    God I hope this is the real deal. I tried finding it on the Wiibrew site, but no luck. Anyone have a link to the Wiibrew page, not just the download link?

    I wonder if Waninkoko would update his WAD Manager based on this? Deleting WADs without having the originals is great. [​IMG]

    I can confirm that it does work; I just used it to uninstall the Homebrew Channel, so I can reinstall via Twilight Hack and get rid of that annoying middle finger cursor.

    Edited for clarity

    you can grab it from eurasia (need regsitration)

    this tool is from eltroloado and is indeed based on Waninkoko sourcecode and Title Lister sourcecode from bushing, as stated in the credits so this is probably working fine


    btw, this is very easy to add or delete titles using libogc ES_ functions, as you will see in the sourcecode [​IMG]

    So are you saying anyone can make the changes to say WAD Manager so we can not only uninstall without a WAD but install as well? I like to get the best of both worlds without filling my HBC with so many programs. [​IMG]

    Duplicate channels? Channels you deleted the WADs for?

    to clear that off:

    to delete a channel (ticket AND content): you only need the title ID

    to install a channel: you need the channel content (main application, banner, ressources files,...), packaged into a WAD.

    there is no way you can install a channel without the WAD, if the channel has been previously deleted, the content is lost.

    now where is that online title ID lister so i can narrow down what i need to delete

    EDIT
    can anyone help me out i need the title IDs for homebrew channel,snes9x(the 1st banner version) internet channel, guitar fun, because im finding it hard to narrow down my list of 45 there are a load od titles with A it the begginging these are custom channels yes

    EDIT 2
    theres a small glitch i found where it will list the same title 2 times after deleteing something at the end i had 2 NAAPs at the end of mine(mario 64) just thought peeps should know, i go back to the loader after every install now to make sure i dont delete anything by accident, because im not cool for deleteing my brought games from the shop(its a bit mix n match on what i have brought, its about 2/3 brought games
    this also deletes the channel aswell if you have it on your wii deleted guitar fun kinda by accident(was removeing anyhting with Axxx

    Great, now we just need an installer that doesn't need the WAD! Hehe [​IMG].

    Still, this is good news, and makes everything a lot easier. Any chance it could be implemented into WAD manager somehow?

    This is exactly what I was looking for.
    I was considering putting the idea up on WiiBrew Ideas part about 2 days ago.

    Yeah that would be ideal to cut down on the number of progs in the HBC. Anyways, a nice step forward.

    Does this show all title ids on the system? If so, thats some dangerous application. Careful not to uninstall an ios or something as important. [​IMG]

    If you're wondering what will happen if you do:
