Hi, so I seem to have a problem with usb loader gx. I have it installed as a channel already, but if I try to open it, it will result in a black screen and no response. I've run CMDVDX34 through HBC already, and went through the 3 steps. What signs or confirmations can I look for to know that I am on the right track or what I am missing? So as someone previously said before, the scene has changed quite a bit. If I'm getting all this right, basically, an IOS is an operating system that works inside the wii, and you can have several of these. Only one works at one time. A cIOS is something, that hackers have made.. as a bypass to allow certain programs to work? So my question is, why are there so many different IOS.. that seem to be used in all sorts of guides? What happened to all the good old TP hack, install the .wad, and bang, you're good to go? Anyway, here are my specs: 3.3U, IOS36, HBC installed Thanks for all the help in my problem and satisfying my curiosity!
