    Question WiiFlow 2.2 Forwarder Channels

    Hello, I downloaded the new Wiiflow 2.2 on my computer and when i extracted the files, i recieve all these forwarder channel wads like Starnight, Carbonik, Spayrosm, and Static. What are they for and Which Channel(s) do i need? and by the way, What really is a Forwarder Channel?

    Thanks!

    You can install wich channel you want or you like.
    If you install a forwarder channel you don't need wiiflow from "apps" folder to keep on sd card it will install as a channel
    4.2 E , BootMii (boot2 as IOS) , DVDx . HBC 1.0.8 , cIOS 38 r14 , Hermes cIOS 222 v4 , Priiloader 0.3 , WiiFlow 2.1a2 , Mplayer CE 0.75 , WiiMc 1.1.0



    Guide Wiiflow installation and settings The Best Loader in my opinion

    That is partially correct, cracra, though your terminology is slightly off. There is a distinct difference between a 'forwarder channel' and a 'channel.'

    The forwarder channel sends a search for a specified location on either an SD card or an external FAT formatted USB device (depending on how the channel was programmed by its creator). When it finds a boot.dol in one of the specified locations it will then launch that application. For a forwarder channel only the banner information is stored on the Wii NAND -- not the application itself.

    A full channel does contain all or most of the application data stored on the Wii NAND. This was popular in the old days when USB Loader GX was popular and thriving. It was also common for older revisions of Wiiflow. Now, almost all channels available are forwarders, unless someone has specifically created and uploaded a full channel -- as has been done in the Wiiflow guide for example.

    @Nabeel10 - You can choose any of those channels to launch Wiiflow. Just make sure your folders are labelled appropriately so the application will launch. The only difference between those forwarder channels is how they look. I prefer Carbonik, myself.

    You can find more detailed instructions in the Wiiflow guide (Other FAQS/Guides section in the Tutorials area).

    The way I equate it: forwarder = pseudo-channel (has what appears to be a channel on the Wii menu, but as Ithian says all the real, relevant data to a given application resides on the SD card).

    Exactly. A forwarder channel looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and sounds like a duck, but it's actually a moose.
