Could you tell me how you got the HBB to update it self?--[[User:Hunterm|HUN73R /\/\.]] 03:28, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
 +
: It firstly connects to the internet and checks a text file which contains the file size of the boot.dol. If this file size doesn't match the size the user currently has then it prompts the user to update. Then it just downloads the new boot.dol and meta.xml files to the correct location. There is a download example here: [[Homebrew Browser#NetSend Example + HTTP Download Example ]]

I have used this program successfully many time launched from the SD card. I now wish to move my HomeBrew to my USB Drive. My first attempt was to have a WBFS partition fist with a Fat32 second on the Drive. That did not work so I tried moving the Fat32 to the first partition. That started to work but each time I Download an App the Wii crashes with a Stack Dump... Can this app run from a Fat32 partition of a USB Drive? Secondly with the WBFS as the second partition my WiiFlow USB loader would not see my files. But that is for another PAGE.--[[User:Capple123|capple123]] 02:10, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

I haven't done much lately with this but now I have a working compiler again so the installer is getting closer. The channel on the other hand is killing me. I am stuck with getting weird debug info like HBB used to give. Any help on how to read those Teknecal? [[User:Pinball wizard|Pinball wizard]] 01:19, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

: Does it say like debug [1] Not owner? I think that the fix is to format the SD card. --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 13:19, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

+
:: It isn't debug info I put it wrong. I meant to say Code Dumps. It looks to be all hex code. Check your pms too. [[User:Pinball wizard|Pinball wizard]] 19:06, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
| [[AnyRegion Changer]] || Add extra barrier to prevent unsafe usage

::: The installer is getting closer. I have all the code checking out okay but I think that my development environment is having problems. Closer now though. Still have the channel issues. Hoping to maybe release before I die, lol. [[User:Pinball wizard|Pinball wizard]] 19:35, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
|-
+
:::: I'm now doing debugging on the installer. If I can figure the channel issue out and approval from Teknecal, I should release soon.*@Teknecal, The issue with the channel is that it shows the kind of code dump as what you have at the end of your 1 year anniversary video. I am going to add in some debug code to see if it is the channel launch code or HBB code. Do you know what IOS HBB runs on? [[User:Pinball wizard|Pinball wizard]] 20:39, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
|  AnyTitle Deleter mod || Add extra barrier to prevent unsafe usage
+
: I'm cleaning up code for the installer now, commenting out debug info and about to lock down the installer to the final channel pieces now instead of anything you want. I need to put some placeholder logo spots and finish recoding the code for the channel. I have a list of testers and should be ready to beta test in a week. @Teknecal, Don't worry about anything with your app just yet. I think I found the issue in the channel launching check your pms for details on it. After beta tests I will shoot you up for approval and I should have release 1.0 out very soon.

What's up with this? I'd love to have this as a channel, it'd save a step. [[User:Dashxdr|Dashxdr]] 03:59, 13 October 2010 (CEST)
===LibGameLoad===
+
: No idea what happened with it. [[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 09:44, 31 October 2010 (CET)
"Game Load" is a utility listed in HBB. Really, it's a demo for libgameload. Is the source code for libgameload anywhere? I can't seem to find it or the demo anywhere but HBB. This looks like something I want to play around with, but it doesn't seem to exist. Anyone have details? [[User:Bobpaul|Bobpaul]]
 
: I don't believe the source is available but here is a thread that the author has replied in: http://www.tehskeen.com/forums/showthread.php?p=44500. Also the author has their own website at http://www.cashman-productions.fr.nf. --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 23:14, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
 
  
===DVD-X===
+
=== Search ===
Does the DVD-X Installer download come with PatchMii so it can install the patchmii version for modchip users?  or is patchmii a seperate app you have to install altogether?
+
Umh... There is so many apps available, and no search. Search would be really useful! --[[User:Error|Error]] 14:17, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
: PatchMii is a separate application for modchip users which can be found here: http://hackmii.com/2008/08/libdi-and-the-dvdx-installer/ --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 08:46, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
+
: I'll do something like searching by letter, e.g. A, B, C will bring you directly to those applications. --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 04:55, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

=== Better distinguish between downloaded/HBB apps ===
I quote this from the Homebrew Channel/Bugs page " but I prefer to leave my WiiConnect24 on, as I get messages from Nintendo and the Homebrew Browser, and I like to be notified when they arrive." Is it true that HBB gives out notices? If so I have yet to receive one. [[User:Pinball wizard|Pinball wizard]] 00:09, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
+
It would be possible, meta.xml being an xml file, to insert extra fields into it, without too many things exploding, surely. For instance, it could be possible to insert some hbb specific fields, for instance:
: Yes it's true but firstly you need to add hbb@codemii.com to your Wii address book. A few days later you'll get a confirmation email and then an email when applications have been updated. --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 08:42, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

The HBB used to work fine,, But i don't know what i did, patch mii dvdx maybe?(thats the only thing i can think of. but now the HBB doesn't work... it says connecting to server, server connected now loading homebrew browser and then it restarts homebrew channel. Or if it can't connect it says error (i am not home now so  am not sure but i think error-ret 115) and it says retrying (infinately until i get a code dump error.)
+
=== Update all apps ===
any Idea how i could fix this?
+
There should be an option to update all apps, and perhaps also an option to turn off the Wii afterwards. This way I can hit the button and go to bed with no worries.--[[User:SkiDragon|SkiDragon]] 13:00, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Why do you have to wait a few days before HBB accepts your message board request? You don't have to do it manually do you? You should look into automating it. -- [[User:GamingMedley.com|GamingMedley.com]] 04:02, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
+
=== More icons ===
 +
Replace the wii zapper icon for apps with a button called "more peripherals" that has information such as usb support. --[[User:Toagac|Toagac]] 12:33, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

: I'm hoping to have a little arrow to move the icons to the left so you can scroll through them. --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 00:44, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

This is a bit of a lot to ask and probably not possible due to the [[Homebrew Channel]] developers lack of openness, but I think it would be cool if the Homebrew Browser would update the Homebrew Channel's banner according to new Homebrew apps, similar to the [[Wii Shop Channel]]. I do not expect this to actually happen but just to get a suggestion out there just in case :). --[[User:Mjbauer95|Mjbauer95]] 00:41, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

=== File Size Adjustment? ===
I don't see much of a need to do this in the immediate future but you could add the ability to change the icons for HBC in HBB.

Somehow this always confuses me but before I download Homebrew it tells me the size of the Homebrew app and then when I download it, it tells me the download is smaller than what I saw previously. I then figured out that the download is zipped and the file size in the description is the extracted size. Maybe use this format in the description instead?

I found a minor bug that you could fix in 0.3.9.

If you add an app to queue then open up the "Download/Delete Queue" page, the app you selected will be there. But if you delete it from the list (By pressing -) and open the Download/Delete Queue page again, the name and short description will still be there, but not the icon. Again a very minor bug, but one that should be fixed.

I also use a USB-HDD with a FAT32 on the 1st partition, with no SD Card whatsoever (my card slot is defective), and I noticed that HBB takes several minutes to update all the app icons.

===Not recognizing my homebrew apps?===
+
=== I can't get the HBB to work! {{Talk:Homebrew Browser/Received}} ===
I've added a lot of apps manually, which HBB doesn't recognize at all. Is it possible for you to recognize multiple versions of the same file? Also, I use custom meta.xml files for each app. Is this how you determine whether or not I have the app? If so, I suggest it be changed to check just the <version>/<release_date> tag(s) of the XML file, and nothing else. If possible, after installing the app, only update the <version>/<release_date> tag(s), leaving the rest to be the custom data (if it is custom). It may be too hard to determine whether or not it's custom, because I imagine it would include a database of all previous meta.xml files, so maybe you could simply update just the <version>/<release_date> and maybe <long_description> for apps whether that's absolutely necessary. That got a little off-topic, and can probably be split to another suggestion altogether, but mainly: is this why or why doesn't HBB recognize all of my applications? -- [[User:GamingMedley.com|GamingMedley.com]] 04:53, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

[[User:Oibaf|Oibaf]] 01:00, 5 December 2014 (CET)
:::Neither of those solutions is very elegant, and, although I like the header redirect it's not very scalable. One possible solution is to implement mirrors.  The main download site would be codemii, but if that returned a 404 or if the site was unavailable the HBB would fall back to one of the mirrors.  This avoids having to manually insert redirects every time an app can't/won't be hosted on codemii.  It does, however, have the dirty side-effect of requiring more code and generating bad requests for the codemii site.  Regardless of our suggested solutions, it seems unlikely any of them will be implemented. It's not cost effective to put all that work in for a single package. If people want wiiLinux then they already know about it.  If they already know about it they'll be able to find it, download it, and, install it, ''manually''. -- [[User:MetaFight|MetaFight]] 04:54, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Apps

Wanted Apps

If you want an app added, list it in the following format:

* [[App name]] version

If the App Name is different from the page name on WiiBrew, use the format:

* [[Page name|App name]] version


Apps deliberately not included in standard HBB Repo

This list could change, and was not made by Teknecal

Title Reason
AnyRegion Changer Included in lukegb's repository
AnyTitle Deleter and AnyTitle Deleter MOD Included in lukegb's repository
Channel File Manager Add extra barrier to prevent unsafe usage
Dop-SHOP Add extra barrier to prevent unsafe usage
Mii Channel Updater Add extra barrier to prevent unsafe usage (outdated)
Preloader Priiloader included in lukegb's repository
Starfall Add extra barrier to prevent unsafe usage (outdated)
Wii Gamecube Homebrew Launcher 0.2.3 Requires additional installation steps
WiiSCU Included in lukegb's repository
WAD Manager Add extra barrier to prevent unsafe usage
Wii Linux Too large

Questions

Could you tell me how you got the HBB to update it self?--HUN73R /\/\. 03:28, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

It firstly connects to the internet and checks a text file which contains the file size of the boot.dol. If this file size doesn't match the size the user currently has then it prompts the user to update. Then it just downloads the new boot.dol and meta.xml files to the correct location. There is a download example here: Homebrew Browser#NetSend Example + HTTP Download Example

I have used this program successfully many time launched from the SD card. I now wish to move my HomeBrew to my USB Drive. My first attempt was to have a WBFS partition fist with a Fat32 second on the Drive. That did not work so I tried moving the Fat32 to the first partition. That started to work but each time I Download an App the Wii crashes with a Stack Dump... Can this app run from a Fat32 partition of a USB Drive? Secondly with the WBFS as the second partition my WiiFlow USB loader would not see my files. But that is for another PAGE.--capple123 02:10, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

How do you add custom repositories to the HBB? Deozaan 06:36, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Here is the guide to adding a repo http://www.codemii.com/hbb-repositories/ --Teknecal 04:55, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

How I can tell a new version of my program? wilco2009 —Preceding undated comment added 08:27, 6 September 2011 (CEST).

Released Apps Page

What about moving the apps section to another page? (I mean here on Wiibrew) The list is getting a little long, no? -- Tj cool

YES! IT DOES ITS WAY TOO BIG! Randomdude 16:48, 16 September 2010 (CEST)

Homebrew Browser Channel

I haven't done much lately with this but now I have a working compiler again so the installer is getting closer. The channel on the other hand is killing me. I am stuck with getting weird debug info like HBB used to give. Any help on how to read those Teknecal? Pinball wizard 01:19, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Does it say like debug [1] Not owner? I think that the fix is to format the SD card. --Teknecal 13:19, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
It isn't debug info I put it wrong. I meant to say Code Dumps. It looks to be all hex code. Check your pms too. Pinball wizard 19:06, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
The installer is getting closer. I have all the code checking out okay but I think that my development environment is having problems. Closer now though. Still have the channel issues. Hoping to maybe release before I die, lol. Pinball wizard 19:35, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm now doing debugging on the installer. If I can figure the channel issue out and approval from Teknecal, I should release soon.*@Teknecal, The issue with the channel is that it shows the kind of code dump as what you have at the end of your 1 year anniversary video. I am going to add in some debug code to see if it is the channel launch code or HBB code. Do you know what IOS HBB runs on? Pinball wizard 20:39, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm cleaning up code for the installer now, commenting out debug info and about to lock down the installer to the final channel pieces now instead of anything you want. I need to put some placeholder logo spots and finish recoding the code for the channel. I have a list of testers and should be ready to beta test in a week. @Teknecal, Don't worry about anything with your app just yet. I think I found the issue in the channel launching check your pms for details on it. After beta tests I will shoot you up for approval and I should have release 1.0 out very soon. Pinball wizard 02:48, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

What's up with this? I'd love to have this as a channel, it'd save a step. Dashxdr 03:59, 13 October 2010 (CEST)

No idea what happened with it. Teknecal 09:44, 31 October 2010 (CET)

Search

Umh... There is so many apps available, and no search. Search would be really useful! --Error 14:17, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

I'll do something like searching by letter, e.g. A, B, C will bring you directly to those applications. --Teknecal 04:55, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Better distinguish between downloaded/HBB apps

It would be possible, meta.xml being an xml file, to insert extra fields into it, without too many things exploding, surely. For instance, it could be possible to insert some hbb specific fields, for instance: <hbb:repository>lukegb</hbb:repository> <hbb:downloaded>true</hbb:downloaded> <hbb:lastversion>xyzabc</hbb:lastversion>

Update all apps

There should be an option to update all apps, and perhaps also an option to turn off the Wii afterwards. This way I can hit the button and go to bed with no worries.--SkiDragon 13:00, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

More icons

Replace the wii zapper icon for apps with a button called "more peripherals" that has information such as usb support. --Toagac 12:33, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm hoping to have a little arrow to move the icons to the left so you can scroll through them. --Teknecal 00:44, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Multiple download threads

I would really like to see this app use multiple threads to download. Downloading files can be painfully slow. :). --Sonicsleep 03:54, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Classic Support

Could classic controller support be added? Bsltiger 07:53, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

I'll look into it. --Teknecal 00:44, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
I hope you can find a way to add it in :) --MegaSuperab (talk) 18:42, 27 June 2016 (CEST)

HBC Themes

Add a new tab for all the Homebrew Channel Themes. Randomdude 23:49, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

I agree, there are many of us over here making these "Awesome" themes and would like an easier way for people to see how "Awesome" they really are. --Abeckring 06:52, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
In progress, it'll be a repo of HBC themes and I'll add a "fake" app in Utilities which will explain how to access the repo. --Teknecal 14:02, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
v0.3.9 test version here: http://www.codemii.com/hbb.v0.3.9.test.dol, HBC Themes are accessible via the Repo named "HBC Themes" (Settings page 3, Use Other Repositories). Let me know if there are any issues and also let me know if you have a >4GB device and if HBB picks up the right amount of free space. --Teknecal 01:28, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
How come some themes don't show up in the repository? --Abeckring 04:39, 2 September 2010 (CEST)
I just have to add the rest that were added to WiiBrew since about 1-2 weeks ago which I'll do in the next day or so. --Teknecal 10:35, 2 September 2010 (CEST)
Is there any possibility of putting themes in that aren't allowed on wiibrew? --Abeckring 23:34, 11 September 2010 (CEST)
No, probably not. --bg4545 01:42, 12 September 2010 (CEST)
Probably! Randomdude 05:04, 21 October 2010 (CEST)

HBB Themes

For the next version you should add theming, just like what the HBC has. It would be cool to have a custom HBB. --Abeckring 23:39, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

File Size Adjustment?

Somehow this always confuses me but before I download Homebrew it tells me the size of the Homebrew app and then when I download it, it tells me the download is smaller than what I saw previously. I then figured out that the download is zipped and the file size in the description is the extracted size. Maybe use this format in the description instead? "1.0MB (0.59MB Zipped)" --Wildgoosespeeder 23:48, 4 January 2011 (CET)

Translation

What about make HBB translatable? I could translate it in Italian or in Esperanto... ----→ Airon Ĉ 16:51, 13 August 2011 (CEST)

Games by type

Is it possible to divide games by type, in order to make the list smaller? It is impossible to scroll all that list! ----→ Airon Ĉ 16:51, 13 August 2011 (CEST)

jump n' bump not installing correctly OPEN

application says it's done when it's completed downloading but when I look in the installed app section or through the app list it says it has not it also does not show up in the homebrew channel. Popman 12:01, 22 May 2011 (CEST) discovered source of error boot.dol downloads with the name BOOT.DOL and so is not detected.

immediately shows download button after attempting to install. checked boot.dol and it comes up as 0 bytes! -- Konna280 21:42, 16 January 2012 (CET)

Game downloads but not installed RECEIVED

For example the game Alien Breed downloads but is not stored and the ‘download’ button is still available after two attempts. The Game date is 1970 and so last in the list! The download counter also reads 'ws' and not the expected '0' zero - so maybe one or both of these things break the normal install route. --Titmouse 21:48, 2 December 2010 (CET)

Should be fixed now. --Teknecal 09:52, 3 December 2010 (CET)

Corrupted Icon Image OPEN

The image on NewoShooter 1.26 crashes the homebrew browser when I select it from the list. When selected the image appears corrupted under the game title, then the application locks up. I'm not sure if its because I created it with microsoft paint in windows Vista. I have the latest version of HBB and 4.3 install on my normal wii. Owen 02:04, 16 January 2011 (CET)

The image seems ok it's just URL text goes over the buffer I had set, I've corrected it now, it should be fixed in 1-2 days (because of server cache). --Teknecal 14:18, 17 January 2011 (CET)

Queue Bug? RECEIVED

I found a minor bug that you could fix in 0.3.9. If you add an app to queue then open up the "Download/Delete Queue" page, the app you selected will be there. But if you delete it from the list (By pressing -) and open the Download/Delete Queue page again, the name and short description will still be there, but not the icon. Again a very minor bug, but one that should be fixed. Keep up the good work!--Jrcolonial98 19:30, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

USB-HDD works, but icon download is extremely slow compared to SD RECEIVED

I also use a USB-HDD with a FAT32 on the 1st partition, with no SD Card whatsoever (my card slot is defective), and I noticed that HBB takes several minutes to update all the app icons. On a friend's Wii, I could see that this process takes only a few seconds, but unlike me, his HBB is in his SD Card. This has been like this since the days of HBB 0.3.5, and as of HBB 0.3.8, it hasn't changed. In spite of this, HBB works as expected, and code dumps are rare, but do occur, occasionally. --Friiloader 23:53, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

I wonder if v0.3.9a is better now? Teknecal 09:44, 31 October 2010 (CET)

Hangs at Parsing Homebrew List RECEIVED

Any time I try to use a repo other than codemii it hangs at Parsing Homebrew List. If I hit 2 it says "Reverting to CodeMii.com repository." but hangs there. I've tried all of the repos at least 5 times, every time changing the settings back manually, or just replacing the folder in app entirely. One time Lukegb's loaded fine, I didn't do anything different. 4068401 21:50, 3 October 2010 (CEST)

I've removed the 2 non-working repos. Teknecal 09:44, 31 October 2010 (CET)

I can't get the HBB to work! RECEIVED

When I load the HBB app everything works except that when I click 'Download' it just freezes and nothinhg happends. How do i fix this? --Boondox 23:02, 1 September 2010 (CEST)

Can you try removing all other controllers apart from the Wiimote and remove any USB devices you might have? If that doesn't work, can you try and format you SD card after you back it up? --Teknecal 10:41, 2 September 2010 (CEST)

Something Horribly Wrong

Nothing works at all as of today (7 November 2010). Doesn't function properly on 2 different Wii's, writing to SD or to USB drive. Updates seem to be coming from an incorrect server and are out of date, and don't even extract properly. Functionality utterly broken at the moment. Dashxdr 18:29, 7 November 2010 (CET)

Not sure what the underlying cause is. When I try to update Pacman through the HBB it installs 1.01, not the latest 1.03. Dashxdr 22:12, 7 November 2010 (CET)
Seems like pacman was under the folder "Pacman", I changed it back and it should work now. --Teknecal 09:51, 8 November 2010 (CET)
That fixed it, thanks. Was the issue on my end? When I upload a new zipfile, should the directory be named "pacman" and not "Pacman"? Anyway feel free to delete this entire incident from this talk page. Dashxdr 13:41, 8 November 2010 (CET)
The issue was on our server. In this case, yep you should zip it up as "pacman" but I'll always double check folders from now on. --Teknecal 10:50, 9 November 2010 (CET)
One other note, the HBB seems to scan the VFAT partition on my USB hard drive before it does anything. I've got thousands of files on it so it takes a LONG time. It would be great if this "feature" could be turned off. HBB ought to just snoop around the apps tree and nothing else. Dashxdr 20:14, 8 November 2010 (CET)
I think it's because of the free space function as it uses statvfs("usb:/",&fiData) to get the block size, blocks free and blocks total. You can turn this off in Settings -> Show SD card space & Check free space. Just to confirm does this happens when HBB first loads the GUI? Let me know if turning off those settings helps? Also is there a quicker way than using statvfs? --Teknecal 10:50, 9 November 2010 (CET)
You're right, turning off the check free space + show free space fixes the long pause when the HBB is first launched. But still for some reason there is a long delay during the extraction of any downloaded app, no matter how small. I'm just using a USB hard drive, there is no SD card installed at all.

Mod file is not played

In the last release (0.3.9e) the loop.mod file is not played. The mod support seems broken. Ogg files are instead played. Oibaf 01:00, 5 December 2014 (CET)
