    a total noob here that needs help, I have no idea which USB Loader to install? I have narrowed it down to only these 2 USB Loaders, it's either the Ultimate USB Loader(7.4 version) or the USB Loader GX(V 1.0), what are the differences between the 2 USB Loaders? I would like as much help as I can get here, so please select 1 of the 2 USB Loaders and explain why as well, I am also planning on using these 2 programs as well with the USB Loader that I choose(WBFS Manager 3.0 and USB Loader GUI-FX), thanks for all of the help

    Why not install both of them and use them yourself and figure which one you like better and then use that one.

    Well to explain what each does this will help http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/index.php/USB_Loader_Releases

    As for what other people like:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=154465 (Look at the poll result)

    I personally like Ultimate USB Loader by Shizza, but it look like he has joined force with USB Loader GX (http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=149922), so I think the next time that I upgrade, whenever cIOS v11 come out, I will give USB LoaderGX a shot

    Sorry, I think you and I have were talking about different GX the one that I am referring to is this http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=149922

    WBFS Manger 3.01 is def a must!!, I use that to install/del game, I disable that ability in the loader, just in case either I am stupid or my GF accidentally press a button.

    is it possible to use both of them on the same USB drive? I have the Seagate FreeAgent Go 500GB drive, can I use 1 partition for the Ultimate and another partition for the GX?

    You only need one game partition, just use the WBFS Manager 3.0.1 to format and put as many games on there as you would like (I assume that you have ISO), the two usb loader can read from the same game partition, you don't need a separate one for each.

    thanks for all of the help, I will install both loaders with their forwarder channels respectively, that way I can use whichever loader I want to use that day, I didn't know that I could use more than 1 USB Loader and that the USB drive can play off of as much loaders as you want, again thanks for the help

    I see that the USB Loader GX suggests to use cIOS rev9 but I have rev10 installed, do I remove rev10, is that possible? or can I just install rev9? thanks

    Don't uninstall anything. If you want to go back to rev 9, run the rev 9 installer. If you want to go back to 10 afterwards just run the rev 10 installer.

    I am running rev 10 and has worked perfectly so far, but as nabster said you can just install rev 9 or rev 10 whichever works for you

    GX works fine with rev10 except for backing up DBZ BT 3 this one time.
