    Hello, I've recently installed the homebrew channel on my vWii without any issues, but I am unable to use the channel as I don't have any controllers that will work in the homebrew channel. I only have the WiiU gamepad and two 3rd party wiimote+ controllers...

    I looked around and everything I found said that I can only use a non wiimote plus 1st party wiimote to control the homebrew channel.

    Could anyone direct me to a guide to uninstall the homebrew channel, as I would like to continue using a fully updated version of my Wii U

    The Homebrew Channel doesn't recognize the wii motion plus?
    lolwut

    I recall using a wii remote with built in wii motion plus on the real Wii and it worked fine.

    OK. Do you guys have any idea why my vWii homebrew channel shuts off my wii-motes once it opens, and the wiimotes un-sync from my console? The console is not frozen, as the bubbles are moving, but I can't sync the controllers or interact in any way...

    I do only have third party wii-motes, but they work fine everywhere else... Is that a usual issue?

    most homebrew apps cant work with fake wiimotes so even if you could controll homebrew channel you would only get working fake wiiremotes on probably backup loaders with luck, the lesson is never use fake wiimotes for homebrew becuase they basicaly only work on wii official stuff since they send signals like crazy and most homebrew apps cant handle them.

    Say I was able to install everything I needed with a borrowed wiimote, would I be fine from there to proceed using my 3rd party ones? Or would I need to offical ones to interact with various channels that I launch my ISOs off of? (I'm not sure what the environment is like after installing cIOS and usbloader...

    you would need your official one to use homebrew channel and most homebrew apps, no idea if your fake wiiremote would even work in usbloader gx to choose the game.
