I got a used Wii a few months ago now and it came with a 2GB SD card with homebrew already installed. I've updated most of the hombrew apps now. I recently got a new Samsung 1TB HDD and ripped a few of my games to the drive using USB Loader GX. I noticed last night that I was running version V1 of USB GX using IOS222 Rev 938 so I updated to V3 manually on the SD card. I then opened GX V3 and ran its in app update let the latest install then restarted GX and it hanged frozen at initialize drive and I had to pull the Wii's plug (its only frozen once so far straight after the update restart) When using USB GX V1 it booted so fast that I couldn't even see any of the loading text about which IOS it is loading and waiting for the drive to initialize. I'm thinking its probably best downgrading back to GX V1 since its faster with my new HDD Are there any real disadvantages using V1 with IOS222 over V3 USING IOS249? I never bothered to update the channels installed forwarder for GX Its takes the same time when launching from the HomeBrew channel.
