:@[[User:Hallowizer|Hallowizer]]: It looks like the Homebrew Channel was previously provided as a burnable disc image (it can be seen [https://web.archive.org/web/20080526200123/http://hbc.hackmii.com/download/ in an archived page] but the download links don't work (and I couldn't find any working versions at [https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://hbc.hackmii.com/dist/* this] or [https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://hbc.hackmii.com/get.php* this] or on the live site)).  It's presumably based on [https://hackmii.com/2008/08/open-source-apploader-iso-template/ this template] (which still is live), which looks like a [[signing bug|fakesigned]] disc image that could be modified to launch something else.  That would explain why it doesn't work with [[System Menu 3.3]], and a drivechip would be required for a burned disc image to work.  I don't think it's something that would be feasible to perform nowadays.

Is Wuphax an exploit or loader? It’s at the boundary of being a loader, and it uses an exploit to replace the Mii channel internally. [[User:Hallowizer|Hallowizer]] ([[User talk:Hallowizer|talk]]) 06:01, 10 November 2020 (CET)
Are there any plans to have a full uninstaller, or is it just going to stay there until Nintendo decides to take the offensive against it? - <font color="#de0033">[[User:Toumei|トウメイ]]</font>

Thanks for releasing this guys...I can have my Zelda save back on my Wii again :)
 
 
 
That said, I think I've found a couple of issues.
 
* My Ninty LAN adaptor doesn't seem to be supported as the "networking" always fails. No biggie for now, but it'd be nice to mention it somewhere to save others trying if it's not actually supported for now.
 
:iirc we had reports of a working lan adapter. recheck the network settings in sysmenu/options. does the icon on the lower right stop blinking? [[User:Dhewg|dhewg]] 05:38, 25 May 2008 (PDT)
 
 
 
* Booting ELFs from the menu fails when my GameCube memory card is in the slot. There's at least a note about this in one of the readmes/FAQs, but I'm intrigued as to why loading from the SD fails when it's present? It seems to load the icons and meta data fine, but just sits at 0% when I actual click the load button.
 
:thats a bug in the libraries used, should be fixed soon [[User:Dhewg|dhewg]] 05:38, 25 May 2008 (PDT)
 
 
 
* Doesn't respond to the power button on the remote. Trivial, but just something I noticed.
 
:yes, we know about that one too, we'll look into it [[User:Dhewg|dhewg]] 05:38, 25 May 2008 (PDT)

"DVD Method"

I noticed there is currently no information on this page about how the DVD method for installation is performed. Can somebody who is familiar add that? Hallowizer (talk) 06:39, 14 October 2020 (CEST)

@Hallowizer: It looks like the Homebrew Channel was previously provided as a burnable disc image (it can be seen in an archived page but the download links don't work (and I couldn't find any working versions at this or this or on the live site)). It's presumably based on this template (which still is live), which looks like a fakesigned disc image that could be modified to launch something else. That would explain why it doesn't work with System Menu 3.3, and a drivechip would be required for a burned disc image to work. I don't think it's something that would be feasible to perform nowadays. (Addendum: it looks like the relevant tools for creating such an ISO are found in the github repo (e.g. injectdol.py)) --Pokechu22 (talk) 21:47, 3 November 2020 (CET)

Wuphax exploit/loader

Is Wuphax an exploit or loader? It’s at the boundary of being a loader, and it uses an exploit to replace the Mii channel internally. Hallowizer (talk) 06:01, 10 November 2020 (CET)
