I wanted to softmod my wii, I came across 2 great resources I first followed this tutorial YouTube - Wii Hack Tutorial - How to Hack Your Wii in 7 minutes! Simplest tutorial on youtube! using the files in the discription to install the homebrew channel. I have firmware 4.0 so it was great, although some of the data in the download was a bit aged. So I had homebrew I went to this guide How to Store/Load Wii Games via USB Hard Drive on System Menu 4.0 [Slick Tricks Part 2] and attempted to add on the USB loader. He uses USB Loader GX with this link Downloads (USB Loader GX) I downloaded the easy windows installer, and it installed it in the apps menu on my SD card. I loaded it in homebrew and it went to a black screen, no errors, just a black screen. So I read something on USB Loader GX's home page about not being compatable with ealier versions of cIOS (I don't know what it is, people seem to be conserned with what it is, I don't care, I just want it to be compatable.) So I installed what was listed as a newere version. The cIOS38_rev14-Installer.rar was down from the USB Loader GX's download page, so I looked it up, got a copy and installed it. Thought I might have a compatable cOIS version and it might work. USB Loader GX still loads to a black screen (which requires unpluging to restart) I tried another USB loader though I want USB Loader GX. I tried adding "Waninkoko's original USB Loader 1.5" to the apps folder, it loaded, then said "Custom IOS could not be loaded! (ret = -41000) press any button to restart..." What can I do to get some (high compatibility) USB loader working?
