Apploader

From WiiBrew

Apploaders are small stubs bundled with every app, responsible for loading the rest of the app and executing it. For this reason, all homebrew titles installed to NAND must have an unofficial apploader. An open-source apploader is available from HackMii.

One common apploader is the NANDLoader, used to boot most channels.

Dragon Quest X has a special apploader that loads from a WFS USB. For vWii compatibility, a special 1-513 title comes preinstalled on all vWiis with this apploader, as a complete Ancast Image.
