    uLoader
    is a homebrew application for the Wii developed by Hermes, based on Kwiirk YAL and Waninkoko USB Loader with its own cIOS (cIOS222/223/224) to launch backups from USB devices or a Disc.

    Are there any plans to include NTFS or FAT formatted HDD's to the existing wbfs formatted drive capability?

    I really like uLoader, originally because it allows USB port #1 to be configured but I then discovered the potential to use an external USB DVD on my recent (black) Wii.
    The CISO works flawlessly when using Nero to backup several of my original games on a single dvd.

    doubt it since hermes ''retired'' from wii scene

    if you use wbfs drive you can use both ports with cfg v66/usb loader GX 2.1 with hermes cios 222/223/224

    or if you use wanin cios with base 58

    Just had another 'disaster' with my Wii.

    I was trying out neogamma to see if it would play a CISO disc (as per uLoader).
    Unfortunately forgot it was in USB #0 and again caused a 'no power' situation to USB #0 (I think something must have overloaded electrically with driving USB DVD).

    I have no problem using USB #1 and uLoader to play CISO's but would like to try USB Loader GX as you suggest to see how it performs on my #1 powered usb.
    Unfortunately it will not load because it expects USB #0 to be powered up so cannot see the HDD connected to USB #1.

    Is there any way to get it to look at USB #1 as its source before firing it up, say by configurating first?

    It's certainly faulty, but will replacing the usb block stop the problem?

    I would like to think so.
    Any guides that would help me anywhere.?
    I see plenty of people (on forums) who have similar problems but none of the hardware guides I can find even refer to USB replacement.

    what country do you live in and i can find you a replacement part.

    guide is - take wii apart, desolder original connector, solder in new one.

    I live in the UK and I have a softmodded black 4.3E Wii.

    I must admit that I have aalready got as far as dissambling up to metal stage via guides on internet, but was uncertain of process when the double USB module was exposed.

    The Wii seems to be a really well designed and compact unit and my limited experience needs expert guidance.

    I'm sure I can follow the soldering bit you mention when I am able to see how it comes apart.

    Question

    In trying to get all music games into one loader that could be launched from the System menu,that is Sing/Rhythm/Dance/Plastic Instrument games in on place with as few games as possible (more songs to a game), All sorts of reading shows there are many ways to do part of the job. Uloader looks like the best way to do all of the job. Are there better ways to accomplish this? Understandably WBFS is not an ideal Partition type, but if it corrupts it should probably only corrupt that partition and that could be handled with a small backup.

    Looking here there are Uloader 5.1d and 5.1e versions, there is also an unofficial 5.2 version that reports faster load times.

    In particular the Saves & DLC section seems to state that you can choose a Nand/Game

    Use DLC from x: / Nand /: Lets you use the DLC for a game when the NAND emulation is activated from a different folder to SD: / nand or USB: / nand
    Would this allow me to Run 2 instances of RockBand 2 and one of Rockband 3 with each on a different nand?

    ie: USB: / nand | USB: / nand1 |USB: / nand2

    This screen is of interest

    uloader.jpg

    Is Uloader the only loader that does this?

    Having looked at GX, Flow,Flow-A,CFG and Unii the same functionality is not apparent.

    Unii looks like the next closest contender, but information is sparse. And it is uncertain if it can do the job as well, but it uses the easier to work with NTFS.


    So, the main questions are:

    Is there any Reason to think this will not work?

    Given the final outcome wanted, is this the best way to proceed?




    Edit: Moving forward I found that Uloader refused to see the Fat 32 drive so it would not recognize the emu nand.
    I think this was because i could not set the fat32 as primary and active due to the fact that WBFS is not recognized.
    I can think of two possible fixes for this:
    -Fix 1 - load the games to fat32 in CISO format...I read this is slower than using WBFS so may not be preferred as load times are already high.
    -Fix2 - Add a small NTFS partition with the sole purpose of allowing the Fat32 to be set to active.

    Edit2: Did a low level format and started from scratch. no change, uloader still refuses to see the Fat32.
