    So I want to replace the bootmii startup.elf file with the USB Loader GX file, except it's a DOL and not an ELF.

    So is there some way I can convert it?

    USBLoaderGX is always provided in two files : boot.dol and boot.elf
    why do you want to convert it? just use the second one.

    boot.elf is not in the all-in-one pack, but always provided in the other revisions packages.

    If you autoboot the loader, you will miss features dependent on AHB access.
    To give AHB_Access to the loader, you should autoboot the forwarder which will disable AHB protection.

    If you want to autoboot USBLoaderGX from bootmii @ boot2, replace sd:/bootmii/ppcboot.elf with this file
    it's a forwarder to the Forwarder channel. (you need UNEO forwarder installed)

    I originally tried autobooting the forwarder with priiloader but that just crashed the wii.

    Thanks for your help, I got it working
