    What does a channel forwarder do

    What does a channel forwarder actualy do, silly question if I know but I thought that it would take me straight to the usb cfg loader when I turned the wii on. However I have followed the tuturial and that doesnt happen. either I have done something wrong(probably) or a channel forwarder does something else. Can any one advice me what a channel forwarder actualy does thank you Steve

    A channel forwarder loads a boot.dol from a particular location on your sd/usb device. The difference from a channel being the boot.dol in a channel is actually installed on your wii.

    i know that it is recomended to use a channel forwarder but what are the real advantages. ie can you actualy update cfg loader directly from cfg loader it self, does it run quicker not being on the wii and taking up space. Thanks for your help

    If u accidentally update the channel forwarder wont be erased an so u can access cboot2 via that forwarder an reinstall your softmod, also u can update your loader without having to create a channel everytime a new revision comes out.
