If you don't have Bootmii as boot2, you have to make Priiloader boot Bootmii IOS to run usbloaderGX at boot.

I don't remember which post he gave the link to the file, so I reuploaded it here and created a quick readme.
Hope you don't mind Pune. or else I'll remove it.

PS : I never tested it, but I'm confident with Giantpune's work

The missing features will be redone by r-win later.

That is great news! I really hope that the team will continue to develop USB Loader GX on a more regular basis again because in my opinion it is the best loader out there.

I am in need of some help. I have installed GX loader onto my softmodded 4.1E Wii and used WBFS on my externall hdd as well as putting some games on it. I then installed cIOS 222. But when I plug my hdd into my wii and go to start gx loader, it just takes me back to the wii menu. Can anyone help me on this??

sounds like you installed a forwarder but dont have the app on the SD/USB, im guessing your a channel guy if not just pop GX on the SD in the apps/usbloader_gx and name the dol. file to boot.dol and pop it in the usbloader_gx folder, then when you run the forwarder it will load the app off the SD

What I did was when I first put rthe gx loader onto sd card, Im sure I installed a forwarder aswell because I was following the tut to the letter BUT when I went to install cIOS 222, I wiped my sd card clean and copied the cIOS folders over to my sd card then installed cIOS222. Is it possible to install the forwarder onto my hdd and not have to bother with a sd card all together??

I am using priiloader and set usb loader as file bootup (forwarder). My usb loader gx version 92+ (currently using latest 937) continually resets my iso to 222 from 249. Not sure when it resets the default load to 222 but it does. Anyone experience this? Thank you.

I also have no luck in getting the homebrew channel option to work in 92+ (currently latest 937) to startup wiimc, mplayer, or even the homebrew browser. Only Black screen which requires me to physically hold the power button down to shut down. The only thing that works is the opera shortcut app which only works because I suppose it loads the internet channel in the wii system menu.

I hope the next USB loader GX brings back the function to return to loader when you exit a game!

UBLGX is still my preferred loader of choice but I have noticed that CFG USB Loader is better at installing games with tiny scratches and the like! GX is far too sensitive!

Love this thing, just a couple of quick questions:

1. Anyway to boot to it instead of the homebrew menu?

2. Is there a setting to let you kinda... grab and drag?

Thanks


1. Use the forwarder. Get it from the first post of this thread.

2. I don't think so.

I get the Homebrew channel at the moment which I really don't like. Would much prefer even the regular Wii menu to that, but not sure it's possible to get on, so USB Loader GX will do

Why not read the previous page ? at least one page back, it's not too many reading, right ?

use it as bootmii, or set priiloader to boot bootmii.

Sorry if this might of been answered in the topic here, just that as the previous poster mentioned, its a huuuge topic :/.
Any ideas? I also tried to setup the game to its default options, and change the Cios back to 222 and yet it still giving me a black screen.
