    Hi guys, I've recently hacked my Wii U and my vWii and successfully installed two backups loaders: USBLoaderGX and WiiFlow. I made the backups of my games and stored them in a USB stick. I tried to launch my games through WiiFlow but it said that it didn't detect any game. The same goes for USBLoaderGX but I clicked on something and now it acts like an "upgraded" vWii menu. I tried to put the USB stick on the USB port located on the front of the Wii U but when I did that, WiiFlow simply told me that it couldn't detect any USB drive. Here's a picture of the inside of my USB stick. I really don't know where the issue is coming from... [​IMG]

    Hello,

    for the wii U do not use usb keys, it works badly (often black screen or does not work at all)

    prefer an external hard disk with a Y-cable preferably, for better connectivity.

    Format in fat 32 (recommend)

    Yeah but otherwise the key works, it is detected... there's no issue with my folders ? If there's really nothing to do I guess I'll just buy an HDD

    You can try setting the loader IOS in USB Loader GX to IOS58 which should make the games at least show up but they may still fail to launch or have odd crashes or black screens. USB sticks just do not work very well in cIOS and there is no real solution for that. Not really worth the hassle when 1TB USB HDDs are so cheap.

    Ok, so I found one HDD but it contains personal informations that I can't transfer anywhere else. Do I REAALLY have to format the HDD when the Wii U will prompt me to or can I avoid this part ? Also, if I have other folders than "wbfs" will it work ?

    Hello,

    For the vwii mode of the Wii U:

    Save all the contents of your hard drive on your computer, and format your external hard drive with "guiformat 32" ==>http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm

    If the Wii U asks you to format your external hard drive, say NO.Connect your USB support to the back of the Wii U

    For wii U mode:

    Now it is possible to have on the same hard disk (Wii U format) games wii and Gamecube, and play from the menu wii U ==>https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-wiivc-injector-script-gc-wii-homebrew-support.483577/

    Hi, so I formatted my HDD to FAT32 and I deleted everything besides wbfs, now when I launch USBLoaderGX, It detects my game, but it doesn't load the cover and when I click on "start" to play a game, it automatically kicks me back to the home menu. I tried to use WiiFlow but it says that it hasn't detected any games. Any idea on where the issue is ? Maybe I messed up something with the Cios ?

    Hello,

    post a syscheck report following this guide ==>https://gbatemp.net/threads/syscheck-hacksden-edition.356133/


    An advice :

    Always leave the SD card in the wii when playing or other

    Do you have an external hard drive with the Y cable?

    ===> Use "" wii backup manager "" to manage your games <====

    Making a simple copy, pasting of your games on the external hard drive may not work.

    do you have the version of usb loader gx (1272) ??

    I'm going to make the syscheck now, as it stands for the SD card, it is ALWAYS, plugged in my Wii U so no worries about that, I do use an Y cable to plug my HDD to the Wii U, and I use the Ver.3.0 Rev. 1272 of USBLoaderGX. When you talk about simple copy-paste you mean that even if the wbfs folder was alright, it still might not work if I copy-paste ? I'm sure at 99% that I organized my folders correctly, would you like a screenshot of the inside of my HDD ?

    I searched a bit on the internet and found that I may need to install wads on my vWii but I heard that it can cause a brick, I'm scared of this and since I don't know if BootMii will save me or won't I don't want to try that. But if I really have to do that, what are the measures that I can take to avoid a permanent brick ?

    You installed this version of the cios d2x, saw your syscheck report:

    vIOS249 [56] (rev 21010, Info: d2x-v10beta53-alt-vWii): NAND access, USB 2.0
    vIOS250 [57] (rev 21010, Info: d2x-v10beta53-alt-vWii): NAND access, USB 2.0
    vIOS251 [58] (rev 21010, Info: d2x-v10beta53-alt-vWii): NAND access, USB 2.0

    it's not the best version of the d2x cios.

    Install the following d2x cios (version d2x v10 beta 52):

    vIOS249 [56] (rev 21010, Info: d2x-v10beta52 vWii): NAND access, USB 2.0
    vIOS250 [57] (rev 21010, Info: d2x-v10beta52 vWii): NAND access, USB 2.0
    vIOS251 [58] (rev 21010, Info: d2x-v10beta52 vWii): NAND access, USB 2.0
    By following this guide ===>https://gbatemp.net/threads/the-definitive-vwii-hacking-guide.425852/#14


    Then test again usb loader gx, and result ??


    Then repost a new syscheck report, for control.

    Do I have to uninstall the beta53-alt before installing the beta52 ones ? And if it's the case, how to do that ? Also I read that those are better for emuNAND, and sorry if my remark seems dumb but, I don't think I use an emuNAND, but I'll try it anyways.

    afaik, the ios will be overwritten, so there's no need to uninstall it.

    Ok, so it still kicks me back to the home menu/homebrew launcher. The thing is that for some reason, WiiFlow doesn't detect any games where USBLoaderGX does. Also, when I click on the ''Super Paper Mario channel'' the banner loads and the music plays but when I click on start, I get a black screen and get kicked to the home menu tho that doesn't happen for Wii Sports Resort, the channel doesn't appear, it's blank but when you hover on it, it says Wii Sports Resort, when I click on it, there's no music, and the banner remains black. When I click on start, same thing happens, I get kick... I tried to force the video mode to the game's one but still nothing.
    Here's the syscheck :

    Hello,

    @ Gammazeth :

    Syscheck report ==> OK

    Do you correctly place the folders on your SD card (SD card in FAT 32 recommend)?

    What type of SD card do you have?

    Do I have to actually put the games on my SD card ? I'm pretty sure the files for USBLoaderGX and WiiFlow are correctly placed, I can't provide pictures since I'm not at home but I'll try tomorrow. My SD card is in FAT32 btw.

    Hello,

    The folders on your SD card are well placed.

    Are your games not corrupt ??

    On which IOS starts your USB charger gx (58 or 249) ?? (see in the settings of your gx Loader)

    I think the games are bad dumps since one loads it's banner and the other one doesn't.
    I'll check the IOS tomorrow
