    Thumbs up [SOLVED] Problems with USB Loader GX

    Problem solved, it was because of HDD not being compatible!

    Spoiler



    New problem (yea, im serious ):

    Spoiler



    LAST:
    @Cile

    Well sir, it turned out good. First I updated from cIOS249 rev17 to rev19 (because I read that rev17 doesn't work well with FAT32 nor NTFS.
    I made two partitions, FAT32 and NTFS. Put all the needed files with WiiBackup Manager to the FAT32 parition. And what do you know, it works!

    Thanks for setting me in the right direction. If I learned one thing from this, is that you need to READ and DONT RUSH. Because then you'll overlook couple of things

    Once again, thank you WiiHacks community.

    your usb stick may not be compatible, or maybe it is formatted wrong.

    You should still make a copy of your nand, it could be used as a last resort by a nand programmer if the need arises.

    Yea, but since, I can't install BootMii as boot2 (I think I installed it as IOS), I think I don't need it, because if I end up bricking it, there is no way back right? Because of no boot2 version of BootMii.

    Btw, I have another HDD, a 3,5 WD Elements 1,5TB. But it's full of data (movies et cetera), so I'm a bit hold off. Maybe I'll give it a try, by partitioning it. Thanks for the tips.

    Different ideas?

    you could not do anyhting with the nand backup due to lack of boot2. If you were to fully brick, someone with the right tools and know how could use it to fix your wii.

    I think I don't need it
    Yes you do need it. Make the backup and keep it safe.

    This is one of the biggest mistakes people make. If you fully brick your wii the ONLY way you can fix it is with that backup.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    May sound silly but did you try both USB ports when you were trying GX? I believe it uses the port on the left if its standing up and the bottom port when laying down. Do you connect your USB drive before you start GX or after it starts? Put the drive in first and then start GX. You may have already did that but eh, i tried...

    Yea I tried both ports. Btw, I also tried some different loaders (CFG) from HBC. And for using FAT32 or NTFS, I remember i read that you need cIOS249 rev 18 at least. I have rev 17. Should I update?

    Thumbs up Update

    ***********************
    UPDATE:
    It was because of my USB drive. It wasn't supported I guess.

    I partitioned my 3,5 WD Essential 1,5tb HDD, and all the loaders now find the WBFS partition and games!

    But I have a new problem now: whenever I select a game (whatever loader I use), It start to load, but then it freezes. I never made it into a game.

    The two games I tried are Kirby's Epic Yarn & Super Mario All-Stars.

    I will try other games and report back here.

    Really appreciate the help, thanks guys.

    UPDATE: also tried Mario & Sonic At The Olympics and Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, but still no dice. When it is about to load, it just freezes. Also ripped a game from original DVD to HDD, but that also yielded no results.
