    I recently re-hacked my 4.1u system via hackmii 4.4.4.5.

    here are my cios's
    cIOS202[57]-v5
    cIOS223[37-38]-v4
    cIOS222[38]-v5
    cIOS224[57]-v5
    cIOS250[57]-v20
    cIOS249[56]-v20

    my original hack was giving me the screen dump on wiiflow while trying to access wiifit plus, wiimusic and bomberman. I cycled through the alternate cios setting for each game through the menu on wiiflow. I also tried watching the video from chooseing altdol in wiiflow, video never showed up. since that didnt correct any of the problems, I assumed it was probably from me screwing with which bases my cios's were in. So that was the reason for the re-hack.

    doing some reading, Ive realized that wiimisic has an update on it. I have the original disc.. Will backing up the game in wiiflow remove the update (scrub it)? Or will I have to run it through a scrubber? BTW I DO have the 'block disc updates" enabled in priiloader.

    will this cios setup give me the greatest compatibility? is there anything else I can try to get these games past the screen dump?

    Your cIOS249 should run Wii Fit Plus as it does with mine, default settings using a base56. You could try deleting wiiflow.ini from the apps/wiiflow folder and running it again. Update partitions aren't used with USB loaders, as you are using cIOS not standard IOS as the disc channel does.

    EDIT: What version/rev of Wiiflow are you running?

    deleted the ini file and i still get the dump screen, cycling through the cios's again to see if an alternate one works now.

    Does wiiflow remove the update from the disc 'wiimusic'?

    Woohoo! I got it working. I deleted the game off my usb and backed it up again from original.

    Also, is there a line in the wiiflow ini that tells wiiflow to look for covers off of usb vs sd? since I re-installed it, it wants to re-download all my covers and put on the sd.

    It doesnt' use them. Updates in the disc channel are for updating IOS's but when loading/running a game the cIOS loads it. Head over to googlecode and grab the latest wiiflow, I think its rev304 and try r304-249.zip. Just replace the boot.dol in you apps/wiiflow and try again. Don't forget to delete the wiiflow ini file. Whereabouts are you keeping your data (wiiflow) folder, USB or SD?

    OK.. will download the latest. I assumed hackmii would grab the latest and greatest.

    My wiiflow directory in on sd, if I move it to usb will everythig switch over?

    Thanks for your help.

    You need to change the line in wiiflow.ini to read "data_on_usb=yes" and any directory paths that read SD/wiiflow/music etc to USB/wiiflow/music. Open the ini file in wordpad and you should see what needs changing
