    USB Loader GX (Wii Softmod) Install Guide


    This guide will help you install and learn more about USB Loader GX for the softmodded Wii console. This application will work on a 4.3 softmod as well as it will for a 4.2 softmod or a 3.2 softmod. Included in this Wii guide are links to WAD downloads, GX themes, instructions on how to use USB Loader GX, and instructions on how to install GX. The project is led by giantpune and dimok, along with other popular Wii scene coders like r-win and lustar.

    USB Loader GX is a very popular program for the softmodded Wii console and one of the first widely accepted backup loaders for the Wii console. Most information in this guide was borrowed from the USB Loader GX online readme*. I take no credit for such information or the abilities of the application itself. All I did was edit and format it into a layout that I hope is accessible and easy for you to utilize.

    I notice latest v2.1 when used with its IOS222 .dol can be configured to use USB port #1 as well as #0.

    Currently using uLoader for this but can only read wbfs formatted partitions.
    I assume if I use USB Loader GX on port #1 it will retain its ability to see an NTFS formatted partition as well as wbfs?

    I'm going to go with saying that it should do so. Make sure you are using Hermes cIOS to attempt this, as well. Rather than re-quote them: http://code.google.com/p/usbloader-g.../detail?r=1066

    You can add more than one just fine, but I believe it plays them in consecutive order at launch. They may have changed that since I last used it, but I don't think that's the case.

    First make sure you're using one of the latest releases. They updated lots of code and you can use mp3 files if you want. Second try deleting the GXGlobal.cfg file in SD:\apps\usbloader_gx and let it regenerate itself the next time you boot the application. This will clear all your settings.
