comes to rendering web pages - for example, it replaces most fonts with a default system one. See the above articles for more.

    Here's a zip just to my index.html and bgimage.jpg, so the hacks can be kept separately:
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B05fxP4eRdckc0RQY2FXeXA0WmM/view?usp=sharing

    Nice work :)

    Keep in mind that there is a certain size limit for loading files.
    179KB bgimage.jpg froze my Wii U every time I tried to run a hack.

    As of now the largest working is 90.1KB total size.

    I used a 980x513 image with 158 PPI to perfectly fit in the screen.

    Looking forward to seeing a bunch of sweet launch pages!

    These look pretty neat. I would make my own but I forgot HTML and CSS. :cry:

    I have noticed something with the custom imgs. They look really good agreed but I have found out that when the index file starts to become more bigger with more content inside the Exploit/Kexploit drivers struggle to boot they freeze up and also they Race Attack Error a lot more often, now if you take the index file away they will boot more often again.

    I've noticed this too. I used to be able to use wj44's website just fine, and click on a link to launch the exploit. Over time, he's added more links to the page, and now none of them work. To get them to work, I've bookmarked the direct URL of each exploit, and I launch them from the browser's favourites menu.

    I'm not sure if its because the self hosting/www folder is becoming more packed with files and that is why its not working more efficient or just because the index file is getting more content, I'm not 100% sure about this but I have been testing it out now I had no problems at all with booting the osdriver but lately with more in the self hosting folder or the index file, whichever, its becoming a nightmare to boot even the kexploit is the same! I've gone from at least 15 boots in a row before a Race Attack Error ever popped up, to now doing it on nearly every 2nd or 3rd go without failure!

    They still work sometimes for me, but very rarely. I've bookmarked your kernel exploit link, and that works for me around 95% of the time.
    Thanks for combining the Loadiine/Dumpiine and regular kernels into one by the way, it's much appreciated!

    That works with the normal driver as well as the Loadiine driver, all in one?

    I did some more testing on launching the standard kernel exploit and it seems like the background and icons can sometimes interfere with the process. If you run into trouble with my launcher, check the OP - it now has a 'lite' version included as a download that should hopefully be more stable. Still colorful but without the icons and background.

    just something I've noticed, the exploit gets REALLY unstable if you have 2 html files (I had a one to select if you want non-kernel or kernel related apps which would lead to a new html), and that made it impossible to use it even though my page "design" is non-existant. Now I did modify my page to have some javascript to hide/show the selected apps in a single html and its all fine, pretty interesting behavior imo.
