    Hi all,

    Yesterday I installed WiiFlow 1.1 and setup the channel and all is working fine (with the exception of some covers but I will sort that!).

    I have since found out that the newest version is 2.1 - is it easy to upgrade?

    Do I just need to replace the wii flow folder for the newer one and remove the channel and put a new one on? Can I leave the old channel etc...?

    Any help appreciated!

    Paul

    Sorry guys - been searching and searching and think I found this.

    Hope this will work!

    I've been using 2.0 since it came out and am about to upgrade to 2.1... can I just copy it in and overwrite everything or should I delete eeeeeeeeverything and start fresh... or just copy in the dol? Thanks for keeping up the awesome work!


    copy dol and delete your wiiflow.ini file.
    Remember this file is under SD:\apps\wiiflow\ or USB:\apps\wiiflow\

    Though I don't think this is 100% needed....I suggest deleting everything and just placing the latest .dol in your wiiflow apps file...all the other folders will get created when u first run wiiflow....if u want to u could backup your covers and place them in the folders that get created...

    Also, if the channel is a forwarder channel than you don't have to delete it, if it isn't, than you will have to install a new one for 2.1.

    To find out which the channel is, try loading it without the SD in the wii. If it loads than it's a regular channel, if it doesn't it's a forwarder

    If it wasn't a forwarder, and you liked the channel you had, but can't find a 2.1 version of it, than pm me and I can update the old one for you.

    Thanks for the suggestions both - much appreciated.

    BTW - It's a full channel because the SD card isn't in anymore.

    I will remove old one and find a 2.1 channel to install when I have 5 mins. Can't get my boy off the console long enough though!

    Hi all,

    Just to let you know I renamed the wiiflow folder on the drive and put a fresh one on. I then installed a forwarder. Although it's slower with the forwarder instead of the channel I will not have to worry about updates (at least that's what I read earlier!)

    Thanks for your help!

    Paul
