Pleas check, where am I going wrong?
I have recently softModed v4.3U and have followed steps 1 - 3 (softmod AnyWii tutorial).
By completing all the above steps, I have the following feature
1. Cfg USB loader
2. Backup DVD (not of any use, I am okay)
The Cfg USB loader is working well, 1 USB Flash drive connected (loaded with a wbfs game), SD card contains files mentioned in step 3 from the main tutorial.
My question is, what version of Cfg USB is pre-packaged in step-3 of main tutorial, can I update to v62. I did try downloading the file v62 and overwritten them on SD card, and launched Cfg USB loader - able to see the new look, but the game did not work, gave an error (stating some files are missing etc), puzzled!

what the heck am i doing wrong here?
I bought a 1tb hdd. I followed the guide and installed all the proper things to get Wiiflow running. Every time I run wiiflow it goes to the loading screen, flashes some white text on the top right corner and reboots the wii. I tried using the 222 and the 249 version. same thing. I even tried updating my IOS249 and 250 to the right versions. nothing works. What am I doing wrong???

Try CFG and if it works the problem is with Wiiflow. If it doesn't maybe you formatted it/extracted the files wrong. Try from an SD card if you are using your USB HDD to load wiiflow. Try launching from HBC rather then forwarder channel.

v60 is included in the packs. Yes you can update. What files does it say you are missing?

2 Hours is too long. Maybe a problem with the disc or your drive? Try to rip a few with Wiiflow and see if you get the same result. Just extract the wiiflow 222 pack to your SD or FAT32 partition and load it from HBC.

i tried both wiiflow and cfg. they both are doing the same thing. it reads the drive for a second then reboot the wii.
I dont know what the problem is. I think ill just start all over from scratch and reinstall HBC and priloader.
Thing is it WAS working last night. Ever since I updated and changed the directory's on the HDD its been giving me nothing but issues.
I dont think its your wiiflow packs or like that.. I believe its my Wii.

I don't think you need to reinstall priiloader....you can reinstall HBC if you want but I doubt that is the issue. Did you delete everything CFg and Wiiflow related off your SD and USB and try again?
Are you loading from SD or USB? Do they launch from HBC?

Really? alright then I guess Ill just reinstall HBC. If you dont think it is Ill try anything else first. Im launching a Forward channel. My hdd is split into 2 fat32 partitions. The bigger for games the smaller for the apps. Im trying to launch it off the USB. I tried many times to del everything and try again. Same result every time. I even got rid of the channels many times and start again. same result. Channel goes to load screen, HDD light flashes 4 times, Wii reboots.
I reinstalled HBC and all that stuff. Then I tried Wiiflow again and found out that I can run it off the SD card and not the HDD. Which is strange. I installed a forward channel but it still needs the boot.dol on the SD card for it to run. I followed what was said on WiiFloWiki.
Is this common? Or is there something wrong. Why cant I run it off my HDD instead on the SD card?
Got it to work. I moved the apps folder to the other partion where my games are and left the wiiflow folder on the 2nd partition and its seems to work.
oh happy days. Now to copy all my games.. argh..

trying to understand about fat32 loading. Am I supposed to just format the entire drive as fat32, or am I able to leave part of the drive for NTFS for other storage? Also for apps & homebrew, can they be on the same fat32 as the game files?
I ask cause I followed guide using a 1.5tb seagate free agent desk drive & I could see games but not load them & the cios are correct & wiiflow would not see them either.
thanks in advance, love this site, best place for Wii info! Keep up the great work folks!

Yes you can have both FAT32 and NTFS. Yes Apps for HBC can be on the same partition...you can use the FAT32 partition for anything you like.

Just soft mod my wi and confused
I finally figured out the soft mod thanks to this wikihacks. I have CFG everything works fine. I used to USB Loader and I put all 20 games with no problem with my old hard drive. Well now I have an 320GB Seagate Go and I thought I did everything right but my fat32 drive is full it will not let me make it any bigger my other partition is 199 gb NTFS so I made two more fat32 partitions what am I doing wrong any suggestions

Not sure if I understand? Your drive is 320 GB and you have 199GBs of space? Why would you make 2 FAT32 paritions?
