Why aren't you using the Infobox for this article like is being used on all of the others? I can understand that it's somewhat different, but it's displayed inline with the other loaders and most of which have it (though they are a little outdated!) [[User:Jamesdodd|JD]] 14:15, 6 June 2008 (CEST)

This isn't a question or a bug, so I'm putting it here. It bugs the CRAP out of me that the homebrew channel is blue. Homebrews can range from white wheat ales to the blackest of stouts, but if your homebrew is blue, you've done something very wrong. [[User:RandomFerret|RandomFerret]] 0:54, 7 June 2008 (EST)

:Hey, you're not alone, Randomferret.  I feel the same way.  Home brew is not supposed to be blue unless you've got a smurf infestation under the kitchen sink or the bathroom cabinet where you've hidden the hooch. [[User:Flark|Flark]] 13:27, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

== Update trouble ==
+
:@[[User:Hallowizer|Hallowizer]]: It looks like the Homebrew Channel was previously provided as a burnable disc image (it can be seen [https://web.archive.org/web/20080526200123/http://hbc.hackmii.com/download/ in an archived page] but the download links don't work (and I couldn't find any working versions at [https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://hbc.hackmii.com/dist/* this] or [https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://hbc.hackmii.com/get.php* this] or on the live site)). It's presumably based on [https://hackmii.com/2008/08/open-source-apploader-iso-template/ this template] (which still is live), which looks like a [[signing bug|fakesigned]] disc image that could be modified to launch something else.  That would explain why it doesn't work with [[System Menu 3.3]], and a drivechip would be required for a burned disc image to work.  I don't think it's something that would be feasible to perform nowadays. (Addendum: it looks like the relevant tools for creating such an ISO are found in the github repo (e.g. [https://github.com/fail0verflow/hbc/blob/master/pywii/pywii-tools/injectdol.py injectdol.py])) --[[User:Pokechu22|Pokechu22]] ([[User talk:Pokechu22|talk]]) 21:47, 3 November 2020 (CET)
I've got a bit of trouble updating to beta9. i've used a downgrader (because i updated by mistake) that's worked fine. but when i go to update via the channel it gets to around 20% the cancels. and i can't find a .DOL/.ELF installer for beta9.

== Newer Zelda TP discs won't work anymore? ==
 
I bought a new Zelda The Twilight Princess game for the Wii to install the Twilight Hack. It seems that Nintendo fixed the disc so the homebrew channel or any other loader wont work, it just freezes.(The game starts up and works, it lists the 2 games you can load from, when i go backwards or talk to the man, it just freezes)  I have repeated the installation steps, formatted my sd card, made sure the file i downloaded was named boot.dol and was on the root of my sd card, but no good.  I make sure the wii is 3.4u, so i use the save "twilight-hack-v0.1-beta2.zip"(RZDE)  But nothing, maybe I'm making a mistake, or did Nintendo fix the newer Zelda TP discs?  [[user:crwys|crwys]]

The font is PF Square Sans, a font by the foundry Parachute. It's a commercial font though unfortunately so I can't share it.-- [[User:Soully|Soully]]

== SSBB EU firmware update ==
 
 
 
I'm not sure, this probably needs to be verified, but the newest firmware update on the European release renders at least the homebrew channel useless. Like I said, this needs to be verified. Not that I used the Homebrew Channel at all, though, but still something worth investigating.
 
 
 
Things that stopped working:
 
* Running homebrew
 
* Exiting homebrew channel

== sd card icon ==
 
 
 
i think it is extra to have an sd card icon if you also have an sdhc card icon. i don't think its likely that a program would support sdhc but not support sd. so no icon means not supported at all, sd icon means only sd but no sdhc, and sdhc icon means all supported [[User:Yossi|yossi]] 12:41, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

: Yes, it does work, with the new 3.4 Twilight Hack, just ignore the warning, it's simply there, because 3.4 wasn't out, when the last HBC was made. It should work anyways! chrisis 17:11, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
 
 
 
== All first letters should be upper case in "the homebrew channel"? ==
 
 
 
Is it just me, or should't each word in "the homebrew channel" begin with an upper-case letter like all the official Nintendo channels? (both the hovering text(this one's already "correct"), and the graphic text in the animation of the channel)
 
I think it'd look better following the standard of the other channels.
 
 
 
:I agree its not a huge deal its just one of those pet peaves i guess if thats what you call them. I dont care about grammer much except for capatalizing. Looks professional.

"DVD Method"

I noticed there is currently no information on this page about how the DVD method for installation is performed. Can somebody who is familiar add that? Hallowizer (talk) 06:39, 14 October 2020 (CEST)

@Hallowizer: It looks like the Homebrew Channel was previously provided as a burnable disc image (it can be seen in an archived page but the download links don't work (and I couldn't find any working versions at this or this or on the live site)). It's presumably based on this template (which still is live), which looks like a fakesigned disc image that could be modified to launch something else. That would explain why it doesn't work with System Menu 3.3, and a drivechip would be required for a burned disc image to work. I don't think it's something that would be feasible to perform nowadays. (Addendum: it looks like the relevant tools for creating such an ISO are found in the github repo (e.g. injectdol.py)) --Pokechu22 (talk) 21:47, 3 November 2020 (CET)

Wuphax exploit/loader

Is Wuphax an exploit or loader? It’s at the boundary of being a loader, and it uses an exploit to replace the Mii channel internally. Hallowizer (talk) 06:01, 10 November 2020 (CET)
