    @Cyan would you mind making this post into a sticky? It would help out Vgmoose a lot, and would give the app more exposure.

    You need and images folder with an hbas header. Png and a bg. Png in it . Also if you add a missing.png to your root it will sit where your apps don't have icons as a placeholder. Some of your meta.xml files are missing the url tag also as your getting n/a in the source column . At work right now can help more when home this evening.

    It keeps saying it's downloading app directory after leaving it on for a while and when I exit (pushing the HOME menu button) it just hangs on a black screen with the awesome chiptune still playing.
    But other than that great job, about time we need this lol. Now if only the 3ds had something like this for CIA homebrew...

    I spent countless hours updating geckiine to work with a selectable IP address that also maintains the IP address in memory from app to app. The original source was released under the GPL, so I've updated it on my own and have re-released it under the GPL releasing my source code with it - https://github.com/xhp-creations/Geckiine

    If you want to see the original source code, check the history, or go to https://github.com/OatmealDome/Geckiine

    All credits to OatmealDome, along with the credits he gave to others is fully retained. If anyone wants to change my source code and release again, feel free, it's under the GPL.

    You still having this problem? My understanding is this happens if the connection to the server doesn't respond.

    And I suspect it is hanging on home, as it's waiting for the download thread to exit before quitting. This might happen if tubehax is down, or you can't reach the repo from your Wii U. So, if you still can't reach it, can I ask if you're able to visit http://wiiubru.com/appstore/ from the Wii U browser?

    I need better error handling!

    I didn't get notified for this. it doesn't always work...

    I guess I'll do it, if it can promote homebrew a little.

    I'll also add it to wiki (nobody did it !!)


    @vgmoose :
    I didn't check the sources, so just asking here:
    does it download the files one by one (elf, png, meta), or does it download a zip and unpack it ?
    I suppose the "file by file" method will not work if there are other files needed by the homebrew (settings, subfolders etc.)

    I think Gbiine needs updating - the latest version is 2.0b, not 2.0!

    I also feel that Loadiine should really reflect the nightlies rather than the latest stable. There's nothing wrong with the latest nightly, and updates seem to have called anyway.
