    Looking for a way to create a forwarder channel for an elf file.

    One of my favorite Homebrew apps is ftpii but unfortunately it is an elf file and not a dol. I use it all the time but I have not found a way to create a forwarder for it or better yet, make a channel. I did try to convert the elf file to a dol using an app that I found on wiibrew but I got an error that said it was not a valid wii app when I tried to run it. Any ideas?

    Not sure if this uses an elf or a dol but I found a forwarder channel for it. (I know this isn't what you asked for but the only thing I could find)

    You know that after the release of HBC beta9, support for elf files was dropped, that is why elf files do not work, only dol files work. And I tried that elf to dol converter and never got it to work either.

    Here is a forwarded that was posted in the WiiMC thread, made by MrGreg.

    FTPii - Ftpii-GSFT.wad

    Have you looked here yet? Downloads - ftpii - Project Hosting on Google Code Or is this the one posted at WiiBrew?

    OH, I see you got it working, nvm then.

    Well sun of a gun. lol. I didn't even try the forwarder option in Customizemii. I tried to make a channel with it but it only allows for channels to be made from dol files.

    I just started Customizemii to look and there was the option for the elf forwarder. I should have looked yesterday . Thanks guys.
