GX loader removes update request and makes the game playable on different region.
If using WBFS manager or GX WiiBrickBlocker and/or RegionFrii are not required.
use these if you want to run DVD backups.
Priloader helps prevent bricks by skiping updates and region.
Also, WBFS is an appllication that I run on my pc to load games onto my hard drive, correct? Does it install from wad and iso files?
Is there anything else I might want to consider doing?
Again, thanks so much for the help!
The WBFS converts ISO files to WBFS format for Wii.
There are other loaders apart from GX,
Check this guide
Ok, so I'll need to always have the wad and dol files on an SD card that's inserted into the Wii? Or can I just have an "SD" folder on the USB hard drive?
Does the wad manager work on my PC or only on the Wii?
dol files are executable files for applications, like USB loader, right?
Just to answer your previous question. Wiiflow also works just fine with this set up. Just use the wiiflow .dol instead of the usb loader gx. It's all personal preference.
i tried the settings you provided and and all i get is usbloader screen just blinking on and off. what am i doing wrong
