    OK. I am having an issue. I cannot run the homebrew launcher on my wiiu through any host for that matter) I keep getting a black screen with the error: failed to load elf sd:wiiu/apps/homebrew_launcher/homebrew_launcher.elf.
    It was working before. Does anyone know what's up? Thanks in advance!

    @DualBladedKirito How did u solve it? it was working fine for me earlier today then after i installed a usb disk it stopped working and i got the same error as u. Tried to format the sd-card and copied the files again but same result :(
    Tried both local and online exploits. loadline gx starts and im on 5.5.1
    Someone said they updated from 5.3.2 to 5.5.1 to fix it and i guess i should try to wipe my wiiu but it seems a bit drastic


    Got it to work when i used HBL 1.1 isntead. Strange casue it used to work with 1.2rc3
