    Using a channel is just so that you don't have to go through the Homebrew Channel. If you're still looking for a USB loader that works/you like, then find the .dol versions and load them through the Homebrew Channel. When you find one you like you should probably get a channel version of it.

    download wad manager and
    http://sites.google.com/site/usbloadergui/...oads/forwarders
    if you want to run usb loader gx through channel.
    to install the wad, you needs to create a "wads" directory on the root of your sd card, then run wad manager through homebrew channel and install the forwarder.
    this forwarder will point to the usbloader gx folder's boot.dol in the apps directory of your sd card

    is the "wad" folder in the apps folder or in the root of you SD card?
    it should be sd:/wad/USB Loader GX-ULNR-r516.wad
