How to use USB Loader GX on my WII

Getting started with USB Loader GX
Updated May 12, 2012 by


Welcome to the Wiki for USB Loader GX. USB Loader GX is a USB loader for the Wii, and it's purpose is to allow playing your game backups from your USB drive. It is based off of Waninkoko's original USB loader, with a gui based off of libwiigui by Tantric. This loader has the look and feel of the original system menu for the Wii by Nintendo, and offers many powerful functions.
