    Does anybody know how to access usb storage devices after a IOS_ReloadIOS? Or does anybody have an idea about this?

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Code excerpt:

    fatInitDefault();

    [...]

    (sd + usb working fine)

    [...]

    fatUnmount("sd");
    fatUnmount("usb");

    // Deinit sd card, without this sd card doesn't work after the ios reloading
    sdio_Startup(); // maybe this is not necessary
    sdio_Deinitialize();

    IOS_ReloadIOS(x);

    fatInitDefault();

    [...]

    (sd working fine, usb NOT working)

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I guess i need some kind of usb storage deinitialize which is similar to sdio_Deinitialize for sd card. I searched the source of libogc and libfat for this, but everything i tried didn't work.


    PS: If there's no way to solve this problem, i wouldn't be surprised that this the reason why the homebrew channel doesn't have usb support

    I heard from too many people being banned there in the minute they asked a question. I hope there are other developers capable to solve this.

    Well it's for SoftChip, and SoftChip is considered "piracy loader", which is sadly not untrue.

    PS: Only usb for config not backup loading!

    People are saying it is possible. One mentioned something about a hidden SEEPROM flag... don
    t wanna even know what that meant! [​IMG]

    Another was already hot on my tail... and knew that I was fishing... so the answer was definately being possible. Now we're back to square one...sorry I couldn't be of more help. [​IMG]

    If it is for SoftChip, ask in the SoftChip IRC channel (irc://chat.freenode.net/SoftChip). When I had a problem making a version that doesn't use a configuration file, someone helped me figure it out fairly quickly (although it was a really stupid mistake).
