    I am pretty late but i decided to buy a wii for my little sister her birthday. After days of looking i found a youtube tutorial that wasn't too old that explained how to install homebrew channel through letterbomb and then continued explaining how to install Usb Loader GX with an SD card.

    Now i have done everything and it works fine, however i wanted to ask if anyone knows a way to make it work without the SD card needing to be inside.

    No, sadly for you, the sd card must be in the wii to use usbloader gx, because usbloader gx and homebrews in general are on the sd card.

    Good evening,

    You put all the contents of your SD on your support USB and to inform your loader (usb loader gx) that the content is on the USB port.
    Support usb in fat 32

    You can use a USB fat32 formatted. SD is just necessary for pretty old homebrew or softmodding your wii first, later on, it just needed to mess with some stuff like nand back up, restore and patches, but if you just want to load games, a USB drive formated as fat32, will do the job.
