    Unhappy Black Screen, Error Codes with Wiiflow

    Hi. I I recently discovered the beauty of wiiflow and after some extensive research I decided to go ahead and try to install it. Prior to running wiiflow, I installed cIOS 249[for the version I'm using] and IOS 58[I read this is a update for external HDD compatibility]. Here is where my problem starts: I can run wiiflow fine from the SD card but when launching it from my external drive I get a black screen with a bunch of codes and returns back to the HBC after 5 seconds. I tried formatting my NTFS HDD to WBFS and FAT32, no luck. I have literally tried all day and read countless posts to no avail. I'm stumped. To the best of my knowledge, I haven't installed much IOS's or cIOS's in the past since I haven't used my Wii much recently and I never really was much into homebrew.

    Here are my specs:

    4.1U System Menu
    cIOS 249
    IOS 58
    IOS61 v19.26[Noticed this while in the HBC, don't know if it's of significance.]
    FAT32 formatted external HDD.
    Thanks!

    Post a syscheck. Instructions here.

    EDIT: I re-read your post and you said you are trying to run it from the hard disk. If that is the case you need two different partitions on your hard disk. One that is fat32 (where wiiflow is installed) and the other wbfs and set to active.

    Thanks for the reply but it says that wiiflow is compatible with fat32 and ntfs? Anyway, If I partition my drive as FAT32 along with WBFS as the active partition of course, how big should the FAT32 partition be and all I need to have in there is the "apps" folder with wiiflow in there correct?

    Been awhile since I used wiiflow but thats how it used to have to be done. I will search around as well and see if I can find an answer for you.

    How specifically are you differentiating "where" you are launching it from?

    There is a guide for wiiflow. Too much spoon feeding is bad.

    Agreed. Did you search the guide for the answer? I had assumed you did since you stated you had been searching all day. Guide is here if you havent read it.

    Yes I had read this guide just before requesting for help. I can't get the external to work but it is listed as compatible. I will go ahead and try again I guess.

    Never hurts to go back and re-read every single line of the very first page of a guide. 99% of the time your answer is there.
