    Download here.

    It's untested cause I'm not near my Wii. The Forwarder loads the USB Loader from /apps/USBLoader/boot.dol. You have to inject the dol_forwarder_usbloader.dol into a wad or create a new wad usind Wadder.

    Awesome Space! It's nice of you to take time to do this since I believe you are still recovering.

    Thanks and hope you are better. [​IMG]

    What exactly does this do?
    I just load the USB Loader from the Homebrew channel.
    I've seen some stand alone channels for it too though.

    What this does is make it so a channel can load the dol from your SD card instead of storing it in the NAND. That way when a new version of the USB Loader comes out you won't have to install a new version of the channel.

    It doesn't look like anything. It's a dol, not a channel. You have to inject it yourself.

    Richy is right. Maybe someone can make a wad and post it.

    Spacejump, is there anyway to have it forward to two dol's. Like press right button and it forwards to normal USB loader. Press Left button and it forwards to NTSC Force loader. I'm only asking because I know your other forwarder did this (like emulator ones).

    I'm testing this one right know.

    Yes that's possible. You can you the source of e.g. the Emu Forwarder to compile. Just modify the paths.

    Alright, i'll try it out. The only problem is that when I used your "blank" forwarder dol to create the usb loader forwarder, it kept code dumping on me. But ill try it out regardless.
    Thanks.
