    Here's what I did:
    These instructions pertain to forwarding directly to Wiiflow through a Priiloader installed file after editing the .ini file. Without the user specifying, it was my assumption he was discussing channel forwarders. Regardless though, your method will also look for files off an SD card assuming the .ini is not edited. But to the user's question a forwarder alone, and still to my knowledge, has not been coded and publicly released to specifically ignore any files off an SD card.

    Not to take away from your instructions, as they're good ones that people should follow if they want to use that method of loading.

    What does Wii Backup Manager have to do with bypassing an SD card for use with forwarding into Wiiflow off a USB hard drive? I'd say nothing, but I'm interested to hear your thoughts.

    Shud I be using CIOS249 base 38 or 57 (or other) and what is the real difference?
    Shud I be using 2 FAT32 partitions or doesnt it matter?
    I had nothing but problems with a WBFS formatted drive once the USB Loader GX guys took over Wiiflow. They've kept up official support for the filesystem in Wiiflow, but they don't recommend using it. They suggest a full FAT32 drive and so do I. Runs great.

    249 vs. 222. I've stopped using 249 almost entirely. It's typically buggy when a new version gets released and has a tendency to black screen on more occasion than I'd like. That said, I respect the work that kid has done and he pioneered a lot of what we take for granted today in loading these backups.

    v20 vs v19 I didn't see a noticeable difference when loading most games. I mostly went with v20 so I didn't have to listen to that guitar going nuts on the installer.

    base 38 is compatible with wad manager. Any other base is not when installing wads. Some people notice marked improvement when loading games with a base 57 or 56 (I'm not really among them anymore) and certain games, like that infernal black ops, requires loading off an IOS with 57 as base.

    I go full FAT32 and love it. It took me a long time to change over from WBFS; mostly because I'm lazy, partly because I don't have the space to backup my files, and partly because I'm stubborn as all get out. But for me it was the better choice.

    Since you've on vaca for a while you'll probably never see this, but in case you do, I wasn't aware NTFS support had come along that far yet. Thanks.

    Yes, I also confirmed this 'cause the USB HDD I'm using now is in NTFS partition.
    BUT, unfortunately Homebrew Channel can't read (yet) any applications I put in [apps] folder.

    Hmmm, yes, ever since I used 57 as a base for IOS 249, I haven't been installing wads very well lately. I've been getting lots of errors, WHILE installing, and after installing the wads. i get a blue screen.

    So I should switch to base 38? I can do that by using the cIOS installer correct?

    As you will see from my earlier post, I have had USB disk read issues. I've switched back from CIOS249 v20 Base 57 to CIOS249 v19 Base 38. It's too early to say if its stabilised but whenever issues have surfaced I've gone back to this release. Whether or not CIOS249 v20 base 38 works I cannot say. I've not been able to determine yet whether its the CIOS249 changes or the applying of the latest WiiFlow 2.2 RC1 updates that is destabilising things.

    If you work it out let me know please.

    Wad Manager is only compatible with IOS of base 38. A 249 with any other base will give errors when attempting to install WADs.

    Let's keep further discussion about installing WADs to the appropriate thread. Thank you.

    Concerning Wiiflow (and usb loaders in general) bases 38, 56, and 57 are currently the most popular. Unless a game needs a particular base (see problematic games thread by krank for a list), pick one of the three and enjoy. Though I suggest dumping 249 altogether and using Hermes 222-224 using Stomp_442's guide along with his recommendations.

    CIOS222 advice

    Thanks for the prompt reply Ithian.
    I am eager to take your advise if it sorts things but could you please give me a brief explaination as to why Hermes is recommended. There are so many contradictary opinions. I have softmodded 3 Wii's but I am very much an amateur and may simply be missing the obvious. In all cases I have done the following which I accept may not be the recommended approach:

    1) Got HBC installed
    2) Installed CIOS249 rev17 (for stability)
    3) Used PimpMyWii 2.0 to get the latest updates (opinions are split on this tool)
    4) Formatted a USB drive as 2 FAT32 partitions (Wii system & Wii backed up Games respectively)
    5) Transferred files from SD card to Wii system FAT32
    6) Installed WiiFlow (249 release) to load from USB drive

    From there on its been the tweaking the releases of WiiFlow and CIOS249(v19/v20, base 38/57). Nearly all games play fine whenever the "Disk_Setusb failed" message isnt appearing (which I think is cios249 v20 compatibility)

    I will gladly take all your insults and swear words if it means I can get to the bottom of this annoyance!!!. LOL.

    Many thanks for your patience in this matter.

    No insults or swear words here, this is all just my opinion based on the things I've experienced in using Wiiflow. It's not like using 249 won't work. But you'll get more random black screens and code dumps than with Hermes. Some people may not notice -- I didn't pay much attention for a long time -- but it will happen.

    GimpMyWii is unilaterally disapproved of by the staff here. We've seen it screw up too many Wiis. I've run through the program myself and it just looks terrible. The English is poorly translated (French origin I believe), instructions are poor, and they're inaccurate. The only thing I like about it is that it's got an image of paper mario on it. They do get credit for good taste in game characters, but that's it.

    Your FAT drive doesn't need to be in 2 separate partitions for HBC apps to load, but that's perfectly fine.

    FWIW, this is how I have things set up and Wiiflow has never been better:

    -222 v4 base 38
    -223 v4 base 38+37
    -224 v5.1 base 57
    -Wiiflow r304 v222

    Thanks again Ithian.

    I guess its time to start looking at each and every IOS/CIOS to confirm what I have. I think I 'll give 222 a try after your advice. Based on the number of downloads, WiiFlow 249 is always the most popular for some reason with 222 coming a high second. Thats the main reason I've stuck with it for so long, thinking most popular must be best. I take on board what you said about PimpMyWii. I started off doing manual, individual CIOS installations but PimpMyWii appeared to be a excellent quick fix to all the latest updates. I hadnt seen any major adverse reaction to it so I latched onto it quiet early when it was released.

    I guess when it comes to these things, its a case of less haste, more speed !.

    Thanks again for your advice.

    Sherlock99.

    Can wiiflow load ios 224?

    I can't get it to even show up, CFG USB loader shows it and loads it up just fine

    If 224 is not showing up it probably isn't installed properly (which wouldn't be the case as you mention it loads in CFG) or you are using an older version of Wiiflow that doesn't support it.

    If you are using the latest Wiiflow clear your cache folder and delete wiiflow.ini, then reinitialize the app. If that doesn't work, delete and reinstall the entire application fresh, backup your sd:\wiiflow folder, and let the app start up brand new and create all necessary folders. Then redrag in things like you covers, etc.
