Please place all support questions here.

Q: When I run the gc-linux package included in hbc_apps.tar.gz it stops at "Freeing unused kernel memory: 164k init", doesn't show a login prompt and USB keyboard doesn't work. What I am doing wrong?

A: You are not doing anything wrong. The gc-linux package included in hbc_apps.tar.gz (MD5: a2394731e2f65aee741100bed1cd14a0) is version 0.2, not version 0.4 as the package claims. That version doesn't support USB keyboards and only shows a login prompt when used in combination with a USB Gecko adapter. If you want to test the real gc-linux PoC version 0.4 you can grab it from www.gc-linux.org while someone takes the time to fix the hbc_apps.tar.gz package.

Q: After installing the Homebrew Channel using the twilight princess hack, will the Homebrew channel still function if I delete the twilight princess hack and reinstall my original save file?

A: Yes. The Homebrew Channel is installed onto the Wii internal memory, no longer requiring the twilight hack save, unless the channel is uninstalled.

Q: Will the source code be released?

Q: Is there a way to prevent the Homebrew Channel - and the time spent using it - from being logged on the Wii message board?

A: No.
