    You will need an SD card and working slot to get the Homebrew Channel installed in the first place. They sell Wiis at pawn shops around here for around $30-35 so you might be able to pick up another one.
    As for storage, USB flash drives are hit-or-miss when it comes to working with launchers. Some of them just don't implement the entire USB storage protocol.

    WiiFlow has it's cIOS set up kinda weird. You might try running an app called "WiiFlow Start Configurator". It will let you choose the force cIOS option and which one you want to use. You should be able to get it to run then.

    If your HBC isn't displaying upside down and it says it's using IOS58 you shouldn't need to reinstall it. That would require a working SD slot.

    Did you try the start configurator app? My only other suggestion would be to try a different USB loader to see if it's your hardware or just WiiFlow. USB Loader GX doesn't require any extra configuration steps other than having HBC installed and a usable cIOS installed as IOS249.

    I would try Stephanie's tutorial here.

    If you don't want to play Gamecube games you can skip the DIOS MIOS part. If you do want to play Gamecube games I would recommend trying Nintendont before you install DIOS MIOS. It's more compatible and doesn't require replacing the stock MIOS on the console. :)
