    I saw on someone sig a link to a wad. The link leads to a mediafire file named HBC Blax.wad and suppose to be based on HBC 1.0.3, I started to look here about that, but no luck. If I use the "search engine" from gbatemp, I can only find some threads about ppl having problem with hbc black-screening on them.

    What the fudge ??

    its probably just the title ID for the channel or something.
    anywho, any version on hbc in wad form is illegal and not recommend for use at all.
    as in, there's is abosolutly no reason for it because we have the hackmii installer

    It's likely a recolor of the original Homebrew Channel 1.0.3 which has been (illegally and against the authors' every wish) repacked into a wad. Popular colors include black (DarkWii charcoal gray), true black, red, "beer" golden brown, and acid green.

    Differences include:
    1. Different "liquid" colors in the icon and banner
    2. Won't auto-update
    3. Hand cursor used to navigate HBC is pointing with a different finger

    That being said, there's something kind of fun about recoloring it yourself, if you're handy with brlyts.
