    the installable version of homebrew channel isn't working anymore after installing this.

    This is not installed, this is not a persistent hack nor loaded automatically at console's boot.
    it has nothing to do with installed channels.

    It's a browser exploit loaded on request (by launching the browser channel) from the SD card and used to patch the sysmenu to allow arbitrary userspace code, and automatically launches the homebrew launcher elf file on SD. additionally it temporarily replaces MiiMaker with a HBL channel !
    if you launch this exploit to launch the channel, you do it wrong.
    launch the MiiMaker if you want to return to HBL if you already used this exploit since you last (re)booted your console or went into the settings menu.


    This is neither a persistent hack nor a signature check patcher, you can't launch the installed homebrew channel (unsigned code!) without a system menu signature patch (CFW). You need to launch a firmware patcher from HBL before being able to launch the installable homebrew launcher's channel.
    If you want a persistent hack, install CBHC instead.
    If you don't want haxchi or CBHC as CFW, I recommend you use this one instead to launch all custom unofficial channels : https://gbatemp.net/threads/simple-signature-check-patcher.451138/

    but without haxchi or CBHC, you defeat the purpose of the installed channel, because you first need to launch the browser hax to go into HBL to patch your firmware into CFW and remove signature check, to launch the unsigned HBL channel and go into ..... HBL again? a little redundant no? You already are in HBL you don't need the channel anymore!
    the installable channel is specifically used to launch HBL when you don't use the browserhax.


    two choices :
    browserhax -> HBL (and signed Miimaker channel for any subsequent relaunch of HBL)
    or
    (cb)haxchi (CFW with sigpatch) -> unsigned HBL channel

    useless :
    browserhax -> HBL -> CFW patcher -> Sysmenu -> HBL channel


    if you don't know what haxchi or cbhc are, there's a pinned topic with lot of explanations.

    Hi!
    after updating to 5.5.4, I´ve got the error "FSOpenFile" in a black screen
    My SD is FAT32 formatted and it has the file: k:\wiiu\payload.elf in the "correct" folder

    Any idea why it is not working?

    Thank you in advance!

    Not necessary, just start CBHC Installer but don't forget to remove all USB drives if there are any connected! Also, install Haxchi first to be safe that everything works. Also check the Coldboot Haxchi thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/cbhc-v1-6-coldboot-haxchi-cfw.452615/
