    Sleep did the trick for me Kind of hard getting used to have to wake up at certain time because I have to go to work . No more late nights for me.

    Thanks messie, I was going to keep the pros and cons down to a couple, but you're right I could expand on them.

    Thanks billyhome, I've updated the post, I read on the GX site it saves 1.8MB. Now can I calculate this, nand has 4096 blocks, bootmii saves it as 540MB, 540/4096 rounded 128k per block. 1.8Mb/128k is approx 14 blocks.
    Is that crap, its 1.8Mb anyway.

    Thanks very much for this WiiJohn. I've updated my GX loader now and followed your guide and links, thanks to the other poster for the revision page. Life is much easier now!! I was stressing something fierce with my ultra basic GX loader 1.0 and god knows what Rxxx I had.

    This is very useful thread! It will decrease posting-presure of noobs, because when finished with softmoding, working with USB Loader GX is next step, and of course, settings is very important.
    Just one thing about choice of channel or forwarder. When I asked which option is better very authority guy answered:
    "if you install the channel(not forwarder) then when updating GX you would contantly be writing to the NAND decreasing it life over time compared to normal use, and yes kkeeping up to date with GX rev is some what important as bug are fixesd and changes have been made

    installing a forwarder would increase the life of the NAND as you are updating the boot.dol on the SD/USB and not touching the NAND at all"


    Maybe, if it is useful information, can be inserted in pro/cons part of "settings"

    Thank you very much again!

    Mirkec23, thanks for your comments. I know where he is coming from with the nand being accessed. As I understand it memory can be read/write 10's of thousand times, I think maybe 1 update a week will not be a problem. Every time you play a game your nand gets written to, perhaps I'm missing something.
    Anyones comments on this subject would be welcome.

    You go to settings, unlock parental control if you have it set.
    Select update, it will connect to the internet, there are three choices, USBLoaderGX, WiiTDB and Languagefile. Select WiiTDB and it will update.
