    Hi,

    So two days ago I wanted to use the homebrew browser. So I updated it and then I and I kept on getting this message:

    "Requesting repositories list... Read Error -6 occurred. Retrying...
    Read Error -6 occurred. Retrying...
    Read Error -6 occurred. Retrying...
    Read Error -6 occurred. Retrying...
    Read Error -6 occurred. Retrying..." and just keeps on going. I deleted and reinstalled several times and it just keeps on happening. i even got deleted the temp folder to see if it would fix it but it didn't.

    Also, it says "Requesting IP address of _________________...Failed, using stored IP address" and the it proceeds to the above "repositories message...

    How do I fix this? PLEASE HELP!

    *Also I got it to work (before I updated it) UNupdated and i wasn't able to click on the "Emulators" section.. Why wasn't it working? That's why i initially updated it....

    Thanks.

    1) You can't click on the Emulators section because there's nothing in it. Likely a non-standard repository was enabled.
    2) Have you tried deleting the Homebrew Browser's config files?
    3) If 2) fails, use the Panasonic SD Formatter and just put a fresh HBB on.

    Alright thanks, but do I replace the existing boot.dol in the hombrew_broswer folder with this one? Or do I reinstall it with this as the new boot.dol?

    Alright, well I replaced the existing boot.dol with the one from your source and I skipped the option to update knowing it would just give me the "read error -6" again. So I pressed B to skip it and it went to extract the image files. After it finished, it gave me a "(DSI)" and two "Dump" errors. So I restarted the Wii, loaded the HBB and it worked, and the emulator tab worked!!!

    Thanks a lot man, I really appreciate it!
