    Hello, is there a way to get back to USB loader to switch games? It always reboots the wii instead of returning. I have tried using preloader but it seems like the settings arent saved between sessions. It is probably something I am doing wrong.

    Thanks in advance

    Install the dol (or forwarder in dol format) in preloader
    In preloader settings:
    Autoboot = File
    Return to = Preloader
    Save and exit

    Thanks, I got it to work. Am I correct that the only way to get back to the System Menu is holding reset while turning on and then select system menu?

    Is it possible to achieve the same thing without the preloader?
    thanks in advance

    that's why the usb loader needs an exit menu with the choices:
    - return
    - system menu
    - homebrew channel

    It most likely already has those choices (at least GX has)
    But if you choose system menu, preloader will jump in and boot the USB loader again.
