I meant, is the v8 forwarder channel unable to boot a usb-loader from your hard drive? how about from the sd card? The forwarder channel works great, but a few ppl have reported compatibility issues. I suspect SD compatibility is unaffected, so the v8 forwarder channel may not be able to launch a usb-loader from your hard drive, but it should still be able to launch it from the SD card. Note that all my Qs are referring to the forwarder channel, not the homebrew channel.
