    Also wanted to note the difference the difference between a channel (.wad) and a fowarder. A channel will enable you to run it even without the USB Loader GX app on your SD Card, but it does not have the cool splash screen while you wait and it's not faster (barely though, so I've heard). The fowarder has all that but it needs your SD card to work, meaning no sd card = no USB Loader GX. If you have time and memory to waste, then you might want to download both just in case =P

    Hope I helped ^^

    P.S. fowarder is smaller =)

    ok
    If I understand
    if i install the forwarder only
    it go to my sd card "apps\usbloader_gx"
    and open the "usbloader_gx" from my sd
    I don't care to work from the SD
    As long as I'm not wasting my time loading speed !
    And it is easily accessible from the WII channel menu

    Or I may be wrong [​IMG]

    Forwarder = A Wii channel that loads the app(boot.dol) straight off the SD/USB, saves space as its alot smaller than a standard channel but can still vary in size

    Channel = A Wii channel that loads the app from the Wii(NAND), larger than a Forwarder once installed but size depends on the app

    Hybrid = A Wii channel that will first try to load the App from SD/USB, but will load the internal App if the one on SD/USB isn't found (Normal forwarder would just return to the Wii menu)

    in both cases you will have a nice channel on the Wii Menu, a Forwarder speed can be faster at loading than channels but still varies on the app being loaded
