This page gives an overview of released homebrew apps. The Twilight Hack and the new Homebrew Channel (in development) are currently the only ways to run the apps on an unmodified console.

Note to developers

It is important to include a video auto detect routine and a way to return to the loader or restart. Go to the Developer Tips page for more information.
