    There you go, now naturally as you can see right now you still need zelda ONCE to install the extra channel. The channel will probably still need some adjusting though as right now it uses things from the Mii channel (though possibly if those are copied from your own Wii I suppose it is copyrighted material you own..). Regardless I'd say a new image + text will be added. This is also pretty nice for those of you with double channels btw as this MIGHT mean that double channels can be removed.

    Cheers,
    Scorpei

    They should've used the photo channel with a custom picture... Great news though!

    I don't even have a Wii and I'm psyched about this! Great news for the homebrew scene.

    Don't think so [​IMG]. 'Just' hijacked the mii channel to create their own channel. When/if this is released they probably won't use the mii channel at all as the mii channel is copyrighted code from the big N.

    couldnt they make an actual disk for people with chipped wiis, as we can sign them now, or is it more complicated?

    The interesting question is: Is the channel correctly signed or does it use the bug trucha signer uses?

    @rhyguy Why would they release an additional method that only works an chipped wiis when there is a really easy one that requires only once a disc... ?

    Buy Zelda, it's worth it regardless of the hack anyway.

    Woa nice!
    Now we just need a channel maker app [​IMG]

    Well just wondering.

    Looks like he just did replace the .dol file in the channel.
    Maybe that guy did manage to open a Wii Channel which would say that we maybe not are very long away from unlimited virtual console games [​IMG]

    That's great... this means we can soon start homebrews without inserting Zelda everytime [​IMG]

    And seeing that they're starting to know how to manage channels, a Dual-Channels removal tool might be near [​IMG]
