When downloading USB Loader GX, you have several options:
  • You can download the DOL (USBLoaderGX_v3.0_IOS249.dol) and run it with the Homebrew Channel like any other app
  • You can download the WAD (USBLoaderGX_v3.0_IOS249.wad) and install it with a WAD manager. This gives you a channel in your Wii menu that you can use.
  • If you want a combination of both, download the DOL and place it on the correct spot ( SD:/apps/ ). Then download the forwarder WAD and install it with a WAD manager.
