meta.xml Example


Boot using normal methods *cough* HBC *cough*. Once running, will run itself. To quit, type "//quit" at the end of the web-address, so - "192.168.0.X//quit", will now return to HBC

Place your html files in /data/web/ on the root of your sd card, must be inserted before the app is loaded. Use data.zip for demo files.

There is no directory listing and your homepage must be called "index.html"

Bug fixing

Bug Status Priority
Directory traversal vulnerabilities allows people to

sneak out of the web root. Ops, now people can "borrow"
all those "borrowed" games you also happen to have on the

Waiting High
Fixing of folders to index.html is hardcoded and not

heuristic and will fail for sub-directories.

Waiting Low
500 pages uses 404 lenghts Done Medium
Indention issues, try just writing it like "else if"

and don't add any extra indention, it keeps the indention
