The '''Homebrew Channel''' is a self-updating homebrew application loader by Team Twiizers which allows users to load homebrew applications without having to run an exploit every time. Once installed, users can access the channel from the [[Wii]] System Menu just like any other Wii channel. It can launch or install homebrew applications from an SD or SDHC card or via TCP/USB Gecko using Wiiload.

This channel allows users to install or launch homebrew, or third-party applications, from a variety of media without having to run an exploit every time. Ideally the functionality of this channel, inside Dolphin, would allow the install or launch of any homebrew or third-party application without the "IOCTL_ES_LAUNCH: Game tried to reload ios or a title that is not available in your nand dump TitleID xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. Dolphin will likely hang now." or "Unknown pointer 0x83e10000 Continue?" errors appearing.
