Hello,

I followed this excellent guide to get everything working on my vWii, but every time I try to launch Homebrew Browser, it crashes with a DSI and a stack dump. My impression is that this should be working on vWii—any ideas?

I only have my SD card inserted into my Wii U (no USB)—is that the problem? FWIW, other apps are working fine (e.g. emulators and USB Loader GX).

On a side note, this forum is incredible.

A) does your vWii have an internet connection?
B) are you holding "B" on the Wii Remote on startup?

Are you using an original Wiimote? Is it one with a built in Motion Plus?
I read that older homebrew doesn't support the new Wiimotes unless they are updated.
And I've had first hand experience with crashes caused by 3rd party controllers.

That did the trick! Thank you. A donation is coming your way.

Looking at the diff, I understand setting_disusb="1", but what does setting_server="1" do?

I set it to use the secondary server, and (in case you ever get a USB drive for the Wii U) disabled USB mounting.

Thank you so much for the donation. That will help get HacksDen back up, which hosts all the guides and homebrew I've written.

I have tried to let the homebrew browser update itself from its start screen, been t it gives an error wth the expected size of the file and will not download it. Will setting the
setting_check_size to "0" allow it to download? Or is that safe???

I think i may be getting the same error, as I am browsing HBB it will randomly crash. (i've included a screen shot of the error message i get)

i have changed the "settings.xml" file as suggested above... we'll see what happens.

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?

    @Peretti, Ask you question in the Wii section of the forum.
