HBB updated to v0.3.6

29 September 2009 (v0.3.6)

Fixed scrolling list issue

  • Fixed scrolling list issue
  • Added ability to not delete folders and not extract files if they exist
  • Added ability to select starting category and sorting method
  • Re-added mp3 support (add loop.mp3 and it will play it instead of loop.mod)
  • Improved scrolling of the list at start up

The Homebrew Browser has been upgraded to v0.3.6 to mainly fix the scrolling list bug but I was also able to add some more things to it as well like the ability to choose the starting category (other than games) and the starting sort method (other than date). I have re-added mp3 support but it might not work properly as I didn’t have much people to test it out.

Also small things like not deleting folders (e.g. /apps/fceu, /fceu/roms, etc) has been added as well as not extracting files if they exist (e.g. /apps/quake/ID1/pak0.pak).

Download HBB v0.3.6 or run HBB on your Wii to update.

    After upgrading to 0.3.6 on my usb stick, I got some weird error that kept repeating. I think it said fwrite error: not owner or something like that when it was trying to get the homebrew apps list during the initial loadup before getting into the gui. It just kept retrying and giving the same error over and over until the screen went blank and the wii froze. After I hard-reset the wii, and loaded the HBB again, the error was gone and everything was fine.

    Well, I still have the same stack dump problem after downloading this. It gives me the same error whenever I try to go on any app. Should I delete everything off my SD card and try downloading everything again?

    scrolling down the screen on initial startup.

    There’s a constant error when I try to launch HBB:

    Read error -XX. Retrying…

    I’m using the 4.1E.

  9. Bryant says:

    Is the CodeMii server having a lot of problems lately? Every time HBB tries to connect it gets stuck in an error state and continuously tries to retry.

    I am also having the same read error problem and it varies. sometimes its read error 81 and other time sits read error 22 .. it depresses me. This is my first time trying to use the browser. i thought itw as a great idea.. keep up the great work, it must be rough coding something like this.

    Hi all,

    Yes the server is having issues. We were moved automatically to a server with a different configuration which has caused issues. I’ve been looking into it and hope to have a resolution in a few days.

  12. Krullivan says:

    Same, i keep getting read error -22 / -81 on initial startup. thank you for all the effort put into this, and looking forward to using it when the server is fixed

    Got it downloaded but apps will not load in Homebrew now – what’s up!

    • massiveboy says:

      Sorry should of been a bit more specific! I meant like Gecko for example, it’s there with art work and downloads to menu but when I click on it to use it, it’s the black screen of death!

  15. massiveboy says:

    Hi again,

    I’ve been told that with Wii version 4.2E I will need gecko 1.9.1 for it to work? Is this correct? If so how do I get it and then put it on homebrew menu?


  16. massiveboy says:

    Will you put another version of Gecko on HBB for users who have stupidly upgraded Wii to V4.2E? One that will work for cheats against the mighty Nintendo? Or is that impossible? Nothing is impossible – right?! It’s very frustrating for a newbee like myself! Cheers.

    • teknecal says:

      I’m not sure, did the one above that I linked to work? or do you know of one that is confirmed to work?

      • massiveboy says:

        The link you gave me was OK but it did not work I’m afraid 🙁
        I do not know of anyone who has yet developed a version of Gecko that will work with Wii V4.2E 🙁
        I could kick myself for updating – just did not think! Arghhh!

    Hello, please add support for Kingston sdhc 4gb. It fails to mount the drive … Thank you.

  18. Jordoq says:

    Hey, great work guys. I’m getting the fwrite error here, I suppose that has something to do with how they moved your servers? Working from a USB drive here, sometimes it hard locks on mounting the drive and sometimes it gets confused and attempts to write to sd:/foo/bar. Just so you know!
