    Exclamation Need Help with installing hombrew apps.

    Hello, i hacked my wii not to long ago and homebrew is fine and everything is all good... but have an iso of boomblox. (broke my cd :( ) anyways i need to format my Flash drive to wfbs in order to play it but i have a few problems...
    USB Loader GX doesn't format the drive... it loads up and i get a message with exception DSI and doesn't do anything...
    my sd reader is broken and im young so i cant buy a new one...
    so i have 2 flash droves and i use one for gba roms...
    i m trying to install uloader on my already installed homebrew with a usb flash drive... (ironic,huh)
    and all of my homebrew files are on SD card which i cannot accses via computer.
    so i need to use a flash drive to install uloader so i can format my other flash drive to wfbs so i can play games on it...
    how am i to do this.
    and one other thing...

    IM ON A MAC

    (please NO replies telling me to get a pc or that mac's suck. im just happy with my computer)

    ps: im on 10.5.8 (leopord)


    Best Regards, ​eanator

    Wiibackup manager will transfer that iso to your flash drive for you. You do not need to use wbfs format, fat32 is better way to go. There is a link to the backup manager guide in my signature.

    hmmm... forgot the MAC part, not sure if WBM works on mac. I know there are some workarounds, I am pretty clueless when it comes to MACs though.

    i have another problem... the iso for boomblox is too big, so is there a way to change it into a wfbs so it will be smaller and fit on my 3.8 g FD?

    The game will not he that big when you transfer it through a game manager. It will trim it down to a surprisingly small wbfs file.

    The fd with apps on it must already be fat32 format, that will work for your games. As far as installing things with it, they might work. It won't hurt to try. Wad managers usually don't like to work with usb devices though.
