    * New title id to circumvent its deletion by System Menu 4.3.
    * New look from our favorite pixel artist drmr.
    * Both views now show five rows of application entries.
    * On-NAND settings.
    * HBC now has the HW_AHBPROT flags set for direct hardware access, thus replacing DVDX.
    * Ability to not reload IOS when launching an application.
    * USB access is more stable, thanks to tueidj
    * Fixed the retry mechanism for the network initialization.
    * Fixed some rare hangs upon launch and exit (Hopefully all of them).

    The theme is cool and all, but now some of the icons are unreadable.

    Double unreadable icons, and new title id is not good at all.

    What problems could the new title ID cause?

    Its been given a darker blue background as well as redesigned online icons in the bottom right. Looks very nice to me.

    Absolutely none. Of course, apps like Priiloader can't autoboot it for now, but that would happen regardless of what the new title ID was, and there had to be a new one.

    There is realy no problem with the Title ID. Priiloader can still boot the Channel with the Boot Channel option. Not directly with the Boot homebrew channel funktion for now, but the next update will include it.
    edit: lol, the german mod is updated for HBC 1.0.7:
    http://priiloader.baduncles.de/
    So everyone who is using the Priiloader german mod can update [​IMG]
    edit2: only the sources are updated [​IMG]

    I'm using a Samsung DLP 61 Inch HDTV with my Wii, and I've noticed that the font in HBC 1.0.7 is more "rough" for lack of a better word. I am not sure if this is a side effect of the darker background, but I do know it's not do to the DLP causing blooming around the text edges; fully calibrated the PQ.

    It's the same affect you get when you try to display text at too low of a res, or turn of "font smoothing". The text seems blockier, with a courser outline that, when displaying smaller text like in the app description pop-ups, tends to narrow out some the the thinner font characters. I've connected the Wii to my old 32 Inch CRT, and while the problem is less pronounced, it is still there. I never did notice this with previous releases of the HBC, at least not with 1.0.6; my memory may have faded as far as the old versions go [​IMG] Has anyone else notice this?

    Otherwise, I love the update. The darker theme is a refreshing change. Just gotta redo some of the alpha channels on some icons to make them more pronounced.

    Thanks again to the HBC Team, keep up the good work.

    I'll stick with the boring one that works with everything for now [​IMG]
