How to load game from usb for Wii

This is just for educational purpose.

This work only after Homebrew Channel is install, for instruction on how to install Homebrew Channel click here.

You will require 2 softwares:

1.Download USB Loader GX (2.0 r1037) from HERE

2. WBFS Manager from HERE. (64-bit version of WBFS Manager, download from HERE; if you need MAC download HERE. )


Steps of installing:

1. Adding Software in Wii first:

  1. USB Loader GX – Quick install information; after using WinRar, 7-Zip, or RarZilla to extract the USBLoaderGX rar file, there will be a number of folders that are to be copied to the SD card.
  2. Copy the USBLoaderGX folder to the Apps folder on your SD card. This is the homebrew app version of USB Loader GX and will run from the HBC menu.
  3. Wad folder-in the wad folder will be two files; to run USB Loader GX as a channel, copy the file usually named USB Loader GX rXXX-ULNR.wad to the wad folder on your SD card. Install this wad using Wad Manager.
  4. Copy the folders named codes, config, images, and txtcodes unchanged to the Root directory of your SD card. Note that the images folders are where you will store game cover art.

After downloading run the setup and install the software. Run the Software and attach a usb HDD or atleast 4GB USB . The USB drive which you are going to use will be reserved for Wii and you will not be able to use it on a PC.
