Question please; By following the ANY guide Wiiflow installs to the SD card by default. How does this affect this guide? I ask because for some reason I am unable to see any of my Wiiware/VC games on my emulated nand on my personal Wii. If there's a conflict with the ANY guides installation of Wiiflow to the SD card and this guides use of the USB drive, it would be super to know for sure.
Additionally, with regards to the ANY guide and this guide, you have provided a link to Red_gh0st's guide in which he is now using dx2 v7b1d IOS wads. Are these newer than the ANY guide? All these mods are in a state of constant flux so it's a little daunting to keep on top 24/7.
I am at a point now where I have followed this guide, twice, and recreated my nand, twice, and have the same result. When I try to access my nand emulation after watching your video I am getting a message that says "Welcome to Wiiflow. I have not found any games. Click install.....snip.... or Select partition to select your partition type."
I see INSTALL GAME SELECT PARTITION and the fish bowl. I've tried clicking the fish bowl with the "A" button as well as the "B" buttons on the wiimote but neither yields the results I am looking for. Can I get some assistance with this please? Thank you.
So, I think the problem is that Wiiflow doesn't recognize the emulated nand on my usb hdd. The next thing is to figure out why exactly! :)
The any wii guide installs d2x rev 7 which is what u want, if u have installed wiiflow to the sd card then delete the wiiflow folder completely from the sd card and follow this guide. I recommend that u operate your wii without the sd card in as a lot of programs will default to the sd card ie Wiiflow which will then render the wiiflow ini provided useless unless u want to mess about and edit the wiiflow ini.
ok now i have another ?......this wii here is for my baby sister,i doubt that she will be downloading anything from the wii channel....does she still need this done on her wii?
Some games like call of duty will need it to play online but that is about it, the wii will function normally with out it.
Hiya again Pob3008. Thank you for the clarification. This is really important information that's not really touched upon in this guide with regards to where Wiiflow installs in the ANY guide vs. where Wiiflow installs in this guide. Furthermore, I had never considered not using my sd card. Hmmmm. How do you think that would affect all that is... the ANY guide with regards to all the programs installed by default?

Another subject is the dx2 rev7. Since those that have used the ANY guide prior to using this guide have installed a fully functional version of dx2 rev7, then maybe you should make mention of this... to those of us who came here after installing the ANY guide and upon seeing "Thing You Will Need: #6" maybe you could add the caveat (applicable to those who have NOT recently softmodded using the ANY guide). For some reason I was under the impression that #6 was a mandate and spent some extra time following the second guide you had linked to on how to install those wad files.... lol. I feel foolish for doing so at this point but as long as nothing is hurt or destroyed, I am ok :)
Copy the contents of the apps folder over from the sd card to your USB device.
also it is only a recommended setup I actually use d2x rev 6, but if u notice in the guide I do refer to the d2x installation guide also.

Alrightee then, copied everything over to my usb hdd and booted my Wii with no sd card. Loaded hbc, pressed "1" and told hbc to use usb hdd instead of sd card. I then launched Wiiflow and get a message "No available usb partitions for data and no SD inserted! Exiting."

Next I figured that copying the contents of my sd card have overwritten what was on my usb drive so I recopied the .dol and .ini files from your guide and overwrote the existing ones in the apps/wiiflow directory.
Next I reloaded Wiiflow again and noticed that my cover view had changed back to the default so I tried to adjust it with the 1 and 2 buttons but that's broken now. I then followed the rest of your guide with regards to the fishbowl. Success! I can now see my emulated nand.
I would really like to have back my previous ability to adjust the cover views though.
Regarding the forwarder channels section it would be awesome if you could add a bit to those who have installed the ANY mod. The ANY mod installs by default a Wiiflow forwarder that points to the sd card. This guide points to the USB device to load the program. As such, anyone who softmodded their Wii with the ANY guide has, by default, the wrong channel forwarder. I believe that the last sd card install for the ANY guide is without the Wiiflow forwarder wad and as such would need to be redownloaded yes? Or, would it be as simple as just deleting the ANY mod Wiiflow channel via the Wii menu?
The forwarder included in the ANY Wii guide is the FIX94v11forwarder. It supports FAT32 , NTFS and EXT2, EXT3 , EXT4 file systems , on both SD and USB. Source HERE.
How odd, after moving all the files from my SD card to my USB hdd the forwarder channel stopped working and gave me a message that there was no SD card inserted. lol. Maybe my ANY softmod is jacked up now. This is getting funnier by the day :)
