    Removing certain channels from WiiFlow (trying to kidproof)

    Is there a way to remove channels from WiiFlow views so my kids won't be able to fiddle with them? I plan on configuring PriiLoader so that it boots directly into WiiFlow (if possible).

    I don't want the following to be shown in WiiFlow:
    NeoGamma Channel
    USBLoaderCFG
    USB Loader GX
    Backup HBC
    HomeBrew Channel

    A bit paranoid about my kids randomly moving around/deleting files, want to see if I can kidproof this part.

    Possible?

    Thanks in advance!

    Use WiiFlow's parental controls.

    First of all......, nothing is impossible. All you need is to read the tutorials or configuration of Priiloader.
    Secondly, Wiiflow as a LOADER, won't show her competitors -- NeoGamma, CFG, GX, HBCs. The last four members only show up on Wii Main menu. Right, look at your Wii?
    So, config your Priiloader to start the Wii directly to WiiFlow, and whenever EXIT, it returns to WiiFlow until your kids power off the Wii. Are these in your dream?
    Besides, you may like to move the gang ( Neo, CFG, GX, HBC, BkupHBC) to the last page of Wii Main menu. Hide them from your kids, if in case they accidentally walk into the room.
    Last but not least, you can delete the backup HBC as another active HBC is installed.
    And, finally, even if Neo, CFG,GX,HBC are all deleted from the Wii, you can always re-installed it from WiiFlow, within a few minutes. How? .....think about it when kids are having fun on WwFlow.

    Already enabled. Doesn't solve my issue.

    Yes, I plan to configure PriiLoader to have Wii auto-boot to Wiiflow (as mentioned in OP).

    I can see that I don't think I explained my issue well. I'll try again - when I enter "inventory view" of WiiFlow, I see all the Wii games I own (normal, expected, etc). There's a button in lower right that takes apparently takes me to "inventory view" of WiiWare/virtual games/channels. It shows games like Tetris Party, Chrono Trigger, etc - the games I purchased through Wii Shopping Channel. Also in this "view", there is Photo Channel, Shopping Channel, Forecast Channel, Mii Channel, etc.. which I don't mind leaving them showing in WiiFlow.

    The issue, I'm referring to, is in that same view described above, NeoGamma Channel, USBLoaderCFG, USB Loader GX, Backup HBC, HomeBrew Channel *also* shows up in the view, which means kids can go into those if they wanted to, and via settings in WiiFlow, I'm unable to delete/remove/hide those.

    However, it sounds as if you're saying I *can* safely remove all those channels via Wii System Menu: NeoGamma Channel, USBLoaderCFG, USB Loader GX, Backup HBC, HomeBrew Channel. Thus they will disappear and not show up on list in WiiFlow. Is that what you're saying? Confirm please - and I can do it that way, but how do I easily get those channels installed again if I need them - ie: if I needed USB Loader GX again?

    Thanks and appreciate your responses!

    Yes, i can confirm all your statements.
    Sorry, there's no need for an edit.

    Your dream has several scenarios ... lol.
    --Just keep HBC, BUT leave no SD card in your Wii. Then, in case your kids run into HBC, they see no apps. Right?
    --Keep your preferred Neo, CFG, GX as apps on SD root. When you need it, activate it from HBC. I guess you know how to get into HBC from PriiLoader. Your kids do not know, Right ?
    --Get an ISO of MMM, or B.L.I.N.D. In USB flash drive. In SD root, Keep the WAD folder which contains the Channel wads of Neo,CFG, GX. Insert the usb flash drive and run BLIND/MMM to install the LOADER CHANNEL (the wad) when you Ned them. It only take 3 minutes. Isn't it?
