    Hello

    I have been reading the news in the forum and with the information from it I could successfully intall the HBC on my vWii.

    Now after this point there are a great amout of information scattered around about different apps to install.

    I have got to the point where I have Wiiflow and the USB Loader GX on the HBC. The problem is that all guides stop from here, and for someone new to the homebrew scene on the wii, this is where it gets really confusing.
    So my main questions are:

    - I run Wiiflow with a usb flash pen connected ( on the back of the wiiu 1st port usb) where I have some backups and wiiware files to try. The app doesnt detect any games. How to fix this?
    - Same thing with USB Loader GX. A lot of information onscreen but not detecting the content of my pen drive ( which is fat32)

    So all in all I would really appreciate if someone could direct me to a guide for setting up the usb HDD or flash drive to load backups.

    Do you have cios installed? And is the USB in the upper back slot (if wii u is laying down)
    Also are your games in a folder on the SD card called wbfs.

    http://gbatemp.net/threads/full-vwii-softmod.339899/ -> got some isues that seem the same to mine :)Just check this thread, on page 3 are some great tips (try installing beta52 instead of beta53-alt, check if your games are in the right directory:
    , check if you have selected usb1 as a partition in the settings menu instead of sd etc etc). Also, if you load some games on your sd card, do they got recognized by wiiflow?[/code][/QUOTE]

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I got it working now on wiiflow. The problem was that the games didnt work running from the usb flash pen. Now I am using a USB HDD drive.

    However wiiflow does not detect when I put the isos and wbfs into each folder with code. To get wiiflow to recognize my games I have to put the games inside the wbfs folder alone or else it wont find them.

    Wiiflow is still a little buggy, sometimes the games doesnt load right, but there is like a signal that indicates a game is going to hang up the system. This is when I select the game cover and the game introduction doesnt play before I hit start the game. When this happens the game makes the system hangup while loading and I need to repower the wii to get it restarted. Not a great problem since its easy to get around this.
