    Wii 4.3U - modded using Modmii
    USB Loader GX 3.0 (rev.1180) - using d2x-v10-beta52 (IOS 249, base 56)
    USB0 - Fat32 - Main files
    USB1 - NTFS - Game files only

    Issue 1: Theme downloader
    Downloads theme, unpacks, but doesn't let me apply. Hangs at 100% progress bar. Hard reset.

    - Fixed in revision r1190 but how do I apply this fix?

    Issue 2: Just Dance 4 game has a long-delay with black screen after being launched

    - If I turn off "Emunand Saves" then the problem is fixed however...
    - I want "Emunand Saves = Partial" because I don't have enough space on Wii System Memory for all the DLCs in Just Dance 4. If I store it on SD card then game play is slow.
    - If I set "Emunand Saves = Full" then my Wii remotes will lose sync when the game launches
    - I have "Emunand Channels = Full" if that matters
    - Regarding the black screen issue, I have to wait probably 30 secs before it starts to work

    So does anyone know how to update USB Loader GX 3.0 to r1208 as being the latest change?

    Found update by googling "USBLoader GX rev1208 - Beta"

    But the theme downloader still hangs at 100% in rev1208 for me. I am just going to stick with WiiFlow instead.

    All SVN updates can be found at the official SVN website here: they're all located under Issues>"[BETA] Official beta test issue thread for new SVN builds"( Type Status Priority Owner Summary)

    Just search for the updates released by "" so basically the newest SVN he released(r1208) can be found here

    Anyways I've never had any issues downloading themes. In fact I've downloaded several. Then again I'm using r1207. Are you sure it might not be your SD card? I'd try using the release from above.

    Also every skin can be found here USB Loader GX sorts them by Most Downloads. Even though I've downloaded skins from USB Loader I still like to download from there as it offers more sort options.

    Are you sure you are using r1208?
    Maybe you installed (copied) the boot.dol of 1208 on your SD card, but you are still launching the USBLoader from the Channel on your Wii (Channel which is version 3.0, not beta!)
    You need to launch the loader from the homebrew channel.

    To be sure, go to settings > Credit. You will see the version number you are currently using.

    You are right Cyan! I need to get my eyes re-checked. The problem was Priiloader auto-booting the 3.0 dol so I replaced it with UNEO forwarder DOL V5.1 and it's booting the correct (r1208) dol now.

    I have no problem with the theme downloader anymore but I can't figure out why there is a long pause at the beginning of a DLC game (ex. Just Dance 4).

    Not sure how I can describe it but if I set "emunand" to "partial" for the purpose of emulating game saves (ex. DLC) and then launch the game "Just Dance 4" with global settings defaulted (excluding the emunand setting) it would hang after the first two screens (1. tells you how to hold the wii remote, 2. "music downloads not related by ESRB"). So the next screen should have come up right away "Unbisoft... etc" but it doesn't and if I wait 30-60 secs then the game works.

    I can live with the delay but is this working as designed or can this be fixed?

    P.S. I can turn off emunand and the game will function normally but that would defeat the purpose of using it.
