    As the title says, what are the other top used loaders other than HBC and what is their compatibility with Homebrew Browser and other apps like GX Loader?

    Thanks,

    Assuming by "Loader" you don't mean USB loaders, and instead mean actual homebrew loaders, there aren't many alternatives to the Homebrew Channel, but these are the ones I know of:

    Homebrew Filter
    LoadMii
    postLoader
    WiiXplorer

    Note however, that I'm pretty sure some of the USB loaders like Wiiflow and USB GX can also boot homebrew, but I don't really use them, so I don't know that for a fact.

    If you require Wii U Pro Controller support, postLoader, Wiixplorer, and Wiiflow all support it (USB GX and the HBC do not).

    One more thing, the Homebrew Channel is still the easiest way to get started if you've not yet hacked your Wii, so it never hurts to at least keep it installed and tucked away somewhere on the last page of the System Menu.

    Yeah, the reason I'm asking is in reference to my other thread about hiding the Homebrew Channel so that the parents can't find it. They are against all unnecessary downloads and threatened to yank my systems, all of them. :wtf:
    So HBC is still the best eh? Alright, I'm gonna look into making a custom banner then. :glare: I'll show you guys what I come up with.

    I've already got Priiloader and BootMii set up with a NAND backup already done so I'm still being careful but I'm not overly worried about banner issues.


    TTYL,
