    i have recently changed my firmware to 3.2E to try and fix problems with wad installed channels simply not loading on my console. previously i had 2.1E firmware which would cause the system to just black screen and freeze, i had to hold the power button down to use the console again. trying to start the channel 3.2E will make the system reset and go back to the wii menu. i am just trying to get the USB loader channel working but the channel simply won't load and won't give any error or indication as to why. any ideas why it is doing this or what i can do to fix it?

    yeah, the cIOS that Backup Launcher Gamma needed to run and also the cIOS for USB in order for USB loader to run.

    You've got the wrong cIOS installed.
    You want to remove the USB cIOS and install cIOS36 r10 from here

    Then try using the USB Loader.

    SD USB loader 1.5 functions 100% from the Homebrew Channel and i have no problem playing games from it. the latest cIOS from waninkoko's blog was installed, the problem is that i can't actually access the channel form the wii menu, i need to use homebrew channel everytime.

    bump, tried the just posted snes9xgx WAD and it does the exact same thing....just resets the wii

    WAD installer says it installed fine and it comes up on the menu but everytime i try to access a newly installed wad it fails to open!

    guys what could i possibly be missing that causes EVERY installed wad on a 3.2E console (upgraded straight from 2.1E) to reset the system?
