    Help installing USB gx loader on already softmodded wii.

    I am running an older wii on 4.2 softmodded last year using this guide (Guide which caused spam flags, do not post this again) everything is fine I have HBC, neogamma r7 and wad manager

    I would like to Install USB loader gx so I can transfer all my backups to a hard drive and access them from there cause I like the interface.

    I tried putting USB loader gx.wad into the wad folder on my sd card and wad manager installed it fine but it doesn't work, it crashes to wii menu when I start it.

    Can anyone help me since I'm already softmodded and everything works fine I don't want to screw something up. I just want a working USB gx loader. What can I do?

    Thanks guys

    Did you install a channel or forwarder? Two different things... I suggest skipping USB Loader GX and go with Wiiflow or CFG Loader.

    There you are. Removed the offending link, make sure not to re-add it. Not necessary for people to help you anyways.

    Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean by channel or forwarder,
    I just put the USB loader wad file in wad folder and installed via wad manager the same way I would install neogamma, so if a channel means things like the mii channel and this things on the wii menu then I guess it was Asa channel but I'm nit sure.

    I don't know the exact terms so

    Channel = boot.dol (app) is in the channel, no sd or hdd required to use. Slightly more difficult to update.
    Forwarder = points to a location where the boot.dol is located. I recommend using a forwarder, easier to update by replacing the boot.dol

    For the USB Loader GX forwarder, you must have the boot.dol in either of these locations for it to work correctly. Name must also be exact.
    /apps/usbloader_gx/boot.dol
    /usbloader_gx/boot.dol

    Thank you so much for your help, but unfortunately I'm not too experienced in this and I'm not quite sure what do do or where to start. Do I need to remod or update or download anything? If possible could you give me a step by step so I can get started? I would appreciate that so much. Thanks again for your time.

    Do you have a lot of backups?.. Because you only have 2 cios installed. Those two might not be compatible with certain games.
