    NEW TEST VERSION 1.1 OFFICIALLY WORKING FOR ME ON 3.2U!

    One of the other threads was closed, so I decided to open this one up. If this topic needs to be merged, than do so. [​IMG]

    Note: Your boot.dol file should go in "/apps/usb_loader" Also, make sure you do not have a nunchuck plugged in when you select the channel (Thanks Master Mo) and thanks to loopguy for his forwarder dol [​IMG]

    This was tested working on my 3.2U Wii and takes 15 blocks of memory. Make sure you have something like Preloader before you attempt an install:

    I get a code dump for some reason. I did just get the new 1.1 version of the loader, but it works fine in the HBC.

    I was using another forwarder channel, which worked fine before. But now it gives nothing but codedumps. I think this is the usb loader's own fault, it doesn't like being launched by a forwarder through a channel I guess. It cannot mount the USB then for some reason. Because when I disconnect the USB storage device, it will launch.

    Seems like it. The light on my flash drive blinks a few times before it crashes, so there is at least some activity going on.

    That I'm not sure, but I have had problems between trying WADS on different system menu versions, so the region might apply as well.

    I do have a PAL Wii, but I don't see why this app would be region specific (unless dol forwarders have to access something special and specific to that region?). Like kedest said, if you remove the USB device it boots fine. But that kind of defeats the point of a USB loader. [​IMG]

    Hmmm, guess somebody might have to page SpaceJump so I can update the WAD [​IMG]:

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=144423

    EDIT: The people having problems, are you using SDHC cards or regular SD? I'm using a regular SD myself and I'm not sure if the forwarder DOL for this supports SDHC.

    I'm using a normal SD, so not HC
    but there is a dol download link in that topic from spacejump

    That's the dol I used for my WAD, so for now, I'm stumped. [​IMG]

    ah ok. Guess we'll have to wait and see where the problem is then. The forwarder or the loader itself. My guess is it's the loader itself

    Normal SD here too. I wonder what the problem is with the loader then, it works fine as a channel.

    It doesn't like forwarders for some reason, I guess.

    Can someone test this new version I made?

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/mhujzjmzm0w/...2U_+_Sound).zip

    loopguy was kind enough to hook me up with his forwarder dol, so if it doesn't work now, it just might be something I did in packing the WAD.

    The USB Loader dol should be under "apps/usb_loader"

    Hmmm, if you're on 3.2U, then it might be something I am doing when I create the WAD between WadStudio 0.060 and using padding files. Might have to look into a new method to pack this...

    Oeps,

    Forgot to say!

    I'm on 4.0 (through Waninkoko's 4.0 upgrader [​IMG] )

    But Loopguy's forwarder also gives a code dump screen, maybe i'll downgrade again to 3.2 to see if it works [​IMG] (did downgrade already once to test something out)

    GRRRR! I wouldn't need to ask others to test this if UPS could deliver my drive already! [​IMG] Thanks for testing Djoen.
