    Would I be able to host a .PHP that launches automatically to HBL on Github? With the homebrew_launcher.elf being in /wiiu/apps/homebrew_launcher of coarse

    How would I do that?

    I know that this link: http://107.170.0.56/hbl/index.php

    Automatically launches it. How would I be able to get the same results only using Github?

    You probably wouldn't be able to avoid having homebrew_launcher.elf on your SD card, but you could definitely write up a script to download the webserver payload from GitHub. Here's a direct link to code550.bin, for example. You could also theoretically download the zip (this one, maybe?) and extract it with PHP.

    Random question - Why do you need this? If you have the capability to run PHP scripts, why not just download the HBL files and host them locally? Referencing to files outside your network has been known to slow things down (to the point where the exploits start being unstable). Just curious.

    I have the homebrew launcher installed on my 3ds. I think I found out how to do it- but I'm not sure yet
