    Is it a 3rd party wiimote? Some of them "crash", when they are already turned on, while you start homebrew... can be fixed by taking out the batteries, reinserting them and then turn on the wiimote again

    Does your remote have motion plus built in? Some motion plus built in remotes don't work with some homebrew. Some (most?) homebrew got updated to fix the issue, make sure you're on the most recent versions.

    Otherwise, try another remote.

    I can answer that but I hope you try with a original wii remote and see what happens. Third part remotes can be really tricky, from personal experience a wiiremote I bought from china made me unable to USB Loader GX and due to my others wiiremote was at my family house I was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... scared my Wii might be broken until I tried with an orginal Remote to launch USB Loader GX, and thankfully it worked without any problem *phew*
