    Hi !

    I have a REDnand setup and working fine.
    When I boot my WiiU, I launch the web browser and access an URL on my local network (apache server) that i bookmarked: http://localmachine/wiiu/

    This launches the Homebrew Loader and then I start the CFW booter.

    Is there a way to host the CFW booter directly ? I would want to access http://localmachine/cfw/ from a bookmark and be in REDnand, saving a few screen taps.

    You can use Haxchi to launch the Hombrew Launcher directly from the HomeScreen :)

    You can replace the homebrew launcher or loadiine .elf with the cfwbooter .elf and the url that loads the hb launcher or loadiine as your standard page.
    Then it should work like that

    So you suggest replacing elf files on the SD card ?

    Couldn't I instead edit some path in one of these files on my web server ?
    code300.bin frame.html payload532.html
    code310.bin index.html payload.php
    code400.bin payload300.html wiiu_browserhax_common.php
    code410.bin payload310.html wiiuhaxx_common_cfg.php
    code500.bin payload400.html wiiuhaxx_loader.bin
    code532.bin payload410.html wiiuhaxx_rop_sysver_532.php
    code550.bin payload500.html wiiuhaxx_rop_sysver_550.php

    If I swap the elf on the SD card, I can't choose to launch the HBL or CFW booter, I can only launch the CFW booter.

    Try using loadiine.ovh and yes you need to replace the files on the sd card.

    Possibly you could hex edit code550.bin (or the one corresponding to your firmware version), that's where the .elf path is stored. Just make sure the new filename is of the same length.

    Thanks, this worked !

    I have 2 bookmarks in my browser now: one that launches REDnand directly and one that launches the homebrew launcher.
