    I Was wondering i have a 500GB Drive For USBLoader and was wondering if i could put all my homebrew channel and wads and apps and stuff on to the drive by partioning a 2GB Out Of The 500Gb Drive Them Using The Rest For Games?

    Can I Still load homebrew stuff or will it be possible?

    No, because the HBC reads the SD card, not a HDD.

    You can put WADs on it, since WAD Manager reads from a USB HDD though. Whether it'll work as a secondary partition, I don't know.

    Yeah, I think the new version has this capability...many of the apps do so if not it will soon. However, it has to be the first partition on the drive so you will need to transfer all of your games off, delete the partition, create the FAT32 partition (I made mine 30GB but I plan to use it for other stuff in the future), and then create the 2nd partition (both primary) and quick format ntfs. Then open up WBFS and format the ntfs partition with WBFS and put all of your games back. I just did this last week. [​IMG]

    yes you can, not all apps are supported, if you have an sd insert the homebrew channel 1.02 just see the sd , the sd as to be remove absolutely , for usb loader most of them will request you to have to sd for your theme and covers, but some can, an all will be able to in a near future,

    watch closely the homebrew channel 1.03 is in progress [​IMG]
