I don't really get it. Isn't this the same as WAD Manager? -- twofive, 08:01 GMT+1 5.Apr 2009

It is the non-warez (thus WiiBrew friendly) Version of it. Slash 10:38, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
I guess that means it supports 4.0? Beegee7730 11:07, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

You could use HBC. --Crayon 01:42, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
You need the .dol file, a meta.xml file, and an icon.png file. For my download custom for the HBC, Click Here —Preceding unsigned comment added by Waterlubber (talkcontribs) 00:17, 30 May 2012 (CEST)

is it possible To Install Any Un-Official WADS With This? Or No, Due To WiiBrew Piracy Paranoia--Calthephenom 19:06, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Lets say no. Almost all "un-official" wads are modified Nintendo wads, therefor illegal. iv read there are few legal ones out there. but rare, i have yet to see or hear of one other then hbc. and it is not "WiiBrew paranoia", Programs for piracy are the reason for the 4.2 update. at least in my opinion. granted i believe in the right to backup. but lets say 80-90% of the people that also believe in it, pirate. and on a side note. i think the next Nintendo update, witch Will probably have some cool new features, will be the roughest for homebrew yet. i think rough homebrewed waters are ahead. =( --Hatredg0d 19:31, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
No, because it restricts itself to already-authorized titles and isn't programmed by an idiot. As for the 4.2 update, if it was purely to kill piracy then why is the most dangerous part of the update specifically to kill BootMii? You can't separate homebrew and piracy in Nintendo's eyes; both of them require violating Nintendo's control of the software stack. WiiBrew avoids talking about WADs specifically because they are primarily used to package official software first and customized software second. Only recently have there been fully redistributable homebrew WADs. Creating them is a pain, and the only benefit is to those who can't run Bootmii/boot2 (for insta-HBC access) or don't have an SD card and thus need to install homebrew on the NAND. (not the best of ideas, of course). Kmeisthax 14:19, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

I Am Against Piracy (i don't count backups of games you bought piracy), Mainly Because, As A Coder, I See Where They're Coming from, but if nintendo doesn't see a difference between homebrew and piracy, why should be go out of our way to kill piracy, so they can Perma-Shut-us-down(*Cough*This*Cough) i don't think we should care what ninty thinks, because in their eyes, we are pirates--Calthephenom 21:48, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Ohai shift? --SquidMan 21:13, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
The 4.2 update was only directed against homebrew. BootMii as boot2 gets deleted, the bug used to install HBC and BootMii got fixed(they use another one now) and bannerbomb was partly fixed. While the exploits mostly used to get the trucha bug back, were not fixed at all, they just came up with new(higher) IOS versions. Either they don't care about it or they are incompetent. --WiiPower 22:36, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
