    Last night I was setting up a new USB HDD and was running homebrew from HBC on it. It seems that two of the loaders I tried USB Loader GX and CoverFloader dump when they are invoked via HBC on USB drive when attempting to mount WBFS. I've not tried others yet. To see if this was a universal scenario I tried Wad Manager and was able to select USB HDD as the source of my Wads and install without dump so I know it's possible for an app launched via USB to again access USB. Is this being looked into as a solution? Even though it's slower I'm looking forward more to using USB as my primary homebrew source. If not I can provide the stack info later and maybe this can become a viable way to use USB loaders when run from FAT partition on USB? Again, sorry if this has already been brought up. Cheers!

    Currently 14, I haven't experimented with loading homebrew from USB prior to 14's installation. At first I thought I discovered a fluke until I read that it was actually a feature of HBC to run apps from USB if no SD card is inserted

    Also, thanks for showing interest. [​IMG]
