    I had used the Lego Starwars jailbreak to install homebrew, then installed Nintendon't, CFG loader, and a channel launcher for CFG Loader to stick on my vWii's home. It is all set up and works, but CFG is VERY slow to start. I click on the launcher and hit start, and then it spends about a minute or two on the blue screen saying that it's loading files, before FINALLY going to the loader.

    I have everything on a 64GB SD card, and while I have a USB drive for Wii U games I have CFG explicitly set to look only at the SD card.

    Any help would be appreciated. I can upload a dump of my SD card directory (excluding games) if you want.

    Anyone? I don't know what is causing it or how to fix it and it is really annoying

    If I were you, I'd use WiiFlow. It's much better. Also, don't put all your games on the sd card! Use a external hdd or a flash drive. Loaders have a hard time pulling backups from the sd.

    Also, why would you even use a disc jailbreak? Those are unecessary, as there is an easier way to install homebrew called the "letterbomb" method. It's easy af and free too! It takes less than 5 minutes to install homebrew and bootmii with that method!

    Letterbomb does not work on Wii U. Sorry, the homebrew is on the vWii side so I thought asking here would be more appropriate.

    I can try WiiFlow again, I remember dismissing it but I can't remember why.

    Try disconnecting your WiiU-formatted drive and see if that changes anything. If not, run SysCheck and post the .csv file (in spoiler tags.)

    WiiFlow boots immediately, but I have to download covers and figure out why it can't find my gamecube games. I'll probably use it instead then

    That looks fine. It could just be an issue with CFG Loader, then. It hasn't been updated in quite a while now.

    CFG runs perfectly fine on my WiiU, but I use a USB HDD, not an SD card.

    I ended up just purging it and and installing the WiiFlow multimod suite. I have to figure out how to enable n64 games, but already it performs better than my old version of WiiFlow and nintendont.

    CFG Loader has no issues on my vWii loading games stored on the SD card. CFG Loader (70r78.10) loads in about 10 seconds from hitting Start on the channel forwarder, and only takes 5 seconds to boot into a game.

    WiiFlow on the other hand takes 30 seconds to load, and another 30 seconds to boot into games. Seems like it's a well-known issue with WiiFlow and a SD card only configuration.

    Looking at config.txt under /usb-loader/, you have "device = usb", when it should be "device = sdhc". That might be causing the large loading time.

    That would do it. I changed it within CFG but I guess I had to use a text editor. That would've saved me some time.

    As it is, Wiiflow launches very fast. I'm not fully satisfied with having to click on that fiddly toggle to cycle through everything just to switch to Gamecube games, but my setup works - and works better than it did before - so I'm not going to futz with it. I'll change that setting in the backup in case Wiiflow borks though.

    Thanks for the help.

    Click B on the source button and you'll get a menu to pick which one you want. :)

    Press 1 to change the way games are shown. You can even change it to show like 40 games at once.
