    I'm currently using USB Loader GX. Is there a reason to prefer using a channel or a forwarder? Is one faster/better than the other?

    The forwarder is better as all it does is point to the dol on your SD card. You can auto-update and it doesn't break anything. The channel is also not updated as often as the dol is.

    I think the only advantage to the channel is that you don't need a sd card in the Wii to use it. I don't see the point of it though, because of course you do have an SD card, or you wouldn't be able to install the channel so ....
