    Since people constantly ask for a Loadiine channel version, such as here, I made this forwarder so you can launch Loadiine on your SD card straight from the system menu.

    The benefits to having this forwarder, is so you don't have to have another VC DS title with Haxchi installed over it and use that to launch Loadiine. Instead, you can just install this forwarder and get the same benefit.

    Here is the README -

    @Billy Acuña made a version of the Loadiine y1 mod that works with the forwarder here -

    Engine room, learning
    thank you for making a forwarder.

    What did you need to change in loadiine to work with the forwarder? it's not the same as loadiine working with the HBL channel? edit: ah, probably the check for the channel's titleID to reload itself.
    Which version did you used as base? latest Masqchip/Mighty from January or dimok from november?


    Edit:
    I added a new section on the wiki :)
    http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/List_of_WiiU_homebrew_applications#Homebrew_Forwarders
    it's temporary, if we have to many it will be deleted.
    it's listed here until we add them to their respective page (it will be easier to find each corresponding forwarders on the homebrew page instead of making a section full of forwarders with all existing homebrew)

    From that, I added the title ID of my forwarder to compile the new loadiine_gx2 elf and then the forwarder worked. :D

    If they want to make this official, I can send a PR to add the title ID of my forwarder, which is honestly just a very stripped down version of HBL. LOL

    BTW, I made a forwarder for hbl2hbc, but I won't release it unless @FIX94 says it's ok, and approves of the icon and splash screen.

    You know what's funny about this? you need signature patches to install this forwader... Yeah you might as well just install your games instead.

    Sounds promising! Thank you for your work on both forwarders, brienj! :)
    It's kind of funny that you of all people made that forwarder. You who doesn't see the need for it just to let the begging community shut up. :D
    However I might use it as I'm still using Loadiine for a few games until Dimok includes the FAT32 USB stuff into Mocha. So it's even useful for me.

    For rom injects and modding game files, it's still nice to use loadiine.

    For modding game files, you could use SD Cafiine couldn't you? You could even replace the files with FTPiiU Everywhere. For rom injects, just change the title ID in the app.xml and meta.xml and re-install as a new title. Loadiine is really useless now.

    All this is true. But the drag and drop of loadiine for many small vc titles is nice. Plus many "loadiine ready" vc injects have already been made and are easy to find.

    If you don't want it to get stuck in an infinite loop, yes you would have to use my elf. Loadiine checks the title that launched it, it must be added in the sources, which I showed earlier.
    Then just use nus packer and pack the files and install with wup installer. It couldn't be any easier.

    Actually if you're a coldboot user, this is extremely useful and you'll always be within CFW on boot.

    A cbhc mod exists which has loadiine launching from the config menu
