    Hello

    I softmodded my WiiU yesterday, following MrMario2011's guide on youtube (He updated the file package 30 days ago) and i followed every step (Smash stack).

    After i sucessfully dumped keys, nand and IOS236 and whatnot, i went to install some things so i could play backups, using d2x-v10-beta52-vWii
    and picked the following: (Base: 56, Slot: 249) (Base: 57, Slot: 250) and (Base: 58, Slot: 251) then i exited.

    That was pretty much what you had to do, he also included Configurable USB loader, which is suppose to load Wii iso/wbfs files if i'm not wrong. But i didn't get that to work.

    I first had my 8gb USB in fat32, tried loading over some GC iso's (Which i used with Nintendon't) worked perfectly fine.

    Then i wanted to try USB loader, but when i wanted to transfer a wii game to the usb, it's over 4gb, which dosen't work with fat32. Then i tried using NTFS format, but creating a folder in the root called wbfs and placed the game in there (also tried the same method used to load games with Nintendon't) Didn't work.

    After that i decided to download wbsf manager 3.0, and i formatted my 8gb USB to WBFS format, then transfering a iso with the manager, then when i tried loading that up, didn't work either. I've used both USB hubs with all my attempt, and i particulary tried loading USB mass storage, and not SD where my apps are on.

    so, to sum it up abit, GC games worked with nintendont (nothing wrong with the hubs) I also tried using the latest version of USB loader (7.0) but it dosen't work.

    So if you might know anything that can help me, it's appriciated!

    //Zaap

    (Edit 1: Also tried formatting the USB drive to FAT32, the putting in wbsf files made from the iso games, into a wbsf folder, nothing here either)

    (Edit 2: Tried using a new usb flash and a external drive with it's own power supply, i tried using WiiFlow instead, and i can actually explore and see all folders and files (Both usb and external) But when i want to play/mount the wbfs file, it black screens and returns to the wii menu, i also got a mail saying i played Mario Galaxy for 1 second ^^

    If i put the wbsf on the SD card, i can load it up fine and play, but i'd like it to work with USB, if someone could help me with forwarding and stuff, so i don't have to run WiiFlow from the SD, and then maybe possibly use a SDHC for game it that would work? That'd be great.

    I can also include that if i wait out the timer in Configurable USB loader (90) sec, i get the ret=-1 error.)

    well 1st thing, flashdrives are not recomended, heck my flashdrives dont even appear on wiiu menu becuase wiiu crappy power trough usb, also you should always use fat32, you can use isos bigger than 4gb by splitting them, they worked splitted i always use Iso to WBFS and i check if bigger than 4gb split.

    Also how dont they work? can you atleast see them on usbloader menu? does your drive gets mounted when starting usbloader?

    Nothing happends, it straight up says that there's no USB detected. But works with Nintendon't for gamecube iso's. Tried both COnfigurable USB loader and GX.

    well, i formatted it because i knew GCN games work and i only wanted to get wii to work after, they work from both sd and usb, and yes "USB Mass storage" It's searching in, finding nothing

    It seems like WiiFlow finds the USB, and i can browse the files

    I tried loading the game with WiiFlow, but it didn't let me play it (Tried it on dolphin emulator, works fine)

    it could be the usbflashdrive isnt compatible with usbloader codem if you have an hdd with an y cable or its own power supply you should try it.

    Yup, fit 1 wii game on the SD, and it ran sucessfully, Do you think i could forward WiiFlow and then use a SDHC to boot games from?
