    Does anyone know if Waninkoko is developing a new WADManager? If so, it would REALLY be nice to have USB & SDHC support built-in!! Hey... Maybe he can just add the code into his current USB Loader!?!

    I'm not sure if Waninkoko will view this thread, or not, but if you are out there reading... I just wanted to say, "Thank You!" It's really nice to have someone that continually releases quality applications that benefit the whole community! [​IMG]

    If there's anyone out there that can get in-touch with him, would you please ask him about this! THANKS!

    WadManager is not compatible with many USB drives. For example, my kingstone 4.0 GB in Wandmanager gives an error ret=-1, while in his new USB loader 1.4 it gets read. (was giving ret -1 in his previous versions). I guess its his (30 seconds timeout that allowed more time to recognize drives)
    I guess that he should be harmonizing his existing software to get them all alligned with as much hardware as possible.

    i guess he wants support for wbfs to store his wad files on the same portable drive as his game images.

    If the question is installing WADs from USB, Ihave found that WAD IInstaller 1.1 works well for it, but I don't think it had SDHC support.

    I haven't used WAD Installer before. I'm a big fan of WADManager. Since both USB and SDHC support is now available, it only makes sense, to me, to incorporate both features into the same application. What do you guys think?

    This is the second time you have said this. Will you elaborate on it further, please? I can find NO documentation, or changelog, that states WADManager is capable of being used on SDHC or USB.

    What WADManager version are you using?
    What System Menu are you on?
    What SDHC cards have you tried?
    What USB devices have you tried?

    Please help the community!

    Thank you, for your information and link, but the December build is NOT an official Waninkoko release! The "official" WADManager v1.3, was last modified on October 27, 2008, 8:21pm. Its README does state that it has SDHC and USB compatibility, however it is also known that this compatibility was highly flawed and rarely worked!

    I merely started this thread, to see if it was possible to persuade Waninkoko to release an "official" bugfix version, to correct these issues.

    You could use Channel File Manager 2.0 beta4, which has full SDHC and USB 2.0 support. Channel File Manager is actually a combination of WAD Manager and AnyTitle Deleter, with a few extra features and bugfixes including USB 2.0 support (using the new cIOS 36). It works fine for me, though I have only used it to install a single WAD (USB Loader).

    the land of lol

    I've heard waninkoko will be making a new wad manager, but this is just a rumour so don't get excited.
    I heard it will have some really cool new features, again a rumour and I won't speculate on what those are just now.

    Remember this guy has lots of things to do and while there are bugs and fixes being done to his newest cIOS and loader I suppose he will put a new wad manager on hold for now. He's made quite a few apps as we all know so his time is getting spread quite thinly over many things, and although he gets help from various people he's left with a lot to do himself.

    I can confirm WiiPowers linked file works flawless for most and allows SDHC and USB.

    You've not wasted anyones time TiMeBoMb so don't be angry or annoyed, soon once the cIOS and loader are improved upon I'm sure he will update some of his other apps including wad manager.

    So will the WADManager that WiiPower posted work with cIOS rev.10, or not?
