    Well i got an idea to install the Homebrewchannel on 4.0.
    Maybe i am very silly or clever.

    Anyway here is my idea:
    We all know:
    Since 3.3 Trucha Discs are not longer working. The will not start through the normal Wii Menu but for example through GeckoOS!

    My idea is like the CD Stream Glitch in The Legend of Zelda: The Twilight Princess.
    Basic idea:
    While playing press Home and remove the Disc and insert it again.
    This will the game not load all. But it still reads the Disc and will work!

    My idea is for Mario Kart Wii:
    Replace the Mario Kart Channel Wad (RevoKartNR.wad ) with the Wad of the Homebrewchannel (this idea inst from me!!! I read it in another forum).
    Well that will Trucha Sign the Disc.

    What will happen:
    We have 2 Discs:
    1.Normal, no Trucha, no Patch or something Mario Kart Wii Disc.
    2.The patche Mario Kart Wii Disc with the Homebrewchannel Wad.

    I think it is better to uninstall the Mario Kart Wii Channel before.
    At first we start the game with the normal Mario Kart Wii Disc.
    In the main Screen (at profil select), press Home, remove the Disc and insert the Trucha Disc with the Homebrewchannel Wad.


    If it works: It will read the Disc and we can install the Homebrewchannel

    If not: We will get an Read Error.

    Can someone with a Modchip and no Trucha try that?

    why would it actually start loading?
    imho.. nothing is calling a boot for that .wad on a trucha disc..

    your theory doesnt sound logicly to me... (since you didnt test this at all....)


    (but hey... who knows?)

    But the game wants to (re)install the MKWii channel. Resulting in the call for the WAD, which then could be installed... (if it works, obviously)

    what you don't understand is that the wad on Mario Kart disk is installed the same way as if you used WAD Manager

    which means that any fakesigned wad (which the HBC wad is also) won't install since IOS won't recognize a valid signature

    you need wads with nintendo signature in it, which is currently IMPOSSIBLE to reproduce and make your whole idea fail


    The only way to install HBC on 4.0 is to wait for the new exploit to be released. This new exploit is in fact 2 exploits which let you:

    1/ run your own code on the Wii
    2/ install fakesigned content (not WAD !) on the NAND despite IOS restrictions

    Possible. But it's worth a try. Maybe the game has some "special rights" so the check is skipped, if the game has the previliges(?).

    no, there is no "special rights"

    the IOS check the signature, fakesigned wads are rejected (since they fixed the bug in every IOS), legit wads are installed on the NAND
    it's the IOS which acces the NAND and give autorizations, not the game

    The wad would be trucha signed ==> no install.

    But replacing a .dol from a VC demo on a SSBB disc would not have this problem(still low chances). This would allow you to launch the IOS35 downgrader and everything else you need for trucha signed content.
