Wii homebrew made dead simple


If you've been too scared to try Wii homebrew in the past, you'll be interested in this latest project, which is sort of ... meta-homebrew. The Wii Pack Generator holds your hand through the process of downloading homebrew, making it as simple as clicking on some check buttons and unzipping a file.

The Wii Pack Generator allows you to choose the programs you'd like to install from a list, and then generates a self-extracting archive containing the Twilight Hack file, the Homebrew Channel installer, and the programs of your choice. All you have to do is extract it onto an SD card!

The most complicated part of this whole thing is figuring out who the participants are. This is a project of wiibrew.com, not the well-known wiibrew.org that runs the Wii homebrew wiki.
