USB Loader GX freezes
I think I've managed to install everything that's needed to run backups from a USB external hard drive. When I startup USB Loader GX, I just get a black screen and the system freezes so I have to power down by holding the power button on the system. How do I fix this? Any help is appreciated. (I'm running Firmware 4.0J) Is it because I installed cIOSv14?
I'm having the same issue..
I run usb loader from HB Channel. Screen goes black then i get funny colored lines on the screen then it resets after a minute..
I currently use SD/USB loader v1.5 which detects my Hard drive i can play Games/Rip with out an issue..
I was hoping to use a more "pritty" app..
I'm currently searching for a fix to my problem.. (in search now )
Do you have the latest version of USB Loader GX?
Revisions (USB Loader GX)
I have tried two different versions..
723 and 682 (noticed people recomending 682).
I loaded the Hermes cIOS to give it a try and it works now intermitantly.
I dont know if this is normal but it takes about 1 minute to fully load on 723 and abou 45 sec on 682.
Since i loaded Hermes cIOS SD/USB loader v1.5 also works intermitantly now as well..
I dont use it to play games these days just to rip.. its faster via USB HDD than wifi..
I will see if there are any new ones and give it a try.. To upgrade all i need to do is replace the boot.dol file? I couldnt see any boot.elf file to replace so thats all i changed when i tried 682..
Just replace the boot.dol and your good to go.

USB Loader Gx 1.0 (newest rev) - Freezes at HDD load screen
Hello. I have a soft modded 4.1U wii.
I just updated my IOS222/223 using Hermes Rev. 4
I dont use the Channel I boot from homebrew. I am running into an issue from freezing if:
1) I have my HDD plugged in when I start the USB Loader
2) If I plug the HDD in when it is asking for one. It recognizes it but just stays loading...
Oh my Hard drive is WD: Model: WD500H1CS-00
Any help would be appreciated.
When ever i want to use the hard drive, I install CLOS38 Rev 10. this is the only one that works with USB hard drive 100% no questions. All games work .. you just make sure you keep USB loader GX updated or the other one err "somethingflow" I cant think what i t is now.. Looks nicer.
If i need to have something newer installed i use V14 .. I change quite often back and forth . so far has not hurt my wii
I have tried V14 and the "fake" "15" and it just sits there and hangs 95% of the time.
I dont know why this happens and have tried every type of "solution" i could find and no luck.. My money is on the clos version..
I am at school but I will try that later tonight. I hope it works. I think you are also thinking about WiiFlow. this is at present what I have installed on my system (I removed the USB Loader GX from my SD). I will let you know if the older revision works. It shouldn't brick my wii if I downgrade right? I used 249 to upgrade my 222/223.
Like anything on a wii, Its always possible to brick.. In my case .. Jumping from CIOS v10 to V14 back and forth has caused me no issues. If you have parents involved then ..

I dont have parents so if i screw mine up .. i can just go buy another hahaha..
It is my Wii (dont live with my rents). Now the hard drive didnt recognize in the wii until I updated 222/223. I am wondering if maybe I need to try to reconfigure those two files to see if I can get it to work instead of downgrading the CIOS Rev 14 - 10. I know during installation it allows you to select different combinations of IOS 36 and 38.
What are your thoughts?
