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!
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 asYou have to do certain things with the items in the package to get it to work don't you.Quote:
'Download this package - place it on your sd card - place the sd card in your wii - done'
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.
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. :D
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?
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.
