    Wii to boot into Usb loader gx! HELP!!!!

    Hello i have read many tutorials and still i have not gotten my wii to boot into usb loader gx. i did the boot.dol into root directory thing and still no success. Can someone Please point out a tutorial that says all the things i need to have on my sd card besides apps folder and boot.dol.? Is it possible to do this without a sd card in the wii? Does every wii i mod have to have a sd card in the slot to load usb loader gx. THANK IN ADVANCE. Stressed noob

    Its a homebrew app,so yes it needs to run off the sd card. When you say not working,in what way do you mean? the hdd your using wont load? do you get any messages on screen when loading the app?

    Note: usb loader gx wont load unless you have a compatible hdd plugged in the usb port.

    check these threads out.

    yes everything works if i go through the homebrew channel. My hard drive is compatible i formatted with wfbs. Its my 8 year old daughter's Wii and to simplify things i would like her to be able to Power on the Wii and it load into "Usb Loader gx" to eliminate the chance of her doing something wrong. Thank you and i hope this response answers your question. By the my daughter has wanted a wii for 2 years now and she is going to be so freakin surprised that she finally has a console to herself. Her 10 yr old brothers have had a 360 for years and she never gets to play. Thanks again

    You need to set Priiloader to boot into USB Loader GX. No you do not need an SD card. You can install the channel version from the GX site. You still are going to have to use and SD or have a FAT partition on your HDD if you want to store covers and so forth though.

    Again the problem was and is that i want the wii to boot up directly into usb loader gx.

    @darkcide thanks a million. So the sd card is mainly for the saving of game art once i have the channel installed? and Once i partition my hard drive to fat32 or just FAT i will have to re-download or drag and drop the games back onto the FAT partition; then the wii will boot into the loader gx and i will have all the game cover art? And i don't have to worry about the boot.dol root directory step thing because i have the channel installed right? . I Apologize to anyone who dislikes the scent of noob questions

    Yes you need the DOL at the root of your SD to autoboot into GX. Boot into Priiloader and there is an option to load/install file or something along those lines. Choose it and install GX's DOL. Go into your settings and set autoboot to file. Now GX will fire up when you boot your Wii. You can also set the return to option to boot back to GX if you like. Sorry about the crappy instructions because they were all written from memory being nowhere near my Wii at the current time. If I remember correctly you can delete the DOL from the root of your card once you've installed it.

    LOL...Noob questions don't bother me...I'm fairly noob friendly. You pretty much got it right. Except it's more like you don't need to have a GX folder containing the boot.dol in your apps folder. All you need with a channel install is the folders that GX wants like /config and /images.
