    I just downloaded the homebrew appstore and updated my launcher from 1.3 to 1.4 but when I try to launch it I get a black screen that says one of the two things: ".ELF not found" or "FSopenfile failed" what am I doing wrong? (I'm on 5.5.1U and don't have CFW installed)

    Did you check your SD card to see if you have homebrew_launcher.elf?

    Yes. Maybe it's in the wrong directory? Should update it?

    So when I updated it the elf got replaced by an rpx file instead? Now it's saying it can't mount the SD

    yes 1.4 is even more unstable than 1.3 you should be able to boot rps using the 1.3 exploit since it still boots the 1.4 homebrew launcher on youre sd


    => About Homebrew Launcher 1.4 : Following some feedbacks we've received during this week-end, it seems that some people are encountering white screens issues trying to run the payload. For many of them, this was fixed by resetting browser's cookies on their WiiU, so if you encounter the same problem, try this solution first. On the other hand and even with a cleaned browser, the problem is still there for few users. While we take a look at this problem, we invite impacted people to run HBL 1.3 instead of 1.4 for the time being, as the bootrate is way better on it.
    We apologize for the unconveniance caused.

    from loaddiine.ovh xD

    you also could just get haxchi worth the 7 bucks no crashes anymore

    I downloaded a (retroarch) emulator for my Wii U which contains an rpx file but the Homebrew launcher doesn't read it
