Hi all Been on the wii scene for absoloutly years. Sold my old wii a year ago and bought a new one recently so sort of got back in to the scene. Used to do hardmods on em back in the day. Now I just go down the softmod route with usb myself and don't do it for others. Now wiiflow randomly crashes for me. Not a huge deal, but it is just a bit annoying at times, the main times is when it happens when my mrs plays it as she just assumes I have broken the wii, lol. To which I say, benefits vs cons beatch! lol Anyway, the crashes never happen in game as I would have assumed, the crashes just randomly happen in wiiflow. Normally after clicking play but has done it completely randomly too. Just crashes to a dsi exception, sometimes will reload on its own, sometimes will freeze and need a power cycle to reboot. My wii is as follows, black wii from around June time, UK PAL model in the UK. 4.3E installed. IOS's are as follows: - 199 - Wanin rev14 222 - Hermes v5.1 base 38 223 - Hermes v5.1 base 57 224 - Hermes v5.1 base 60 236 - Trucha Bugged base 36 249 - Wanin rev21 base 57 (v5918) 250 - Wanin rev21 base 38 (I was thinking old school compatibility) Wiiflow - 2.2 rc1 r304 Hard Drive - Western Digital My Passport 500Gb (I had a diff hard drive at first but it was freezing a lot so bought the WD and touch wood it seemed fine, mate has same drive, his works exactly the same, and he also gets the same random crashes, I hope it aint the hard drive, don't see how it can be really as its messing up in code and it appears unrelated to hard drive) Game compatibility is no problem at all, just the random dsi exceptions annoying us. Now have tried booting all the different editions of wiiflow, however, only the 249 or 250 (wanin's) will boot. None of the installed Hermes cIOS's will launch wiiflow, however I do use 222 to boot Goldeneye which does work fine (going from wiiflow 249). Both 249 (base 57) and 250 (base 38) crash randomly, no real difference it would appear. Can not test it via 199, but I use that rev14 for triiforce. Any ideas guys? I'm thinking its just either buggy cIOS code or buggy Wiiflow code and just to wait for a new one? Is there a more stable version that people recommend? For example I know Wanin's rev21 and anything below after 14 won't run nand emulation properly hence why I'm using 199 (rev14) for my triiforce. And of any more stable older versions, will this cause incompatibility with any other certain games? I know black ops needs an ios with base 57 and goldeneye won't run from waninkoko but other than those? Oh yeah, sorry about the wall of text And last thing I remember that also randomly happens. Sometimes when launching wiiflow it will bring up the background music but the screen will be scrambled/blank. No buttons are functionable and it needs a hard reboot, but it just sits there playing my music. Oh yeah, and very lastly, have priiloader installed (only on mine, my mates who has the same issues does not have priiloader), sometimes when it should launch wiiflow it will boot the system menu, totally random, no certain situations where it always happens, just sometimes you'll press wii menu and actually get there rather than back to wiiflow.
