Limitations

  • Not all homebrew works when launched from Homebrew Filter

  • Cannot be launched/autobooted from BootMii without modifications.

Flavors

Starting with rev42 the HBF comes in 4 flavors:

  • 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.
