    I just installed the Wii U Homebrew Launcher Channel using the traditional way and by watching this tutorial:



    It worked perfectly fine until I installed the app store to my Homebrew and started downloading more apps. I first tried the new HBL2HBC app, which worked. But when I launched HBL again, the only thing that appear was an error sign telling me to shut off my Wii U and try again. I tried over and over again, but nothing different. How do I fix this? Thanks!

    Are you in sig patches? You need sig patches to launch the app.

    Yea, I installed it and was able to use it the first few times using fw.img. See tutorial to see what I did

    The video isn't very helpful figuring this out. Did you launch fw.img each time you turn on your wii u? And each time you exit vWii?

    I think so. I mean, how do you LAUNCH it? I put it in the root of my SD Card. Am I forgetting a step? :O How do I launch it?

    You need to launch fw.img each time you want to boot the non legit channel.
    Thats why its almost pointless to use without cbhc as you need sig patches in the first place to launch the app.
    You might as well stick with haxchi to boot homebrew if you don't use cbhc

    Hmm, ok. I'll try to use haxchi. But I already installed the Homebrew Launcher Channel on my Wii U, how do I uninstall it? Sorry if I sound like a complete fool right now. :(

    Go to system settings and uninstall like any other app
