289w ago - Bushing and the rest of the crew over at Wii Brew have released the first public beta of the Wii Homebrew Channel. Once installed, the channel allows users to launch homebrew applications without the need of executing the Twilight Hack each time.
The Homebrew Channel is a channel for launching Wii homebrew applications without the need to run the Twilight Hack first. It will list apps stored and organized on an SD card in a nice little GUI, which you can very easily customize with descriptions and shiny little .png icons all by yourself if you want.
You can also launch homebrew apps via TCP (with a correctly configured PC) or USB Gecko. Both of those built in options make it extremely convenient for testing out new code, as well as a general purpose homebrew launcher.
There are multiple ways to install the channel onto your Wii. The first and recommended method...
297w ago - Last month, Twiizers gave a video demonstration of the ability to launch unofficial applications directly from the Wii channel menu. The homebrew channel demo has now been released to the public, and can be run on any Wii that has the Twilight Hack installed.
Currently, the demo has usage time limit of 10 minutes, and once the channel has expired it cannot be reinstalled... so it's suggested you use the allocated ten minutes wisely.
Installation and usage instructions are provided below:
* Download the installer at the link below.
* Place the installer file on the root of your SD card.
* Rename the file to boot.elf
* Run the Twilight Hack, and allow the installer to load.
* READ THE DISCLAIMER! In the very unlikely case your Wii should be bricked by the installer, this will let you know where you stand in regards to Team Twiizers.
* Press the RESET button on your Wii.
