    Error 1029 on USB Loader GX Forwarder install


    I've browsed these forums, and many other forums, as well as followed all of the steps in the Error index to try and fix this issue, but it doesn't seem to be working for me. I'm trying to install the forwarder for USB Loader GX from the .WAD file included, but it isn't working. I tried using WAD Manager 1.5 and Multi-Mod Manager, but they end up doing the same thing. I tried using IOS 36, 37, 48, 249, and 250 as bases. For the first 3 I get error 2011, but if I try 249 or 250 it successfully installs the title and then gives me a 1029 error. Sometimes it doesn't even install the title. According to the index, I'm supposed to uninstall IOS249 to fix the problem, which I did successfully, but I still received error 1029. It also said use a custom Wad Manager, and I figured Multi-Mod Manager would count, but if you know of any other managers please let me know. Also, if you know of any other IOS that might work please tell me; I've tried a few others like IOS 16, 70, 222, and 223 but all they do is lock up my Wii. I have tried getting the .WAD file from 3 different places, but all files were identical and the results were the same.

    I don't know if this matters, but when I tried installing it with IOS249 installed, I tried revision cIOS r14 and cIOSX r19. Is there an alternate method to installing the forwarder? I read something about Priiloader, but I didn't know enough about it and apparently it changes a lot.

    I appreciate the help

    I know it may be "unoriginal," but did you try wad manager 1.4? You do have the files on your SD card and the correct pathing, right?

    Yup The directory architecture is correct, that I am sure of. I have tried WAD Manager 1.4 I think, but I'll double check that.

    I looked into Priiloader and managed to get that working, and it does what I wanted, although with less flexibility. It definitely satisfies me, although having a channel for USB Loader GX will make it a little more kid friendly. My Wii is used by lots of kids in this house, and they like the basic System Menu with all of their Wiiware games. This said, it's not too important to get this working. I was just hoping that this would be a common problem and someone would recognize this instantly, but if not, the Priiloader will work.

    I guess I forgot to mention that my Wii is an LU30 and I'm running 4.2U.

    How do you go back? Uninstall ios249 then install cios38rev17, or can i install cios38rev17 right over 249?

    It works with rev14 as well.
    Installed without any problems.
    Then just reinstalled rev20.
    Working with no problems so far.

    I've got USBLGX 2.0 installed and loading as channel from the HBC. Now, I cannot install the forwarder. Previously/Before I got it installed but the only thing I got was a black screen. (I've updated to 2.0 from the USB Loader GX GUI)

    Can I install only the forwarder from a blank SD? Could it be a folder/path structure issue?
