    Hello everyone and Wiiflow oh no?!?!?

    Hello everyone and thanks for the great site.

    I installed/softmodded my sons wii with the Letterbomb exploit thanks to Chris Lowthian Tutorial at How to: Softmod your 4.3 Nintendo Wii. I now have the Homebrew Channel, Ive made a back up with Bootmii and I've installed Priiloader 236 Mod from the and configured the settings I need on Priiloader.

    I am a totall noob to all this have idea abouT cIOS or Wads and don't know if the have the ones needed to do the things I'd like to.

    I really would appreciate help getting Wiiflow on the wii so we can play backed up games from a hard drive or sd card. I spent hours last night going from tutorial to tutorial trying to work out how to get it working and ended up feeling more lost than at the start. I'm not sure what wads or cIOS I need before I install, how to even get or all the Wiiflow files needed to install.

    Im sure it is probably easier than I think but I'd really appreciate a 'Treat me like the Noob/Idiot I am' guide to installing the latest Wiiflow.

    Thanks for reading and I hope you can help.

    No links to outside guides thank you, follow the softmod any wii guide

    and welcome to

    Thank you for becoming a member of the best wii modding site around!

    First off you need to read the
    Site rules and try your best to abide by them.
    Also You need to realise that this site is here to help you make the most out of your Wii and not to help people with piracy!

    Now we know the rules its time to find the right guide for modding your wii, I recommend the

    The Softmod Any Wii Guide by Mauifrog

    This guide works for all wii's

    And Bluphant's noobs guide - Basic introduction to wii hacking

    There are also other guides which you can find in the
    Guides and tutorials section

    Once you have completed the guide you need to ascertain if your wii is capable of playing backups via the disc drive or whether you need to be usb loading.

    Wii's post 2009 generally cannot play backups via the disc drive and have to use usb loading.

    I recommend usb loading anyway as you can add an remove your games easily and there is no wear and tear on your disc drive and no messing about with discs etc.

    What you will need to know -

    What drives are compatible -
    Usb Compatibility list

    How to set your drive up -
    Loading and Playing Wii Backup Games from USB HDD

    Once your HDD is setup and ready to go, you will need a program to manage your games!
    Checkout Peire's
    Wii Game Manager Guide

    Now your set up and ready to go, but you run in to a problem with one of your game backups -
