    USB Loader GX-UNEO_Forwarder_2.0.wad

    Changelog for USBLoaderGX 2.0:
    Listing only the important changes since the last stable release r874:
    You can find the complete changelog HERE

    * Support up to 8 partitions to store the boot.dol and datas (config, images, themes, etc.)
    * Support drives >1Tb
    * Support for Primary/Logical partitions and GUID Partitions Table (GPT).
    * Added configuration file version checking. It will reset the old one automatically if important changes occured.
    * Added URL to hosting websites (Xbox 360 Theme Depository - Themes for Xbox 360 software and more - Home for theme and Tech Jawa for update files).
    * Added screenshot feature while in the loader (Press Z+c).
    * Support more sound formats: AIF/MP3/OGG/BNS/WAV now with no file size limit (streaming).
    * Support for the new Homebrew Channel (1.0.7+) when exiting the loader.
    * Support for the <no_ios_reload/> tag in the meta.xml for AHBPROT enabled with HBC 1.0.7+
    * New homebrew launching engine
    * New Theme format (Now uses the same format than the language files).
    * Per game lock feature for better parental control.
    * Choose the sub-directory naming convention when installing a game (Ignored on WBFS partition).
    * Select the split size when installing a game: 2GB or 4GB or none.
    * BCA files support.
    * WIP patch files support.
    * Automatic patch for "Prince of Persia: The forgotten sands" (no Wip file needed). (Disable "Return to" option in Prince of Persia preferences)
    * Added Wii message board update (Playlog) when exiting a game to the Wii menu.
    * Brawl+ support.
    * Return to a channel when exiting a game.
    * Removed 1:1 install mode, use install all partition instead or use a real dumper if you want a clean dump.
    * Changed the default folders layout, now the themes and images folders are sub-folders of the loader (apps/usbloader_gx/themes, etc.)
    * Changed the way the Parental control is working and don't read the one from the wii setting anymore. The password is crypted in the config file.
    * Now uses the full Wiitdb.xml instead of the user generated file.
    I read people are having problems with this. This works fine on my Wii! This is my setup.

    HBC 1.0.8 running on IOS58
    cIOS249 v17 base 38
    cIOS250 v21 base 57 "for black ops"

    Keep in mind that if you upgrade all your config files will be reset. It's necessary because of all the great changes, but you might want to save them first. It is possible to convert your favorites and game count manually also.

    I had bad experience with USB Loader GX v2.
    Loader runs nice and smootly but when I launch game from game list, game wont load. Only black screen.

    I didnt have any problems with r938 version.
    Does anyone have similar problems, and any ideas what causes that?

    E1: also r1007 was working ok, when i was testing it.

    Make sure you clean up everything. Consider reformatting your sd card. Anything over r1033 will reset your configs, but you might want to just proactively delete them all first.

    Thanks for quick answer doncaruana.

    I did so. Empty / formated card with apps/usbloader-gx folder on it, and usb loader gx files.

    I have tried many times with many ios configs, but still black screen after launching game. I tried to install cIOSx v21, but still no luck.

    Been testing this for some time myself, one HUGE bug that's been fixed is the alt-dol loading hang, which I posted about in another thread, but their "solution" was to use CFG Loader. No thanks. It was a bug, and it's been fixed! Among many other bugs, too. Big FU to all the USB Loader GX haters who replied in that thread (and you know who you are), this is a great loader and it's only getting better. Now I have to upgrade everyone I was giving the r1xxx builds to

    eluc if you're having problems you must have something mis-configured, this works great for me and many others.

    Interesting...i hope the MODS wont dismiss GX anymore. In the past i have seen some vicious remarks about GX. Thats why i went to CFG. I guess i will load this too and give it the old college try.
