    Booting from USB Drive ( have kids)

    Hi

    Thanks to the fantastic soft Mod guide on here i have managed to unlock my Wii

    Have kids and so want to boot from USB direclty into the 50 or so games i have on my WD Passport USB drive

    I have been into the loader and selected boot from installed file and also installed the USB loaderGX file but when I try to boot it fails every time

    From the Wii menu I can use USB loader GX without any problems , go into the carousell and games and load from there , i just want my Wii to boot straight into this every time but seem to have got stuck now !

    Any suggestions

    Thanks

    TZ

    You need to use priiloader to do that. Have a look HERE and click the spoiler that says "Set priiloader to autoboot to specific app".

    I appreciate the link nightstah, but I am confused about which forwarder to use....
    I am running 4.1U System Menu (downgraded from 4.3U as indicated by MauiFrog) with USB Loader Gx 3.0

    The file you need is in the 249 all in one package. Go to the wad\forwarderDOL folder. The file is called ForwarderV5.1.dol

    Apologies, Bevel:

    Either you didn't make it clear or it was a fail on my part. Cjizzle's exactly right

    Much appreciated!

    UPDATE: For anyone that was following along, the above instructions worked flawlessly. Wii boots to USB Loader Gx 3.0 - games exit back to USB Loader - from the USB Loader menu I can push the home button on the Wiimote and have the option of returning to HBC or Wii Menu, which also works perfectly.
