    Gambia, The
    lol @ the included icon
    So what this app does is restarting the HBL? From within the HBL as it's a homebrew app?
    That really sounds useless but thanks for sharing anyway. :D

    Thanks, I kind of made it so that it would try and show all the time, even if all the other apps have glitched out and won't show.

    What it does is basically, if your Homebrew Launcher glitches out and doesn't show the apps properly, then run this app and it will restart the Homebrew Launcher quicker then manually restarting (Also, it is specially made so that this app tries a lot of ways to not glitch out and actually run).

    Oh, not yet, I will upload a source code bit now.

    (What do you need in a source code, it's my first time making an app lol)

    My one sometimes glitches out like that, so some other people's might glitch out

    I have had other errors to which my app fixed but I won't describe them here

    They are installing an app that will solve many problems with their homebrew launcher messing up or glitching out.

    Kind of, it starts, tries to find the error, if no error found, it exits, if error found it will restart the Homebrew Launcher to try and fix the problem. If the problem is not fixed then it tries a couple more methods, if they work, it exits, if not then it just crashes, but it tries to fix it in a matter of miliseconds

    I don't think I can get a source code up yet but I will try to get it up as soon as possible.

    So if HBL is not showing apps, how exactly do you start this then? This app makes no sense at all.

    Uhm, do you know why the Homebrew Launcher restarts?
    Well, look at the elf file in an hex editor....
    [​IMG]

    Actually, renaming a .c file to .elf is not enough to make a program...
    You should actually compile the source code in a valid source tree, which you can get from the libeasy_helloworld example

    Also, being a restart only caused by the fact this isn't a valid elf file, IT WON'T FIX ANYTHING, sorry :P

    If you want an app to just relaunch HBL, you can just take the example Hello World and just make it autoquit.
