    I have come looking for help, i promise i have spent at least 2 hours trying to figure this out myself and googled it. I have modded several wii consoles over time and am doing one today for a friend.

    On a system with 4.1u I followed this guide: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-faqs-g...od-any-wii.html

    It works perfectly but for 1 thing, the neogamma usb loader channel does not work, it goes to a black screen and just hangs, so I installed USB Loader GX and the forwarder, when launched from the forwarder it does exactly the same thing but when launched from the homebrew channel it works perfect. So I loaded the actual USB loader GX channel, not the forwarder, it also hangs at a black screen. I am completely stumped.

    Thank you for any help.

    Launching from the HBC, it knows exactly where the program is...so it makes sense that it works.

    If you are using a forwarder you have to have the folder names "just right" in your USB:/apps folder otherwise it won't "find" the program and you will just get a black screen.

    Different forwarders may have different paths they look for the program, this will hold true regardless of the loader you are using.

    I suggest you check the Configurable thread for the proper folder name, and then verify the folder structure on your USB drive.

    I had the same problem when I switched to forwarders a while back...

    Good Luck,

    Jake

    @ChokeD I have tried that, it does not work.

    @jstevenson72 I have checked the configurable and it is correct, it is also correct in the program update path. The thing is, this doesn't only occur with forwarders, it also occurs when I try to install the GX and Neogamma channels directly onto the system, so there should be no issue with location there.

    Incase it helps anyone, I have installed and reinstalled ios38x14 both from the wad and from the network, and done the same with 222/223x4

    No, no pre-loaders.
