    So I bought myself a wii U today, and being a good little cracker, installed homebrew first thing.

    I used smashstack and http://gbatemp.net/threads/simple-guide-to-install-cios-on-vwii-backup-nand-and-keys.339890/ as a guide and have USBLoaderGX and Wiiflow on the sd card, as suggested by the guide.

    Wiiflow boots, finds my hdd but when i try to run a game from it, it crashes and I have to power cycle my wii U.

    USBLoaderGX loads, but wont find my hdd.

    Anyone know why this might be happening and how I can get these to work on the vWii?

    As a side note, using the savegame manager gx to transfer the save files from my wii to my wii U (traded in my wii), it finds the save games fine but tells me that "Mii data is installed but datas are missing" and when i hit the install button it kicks me back to homebrew. Anyone know why this would be?

    Regards,

    Kurir

    I am using a Y-Cable to provide enough power for the device, so I cannot just use the other USB port

    You either have to install D2X v10-alt instead of normal v10
    OR
    it has to be the top USB port on the back.

    I don't think there are any other options.

    Yeah I saw the front two first and assumed that it only had 2 like the wii xD Anywho, it fixed the issue with USBLoaderGx, though wiiflow still hangs when trying to play a game.
