The HomebrewFilter features the following functions:

  • 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 themes, languages, and fonts for HomebrewFilter online
  • On-the-fly updates via network connectivity
  • Parental controls
  • Ability to adjust screen size
  • Ability to edit the meta.xml of homebrew
  • Debugging WiFi and SD-Card (SD//config/HBF/debug.txt)
  • Ability to be run in a cIOS

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.
