New user to Con USB Loader... questions
Couple of questions about the loader,
Configurable seems to be one of the best loaders available so i thought about giving it a try first.
I am going to be using an external fat32 hd, as i understand it, if i change the drive to wbfs i can carry on using my wii (as is) i.e. having done the 3.1 4.1 guide by dogeggs, and having the cios38 r17 installed.
After reading the guide for configurable it states that it has support for waninkoko's 249 & 250.
But if i want to use the external as fat32 i will have to install hermes 222/223.
Its at this point that I have become a little confused, I would prefer to keep it as fat32, simply because its a lot easier if you have to travel to someone elses p.c. and they do not have wbfs manager installed.
But I am at a loss as to how the hermes 222/223 works or installs, is it done through your apps folder, and if so does it carry a risk of corrupting the cios38 r17?.
I am also slightly confused as to what ios merged with another ios is all about?. I did see in one tut video just to leave it as "Default".
But then I also read that you need to reload cios222 installer twice, once with ios38 merged with ios37, and then rerun & select custom ios223 & select ios38 with ios60.
Also if this info is out of date there's a good chance i'll bugger up me wii.
If any kind person could help in guidance, it would be very appreciated.
Its been a hard slog chaps but i finally burnt my first dvd-r today & loaded it through neogamma.
Thanks in advance chaps
3.1e up to 4.0 up to 4.1e all thanks to many of the chaps on here. & dogeggs of course.
This is my final step now, & also to put on a forwarder as I believe this uses no system memory.
Just search Hermes and you'll find that the answers to your questions have been answered.
Installing forwarder channels uses about 5-15 blocks of your system memory.
What I said about no system memory, is only because i read this here, Forwarders (USB Loader GX)
at the bottom of the page.
Is there anything that you would approve of?. (as in loaders), I know its personal pref, but after looking at this, USB Loader Releases - WikiTemp I'm not to sure what to do. I also read on here many posts of people having problems with loader gx, so it kinda puts me off of using that one, even though dogeggs lists it on he's guide.
Yes forwarder channels take up less blocks then having it installed to the NAND, as it is a "shortcut" so to speak.
I Use CFG USB loader and I also have Wiiflow. I find they both work very well. I used to use GX and stopped because it wasn't consistent for me. That doesn't mean it wont be for you, lots of others use it and have no problems with it.
Thanks for that krank,
I managed to find a link here somewhere, (forgotten now), but it was called uloader_v3.0C.rar I believe this is Hermes v 4, well in the apps folder the is another folder called cios_installer, I am assuming this is hermes.
I Came across this also http://www.wiihacks.com/wii-custom-s...os-v4-out.html so if i follow this guide there shouldn't be any problems. I did see that this v was called uloader_v4.1.rar (is it just the loader that is being updated) but still using the same cios222?.
Thanks for your replies
Yes you can follow that guide to install if you want. The older version will work too. You can install with a WAD or do the online installation it's up to you. It is an updated version of the previous cios.
Is there a good forwarder you could recommend, as there seems to be quite a few, but no mention of one that has been well used & tested.

Download- Extract-Install through wad manager.
Downloaded, Will install later.
Out of curiosity, are you using fat32 or ntfs for your external.... my external isn't out of the box yet, although i have tested an old knackered maxtor 40gb for testing and did two partitions, first being ntfs and second being wbfs, and that worked fine through neogamma, but only the wbfs partition. (I was surprised it even did that).
I have a 320GB drive with 2 partitions. 200GB WBFS 100GB FAT32. When I set up my drive I hadn't heard of FAT or NTFS loading so I just kept it this way because there has been no issues, and I don't mind not being able to browse the WBFS drive in windows. I keep all my loaders/apps on the FAT32 partition so I dont have to use an SD card. I also use it as storage and for movies and TV. It really depends on what your planning to do with the drive that determines the best setup. Hope this helps.
