    For running games from a USB drive do you have to ensure the WBFS partition is the 1st on your drive?

    Nope. It doesn't.
    I have mine as the 2nd partition and it works fine.

    Just to confirm: No. My WBFS partition is actually 3rd. NTFS--FAT32--WBFS

    In fact, it's recommended to have the 1st partition be NTFS or FAT32 since most homebrew can only find partitions there while WBFS doesn't care where it is.

    May sound like a dumb question now, but is there any easy way to go about reordering partitions?
