    So, I honestly don't know much about soft modding and everything, my roommate had a Wii and bragged to me how he could play games for free. After about a year he was tired of it, so he sold it to me, with homebrew, usb loader gx, and wiiflow, downloaded onto it already. So basically, all I had to do was just download games, run them through wii backup memory, and transfer them onto the HDD that he sold me too. Everything had been working beautifully, until now.

    I downloaded WiiFlow 4.2.1. I don't remember what version I had before, I just know mine was outdated because I was looking into how to play gamecube iso's with wiiflow and noticed that everyone's was different than mine. Found out about the update, downloaded it, and just simply replaced it with my old wiiflow.

    Ran into a few problems, at first wiiflow would load, but no words would appear, just the bubbles. After I got that fixed, I wanted to get a different forwarding channel, as I guess they were called, but the website told me I needed to be using iso 58. So I tried to switch to iso 58, but my Wii Mod v. 3.2 told me that it couldn't find the files (Again, since I never actually did anything to mod the wii in the first place I don't know anything about any of this shit, so pretty much I might of screwed something up without knowing it). However, now the Wii Mod program is telling me I am using iso 58. Don't know if I was already using it or not, either way.

    So now, with the new forwarding channel, I got WiiFlow to work properly again. However, whenever I load up a game, it just goes to a black screen.

    Did I do something wrong? I heard that a lot of people tend to have this problem when updating Wiiflow, but by simply changing the iso channel they were able to fix it. I have no idea how to do that. I also have WAD Manager v 1.7, but it seems to be a lot more confusing to me.
