Hey guys, I just finished my work on a new nand loader which works in vwii mode, the project is located here.
The usage is quite easy, just grab the precompiled app file from the downloads section, extract your wad using wadmii or whatever, replace the 00000001.app with this one, repack the wad and enjoy! Oh, and this way requires having the real dol you want to load as 00000002.app, customizemii sets it up like that by default, so forwarders built with customizemii should always have those two app files.
Currently that only seems to work on vWii, still trying to find a way to use it on both Wii and vWii.

If the forwarder's ID starts with one of these letter E, F, J, L, M, N, P, Q and maybe X, use a Wad editor to change the TitleID, and it will launch in 16:9 (otehrwise it will run in 4:3), without the need to go to HBC [Note by Cyan].

I'm curious; care to offer any explanation as to what prevented old NAND loaders from working, what had to be changed, how you figured it out etc.? (Of course, it's not overly important that you do, I just like reading about that sort of thing)

USB Loader GX forwarder for those that want it.
The file you linked is wrong.

The Title ID you used (ULNR) should be UNLR (maybe it's just a typo?)
And UNLR is the TitleID of the FULL channel, not the forwarder. If you used the Full channel as base, it will not work (it will install v3.0 to user's vWii instead of the forwarder)

The Forwarder TitleID for USBLoaderGX is UNEO.


Anyway, thanks for making it :)

If you really want to release the updated full channel too, don't mix them and correctly tell the user which is the forwarder and which is the full channel with (old) v3.0

Hey guys, I just finished my work on a new nand loader which works in vwii mode, the project is located here.
The usage is quite easy, just grab the precompiled app file from the downloads section, extract your wad using wadmii or whatever, replace the 00000001.app with this one, repack the wad and enjoy! Oh, and this way requires having the real dol you want to load as 00000002.app, customizemii sets it up like that by default, so forwarders built with customizemii should always have those two app files.
Currently that only seems to work on vWii, still trying to find a way to use it on both Wii and vWii.

You're awesome :]

Thanks for your work - I'm gonna check for sure!

Edit: Yay, HBF channel now works in vWii :D

Sorry didn't realize.

That will explain why USBLoaderGX seems to have gained some more features since I was using it through HBC yesterday.

So you need a noob-proof answer ;)

No, you also need the app on your forwarder-pointed-folders (usually SD :\apps\appname\boot.dol but can vary depending on who produces the forwarder).

A Forwarding Channel is a Channel that points to a .dol file in a specific location (the forwarder can be programmed to search the application .dol in various folders, even in USB folders). Channels (not forwarding channels) insted are apps that are installed inside nand (or emulated nand) and do not require a .dol somewhere, all they need is inside the Channel; so now you know the difference between a Channel and a Forwarding Channel (both are Wii or vWii dash channels but they work differently).

For Fix94 WiiFlow forwarder you need to have the WiiFlow homebrew (boot.dol) installed on your SD :\apps\wiiflow.dol (dunno if other locations are good but this one is tested and working!).
