My Wii is 4.2u and has been has been soft modded. I can play all of my games from my old USB hard drive, New Super Mario, Guitar Hero, etc. In total noob terminology, what do I need to do to make this thing work?

    Thanks in advance,

    If you need the r28 then just download the r28 and copy/paste over the original dol

    Thanks for this information, but I think it is far from a step by step guide to getting Wiiflow to work. It assumes quite a bit of prior knowledge.

    It would be good for someone with more knowledge than myself to create an "Idiot Guide" for someone that has never even used a Wii before!

    Thanks for the input, but I disagree. I'm not sure how many more steps besides 'Download this package - place it on your sd card - place the sd card in your wii - done' you're looking for. If someone hasn't even used a Wii and are so unfamiliar with the basic terms used here, there are so many resources already on this site they haven't yet taken advantage of.

    Subsidiary guides like this one need to assume a person has already taken the steps needed to modify their consoles and formed a basic concept of the terminology, otherwise already-existent information would become redundant. But just in case they haven't, there are links to some of the most informative guides on this site denoted at the bottom with a bright red heading.

    Basically what I'm disagreeing with here is the need for an "idiot's guide". In my view softmodding is something that should be taken with care and responsibility, and only after a person has done the proper research.

    It's not as simple as
    'Download this package - place it on your sd card - place the sd card in your wii - done'
    You have to do certain things with the items in the package to get it to work don't you.

    Could you be more specific as to what you're having difficulties with?

    To elaborate, once the pack in this guide has been placed on the sd card and the requirements listed for the console have been met, Wiiflow can be launched immediately through HBC. Now if you're looking to install a forwarder channel that will require an additional step, which is listed and described.

    So unless you'd like me to detail the installation procedures of placing the SD card into a Wii console and navigating channels on the system, I'm really not sure what other information you're looking for here. If it's a glossary of terms to explain the details of the guide, that information's already on this site. If it's an explanation of the prerequisites for the app, that information's already on this site. If it's a description of how apps work through HBC, that information's on the site too.

    Now that said, if there's something I've left out that's necessary for people to use this guide to run Wiiflow, I'm happy to add it. But give me something concrete to work with you on.

    Lightbulb Default Theme Changes Coverflow - Fix

    Adding this as answered for someone in newbies discussions:

    If anybody has a problem with the default theme changing the coverflow settings, e.g. your single covers become a wall of covers or custom settings are not remembered.

    I fixed it for my console by creating a new theme based on 'Carbonik' as I made custom music file, custom backround images and custom cursor.

    Easiest way to do this for anyone NOT wanting to make a totally custom theme is as follows:

    1. Connect the HDD (or SD card if files are there) to your PC.

    2. Copy a theme from the theme folder and its .ini file (e.g. Carbonik folder and Carbonik.ini) and paste into a different folder on your PC.

    3. Rename both to a different, but same name (e.g. Customcarb (foldername) and Customcarb.ini)

    4. Copy both of these items back into the 'Themes' folder inside wiiflow folder.

    5. Start wiiflow and unlock (if you have parental code set up) and change the theme to Customcarb and click on 'Back'. You will see 'Please Wait' on the screen (wiiflow.ini being written at this point)


    Now you should have no more changes to your set coverflow layout.

    Excellent work! I like Wiiflow the way all games organize in different way.

    how do you install the ios?
    I ran the installer through the homebrew channel but every
    time I run it it gives me an error:

    [+] Installing Custom IOS, please wait...
    >> Install ERROR! (ret = -2011)

    I've tried Network and Wad methods and even rev14 and rev17, but it doesn't work
    Does it matter which ios i choose to use during the installation? Am I missing something?

    Wrong thread my friend. I suggest you start with the Error Index and follow the directions under -2011 error for restoring trucha to your IOS36. Follow the softmod guide for your firmware. It'll be listed on that page.

    And finally make sure you've looked through This Post for all the guides you'll probably need for a while. Then once you're set up, head back over here to install Wiiflow.

    I have to admit here also, I spent two months going through everything thing I could fine. I was so sick of it I jumped and successfully softmoded my Wii. If anyone has gone this far, then you are only a newbie. Keep yourself occupied in the scene and this site, you should not have issues. Well....you will have issues much less likely.
