    I'd like to have shortcuts to the homebrew launcher, homebrew games, and Wiiflow on Vwii on my menu. Is there a way I can do this easily?

    If you CBHC have, Haxchi can help you. [Install it over illegitimate VC games, not your CBHC installation]

    You can use this: https://gbatemp.net/threads/hbl2hbc-v1-1-boot-from-wiiu-hbl-into-vwii-hbc.455673/
    Set the Haxchi config to autoboot hbl2hbc, and set the hbl2hbc config to boot whatever you like.
    Then install Haxchi to a non-legit VC (use a different game than the one CBHC is installed to and make absolutely sure you're installing Haxchi to the correct one otherwise you'll BRICK)

    I think he's asking about the virtual wii itself, but I could be mistaken. :P u can find forwarders for many apps, just make sure u install the ones for the vWii.

    Um...no. I want to boot directly into selected homebrew apps for Wii U, and straight into Wiiflow by tapping an icon on the Wii U menu.

    @The Real Jdbye 's is one option. a second option is to take over a wii game's forwarder. I don't know if that's possible yet or not. u can inject vc games into every platform, but maybe or maybe not the wii's. u should look up vc injects to see if that's possible now.

    AFAIK it's not possible yet. People have been looking into the Wii VC header and have almost been able to recreate a valid header, but there's one piece of the puzzle missing that's preventing it from working.

    that's what I was thinking. I did some research on vc injects a few months ago, and I know it wasn't possible then. thanks for the current info though.

    Has anyone tried messing around with [0005000010204F00] (LOST REAVERS NOTICE)?
    It was/is an icon that would forward you into the eShop.
    Wonder if there is a way to tinker it into booting something else versus just the eShop.

    EDIT:
    It is 9.95MB with a 133kb eShopJump.rpx
    [https://github.com/BullyWiiPlaza/RPL-Studio]
    Allows pointing to the destination ID in cos.xml [DST_TITLE_ID=]

    I would do it myself but after I'm done with everything

    I will not have a Wii U available for the foreseeable future. I was just passing on info for those able to tinker more-so.

    That's exactly how I launch Tcpgecko from the WiiU system menu.

    I'm having trouble getting my Loadiine shortcut to install. it keeps corrupting the game.All I did was edit the pics and the folder path. Does it need to be different for actual apps than for the HBL shortcut?

    My Loadiine shortcut is actually a Loadiine forwarder, not Haxchi that boots Loadiine. Search the forum for the Loadiine channel forwarder.

    Installed it, tried it, all I get is a flashing blue screen. Loads fine from HBL.

    You have to use a modified version of Loadiine I believe. I forget exactly. But it should say something in the official thread.
