    Ive been trying for a few days to get cfg loader to start in dolphin, but havnt had any luck :/
    It just blackscreens and/or crashes dolphin.

    So I was wondering if anyone has got this to work? WiiFlow starts fine but wont get past the "insert usb device" screen (obviously).

    Things Ive tried so far:
    Using the included dolphin NAND.
    Using the included dolphin NAND + installing all cIOS's needed
    Using my original Wii Backup NAND.
    Using my original Wii Backup NAND + installing all cIOS's needed.
    Using a fresh backup of my modded Wii NAND.
    Using a fresh backup of my modded Wii NAND + reinstalling all cIOS's needed.
    Booting the boot.dol directly
    Booting cfg from the SM
    Booting cfg from HBC
    Changing settings for cfg (forcing it to read from SD instead of USB, forcing it to ask, etc)

    Ive tried several different revisions of Dolphin with no success.

    Also, Im sure youre asking yourselves "wtf, why do you want to do that?", and heres an explanation:
    Im messing around with the theme maker and I dont feel like unplugging my external hdd everytime I make a change.
    Also, Im not 100% comfortable with using my Wii as a guinniepig for my own files :P But the nr1 reason is the constant unplugging of the hdd.

    You can use ftpii to copy the files over the network instead of unplugging the hdd...

    Dolphin uses HLE for IOS so you can install all IOS/cIOS you want that won't help it.

    You could try to hack up the source to just continue anyway.

    Ah, that explains it. I installed all the cIOS's cause I found some old thread over at the dolphin forum who said that it would work.
    I guess Im quite out of luck then.

    Im gonna take a look at ftpii, but I guess I'll still have to launch that app everytime I need to transfer some file? (in other words, exit cfg, boot ftpii, send file, exit ftpii, boot cfg, rinse and repeat)

    Ah well, the Wii is playing SS atm so theres no rush :)
