    Hey all. Hopefully someone will know what is going on with my wii u.
    It's on 5.5.1 and everything was working fine with it.
    Yesterday I updated homebrew launcher to 1.3 and now ever since I run homebrew browser the wii u freezes. The music still plays though. I have to hold down the power button for it to turn off.i used another sd card with original Hbl but it also freezes. If I run loadiine it's fine. Only time it freezes is when I enter homebrew browser. Wtf could it be. I'm going nuts here

    You should try the offline method with AIO Kafluke. I was in your situation, but with the offline method I got a 100% rating success on loading hombrew and never get freeze again!

    Sorry, corrected Kafluke

    Do you have a link to the offline guide? My WiFi isn't 100% reliable where I live.

    Homebrew launcher works fine. Its the homebrew browser that freezes.

    If you struggle , while we update the app , you may have to manually add apps , using the web front end.. but work is ongoing to increase stability..

    Unfortunately, as more apps have been added, the number of crashes has gone up... It's due to the way icons are downloaded, and I'm workin' on it.

    Pretty frustrating to see it degrade like this as more apps have been released on it, but that's just the way it is for now :(

    edit: like pwsincd said, in the meantime you can check out the new web interface: http://wiiubru.com/appstore/ designed by jaames
