    help with usb gx after update.

    hi guys.
    i have a problem with usb loader gx recognising my hdd after i updated gx from r937 to v2.2.
    usually when i select the usb loader from the main channel menu on the wii it took aprox 5 secs to load up but since the update it fails to recognise the hdd and just returns back to the menu again.
    i will explain the steps i took below and if anyone could read them and maybe spot what i did wrong.
    i downloaded the package usbloader gx all in one v2.2 and extracted the contents.
    inside was 2 folders called apps and wad along with the changlog.txt and the read me.txt.
    inside the apps folder was a subfolder called usb gx but on my sd the apps folder didnt contain a gx folder so i assumed my previous version of gx was installed as a channel so i left that folder be.
    inside the wad folder was 2 wad files called usbloadergx-v2.2-unlr channel-abhprot.wad and gx uneo forwarder 3.0-abhprot.wad. also there was 2 other files called 249c.dol and forwarder 3.0.dol.
    i transferred the usbloadergx-v2.2-unlr channel-abhprot.wad to the wad folder on my sd where the last wad for v937 was and then placed the 249c.dol onto the root of the sd.
    i then deleted the config folder from the sd which contained the previous settings for usb gx and the boot.elf file.
    i returned the sd back to the wii and launched wad manager v1.7.
    i installed the new v 2.2 channel wad on 249 and it was successful.i returned to the main screen and tried to launch the loader but it takes 5 secs and just returns to the same screen again.

    i can get this to work by placing the usb gx folder from the new package in to the apps folder on my sd,installed the gx uneo forwarder 3.0-abhprot.wad. and placed the forwarder3.0.dol file to the root of the sd.
    i can now launch gx through the hbc and it loads up the hdd no problem and works perfectly.

    i would like to fix this back to the way it was as i have young children and i dont want them entering the hbc to launch it as they are both under 5 and were comfortable using it the old way.i maybe removed a file i shouldnt have or missed a step.i backed up my sd before any changes so i have still got the files i deleted.
    any help in righting this is greatly appreciated.

    You can grab any wad file revision from HERE if you want. Download the .wad file to your SD card-place the wad file in the Wad folder. Now, put the SD card back into the Wii, go to HBC, run Wad Mgr, leave it at its default settings of IOS249 and SD card slot. Select the WAD directory and install your USB Loader GX revision wad file.
    [SPOILER= Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here]Shift_Lock On Forum Issues - Vol. 1

    First I would like to state that this is one persons point of view. It does not reflect this site ( or any other staff/mod/or admin here. It is solely mine. Now even though a few may have similar points of view this should be taken as one person’s opinion. Also. This DOES NOT reflect all users and noobs here.. Just a select few personality types that pop in time to time. Let’s get started!

    [SPOILER="Outlook On Forum Rules "]Now I realize many of you did not even read the rules and just agreed to them.. Kind of like signing a legal contract without reading the clause that states you just sold your life away… It happens... When it does, YOU are still responsible and held liable for your actions. No matter how much you think its BS... It’s still on you. I for one am among those who did just that when I signed up here... (Shame on me I know) I to did not read them immediately (however I did speed through it to get a general idea)... I was quickly referred to them a few times do to not being thorough enough with “speed reading”...

    [SPOILER="Why we have rules on this site"]The rules here at wiihacks are here for a few key reasons. I’m only going to hit a few.

    Conduct - We know it’s the net, and there are a lot of internet gangsters/bully’s/and plain jack ass’s... We don’t like that here. The ways users conduct themselves reflect the site... We want user to enjoy coming here but respect in general is needed. Flaming and such results in infractions/bans so don’t do it.

    Piracy – This is a big one here, and no one seems to understand... First of all IT IS AGAINST THE RULES OF THE SITE! Which every last one of you members had to agree to follow prior to being a member here. Copyright laws vary from place to place so they are different for others. But we have to follow our copy rights here to protect our site. We DO NOT support piracy and will not assist in it. We don’t want to lose our wonderful site that you as a user come to, to find help. Big brother (the government) and big “N” (Nintendo) may be watching along with a vast amount of other private sectors looking to stop the pirating of copy righted material. Shutting down sites that support it are somewhere at the top of the list to reduce this.

    Personally, I don’t care what you do... I don’t care what your online habits are or how much porn/software/media you download every day. It’s your computer and your life. YOU are responsible for anything that may occur from that. Users who lack a way with words to express themselves in what they are trying to do may get wrongly accused of being a pirate and these things occur: warnings/infractions/bans/threads closed/YouTube videos of dancing pirates/ and many many possible pictures pointing you out.

    We as staff here are obligated to abide by and enforce forum rules. Whether we believe their valid or not. They are in place to protect the site and members of our community. I won’t allow a poor decision result in losing this site.

    Cheating – Play Fair... I support it... Nothing I hate more than losing to a cheater... If I lose I want it to be because the other person was actually better. Cheating takes the fun out of the game... Why make it easier? Do you suck that bad at it? Don’t like the challenge? GET A DIFFERENT GAME! We don’t support cheats here. Users will not be given help on how to become invincible or walk through walls... you want god mode? Unlimited ammo? Go Google it somewhere else. Don’t ask about it here.[/SPOILER]

    There are a lot of users/members that say “this is wiihacks wtf?” or "that’s the point in hacking a Wii”... No it is not….. We assist users in backing up their legally purchased games so they don’t get ruined in the future (we know how kids are)... Before backups I had bought 3 Mario karts! Ridiculous… Anyways, it also allows us to fully enjoy the console and the convenience that some mods add to the system. We make it custom and set it up the way we like it. Kind of like your pc. A lot of users buy the Wii just so they can do that! I will ban anyone who tries to argue that point... Dont be ignorant... [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “So you Think You’re a Hacker”]Warning: Spoiler below is a rant. [SPOILER= "Shift_Lock's Rant about the tough guys"]Really guy? We are “Modder’s” at best... most users aren’t even that. A hacker would shut down this site with a single code line… Not sit here claiming he’s one arguing about rules and why he needed help... I’m not saying we don’t have members that are real “hackers” but face it... You aren’t one of them... Coders and developers are fantastic people that make all this possible. And some of those guys truly are considered hackers at some level. Now, could they hack the pentagon? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows... lol

    The point of this is for those of you that come on here thinkin you’re hot [nice word]... If you were a hacker you wouldn’t need our help and wouldn’t need to hide behind a proxy or redirect to post your nonsense… Get over yourself and just follow our guides. If you can’t “hack” a Wii, what can you do? Can you hit the logout button? Try It! How about facing your fail and going back to the guides to read some more… Leave the “hacking” to the REAL hackers out there. /end rant[/SPOILER][/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “Need Help?”] That’s why you’re here right? To get help Modding your Wii. Some users can just navigate the site and never need to post a thing because they can search, read and are on some level tech savvy. Other users need assistance. That’s why we are here... To support and assist those who need the help to mod or to help find solutions to their problems. We like to help… but... We don’t always like to spoon feed arrogant people who demand help or can’t use the search function... If our search is too hard to use there is Google, and if you can’t use Google then you SHOULD NOT mod your Wii...

    We see the same issues every day, same posts, same questions, same answers…. SEARCH FIRST!!! Read a little… Geez people! Too lazy to search for a solution, but can type a wall of text that takes 15 mins to read? C’mon man… step up your game... My spoon hand is getting tired, gonna have to just start [nice word] slapping people with it…

    Don’t be lazy... Help us, help you... If you’re really stuck then we take no issue helping as long as it’s within the lines of the rules... The “grey” area is kind of tough... The staff is here on OUR own time and do not get ANYTHING for being here helping you... We are not paid and don’t see any part of the donations... The donations go strictly to site development. Can you fathom how much it costs to run a site of this level and host the files that we do? Everything costs money... Just not the staff here so remember that the next time you are impatient or lazy... We aren’t getting paid... We are helping because we want to... So keep your cool and dont lose your head... Don’t give us reasons to NOT help you. If you do, well... Then we won’t...[/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= "Mutli Threads, Double Posts and bumping"]Ok.. So It might not bother you but it bugs the crap outta me! It clutters the forum and makes you come off as impatient and ungrateful.

    Mutli threads - Do you really need more then one?? Mods and staff see EVERY POST MADE! You only need one thread for your issue.. Dont create more then that..

    Double posts - You have an "EDIT" button... it will be right under your post to the right.. it will say "EDIT".. say it with me now.. "Eh-d-it" ...... Use IT!!!

    Bumping - If no one has got to you yet there IS a slim chance it was missed.. probably not.. As we answer what we know. so if we dont know, We will leave it for someone else or atleast contact another Staff member for assistance. So WAIT and be PATIENT!You can bumpAFTER 24hrs! and that it!!! I will infract/ban/scold/kick your dog/delete any users who abuse this after warnings....[/SPOILER]
    More to come (without a doubt) so stay tuned for the next edition! Peace I’m out![/SPOILER]

    the usb gx package i used is the same as the 4th one down in the link you provided only i got the package from wii hacks usb loader gx thread.
    i left wad mgr at its default settings also,nand disabled,sd card slot,install wad etc etc and it came back saying the wad installation was successful.
    if i repeat the steps again surely i will have the same result?.
    i think i removed a file from the sd that i shouldnt have and thats why its not working?.

    ok after a lot of searching it appears i need ios 58 installed in order for the forwarder to work.
    after i install this wad i believe i have to reinstall the hbc.
    if anyone could answer the questions below i would be grateful.
    can i install this wad using wad manager v1.7 on 249?.
    can i just update the hbc rather than reinstalling it?.
    also when i install the wad to forward the app where do i place the .dol file.would the root of the sd do or do i need to place it in a folder?.
    my hbc is v1.0.6 and ios 61 v21.29.
    thanks in advance.
