    USB Loader GX - USB2.0 Game Installation?

    So I've been ripping my games to my HDD through USB Loader GX's wonderful installation process, and everything is fine and dandy, save the fact that the typical speed for this installation process is around 2 MBs. Now, I figure this could be caused by one of two things: the speed at which the Wii reads the discs being limited to that (which I doubt) or the USB transfer speed being limited. I've tried running off of IOS202, Base 60, which purportedly supports USB2.0 transfers, but no joy. So here're my questions: Firstly, which is the limiting factor, USB or DVD. And if it is USB, how can I get USB2.0 speed installs?

    EDIT: After further self-education, I've concluded that USB2.0 support isn't present in USB Loader GX. I'm going to thus assume that it's not in any USB loader, but if anyone knows of one that has it and allows installs in the manner of GX, let me know.

    Introduce yourself in the intro section and follow a resoftmod guide given to you in the reply.

    You are missing something, because its not the loader problem.

    Aha, thanks. IOS58 is the supported USB2.0 IOS, which probably should've been obvious to me since it uses libogc. Further question: I already have IOS58 installed, along with 50, 53, 55, 56, 57, cIOS 202 base 60 (which is what I installed USB Loader GX with), 249 base 38, and 224 base 57 (Freshly softmodded to 4.1u using this guide, though due to FileSonic problems, I downloaded IOSes individually using NUS Downloader and apps separately, with Hermes appended to 202 and 224) - with this in mind, what might be preventing the use of USB2.0?

    Where did you get your information from? It's the cIOS that grants the USB 2.0 speed to the USB Loader. USB 2.0 speed was introduced with cIOS rev9 (IOS249), back in March 2009, the first cIOS to be used with a usb loader. Hermes cIOS (IOS202) also has USB 2.0 speed which was used with MPlayer, and later IOS222 used with USB Loaders.

    USB Loader will only use the cIOS, there is no IOS58 (or any other IOS) support in any usb loader.

    Well, that was mostly pessimism and newbishness - a piecemeal of research (the pessimism was mainly based on the changelog of r1000 of GX, which listed 2.0 support along with stuff yet to be achieved). Thanks for the correction. Any idea what might be holding back my speed?

    EDIT: "[Step 5] - Getting HBC to use iOS58 for USB2 Support

    From the Homebrew channel load up the hackmii installer and reinstall the Homebrew channel. This will make it use ios58 for USB2 Support." (from the 3.0-4.2 Softmod guide by Cile) - could this be the solution?

    That could very well be the problem. A lot of the discs I've been using have been backups - I haven't really taken note of the speed of the retails, but I think it's been around 5 MB/s - that sound about right if all else is well?

    Wii reads backups at 3MB per second, and retail discs at 6MB.

    Once you load your USB Loader the cIOS takes over, the usb loader will not use any IOS under 200.
