    As I post this question I am reading the stickies at the top to get a better handle on usb loaders. Just wanted to make sure I am going in the right direction in what I am trying to accomplish. I would like to run the Wii games I own off a newly purchased portable hard drive.I currently have the following items/setup:


    - A 3 year old Wii w/ Ver.4.1U (updated to this version then stopped updatting)


    -The Homebrew Channel v.1.0.6 installed using bannerbomb a while back.On a side noted loaded up HBC today (it's been a few months) and it asked if I wanted to update to v1.0.8...would it be wise to update before or after getting a usb loader working?

    - Western Digital My Passport essential 320gb USB HD ($47 + tax @ Target..reviews said it sucks but what the hell)

    I was looking at either Configurable USB Loader or WiiFlow...don't care if it's pretty or not as long as it works well/high compatibility/don't need an engineering degree to figure out. I started reading some guides but most are dated 2009 but imagine things change fast. Also some guides have the order of operations to install a usb loader then HBC so not sure if I screwed myself by installing HBC months back. Any help would be appreciated.

    Download Hackmii installer 0.8
    Use HBC to run the installer.
    Install HBC 1.0.8
    Download Configurable USB Loader
    Extract Configurable USB Loader to app folder in your SD card
    Run Configurable USB Loader from HBC

    Thanks for the reply. I will try that but can't believe it would be that simple. Since I posted I have been reading and reading (oh and reading some more) my head feels like its about to pop. Things such as trucha bug restorer, cIOS38, hermes, NUS downloader and all other sorts of weird sh*t. And every how to gives either ambiguous directions or unrelated steps (from one guide to the next) are given. If someone could just point me to the guide that you used when trying to install a USB loader and HD on a Wii w/ HBC 1.0.8 installed and system menu 4.1U. Damn I should of just remained happy with running NES games through HBC [​IMG]

    You're forgetting cios 249, which goes before the loader.
