It would be awesome if someone could make this into a stand-alone channel.
Also, how can I move the loader to be the first homebrew on the HBC list?
Everything was working great until I tryed to install smash bros brawl, it froze and crashed at 40% and looks like it bricked my hardrive....great....oh well it wasn't a big or new hardrive for that matter anyway.
EDIT: after constantly plugging and unplugging my hardrive my pc finally recognized my hardrive again! was able to reformat it and start over. I think the issue was the hardrive didn't have enough space for brawl and it didn't know how to handle it.
EDIT2: Apparently it's just brawl that has an issue, I don't think the loader supports dual layer discs yet.
Hi all I'd just like to run through the steps I did for getting this to work in case anyone is having problems.
I started with my western digital passport 500gb that was already formatted to NTFS. I used Vista's partition manager to shrink that down 20gb. I then told the manager to not format that new 20gb partition except for raw data (it's an official partition just no file system).
I ran the cIOS36 rev9 without hitch. USB Loader loads up and I tell it I want to install a game. It lists possible partitions and both the 465gb NTFS and 20gb RAW partition show up. I clicked on the 20gb partition and it formatted it in a few seconds.
With my burn of Madworld in the drive I clicked install game again and the drive motor clicks and the game begins installing. Took about 30min but Madworld is now installed to my USB drive and runs smooth and fast like any good USB 2.0 ISO
