    Uninstall the channel/forwarder you may have installed and just delete the files from your usb device/sd card. That's it.

    UPDATE!

    I have managed to incorporate the console selection option into the triiforce mrc menu where the sorting and menu buttons are. Now if you press the B button (really the only button left i can use), you will be presented the menu again. I believe I have one bug to work out still and then that feature is gtg.

    Thanks this tutorial was amazingly helpful.
    Maybe I'm missing the question, but if all you want is a channel that will launch a boot.dol of Triiforce MRC that is saved on your USB drive then...

    TF_USB_Forwarder.rar

    This is a modified version of the regular Triiforce MRC that uses the same Logo on the channel, but it looks to USB:\triiforce\boot.dol

    You can put anyone's Triiforce boot.dol in that directory. (Like the one from the post above would be a good choice! )



    For example, I included two different ''Triiforce MRC Auto_USB'' boot.dol files in the RAR to put in that location.

    One is in the "read_PNGs_USB" directory and another in "read_PNGs_SDCard"
    (I think you can figure out from the names what they do )
    Is this what you are asking for??


    As always, never use ANYONEs wad files unless you have bootmii or simular and a good copy of your wii's NAND.

    I'm not sure if this will help you or not but.. If you are already using usb loader you can use this thread Wiiware, VC and Homebrew Forwarder ISO's - GBAtemp.net to just make iso's out of your wads and boot them from wiiflow etc..

    Thanks smyers, that sounds exactly like what I was looking for. I'm about to test it now.

    @Hyrule
    That wasn't exactly what I was looking for but it does look very handy and I think I may try it out.

    Thanks for the help

    I hope I'm not being disrespectful, and you you are very close to what is being requested, and I thank you for everything you have done so far, but somehow the one missing never gets done as a channel/forwarder.

    The one that is needed is a channel that starts off where the nand drive and then the console can be selected, I have been through all of them so far and that for me (a WAD collector! ) would really like to see offered

    That one also reads the images off the USB drive, so it's just a channel wad we need please.

    Thanks.

    You put the contents of the nand folder in the root of the USB drive, hopefully that will fix your problem

    @Smyers

    The forwarder worked great, it was just what I wanted.

    EDIT:
    To be more specific the contents of the nand folder go to the root of the FAT partition of your HDD. I also had to have that partition as the first partition and the active partition for it to work.

    OK, I guess I'm getting a little lost on the use of the word Forwarder instead of Channel.

    A forwarder does nothing more that launch a boot.dol from a location, in this case either on the SD drive or the USB Drive.
    You can put just about anyone's boot.dol in the target directory it's pointing to and it will launch it.

    A Channel is the whole package in one and contains the boot.dol inside.

    The major disadvantages of Channels are;

    A: They takes up more precious space in the Wii’s tiny memory.
    B: Every time something changes, like a new version of the boot.dol with cool new features you want, you have to re-compile the WAD, unload the WAD and re-install the WAD.
    If something goes wrong installing the WAD.....Brick.

    With a forwarder, you only install it in the NAND One Time.
    To update, you just replace the boot.dol in the folder that the Forwarder is pointing to and Bam! Bob's your uncle, your program is updated.
    No messing with the Wii's NAND and possibly making yourself a nice White Brick (or Black Brick if it's a new one).



    So.... It sounds like you want a Channel WAD that does exactly what Sinyk's Custom posted on page one does with the cool selectors.
    This can be done right now. Here you go.
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/wmmt0nym2wl/Triiforce
    This is the a WAD Channel with the boot.dol from the custom loader on Page 1 of this thread.

    (As always when working with WADs, bootmii protection, YMMV, yada,yada,yada)

    Of course when Sinyk finishes up the new Custom version he posted about a few posts back...this is a Channel, not a Forwarder and will need to be re-compiled.


    If you want a WAD that reads the PNG's and the Config from the USB, so it can run without any SDCard in the Wii, that is not ready yet.
    (Soon..but not yet)

    Another update:

    With some help from Smyers75, I have completed adding the console selection to the main triiforce screen menu (the one where you can sort games and open the triiforce menu).

    I have also verified that you can launch triiforce from an SDHC card if you are loading a USB nand.

    As Smyers pointed out (while I was writing this post :P), we are close to having triiforce able to do everything without an SD card. The only thing left to fix is saving to the config file on a USB drive. We are able to load from a triiforce config file on a usb drive, but saving to it is not such an easy fix.

    For now, you will still need an sd card with a triiforce_mrc folder for saving your configuration, but you can now load images from a usb device.
