    Sorry haven't touched the Wii in over a year. Last i remember i needed the wad version to install it on the wii dashboard. Otherwise you gotta go to the homebrew channel.
    Unless there is another way to put it on the dashboard.

    Oh, you mean a channel forwarder. That isn't essential, but if you want one here you go.

    For Wii:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/usbloadergx/files/Releases/Forwarders/USB Loader GX-UNEO_Forwarder_5_1_AHBPROT.wad/download

    For vWii:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/usbloadergx/files/Releases/Forwarders/USB Loader GX-UNEO_Forwarder_5_1_AHBPROT_vWii (Fix).wad/download

    You'll still need to copy the new modded USB Loader GX version to your SD card.

    Edit: NEVERMIND: I misunderstood what you asking.

    There's a forwarder that allows you to have the loader on your Wii startup screen alongside the disc channel and other channels. That forwarder should continue to work even if you update the USB Loader GX files on your SD card to a newer version. You should not need to "reinstall" the wad for the forwarder; you just need to update the contents of the USB Loader GX folder within your Apps folder on your SD card.

    Is there any way to easily switch between viewing Wii and GC games? (E.g. a single button press, toggle an icon, etc.)

    My young kids get confused between different versions of games, and going into the sources or categories tabs and selecting/deselecting options every time is a bit too fiddly.

    Hello,

    I do not think there is an option to select this or that game.

    otherwise you have this tab to display the games ==>[​IMG]

    Yeah, that's what I'm currently doing but it's not ideal.

    For example, to switch from Wii to GC takes 4 clicks (open menu, deselect Wii, select GC, OK) rather than a single click. Too tricky for my kids to do themselves, especially if using a GC controller.

    Would be nice if there was an icon to cycle between categories, then i could just set up GC and Wii categories and do it that way.

    @blackb0x A week or two ago, we were trying to get Accio Hacks fixed (a cheat code app that's related to GeckoCodes). While we didn't get that working, HTTP traffic is now enabled for GeckoCodes.org. Thus, USB loaders can now download cheat codes again. One thing I didn't know is it's being hosted by GameHacking.org, so the site's staying up. (They fixed a problem with the site a few weeks ago after I alerted them about it.) Oh, and the DDoS protection was turned off.

    @Larsenv Yea, when looking at some debug info recently I noticed that the connection changed. It looks like they now use Anonymize instead of BitMitigate.

    I was going to alter my code to remove the BitMitigate cookie, but I don't think I'll bother in case they eventually revert to using BitMitigate again.

    And you might think that the site will stay up, but you can't guarantee that they won't drop support for HTTP again. So at least my code makes both USB Loader GX and WiiFlow somewhat future proof.

    great news but too late. This would've saved us from having to install wolfssl in wiiflow lite. I guess it's not a total waste of time. at least now we have the ability to download from secure sites if we ever need to.

    I've a problem with my usb again...
    I updated the latest mod and changed the cios of the loader to 58 and since then my pendrive has stopped detecting, it only detects the games I have on my SD. I put it on my PC and a window pops up saying it needs to be formatted, my poker face when I saw it :wtf:
    I did it but now it doesn't detect it more :wacko:
    I always have some trouble with this loader :gun:

    A USB flash drive? It's just that this issue is typically seen either when you haven't unmounted the device correctly as data was being written to it or the device is getting close to reaching it's maximum amount of write and erase cycles.

    With Windows you can sometimes fix the issue. You'd just open up command prompt as an administrator and enter "chkdsk e: /x /f" replacing "e" with the drive letter. This won't work if you've gone ahead and formatted the drive though.

    Yes, it's a flash drive.
    Well, I'll try to do what you told me to do.
    I've noticed that if it detects my usb, but not the games! At the bottom I can see the space of my usb, why are not the games shown? I tried to test cfg usb loader and yes shows them.

    Go into USB Loader GX's settings and check that the custom paths are correct. They should be, but since your flash drive started acting up you should double check :)

    The main reason Cyan changed to using IOS58 is because it improved support for USB HDDs. It might make things worse for some USB flash drives though, in which case you should change it back to IOS249.

    Hello.:)

    You can try as Alternative WiiFlow v5.2.0 or Configurable USBLoader MOD v70 r78.11 (which has several very good Themes included).:)

    Thank you.:)

    Hi all! I came across some plugins for USB Loader GX on Youtube "r1261" to be exact, and I can't find out how to install these. I've tried searching all over this site. Can someone please help me or direct me to the correct thread for this? Thanks!!
