    I was trying to load WiiFlow. Placed the bin in the app, the WiiFlow folder with themes etc on my SD card. Started HBC and selected WiiFlow. It started loading but stopped within a few seconds.

    What do I do now? Can I just unplugged and restart or just reset or what other options? I prefer to ask before I do something stoopid and brick the thing [​IMG]

    Well you have a few options, WiiFlow froze:
    a.) Hold the power button for 4+ seconds, to power off Wii.
    b.) Unplug wii.
    c.) Sit and stare at screen.
    EDIT: Please say more if your difficulty was in the App and I misunderstood.

    No you got it right. I unplugged and it worked.....
    However, I can't seem to install the dang thing

    Here is what I did.
    Installed PimpMyWii 2.11 (I believe)
    in there it said to install WiiFlow to select Wad and install WiiFlow Forwarder....I didn't find it
    so I thought maybe I have to put part 2 on the card....WiiFlow was in part 2 but no Wad...

    Via HBC I went to WiiFlow USB Loader but it keep freezing....So I think I am missing the Wad to install the dang thing.

    Can't find a good how to with all the files anywhere.

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes you can, its called modmii and its available on this site. Just search ModMii.
    Get rid of pimpmywii, should be renamed brickmywii if I understand right. I used to use it, when it first came out it was very good. But now, it sucks

    I'm not sure I understand this ModMii correctly. What does it do? Does it simply update the files on the Wii that may be out of date or does it actually hack the wii?

    No where in there does it say to run a exploit like a game and such. Am i right in my thinking or am I out to lunch?

    I have a friend who's bringing his wii this coming weekend. If this does the hack, I'll use this instead of the exploit.

    Can I also upgrade my wii from 4.1U to 4.3U with this?

    You still use an exploit. Modmii simply prepares the files on your pc for you, you then copy them to usb/sd and follow the guide that modmii writes for you

    Tx Donkey Plonk. That makes sense.

    Second question, can I upgrade to 4.3U from 4.1U with this software? Will it create the files required to perform the upgrade? Or should I stay with 4.1U

    it says when I run it that 4.1U is recommended....Hence my question.

    Yeah stay on 4.1.
    4.3 Requires a game for the exploit. 4.1 you can still use bannerbomb.
    4.3 doesn't give you any additional functionality
