Same here. It works flawlessley with other channels such as Wiimc, Usb Loader gx, Wiiflow or Cfg loader gx but the picking the HC always ends up in a reboot. I've run a syscheck in my vwii and it says the homebrew channel is not install at all (absurd I know).

I've run out of ideas to make it work :sad:

Are you positive you're using the correct title id? You can use USB Loader GX to view "System Channels" to make sure what the correct title id is.

I shall double-check later. However, I believe it must be LULZ for the Homebrew Channel :unsure:
By the way, I didn't know about that way of checking title ids in wii/wii u. I've always use ShowMiiWads and the GameTDB to check.

See if OHBC=Homebrew Channel in the config file works. If not, this is what I have on mine and it works from the channel and also from the Haxchi boot menu.

hbl2hbc v1.1:
https://github.com/FIX94/hbl2hbc/releases
(hbl2hbc.txt file has OHBC=Homebrew Channel)

Homebrew Launcher 1.5 (sd:\wiiu\apps\homebrew_launcher\):
https://github.com/dimok789/homebrew_launcher/releases

Homebrew Launcher Channel 2.1 (Read the post, then download the hotfix update hblout.zip file):
https://github.com/dimok789/homebrew_launcher/issues/28#issuecomment-315604361

Open Homebrew Channel v1.1.4-1 (on vWii):
https://github.com/FIX94/hbc/releases

Also, don't forget about this hbl2hbc channel forwarder:

    In the EU we get 2 year warranty, but if we open a device the warranty gets void, so I'll just stick with getting a bigger micro sd card.

    Still, not a dealbreaker.

    I'm out of the loop with new hardware thingies, and that includes transfer speeds.

    I do know SD cards have some new standard, with extra pins, and they're freaky fast.

    Compared to when I was last keeping up to date, that is.

  • Dark_Phoras @ Dark_Phoras:
    What is this lag, it shouldn't be lag between when you press a button and the corresponding action on-screen, people make a ruckus for less than that

  • Veho @ Veho:
    What lag?

    It's the loading time.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    Not a lag on button presses.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    Portal 2 takes 10-17 seconds longer to load from an SD card than from the internal SSD storage.

  • Dark_Phoras @ Dark_Phoras:
    I just wanted to be clear that I had ruled out the lag on button presses. I have reasonable intelligence
