So this is just something I've made while playing around with things for CBHC which were not successful but I thought some people may find this handy so I just made it into its own elf.
If you have the homebrew channel installed on your vwii and you want to quickly boot into it from the wiiu side, this elf will allow you to directly boot into it via the homebrew launcher.
If you want to launch other title ids you can do so by adding them into the hbl2hbc config file.

You can see me demonstrating it here:

Is this compatible with the 16:9 mod of the homebrew browser? If so, could you add options to config either launching the mod or original homebrew browser?

the vwii system menu is responsible for setting it to 4:3 and since this bypasses that and directly launches the homebrew channel that is not a problem, its in 16:9 as it should be.

Does this support the open-source version of the Homebrew Channel (OHBC)?
Any chance this could be edited to boot straight to Wiiflow or any other homebrew?

It's launching this installed channel on vWii:
//current vwii hbc title id
CMPTLaunchTitle(databuf, datasize, 0x00010001, 0x4c554c5a);

Which is the "LULZ" titleID.
if you want to boot another installed channel, you need its titleID.
0x4F484243 for OHBC

you can't boot a homebrew, you can boot channels. if you want to boot wiiflow, boot the forwarder channel's titleID.


If you ever think it's a good idea to edit/recompile, I don't think it is. we will end with many different mods of this tool.
Maybe a better solution is a menu, read from an external file containing different titleID to boot? users just have to add name-titleID in a config file instead of recompiling hundreds of hbl2hbc mods.
edit : maybe even read installed channels instead of an external files, but some users have a lot of channels installed, that's not the best choice for an easy and short menu.

I like Cyan's idea of the config file rather than a million mods, but since a lot of people use Wiiflow I've attached a version that boots straight to the titleID DWFA.

Very nice app. Thanks to it once in hbl, we are just one click away from nintendon't and whitout the need of any wii accessory.
Couple that with haxchi, and nintendon't become a wiiu app on the sys menu.

Could you make an installable app so I could have this homebrew app within redNAND/Mocha? That would be great so I could access the vWii homebrew from the Wii U menu without accessing the Wii U homebrew menu.

Wow this is really handy!
Just one question, this still requires the Wiimote, right?
We still can't use the Gamepad inside vWii by booting this?
