    I'm about to buy some Wiimotes for the homebrew channel. Which ones work and does anyone have some links to the wiimote? Thanks!

    There's your problem. It might have downloaded a revision of USBLGX that doesn't support the app-updating features.
    The latest revisions may support all WiiMotes...

    BS again.


    really really old and not recompiled (since at least 4 years) homebrews are not compatible. Those dead homebrews should not be used because unsupported and buggy since a long time.
    90% of Wii homebrew ARE compatible ! And even if some are not, you can always find a fork that works !


    ps : question was "is HBC compatible ?". Answser is : YES !
