    You can always manually download the covers on your pc and place them on your sd or hdd, wherever you store them on the Wii. I know this doesn't solve the issue you are having, but you will have the game covers for the kids until you can figure out what is causing the stack dump.

    I see no mention of Hermes cIOS v5 being used with any version of WiiFlow, just wondering if WiiFlow has added compatibility yet?

    fir wiiflow to work, is it possible to use separate usb devices, one flash drive and the other a usb hdd? (looking from the back view of the wii)cause right now what i have connected in the usb ports are a FAT formatted usb flash drive on the right and a GH/RB1/2 mic on the left. i also have a wbfs formatted hdd, but currently isnt connected. so i was thinking, if it'd work loading from the flash drive first and when it does, remove it and then plug in the wbfs formatted hdd. i forgot to mention, i have a 1GB sd card specially filled of wiiwares and bootmii.

    It's planned for future revisions but set on lower priority. Right now their latest is r36, requires Hermes rev4 for FAT/NTFS support, and still has lots of bugs. Banner sounds aren't working, NTFS doesn't work at all, covers aren't loading under FAT, menus are laggy/unresponsive, etc.

    Narolez left the scene some months ago, so the project is in a different series of hands yet again. I hope they'll come out with a solid revision sometime soon but for now I'm sticking with supporting r25 for the guide.

    So if I'm understanding you right, you want to boot Wiiflow initially using a flash stick then select a game to play and remove the flash stick to plug in your WBFS drive? Honestly I couldn't say because I've never tried it. If it gives you the 30 second countdown to "find your slow usb device" then theoretically you could use that time to plug in the WBFS drive. Try it and let us know how it works out.

    Using the 2nd port to use both drives at once won't work as its currently incompatible with usb drives.

    Honestly my suggestion is to take out a Wiiware game and use your SD card to load Wiiflow. Or backup, format, and partition your WBFS drive to WBFS/FAT. Either would eliminate your need for a flash stick to boot.

    Hi, everyone, I am a real fan of wiiflow btw.

    Do people update Wiiflow regularly? and from where? I got it from WiiFlow USB Loader - By Hibernatus, it does not state any versions there.
    Why I am asking? as there is v.1.1 R41 out and I am unsure what is the safest source.

    Do people just install over the top?

    This should have an autoupdate, that would be handy.

    The Hibernatus site is no longer being updated and is also out of date. The version supplied there is v1.1.

    The newer revisions beyond r25 which are being released are all considered test revisions by the designers. You can install them by placing the dol file in the \apps\wiiflow\ folder and renaming to boot.dol.

    But keep in mind that every revision has had a bug in some form or another, and again, they are all considered test revisions. In addition your themes, if you use any, need to be updated if updating the app past somewhere between r26-r29.

    Like I've mentioned in previous posts, I am following their release regularly but won't be updating the guide to support these newer revisions until they stabilize a bit more.

    Where do you download the safest updates from if I may ask?
    If I have a WAD forwarder for wiiflow, I just install it? or just copying across is safer?
    With the themes, just copying them back won't work? asy I have 1.1 and go straight to R41? How are they updated then?

    Sorry for these questions

    If I am understanding him right anything past rev 25 will have to run from sd. Rev 25 will have a wad included to install as a channel. Updating past 25 will also require updating your themes using the method described above. If you found a wad for any newer revision, I would be a little leary about installing it until Ithian verifies it working. I would suggest just going with 25 until you see any of the newer revisions supported in this guide. I have had no issues other than a couple games that will not boot from usb period, since installing this.

    Exactly what thatfloorguy said. My advice is stick with r25 for now, as it is still currently the most wholly stable release of Wiiflow. If you want to try the newer revs though, they can be downloaded from the Google Source page, which is linked at the bottom of the original post.

    anything past rev 25 will have to run from sd.
    USB loading support for the app is still there, most of the bugs pertain to FAT/NTFS loading and banner sounds/covers etc. Don't get me wrong, the newer releases are getting closer and closer, and the way things are shaping up, it looks like we're going to have a solid new version of Wiiflow pretty soon. But for now I want to keep this guide where it is, reliable and accurate.
