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.

Problems

As of 3.0-376, the Homebrew Channel starts without error. Any previous revision or release version may cause Dolphin to crash or hang up randomly.
