    you can rename it to boot.dol and banner bomb it or put it in a new folder in apps and use hombrew channel
    ps: your *.wad files go in the wad folder

    The wad manager boot.dol goes into SD:/apps/wad_manager/
    the dol must be named boot.dol or it won't work

    when you say installed do you mean a channel?

    thats because they are forwarders not channels

    forwarder load the app off the SD/USB to save you from going thru the HBC

    just place the wiiflow app on the SD then use the forwarder again

    SD:/apps/Wiiflow/boot.dol

    otherwise install the channel not the forwarder

    i already have the wiiflow on the sd card(i think). maybe knowing the contents of my sd card might help.

    ROOT
    folder-apps
    folder-cIOS#&Rev17 Installer
    folder-wad
    folder-wiiflow
    txt-Channels
    txt-Controls
    txt-Features
    txt-installer
    wad file-IOS38-64-v3867.wad
    txt-NForwarder Readme
    dol file-NForwarderWiiflow.dol
    txt-Readme
    txt-Readme (Deutsch)
    txt_Readme(French)


    inside the apps folder i have 3 folders-WAD Manager V1.6,WiiflowR25_222 and WiiflowR25_249

    the root of the SD should have a folder saying

    apps NOT folder-apps

    inside the apps folder make a new folder called

    Wiiflow(or whatever you want it to be)

    inside this folder rename wiiflow's *****.dol to boot.dol

    HBC will see the new app and the forwarder should now see the app as well but most forwarders tell you what path the boot.dol needs to be in

    example, WiiFlow

    SD:/apps/Wiiflow/boot.dol
    USB:/apps/Wiiflow/boot.dol

    i do have this already. inside my app folder i have 2 folders(WiiFlow_222 and WiiFlow_249). both of these folders have a boot.dol file inside.

    If it loads from SD:/apps/Wiiflow/ like pepxl says, you'll need to rename WiiFlow_249 or WiiFlow_222 to just Wiiflow or it won't work

    read the second part

    the forwarder should now see the app as well but most forwarders tell you what path the boot.dol needs to be in

    example, WiiFlow

    SD:/apps/Wiiflow/boot.dol
    USB:/apps/Wiiflow/boot.dol


    rename which version you want to Wiiflow

    so WiiFlow_222 or WiiFlow_24 to just Wiiflow

    EDIT

    bare in mind this is a rule for all forwarders, if you dont have the correct path the forwarder will reboot to the System Menu. Most forwarders come with a readme.txt or information at the source that explain the paths of the forwarder and mostly come with several paths that can be used
