You don't have a windows computer and you want to play Wii games on usb loader? Then here is the tuto!

All you need:
A Wii (obviously)
A device to download and copy the files
An sd card/usb (don't forget to format in fat32!)


First you need to have homebrew Channel on your Wii. If it don't look another tutorial.

After that you need an usb loader. There is usb loader gx that is popular, have kind of lot functions. You can kind of use it as a "Wii menu" because you have the channel bubbles with your games. But if you're a family I recommend CFG ( I'm using it) because usb loader gx has really scary crash dumps. CFG only loads your usb/sd games. I've been able to change the music and photos (if you want a tuto tell me) I am not sure that usb loader gx supports sd cards but you can tell me. So choose one of the both and go search the download. (Not the wad, the zip/rar... Folder) When it's downloaded, extract it. If you see first the "apps" folder, just extract it to your sd card/usb root. If you just see a folder with the name of the app, Make an apps folder on the SD/usb root and put the folder on it. Now your loader should be on homebrew Channel!

Now what you've waited: put games on the SD/usb without Wii backup manager/windows? First take sd/usb
Same that with the launcher or not. Go to a good site to download your game (wbfs). After that create a folder named wbfs on your sd/usb root.Now search on internet your game name and gametdb. You see your game on gametdb. Copy the id (looks like RFBE01) Create a new folder on the wbfs folder and name it what you what but end it with the copied id (with []) example: A Wii game [RFBE01] In this folder put the wbfs game. Rename it with the copied id (as the upper folder) it will be like: RFBE01.wbfs
Now eject your sd/usb and open your loader.

Now you can play!

It's not clear how we're supposed to download wbfs files directly from the Wii. I didn't even know the Wii had a web browser.

You can download games on android then transfer them in wiiplorer through ftp or usb (you'll need an app USB switcher).
