    I have an NTSC-U Wii with cIOS rev14 installed. Both in USB Loader GX, as well as WiiFlow, I have trouble running NTSC-K (Korean) games. In WiiFlow, it just freezes, while in USB Loader GX, the screen turns black.

    I'm pretty sure that when the ISO is burned to disc and run, it should play fine (either in GeckoOS or some other backup loader).

    But is there a way to make it work with a USB loader?

    Searching the forums or google gives me no answer..

    Which game? You might be using one of the ones that doesn't work on USB Loaders at all.

    Does anyone have success running Korean games on PAL Wii's?

    I think you need to use a korean IOS or a regular IOS patched to allow reading korean discs. Korean games have their own common key.

    Option 1:
    Get cioscorp cIOS for the korean IOS and play the game from disc

    Option 2:
    Create a cIOS based on korean IOS but with usb module from the regular cIOS(don't know where to start with that)

    Option 3:
    Patch support for korean games into the cIOS. There's some PatchMii clone for this, but it's based on old IOS and old cIOS

    Option 4:
    Just get games from the correct region!
