Ok finally took the plung.. Not really but I had a spare USB 128GB extrenal unit and I deicide to give it a shot on loading games via usb drive.
Here is what I know and then my problem,
WII hardmod wiikey II
IOS known installed:
I was running cIOS38 rev13a but i just installed cIOS38 rev14.
Installed USB Loader 1.5 via WAD manger:
Launch the USB Loader channel.
I get the menu for the usb loader channel select it and the system looks as it's going to launch it and goes to a black screen sits for a few seconds
and then reboots wii.
Any help would be appreciated
Ok installed CIOS36 Rev 10 for giggles.
still no luck
Then i went to HB and loaded it through there and it works... So it appears to work via HB but not wii channel???
Tried: uninstalling the wad and reinstalling and same.. Works great under HB channel and apps but reboots wii from the channel????

You should try a different USB Loader.
USB Loader 1.5 is incredibly basic and does not have the features you need to run a lot of the newer games.
Try USB Loader GX which can be installed just to SD or as a channel/forwarder if desired. Currently I have it installed as a forwarder channel and it works very nicely indeed.
Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
Here is what I have tried I installed the 1.5 wad that it installed the channel. Then i even removed and reinstalled to just make sure it was OK. Then now I am having to launch it from HB channel and selecting it from the menu and it launches and works fine...
How do I make the channel turn into a forwarder??
I'm having the same problem. The only fix I could make work was to make USB Loader GX load first thing. If you have Preloader installed you can install this dol and set it to auto boot 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download GX Forwarder dol for Preloader(official).zip
