    hi Guys

    Many months ago i managed to get the Hombrew Channel and backup launcher running perfectly

    Then i hear about this USB Loader which i like the sound of

    So i went to Waninkoko Blog

    Downloaded the Two Files ( cIOS36_rev9-Installer.dol & USB-Loader_v1.1.dol)

    Stuck them in the WAD folder of my SD card

    Went to Homebrew channel Then to Custom WAD Manager

    Tried to install the cIOS36_rev9-Installer.dol i got the error ... Reading WAD File...ERROR! (ret = -1)

    So i tried Renaming the .dol to .wad Didnt work same error.

    I then read about needing IOS36-64-v1042.wad so i d/l that and installed that through Custom WM no probs

    and then tried same files again but did not work.

    Can Someone please point me in the right direction as to where im going wrong lol

    Many Thanks Guys

    Are you selecting SD install or Internet install??? if you select SD you need to make sure the files are in the root of the SD card. (Cant link it here). Otherwise, switch to Internet install and let the loader do its magic.

    Because of copyright issues the dol file does not contain the actual wad file.
    If you have the IOS36-64-v1042.wad file, place it in root of the SD card and run the dol from hbc. The dol will read the wad, patch it, and install it as a cios.
    If you don't have it, run the online installation (you can choose when you run the dol). It will then download the wad file, patch and install

    You must NOT use the wad manager : its a .dol.
    Just create folders in the apps directory on your SD card and launch them with homebrew chanel.
    The ".dol" files must be used with homebrew channel.
    Then simply launch cIOS36_rev9-Installer.dol with HBC, and select "web install" (you will not need any wad)

    And make sure you rename the files to boot.dol

    Thanks Guys That got the rev9 installed

    Much Appreciated

    Now do i do same for the Usb Loader as i run that and in right hand box it says

    error Could not initialise USB subsustem! (ret - -1)
    Press any key to Restart...

    Sorry to be a noob guys [​IMG]

    EDIT:

    It was the usb Stick i have just tried an external harddrive and its asking me to format a partition

    Many Thanks

    Is there anyway of getting this usb loader as a channel rather than having to load Homebre channel each time as that means u need SD card in Wii at all times?

    Thanks for all your help guys

    You can find USB loader 1.1 Chanel version on this forum (use the search button), but I don't really recommend it to you : the internal memory of the wii is very low, and it's always a bit risky to play with it (you can brick it).

    Take your time to see if it worth it : it is not a big deal to go to HBC before launching the game.

    As for me, I have a small SD card (1go) I use only on my wii, and it's not a problem to let it in my Wii at all times...

    There are a lot of channels already for this loader. I have installed a forwarder channel. This will load the actual dol from SD. So when an update comes, I only have to replace the dol on sd and the channel can stay the same
