    1. current "latest" is r1260.
    You may have to update twice if you have a revision before r1256. (one to latest googlecode, second to latest real revision from sourceforge)
    If the internal update menu doesn't work, it's due to googlecode which closed their servers.
    you'll have to update manually to a revision > r1257

    2. You need a Ycable on WiiU if your drive is not externally powered.

    3. USBLoaderGX has an issue with HDD USB3.0 detection with cIOS. I don't know why. Set the loader's IOS to 58 (like wiiflow) and it should work.

    If you are saving your games to emunand then skyward sword wont work make sure you are saving games to the system memory.

    1. Launch USBLoaderGX without the HDD connected.
    Be sure you see the revision number on the launch screen, if not you probably are loading an old channel (not an official release). launch from HBC instead.

    2. go to settings > Loader settings

    3. search the line "Loader's IOS"
    edit the value from 249 to 58
    Do not edit the "Game's IOS" line. it must be 249 or even 250 for better game compatibility.

    4. Exit the loader, reconnect your drive, start the loader.
    If you don't see any games, be sure to enable Wii (or anything else) in the 4th icon in the top menu.
