    Hello,

    since the latest come up of the Brazilian Method the most Wii U owners use their USB drive for Wii U games. Wii U and the vWii can't use the same HDD and it is not possible to use 2 HDDs simultaneous, so you would have to reconnect the drives manually if you still want to use USB Loader GX for Wii backups.

    There are also Wiiflow and the Cfg Loader, which can load Wii backups from the SDcard, instead of an USB drive, but they aren't in active development and they don't match the Wii menu design. I tested them, and both have issues, when a Wii U USB drive is connected.

    So is there any interest by an developer to fork USB Loader GX and strip out all USB and Wii-only related features and add wbfs loading from SDcard instead?

    I know there are some problematic games, which won't work without issues from the SDcard, but I think that it would be nice to have an all-in-one solution without switching loaders and USB drives.

    Thanks!

    Thank you for the answer. Ok, I will test this with a ustealth-hidden stick plugged in one of the front USB slots, if there are issues when the Wii U HDD is also connected.

    My hope was to find a solution with only the SDcard to keep the front connectors of the Wii U clean.

    Sure. But my problem with this solution is based on optical aspects, because I have my Wii U in the living room. I don't want to sound fussy, but seeing the cables would annoy me every day ;-)

    Yes, I have to go with this workaround. But I still think, USB Loader GX with SD support would be the best solution.

    I just tried it and my HDD doesn´t spin down, so it´s no option.
    Perhaps with IOSU hax we will get some new options down the road to have vWii and Wii U stuff on the same HDD.
    Perhaps some kind of container for Wii stuff in WiiU mode, similiar to the Wii Virtual Console.
