    ok, i heard that with usb loader gx you can use FAT32 sd and put wbfs files in it. but i also heard that you need a cIOS that isn't for vWii, what can i do?

    i used this at time:

    it looks like it makes you do the same things the guide does, except ios backupping, because is a bit old- will it work?

    im sorry you'll not find many people around here that will recommend you tube videos over the written step by step tutorial , i suggest you follow the written tutorials i linked ... the videos may be ok but may also miss crucial parts... like backing up your IOS to protect you in case you follow some dumb ass youtube guide :)

    You HDD doesn't need to be formatted to wbfs. Anyone still doing that, needs to catch up with the times! (Like 5 years back!) Formatting to FAT32 with 32K clusters, or if you really must, NTFS! Follow the guide given to you. It walks you through every step needed. It's very easy to follow!

    I thought you don't know how to format it to fat32.
    Sry I have no experience in vwii modding.

    I think so, if you have your modded CIOS files installed.

    How to do the softmod for vWii.

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/full-vwii-softmod.339899/

    If you really must use USB Loader GX, and not wiiflow, then here it is.

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/usb-loader-gx.149922/

    With all three of the major wii game loaders, you just stick your games in a folder. Then tell the loader to search for new stuff. As long as your Wii/Wii U is online, you can also download the game covers. It's all very easy, if you do a bit of reading, and actually load the apps up, and see what options they have.
