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.


Starting the Homebrew Channel causes Dolphin to hang or crash randomly.

Starting the Homebrew Channel, then exiting through the Home button causes the following error: Unknown pointer 0x83e10000 Continue? Saying yes or no causes Dolphin to crash.


This channel does not need non-default settings to run properly.
