The Homebrew Channel Public BETA released for Wii!

50°
330w 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.

Downloads: Homebrew Channel Standalone ELF / Disc Image (USA) / Disc Image (EUR) / Disc Image (JAP)

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...

Wii Homebrew Channel Banner video available!

200°
331w ago - Marcan has released a video showing the banner for the Homebrew Channel.

The entire banner, down to the last byte, was developed using homebrew tools - no leaked Nintendo SDK utilities were employed, not even to reverse engineer them.

Everything was done by staring at many other banners (or rather, at the files that compose them) and reverse engineering the System Menu code that plays them back.




 

Wii USB Mass Storage Tester released!

50°
332w ago - Sven Peter has released his USB storage device tester for Wii homebrew.

This application searches for attached devices, tries to list the files on there and then writes a test.txt file to the device.

This is a major step forward for the scene but Sven does warn on his blog linked at the top of his article.

ANY DEVICE THAT HAS NOT A FAT FILESYSTEM ON IT WILL RESULT IN DATA CORRUPTION.

So be sure to read the instructions carefully and use at your own risk!
 

Wii Linux Proof-of-Concept v0.3 released!

50°
337w ago - Today a new version of the Wii Linux Proof-of-Concept with read and write support for the front SD card slot has been released.

To quote: Thanks to the bits of information collected and made public by the wiibrew.org and libogc communities we have been able to write a block driver to use SD cards through the Nintendo Wii front SD card slot.

The driver provides read /write support and performance is fine (2.1 MB/s reads on my normal SD cards) compared to the classic SD card adapter driver. As in the last posts, we have released a new version of the wii-linux Proof of Concept to show our progress in the kernel side.

Now the door is open for more promising stuff...
