    usb loader gx channel

    Hi there
    I have modded my wii effortlessly. Fantastic job you guys . I have one problem with usb loader channel though it works fine but it would be better if i could install it into my channel menu on boot up with everything else it just boots up off the sd card. (so does wad manager and other apps ).
    Hope you can help guys

    There are 2 ways to do it. Either install the channel itself or a forwarder.

    From the FAQ:

    What are the differences between the forwarder and the channel? Which one should I use?

    First we will start with what is the same:

    Covers and disk images are saved at the SD/USB
    Changes at settings are saved at the SD/USB
    Cheats (ocarina) are saved at the SD/USB
    Both Update via Wii's internet connection

    Both are channels taking space at you Wii memory (NAND)

    Now here is what is different:

    The channel includes the program which is also saved to your Wii memory too
    The forwarder is a link to the program (dol/elf) saved at your SD card or at your USB HDD

    What are the pros of the channel?

    1.You can play your games without an SD card or a second partition at you USB HDD
    2.It starts around a second faster

    What are the disadvantages of the channel?

    1.It takes about 1.8 MB more space at the Wii Memory that the forwarder does.
    2.If you use it without an SD (or a second partition at you USB HDD) you can't save your settings, you don't have covers and disk images and you can't use cheats (ocarina)
    3.You don't have the cool loading screen (see above)

    What are the pros of the forwarder?

    1.It takes 1.8 MB less than the channel of your precious Wii Memory
    2.If you want to manually update is faster and easier than the channel as you only have to replace boot.dol (or elf) at your SD/USB
    3.You don't have to update often the forwarder, you don't have to update it at all if you don't want to
    4.It has the cool loading screen

    What are the disadvantages of the forwarder?

    1.You need an SD at your Wii with the dol file to be able to use the program (or a second, fat32, partition at the usb device)

    2.It's a second slower to start the program compared to the channel

    Do I have to use one of those too?

    No. You can use HBC, BannerBomb, twilight hack, loadmii, preloader or w****ver else you can and want to use to load the dol file at the revisions page

    or maybe, you want the loader to load when you turn on the wii, autoboots into the usbloader
    Install latest Priiloader 0.3b R48<---the instructions on how to it is there

    remember if you do every time you launch the gx forwarder you sd card must be in with the gx dol file on it...if you dont want that just install the channel link in my sig for r915 which works great if you want latest go here Downloads - usbloader-gui - Project Hosting on Google Code
