Hacking Games stop working using WiiFlow without changing anything

Hi, I was pretty happy with wiiflow on the wii u

But now I'm having a problem with WiiFlow on vWii,
Trying to play games that used to work, now it simply goes black and i need to turn the power off in order to turn off the console pressing the on/off button for a long time doesn't do anything.

I'm loading my games from a 32gb SD card, only have 4 games actually. And Im using the latest version of WiiFlow 5.4.6 (according to the metafile)

The games are NTSC versions and the console is PAL, but I have played them in the past and did not change any configuration.

In dispair I changed the cIOS to 251 (base 58, instead of 250 base 57) and it worked.
I dont get it... I tested it on 250 before

The games are:
Grand Slam Tennis
Ghost Squad
Boom Blox: Bash Party (not working, but this one i only saw it working on a wii mini)

I Now suspect the culprint might be the dx2 cios installer, since this probably happened after reinstalling the CIOS

I've reinstalled it once again, and my setup is:
249 -> V10 beta 52 Base 56
250 -> V10 beta 52 Base 57
251 -> V10 beta 52 Base 58
252 -> V10 beta 53 Base 56
253 -> V10 beta 53 Base 57
255 -> V10 beta 53 Base 58

*Edit 2*
Something is odd, Ghost Squad stopped working again, this time I've set the video mode to NTSC and it started working again.
For some reason out of nowhere configurations stop working, then I change one and it starts working again... lets see how long it will last...

*Edit 3*
Ghost Squad doesn't work anymore...

As a way to try to give my full details here is my system check:

Anyone that can bring some light to this issue, how come the games work and then stop working?
