    I have a very strange problem.

    Im running system version 3.3e and Gecko OS (1.06) did launch via Home Brew Channel beta 8. All was working perfectly.

    Now I wanted to access the shop channel, but remain with my config and versions above so I installed the HBC friendly versions of the Wii Shop and IOS51 installer. While I was at it, i also updated the HBC to beta 9 and Gecko OS to 1.07b.

    I can now access the shop channel, but when launching Gecko OS "This is not a valid wii application" is displayed. Other apps installed work such as the WAD Installer etc. I have re-downloaded Gecko OS but no luck.

    I am so confused. What could be the cause of this? I have tried a newly formated SD card - incase the files were correupt, but still get the same message.

    Please help me!

    Many thanks indvance.

    The homebrew channel beta9 supports elf files. The problem is most currently released elf files are malformed (not actually elf files)

    Should I go back to the old homebrew channel (beta 8) ? Is that my problem?
