mail: see LisezMoi (readme)

Wii Homebrew Launcher is an interface similar to that of the wii menu. It allows you to start homebrew stored on your SD-card in the wii front sd slot. Each program is represented by its own customizable "channel"


  • Copy boot.elf to an SD-card
  • Create a folder named homebrew on the root of the SD-card. (X:\homebrew)
  • For each homebrew:
    • Create a folder in the homebrew folder(Max 8 symbols long)(X:\homebrew\12345678)
    • Place The elf in that folder and name it "boot.elf"
    • OPTIONAL: For a custom name: add a "title.txt" containing the channel's title
    • OPTIONAL: For a custom image: add a "title.bmp", it has to be a 24-bits bitmap of 132x95 pixels.
  • Any files related to a homebrew can be put anywhere, despite what it may seem in the example.


It can only be launched from the Twilight Hack or the Homebrew Channel. It requires the use of a Gamecube controller.

  • D-pad: Select a channel
  • A: Launch the channel
  • R/L: Change page (more then 11 homebrew channels)
  • Z: Refresh the channel list.


To install a translation unzip the archive in the root of your SD card.

To make your own translation, create a file called lang.ini and put it in the system\config\ folder. Each line is a message to be translated. Only modify what is on the right of the = sign.

Available translation are:


  • Homebrew pack - 8 Wii homebrew apps in the correct format for the launcher (including images)
  • Custom Icon Pack - A custom icon pack set with 29 icons covering all (I think) Wii homebrew icons (plus some wishes!)
  • Custom GRRLib Pack - 1 Wii homebrew app in the correct format for the launcher (including images)
