I GIVE UP! CIOS222/249 install for WiifFlow
I have finally given up after days of searching and trying!
I have got my Wii to version 4.1e. I used my 2GB SD card to install Homebrew channel and also installed BootMii. So far, no problems with Homebrew but Im yet to get the Bootmii to get passed it original grey screen icon start page (Wii freezes then!)
Anyway, all that I am trying to do now is install Wiiflow. I have tried so many different versions of CIOS installers but yet still none of them appear to work. I literally try to load IOS249 and that crashes the Wii?? ONCE only, have I managed to get through the Hermes CIOS Loader install to point 10 where it asks you to start the CIOS222 installer for the second time (After downloading and installing the 249).
I have even tried formatting the SD card with SDFormatter V2.0.
I cant understand why the Wii just freezes when ever I am trying to do something so important. I have been trying most recently to use mauifrogs guide to softmodding any Wii. But I cant even get to do the NAND backup from Bootmii because as I said above, bootmii freezes on the first screen??
Any help at all would be appreciated, thanks!
make sure you are connected to wireless
install ios36 with patches.
run cios installer and use ios36 for installation
bootmii sounds like it doesnt like your sd card.
Wow that was a quick reply!! I will give those ideas a go thanks very much.
Oh....I dont want to but, I have to admit to a very very stupid mistake Ive been making!!!! I didnt realise the Bootmii ran from the buttons on the console!!! I was trying with the controller :s I-D-I-O-T!!! I blame on my mind being completely fried the last 2 days with this!!!!!!! Arrrgh!
you may like to have a better manipulation with BootMii and MMM with GC controller, in your recovery process

No reason to have a meltdown, lol
So in the instructions I have been going through step by step, all is really good up until the part after installing Priiloader which says -
If you want to autoboot USBLOADER, install USBLoaderCFG_Forwarder.dol
If you want to autoboot HomeBrew Channel, install HBC-Forwarder.dol
NEVER UPDATE YOUR WII FROM NINTENDO- read the forum and do it yourself
Optional priiloader settings-
You can set you wii to boot the system menu, HomeBrew Channel, Priiloader, USBloader, and any other app you wish. Settings are found in priiloader, settings. Set the autoboot and return to what you like best.
Example: Set the autoboot and return to installed file, now your wii will autoboot to your USBloader or HBC- Excellent option for those with kids."
Where is the select/load option? And I would like my Wii to boot up straight to the games list page, is this possible?? (The Wiiflow games list page?)
Thanks again guys!!
