Has anyone actually tried this out yet? I'm curious to see the results (and I'm too chicken to do it myself). --SandMan 02:13, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Its safe if you have preloader or bootmii as a boot2 replacement installed, 100% safe (and HBC installed but thats almost given). A banner brick, which is what a faulty channel wad can give you (causes a banner crash on loading the system menu which crashes the system menu) can be completely fixed if you can autoboot into HBC, which all you need is bootmii as a boot2 replacement or preloader for. Then just run AnyTitle Deleter DB and delete the title ID you installed and your fine. Or you can use a WAD uninstaller tool to do the same thing but it is not promoted by Wiibrew in the slightest.

"it is not promoted by Wiibrew in the slightest" - niether are any WAD installer tools, other than wadimport, which cannot be used to install custom channels made with this tool. i.e. there is no supported way to install these custom channels. --SifJar 11:12, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
so why is Channel Maker? --Leathl 14:02, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
ChannelMaker and this app itself are perfectly supported, there's just no supported way to install the channels made. If someone could somehow make an installer that would ONLY install custom channels, and not warezed vc/ww WADs, then it'd be OK, but I dont think thats possible, except if you convert the WAD of the custom channel into some new format and then have the installer convert it back and install it. But then you could just convert the warez WADs, so basically, its not possible. But the channels themselves and the channel creation tools are fine. --SifJar 14:53, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
You could just add two lines of code to the WAD M. source to check the number of contents before installing. If more than 3 contents are found, just return an error. --Leathl 19:02, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
Interesting. Then a custom channel installer COULD be made. If someone made one of those, that could not install warez, and also was not heavily the code of a certain coder (I guess you know who), it should definetly be supported here. --SifJar 19:08, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
Yes, it could be made. I can't code in C though, so I can't do it (I can "read" and "edit" C, but not code on my own ;)) --Leathl 19:35, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
Take a look at my Crap Installer, it's a simple hack to wad manager made to install a wad injected into the app.. It contains a stub wad (2MB file, all zeroes) Pc app injects the wad to be installed in it and can send this injected dol to homebrew channel for installation. By the way using wad manager for the purpose of installing nintendo-signed wads&custom wads are perfectly fine. Though as we know, it's not supported here :)

Yeah, it could be an awesome project to do, and it would leave VC and Wiiware completely out and it would also stop everything but stubbed IOS's. It should come with protection though for IOS's, so we should also have it reject title ID's for IOS's and the system menu generically. So no stubs could be installed so it would no longer be a brick tool (or even have the possibility of doing such). (Illinialex24 15:55, 10 November 2009 (UTC))

Aren't base WADs illegal? --PZYR0 19:28, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

No, the ones you can download within the App are legal ones. --Leathl 19:35, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

I need help installing a banner.bin file for customize Mii.--Marth21 23:26, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
