I'm getting the error: Reading WAD data…ERROR! (ret = -1). I don't understand, as I've installed this on another wii before. I tried using a different SD card to no avail.

"Start the Homebrew Channel and select to launch "/apps/InstForwarder/boot.dol" "

That doesn't make any sense. Select what?

Its funny how who ever made the ios236 installer doesnt know anything about piracy laws, games that are no longer sold by the original person who released it can be downloaded off the internet legally so the shit brain wasted my time from his ignorance.

I spent hours struggling with an issue where USB Loader would recognise one USB drive but not another and it turned out to be because it was formatted using the newer GPT partitioning system rather than MBR.
Whilst Windows had no issues seeing it and formatting it as FAT32, USB Loader always saw it as WBFS and attempting to format it within USB Loader on the Wii seemed to succeed but then the format completed instantly and the software could still not read the disk.

The following steps were required in command prompt (run as Administrator and press Enter after each line):
list disk (to ensure you select the correct one)
select disk # (where # is the number of the disk listed in the previous step)
clean (this will wipe everything off the drive you selected)
convert mbr

Now you can proceed to create a new partition and USB Loader will detect it.

I am writing this here as none of the tutorials seem to mention this. I tried to update the wiki post to add this but don't seem to have permission.

I'm not sure if people still work on this stuff, but i used vWii (I believe that is the name for the wii menu within the wii u yes?) to install homebrew on. I tried installing this because most of my wii discs are scratched, but for some reason can still be read by my computer.

However, when trying the installation I get error -1017 or something like that, mentioning something about a downgrade. Can somebody help me with this, perhaps?

I swear I had done all that, but I did it again (except for installing IOS58, since I'd already updated to ver. 4.3). I then went back & repeated a bunch of other things, including setting USBLoader to use IOS248 instead of IOS224-mload. That also allowed my games to actually load, as USBLoader was previously useless.

Well i dont know how many times i've tried installing the softmods and it Always fails at the same Point.
Letterbomb: Check.
d2x: Fail. Says there is a stub in 249 and it consistently freeze the wii when trying to overwrite that stub.
I can load up other stuff like usb loaders but it will not start any games just switch back to HBC.
Can the wii be bricked?

How the hell do you recompile it? I'm relatively new to wii modding, and I have the exact same issue.

So, I don't really now if this place is still alive and im not sure if it has been mentioned before but I have a problem I could't find posted so here it goes:

When I attempt to install IOS236 it loads to the first screen (where it asks to press 1 or start) but before I can do anything my wiimote turns of, if I try to turn it back on it just won't recognize it (the led lights on it just keep on flashing) I am not sure what to make out of this, Not even sure it's a problem with the installation.

Any help is apreciated

by Dun (guest), 06 Oct 2015 14:54

HELP HELP HELP by Joey FrankenJoey Franken, 30 Sep 2015 21:12

UPDATE: Working directly with DacoTaco on this one. Will update with resolution once we have it.

In short, after following all of the directions on this site cfg usb loader works great and I have no issues backing up/playing games from a usb HDD. Since we only use the Wii for games, and we no longer need to use the actual discs, I wanted to have the Wii boot directly to cfg. I installed priiloader for this and it works great, except that it seems to not use the edited meta.xml file to use ios 248. With priiloader configured to autoboot to an installed file (which is cfg), it throws the 249 is a stub error. If I use HBC to launch cfg, it has no issues. I have tried Google to find a resolution, but no luck thus far.

Wondering if anyone else has tried this, run into issues, and if they were able to resolve it.

Thanks in advance!

You'll need to format it to fat32, that works best. NTFS is iffy.

I am having a similar problem. I downloaded Homebrew on my Wii, and created a folder on an empty SD card (formatted to FAT32). I placed the savegame extractor and installer in it and plugged the SD card into my Wii. Once I opened homebrew there was nothing, just the bubble screen. I have tried this on several SD cards with do different results. This is my first time using Homebrew, and any help would be greatly appreciated!

Just for fun i decide to see what your anti-piracy thing was. I like how you guys work. :)

Hi, I am trying to run Xenoblade Chronicles through USB.
I have a FAT32 hard drive that I have successfully used for another game. I followed the instructions here, so d2x in 248.
Tried both Configurable USB Loader and USB Loader GX.
I have a Mac so I've used "wit" to copy the game to the hard drive (wit-gui at first, then tried wit on the command line).

Nothing worked so far. Has anyone been able to run Xenoblade Chronicles using a hard drive?

Hi, I have been able to play Mario Galaxy (I've only tried two games so far) from my hard drive using Configurable USB Loader, and I am using only one partition.
I followed the steps on the website and I have a FAT32 partition with a folder named "usb-loader" (config files?) and another folder named "wbfs" (games), and it works.

Currently I have a working system with Configurable USB Loader and am able to play my games from the external HDD. The HDD has two fat32 partitions. One for configuration files and the other for game files. I only have a handfull of games and would like move them to a thumbdrive. The problem is that a thumbdrive cannot have two partitions on it. Linux lets you do it but windows and the Wii do not recognize the second partition.
How do people use thumbdrives for configurable USB loader? Do they use the thumbdrive in-conjunction with an SD card (config files)? Is it possible to have the config files and game files on the same partition? If so what settings do I need to change?

Thanks for any help.
