Thanks a ton for all your help!!!
Would it be possible to further elaborate as to why having connect24 turned on is a bad idea? I'm on LU64 with factory 3.4u soft modded with the LU64 fix. I would like to access the other factory stuff like shop, weather, etc. but don't want to sacrifice my usb loader that I have backed up all of my games on. If accessing this other stuff would render usb loader useless then screw it its not worth it. Any further info would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
