    So I bought my wii yesterday, installed the latest softmod, everything's fine..Except..
    I want to put USB Loader GX on my wii menu, More specifically the channel.

    I tried to use the guide/wiki thing in the 4.2 hack guide but all the links are outdated and old and I don't want to chance "Bricking" my new WII.

    If anyone can direct/help me setup USB Loader GX with up to date info I would highly appreciate it, I don't necessarily need my hand held, I just need some sort of starting guidance and I should be able to figure the rest out on my own.
    With that being said, I tried downloading Wad_manager 1.7 and the only thing on the inside was the .DOl file and I even tried to put it in the apps folder, but it didn't show up.

    Thank you in advance, I appreciate any kind of help.

    I have my wii modded and I have UDB LGX installed to my apps, the problem mainly comes with the fact that I dont have a link for the newest WADMAN 1.7

    The link givin from the main guide is
    http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/ho...use/wad-manager

    If you follow the link it gives it brings you to http://filetrip.net/f11391-WAD-Manager-1-7.html.
    Inside the RAR is just a WAD-Manager_v1.7.dol
    My problem comes that its just that file with some readmii's that dont help because even when i put that file into the apps folder it wont show. Example : http://img714.imageshack.us/img714/977/apps.jpg

    Last time I checked most apps are suppose to come with a meta.xlm and some icon files and whatnot but its not provided in any link.


    Quick question: Am I just suppose to rename the WAD-Manager_v1.7 file to BOOT, is that safe?
