    Christ, dude, capitalization and punctuation please.

    AFAIK, you can ONLY USB load from the outer port, which for you I assume is the broken one.

    Unless someone proves me wrong (been out of the scene for a few months), you will have to get it repaired/replaced. Send it in to Ninty, if they see its hacked they'll either refuse repairs or charge you, which would happen anyway (they won't charge you MORE because its hacked). Or, go to GameStop and buy a used one for around the same price.

    nvm a frend told me it would use either port but when i just asked him he said he wasnt sure so might as well forget about that and i know if i send it in they will either not fix it or fix it but take all the mods off

    I can't remember the details, but i know for a fact that cfg usb loader will use the other usb port IF u save a certain file on the sd or usb... sorry I can't remember more than that, but I can say that it can be done for sure without a doubt

    If I remember well you must use cIOS249rev21 with base 58 like cIOS in CFG USB Loader.

    Thx.

    i thought this thread was about getting port1 to work instead of port 0? y r u asking me about cIOSrev58 detection (fyi, to get that working update cfg usb loader)

    I'm sure dr clipper or oggzee would be able to direct u to the required file in order to boot off of port1

    It doesn't matter what cIOS you have (in fact, I wouldn't use 58 as a base, it has low compatibility). I remember there being a way to get the other port to be used instead, I just cant remember how. You may want to ask in the configurable usb loader thread, its stickied in the backup loading section.

    That fixes the second usb port lag, it doesn't make cfg magically use the second usb port to load games instead of the first. There is a setting or something you have to change, but like I said, I cant remember how.

    I finally found the posts explaining How to get your usb-loader working using port1 instead of port0, but I don't think the port1 ehmodule will let you run games from FAT/NTFS, only WBFS... so u may have to beg oggzee to update it to support the other file systems too

    instructions:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=196...t&p=2467184

    more info:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=196...t&p=2464006


    PS. apparently uloader and usbloader gx also have some support for port1, not exactly sure how to get that working, but its supported.

    PPS. To all the ppl still talking about cIOSs in this thread... get a clue, the cIOS used isn't the issue here... so why are ppl still talking about it?

    edit:

    or just get Foez to fix your port0, he's already got a usb header ready for u
