    Guide- Homebrew Browser


    Homebrew Browser is a homebrew application that lets you download the latest homebrew applications and games without taking out the SD Card from your Wii.

    Here is a video of the Homebrew Browser in action:



    *Note*- This app can only download homebrew hosted on the Wiibrew.org website. Also you won't be able to download cIOS-dependent homebrew.


    Step 1

    Installing

    1. Download the Homebrew Browser from Here
    2. In the root of your SD Card create a folder called "apps".
    3. Copy the "homebrew_browser" folder to the "apps" folder on your SD card.
    4. Now take the SD Card and put it in the Wii.

    Step 2

    Using

    1. Now load the Homebrew Browser using the Homebrew Channel and make sure your Wii is connected to the internet. You should see something like this:



    2. Uses the Wiimote with IR to choose your favorite homebrew application.

    Green Tick - You have the latest version of that homebrew application installed.

    Yellow Question Mark - You might not have the latest version of that homebrew application installed.

    Troubleshooting

    Can't initialize network / Read errors



    Issues mounting my SD or USB device



    Can't find the IP of CodeMii



    Freezing when trying a repository



    Updating HBB Fails



    Weird lines before loading the graphical user interface



    Crashing to numbers screen (code dump)



    Free Space Detected is Incorrect



    Applications don't download / download button won't work



    *Credits*

    Thanks to teknecal for this great app
    Thanks to all the Wii homebrew developers and icon artists
    Thanks to all the people who tested the HBB revisions
    Thanks to all members at Wiihacks

    Congratulations on your first guide, Richard. The guide looks good, is well-organized, and I know any member questions will be supported. I am moving your guide to Other FAQ, Guides, and Tutorials.

    Ugh, I thought I might have posted in the wrong place. Earlier today I posted about the update in the Downloads Section. The version there is 0.3.7 because it hasn't been updated in forever-and-a-half. Could somebody update thread, since thucncao seems to have forgotten it? People are more likely to go there for downloads.

    Btw, excellent guide.
