HomebrewFilter rev47   Recently updated !


HiconomebrewFilter is a homebrew launcher for Wii and vWii

== About ==
The HomebrewFilter is an drop-in replacement for the Homebrew Channel – it allows Homebrew applications to be loaded and sorted, among other more outstanding opportunities.

Compared to the Homebrew Channel, the HomebrewFilter features the following additional functionality (Wii version has several more):

  • load Homebrew from SD, USB or both
  • load Homebrew from FAT, NTFS or EXT2/3/4 formatted devices
  • categorize Homebrew (without the need to change directories)
  • download additional content directly from within The HomebrewFilter (Fonts, Themes, Languages)
  • on-the-fly updates via network connectivity
  • child-lock mode
  • screen adjustment options
  • edit meta.xml from within the HomebrewFilter
  • debugging WiFi and SD-Card (SD//config/HBF/debug.txt)

=== Installation ===
Run the Installer from any Loader (HBC, whatever). Requirements: HW_AHBPROT access or IOS236.

For the standalone Version install the Forwarder using a WAD Manager and place the app-folder in SD/USB:/apps/

=== Flavours ===
Starting with rev42 the HBF comes in 4 flavours:

  • Wii Installer: installs the fullchannel for Wii (Path: /apps/HomebrewFilter/)
  • Wii Standalone: standalone boot.dol with forwarderchannel for Wii (Path: /apps/HomebrewFilter.Standalone/)
  • vWii Installer: installs fullchannel for vWii (Path: /apps/HomebrewFilter.vWii/)
  • vWii Standalone: standalone boot.dol with forwarderchannel for vWii (Path: /apps/HomebrewFilter.vWii.Standalone/)

All versions are updatable via online-update. Don’t change paths – will result in non-working updates/forwarders.

Don’t install vWii version on Wii and vice versa (channels won’t load else).

Detailed information in German can be found in the Wiiki.

=== ChangeLog ===

//rev47:
- build against libruntimeiospatch 1.5.3
- rename "SD Gecko" to "SD Card Debug Log" in Settings
- rename "Wifi Gecko" to "Wifi Debug Log" in Settings
- only scan list of available IOS once per session
- disable 'SD Card Gecko' by default (debug log on SD Card),
  because it's causing a MASSIVE slow down when opening an
  app's details dialog the first time in a session, when
  using a shitty class 2 or whatever SD Card
- fixed that newly build vWii forwarder accidently was the
  same than the Wii forwarder
- fixup BootMii (IOS) detection on Wii
- fixup showing device icon for apps
- add ISO0 (any version) to list of known stub IOS
  (it's a custom IOS installed by several old apps)
- update german translation
