    So I was wondering if it would be possible to make a custom HBC channel.
    I guess i would need the boot.dol (or WAD file) from my HBC - how do i get a hold of it?

    & would i just install as a seperate channel (with different ID)

    Thanks,
    Rich

    i think there are protections in place for the homebrew channel that dont allow a wad creation of it but i could try and dump it with bluedump, dunno what your going to acheive though

    If u try to pack the HBC in a wad, it doesn't work the same way, I can't remember the details, but Team Twiizers did something to prevent this.

    U may have better luck modding the HAXX to JODI forwarder channel (ie. a forwarder channel for the HBC), but it would still require the homebrew channel (JODI) be installed on the wii

    i might just try this instead, thanks. I 'll have a seach around for it

    I just want to make a custom banner and icon to match some other channels i've been making.

    Cheers

    I used to have a black version of HBC (black waves and bubbles rather than blue), dont think that was a forwarder. It installed as BLAX and ran whatever the latest version of HBC was back then (probably 1.0.3 if my memory is correct)

    EDIT: A quick google = http://gbatemp.net/t177136-

    I already made one for the current version of the HBC.
    Just use customizemii to replace/extract etc...

    Hey if u install this channel and delete the original homebrew channel will this work? I remember with the older 1.0.3 i installed a diff homebrew channel and deleted the old one and then my homebrew did not work. Just curious thanks.

    It'll still work but other apps that work based on the 4 digit id of the HBC won't.
    Ex. Priiloader - It looks for haxx or jodi.

    Although, if you change the 4 digit ID on my channel to one of the 4 digit codes above, it would work fine.

    it wont change the pointer, that can only be changed by installing a custom theme (ie. using mymenuify), not by installing a custom channel
