    Hello, last year I used WiiGator to boot backups, here in May 2009, it seems as though this loader is obsolete.

    I've been reading stickies and whatnot, but I haven't found what I'm looking for.

    Right now, I'm asking, what is the best Wii ISO Loader available?

    There's a whole bunch of hard drive ISO loaders now.
    They all offer pretty much the same compatiblity, they just look different. You have one that looks kinda like the system menu, there are several coverflow-like ones.

    I've read up about the USB Loader, but right now I'm not capable of using it.

    I'm looking for the best compatible backup loader.

    Wiigators Gamma loader is prob the best one to use if you want something thats easy
    People have different opinions so you wont get a straight answer on this.

    Well gamma is still the latest release.
    But SoftChip still seems to be in active development

    SoftChip has better compatability.

    Disc based backup launching:
    NeoGamma R2 or the latest SoftChip if you want to use a loader
    cioscorp if you don't care to mess up your system, allows to play backups from the disc channel

    Usb:
    Well, there are at least 2 different kinds of loaders, the ones that use Waninkoko's cIOS(IOS249), which are most usb loaders (>90%?) and the ones that use Kwiirk's/Hermes' cIOS(IOS222). Hermes' cIOS is compatible with usb devices as lan adapters and usb microphones.


    Sorry, but no. You have to compare with NeoGamma R2 if you take the latest SoftChip.

    What about games like Red Steel that work after switching apploader (With your Toy)?

    Copy the .dol as boot.dol into a folder under the apps folder on your sd card.
