    I have been looking for days have yet to find anything on if it can be donw for sure and how it can be done
    I can live with dk2 pics for now but if there are ways to change them and still be able to do a sd backup it would be great to know
    I noticed on the homebrew video they had a custom channel and a makeshift banner so wondered if it was avalable yet?

    To my knowledge no one has released a tool to change the channel's background picture yet, however the banner tool has been around for some time. Of course you could grab a hex editor and have a go manually.

    Paradox has released a NES emulator channel with custom banners so hopefully a tool will be released very soon.

    The website in their banner doesn't seem to have it available (actually I have no clue where to go).

    Although I'm not really a graphics whore, I do like this banner-thing workign out. Hope they will release a stable version of the application that did that for them in the near future.

    A corrupted banner would show a black banner or crash, but brick the Wii ? I highly doubt it's true

    actually, it IS possible. the wii first scans all the installed channels, if a corrupted 000000.app is among them, the wii WILL fail to boot up.
