    i found a Wii Homebrew Launcher 0.4 Wad file on this site http://www5.atpages.jp/wiihack/

    since it's a wad does that mean it installs the HL as a channel on the Wii or have i got this wrong. id try it out but i dont want to risk anything so i thought i'd ask here first.

    It should be exactly like the WAD I made for WiiHL (available on WiiBrew). Just installs WiiHL as a channel so you can easily launch it.

    guys if you scroll down on this site a bit

    http://pspplayground.condor.serverpro3.com...mp;topic=7648.0

    you can see a Wii Menu Icon for this channel in MrNick666 post. does anyone know how to make it appear like that on the Wii menu or is that like just a demo pic he made or something. i downloaded and installed his theme pack but the on the menu its still just a black channel.

    Make a homebrew folder in the root of your sd card.

    Inside that folder create a new folder for each homebrew app you want to use.

    In each of those folders, place the appropriate .elf file, and rename it to boot.elf.


    (I´m not sure if the .elf file MUST be renamed, but I do it that way just to be sure)

    @ mysticknight

    I think there is a theme folder for the homebrew launcher included.

    The images are sized to fit them. The channel will still have a black screen, but if your boot.elf at the root of the card is the one for the homebrew launcher, then once you enter the channel, you will see "channels" with pretty pictures.

    So I just install this wad using the TP hack and it will create a channel? Does this work with wad installer/uninstaller, savegame extractor/installer etc?

    ^ yer just use the WAD installer to install it and the uninstaller if you ever wanna remove it.

    and callmebob, i have the themes in the THEME folder that came with the hombrew, what i'm saying is on the site i linked to there seems to be a pic of how the channel would look like on the main menu, i was just wondering if you can get the channel to look like that or if that poster on that forum was just making an image of what he would want if it were ever possible to make a icon.

    So I won't have to use the Twilight Princess disk ever again if I install this? (I bought the GC version, I'll have to borrow the Wii version from my friend).

    Not really or at least not with me , because if I launch the WadUninstaller it uninstalls every Channel created with a wad including the homebrew one.
    So then you need the twillight hack again to install it [​IMG] .
    Apart from that i could launch everything with the homebrew channel just like i could with the TP Hack

    Delete the extra wads from your wad folder. It only uninstalls wads if you have them there.

    Delete the wads from your wad folder then so they don't uninstall
