    you don't have to remove anything. just put Wiiflow in the Apps Folder and run it. or you can find the channel and install the wad. if you do that put the wad in the wad folder.

    Personally i would go with installing a channel that way you don't have to go through homebrew channel. other than that they are pretty much the same.

    Yeah install it like you did Neogamma.

    Find the download of WiiFlow.WAD

    go to Homebrew channel then open up wad manager

    hit A until you get to pick a wad.

    then pick the wiiflow.wad file that should install a channel for you.

    do you need to remove anything from the sd card under first
    i mean when i put it back in it wont automatically load the boot,elf file
    also after i have installed it can i then remove the sd card as i think its to risky with young kids having access

    I see you don't have a "bootmii" folder. Run the installer once again and install BootMii as boot2 if you can. Otherwise install it as IOS.

    It is highly recommended to make a NAND Backup with bootmii as it can save you from 99% of bricks. That is, if you can install bootmii as boot2. You'll need a SD Card with atleast 550 MB free on it. Also note bootmii can be picky about SD Cards so its best to avoid generic ones. The 2gb Sandisk MicroSD with an Adapter is recommended.


    a) Place the SD Card into your wii and power it on. If bootmii was installed as boot2, the bootmii screen should automatically appear, if it was installed as an IOS, then you'll have to go to homebrew channel, press 'home' on your wiimote then select 'Load Bootmii'


    b) Navigate using the power/reset/eject buttons on the front of your console and select the icon with the gears on it. If the console buttons don't work, you'll have to use a gamecube controller.


    c) Now select the icon that has an arrow pointing to a SD Card but from the chip. Then follow the on-screen instructions to backup your NAND.


    d) In 10 - 15 minutes, the NAND Backup should be complete. You may have gotten a few bad blocks but any number of bad blocks under 80 is normal and fine. Once all is done, you can exit bootmii.


    e) Remove the SD Card from your wii and insert into your PC, backup the 'bootmii' folder and the 'NAND.bin' file from your sd card onto a safe place on your PC. Once these files/folders are on your PC, delete them from your SD Card. If you do not and bootmii as boot2 is installed, it will load everytime!


    If you were to ever brick, just copy the bootmii folder and 'NAND.bin' from your PC onto the root of your SD Card. Then repeat parts a, b & c but this time selecting the icon that points to the chip. While bootmii/boot2 can save you from full bricks, bootmii/IOS cannot! It is not recommended to use bootmii as an IOS to restore your NAND!

    Remove boot.elf and the "private" folder.
    If you already installed all the WADS you can remove those to free up space.
