    I'm also getting just the black screen when I use preloader 0.3 to try and load usbloader.

    Should I just go back 0.29? Or any other fix for this?

    (Softmodded wii on 4.1u)

    The latest USBLoaderGX checks for links to JODI and HAAX. If you are using an earlier version of HBC ie 1.0.3 then 0.29 is OK. 0.30r3 works with HBC1.0.6 so I beleive does 0.30r4 but I am still on 0.30r3.
    Check you have the right ini file for your system.
    .dol in root.

    I'm was using HBC 1.0.6 and the final preloader 0.3 (I believe). Do you mean the .ini file for preloader? That is there and correct. I also tried to point preloader at the forwarder .dol and also tried copying the usb loader gx .dol to the root of the card and installing that on preloader. No dice. I also tried Wiiflow which also didn't work.

    So I actually installed Priiloader and that works with Wiiflow, but again not with usb loader gx. So I'm happy for now, at least I can skip the system menu this way.. and wiiflow is sort of growing on me...

    Maybe I should look into this JODI/HAAX thing, although usb loader gx loads just fine through the forwarder channel I have in the system menu or from HBC.

    I'm in the same boat as you wiieye,

    Preloader 0.30r4 will not work with my GX forwarder .dol either. It just freezes to a black screen. I hate going thru the wii menu but thats what I've been doing for now.

    I have also been having trouble with HBC 1.0.6. Pretty much everything loads to black screen in 1.0.6. I have HBC 1.0.3 installed as well and most things work thru that. What about you? Do you have both installed as well?

    I'm thinking thats where my problem lies and am going to try deleting 1.0.6 and trying with just 1.0.3.
    I'm on 4.2U.

    I'll upload my .dol file I use, later

    It is possible to boot your wii directly into the USB loader GX. The only thing you need for this is a wii app called preloader.
    First download the newest rev of the loader or even better, the forwarder (dol format, see downloads at the top of the readmii). Place the dol you get in the root of your SD card (no need to rename it to boot.dol).
    In the preloader menu, choose install file and choose the dol to install. When its done, go to the main menu of preloader (B) and then choose 'settings'. You have to change 2 options here: Autoboot=file and Return to=preloader. Save the settings, then launch the Wii menu in the main menu. It will boot into the USB loader GX!



    I realised I changed my settings, sorry for that.
    Autoboot=file
    return=autoboot

    With these settings the Wii boots in GX,
    When you press A in a game it goes to GX.
    Also when trying to exit GX it only goes to HBC or GX.
    If you want the Wii menu you have to poweroff, gointo preloader and select main menu.

    I had 1.0.3, which then updated to 1.0.6 and worked perfectly.
    Give Priiloader a try, it's based on preloader 0.3 with just a few updates, and it works with wiiflow directly. Like I said, can't get it to work with gx but I'm liking wiiflow now, especially the banner music when you select a game.

    I pretty much followed those steps to get GX to work, but something just isn't working and I have no idea what. With Wiiflow, I have to do the same thing, power off wii and go to priiloader to load the regular system menu. Which is fine by me, since 95% I want to boot straight to the loader.

    Any luck on getting a new forwarder dol for preloader 0.3r4 on 4.2u. I am in the same boat. However I get a code dump when trying to load from preloader 0.3r4. I can load gx fine from the system menu or HBC. Everything was fine with preloader 0.29. I should have not updated.

    0.29 does not have all the links to work properly with the new HBC and 4.2.
    You can remove 0.30rx by reinstalling your system menu, and then you can install what ever version you want.
    Piiloader has all the links for the new HBC and 4.2, plus all earlier system softwares.
    Take your pick, but priiloader is the only one currently being updated.
