    Question Problem installing usb loader gx

    Being the newbs that we are, we paid to have someone softmod our wii. That wii stopped working, and being within the 60 day exchange period, we exchanged for a new system. Now, I don't want to pay someone to mod our wii again, but I'd really like to have this one modded too.... so we are trying it ourselves.

    Our wii is v 4.2u; I've read the tutorials on how to soft mod a 4.2 wii, and honestly, I'm just finding so many conflicting articles and reading so much that I think I'm going cross eyed...

    Basically this is what I'm running into:
    We have Homebrew installed and it seems to be working normally.
    I have the following on my SD card, which I was told to download in order to install usb loader gx:

    • Apps folder
      • cios36rev10 installer (folder)
      • cios38rev14 installer (folder)
      • usb loader gx (folder)
      • wad manager (folder)
    • Images folder
    • wad folder
      • USB Loader GX -UNEO forwarder.wad

    When I go into Wad manager and choose ios249, my system freezes. Someone told me to try using ios36, and that gives me a -2011 error.

    I've read so much about softmodding wiis that I'm not sure which direction to go in now... should I start from scratch using the tutorial posted in this site? Or am I just missing something simple? Basically the only thing I'm interested in is playing games that are backed up on an HDD. All of the other extras, I'm not too concerned about... (although my husband would like to put emulators on there... but i won't get into that lol)

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Again, I'm sorry if I'm asking for help on an already talked about issue: like I said, I just can't seem to find where I'm going wrong and have read so many articles and posts about modding that I'm not sure where I am anymore!

    Ya what he said. Don't get carried away and just randomly install stuff. You may regret it. The guides here are wonderful and easy to follow if you take you time. Have a look in Pop3008's signature and give Missie's Softmod guide a shot.

    Thanks, I've looked at the guides, and I guess I'm not sure where to start seeing as we already have homebrew channel installed.... can I still put all files listed in that guide on my SD card and pick up on Step 2? ... I'm just afraid of screwing something up because I'm not following steps in sequence... If I start on step 1, will that somehow mess something up because homebrew is already there, or will it write over it? (obviously, I'm not too clear on how exactly it all works, but am very thankful for a step by step guide!)
