cIOS Failed to load in USB Loader GX
I would like to start out by saying this is the 2nd system I have ever attempted to mod. The first, my PS2, did not go over so well, so I am hoping for better luck here. Ok, now then.
I have recently installed HBC. Geko works, HBC Browser works, Brawl + works. It seems everything works. I decided to take the next step up and start backing up my games and playing them VIA External HDD. I followed all guides to the letter. The only difference I did was when I installed cIOS 250, I put it on block 250 instead of the normal 247 block because there was already an cIOS installed on that block and I didnt want to overwrite it.
Anyway, I installed USB Loader GX and started it up. I see the loading screen and as I am carefully reading all of the words on it as they flash by, I see this: "failed to load any cIOS. USB Loader GX Requires cIOS 222 or higher to run properly...etc". Then it goes to the screen and says that it could not load any USB device, Starting in Channel mode. I didnt notice at first that it says "Failed" because my TV cuts off the first half of the word.
But after recording my video of it and hitting stop at that screen, I put the words down and realized that its not reading the cIOS that I installed. I have tried 4 different hard drives. 2 of them were USB 3.0. SO i thought that may be the problem. So I tried my 2.0 Drives. Nothing. I tried 3 diffrent Flash drives. Nothing. I even took a couple internal hard drives, and used a Sata/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter. Same thing.
I have tried 1 TB HDDS, 500 Gb, 250 GB, 9.5 GB, and even partitioned some of the 1 and 2 Tb HDDs into 100, 250, and 500 GB partitions. Yes I do format them to WBFS and I have also tried as just FAT 32. I have not tried re-installing the cIOS, because I am unsure.
I have read all over the place of Wii's getting bricked because of cIOS installations. My Wii is already acting a little funny, doing things like freezing up while watching Hulu sometimes and my disc tray light randomly coming on and pulsing while on standby. So I am unsure about what I should do from here.
If someone would like to walk me through step by step, i could also make a video so maybe you guys could see what I am doing wrong. Thanks for your time.
