How to install or Update to Wiiflow 4.2.1 Download!



Updated January 2014:
Wiiflow 4.2.1 Download
As always, extract the .zip file to your SD card Root and open it with homebrew channel, if you already have another wiiflow in your SDD card, go to Apps, then rename the old wiiflow folder to wiiflow "version number"  and then extract/copy over the new wiiflow folder to Apps or just extract the whole Zip file to your SD card Root. Questions? leave a comment below!

Whats New?

-Sourceflow, now you can view all sources in a coverflow too
-Completely reworked default theme by mamule, thanks to him alot for all the
work
-added experimental autoboot function for source menu buttons, just add
"autoboot=ID" for channel, wii and gc game buttons or "autoboot=TITLE" for
plugin and homebrew buttons. Replace ID/TITLE with the game ID/Title you want to
boot when clicking on the button of course.
-added "allow_b_on_questionmark" to the wiiflow.ini so you can disable the
random game bootup when pressing b on the question mark icon
-added new source menu config menu access it via startup settings menu
-wiiflow will now slightly fadeout to black after one minute of no activity
-added Nintendont GC Loader support
-added custom titles support for plugin roms
-added 4 nand presets to the nand setting page 2
-added the vwii widescreen fix by tueidj
-added quite alot of new options to wiiflow to set various things
-fixed ALOT of bugs which prevented games from booting, letting wiiflow crash
etc

November 2013:
Now we do move up to 4.2 because of all the big additions to wiiflow!
The main new features are
-a FTP Server
-a File Explorer
-a Language Downloader
-a Path Selector for both wiiflow paths and Emulated NAND paths
-a custom banner downloader
-a WAD Installer for Emu NAND Channels
-an automated MIOS installer for different GC games
-a new Source Menu feature to select multiple coverflows to display at the same time
I hope that includes most of the important changes.
You can find the FTP Server and File Explorer in the Home Menu of WiiFlow
The WAD Installer is used via the File Explorer, you can also uninstall Channels now from
your Emu NAND using the same way as for every other game.
The Language Downloader is located in the general settings as well as the Path Selectors
The custom banner downloader are in the per-game settings, mainly downloading GC banners
To use the automated MIOS installation just use the new "mios" folder in your wiiflow main folder,
copy in dm.wad for diosmios, dml.wad for diosmios lite, qfusb.wad for quadforce usb,
qfsd.wad for quadforce sd and mios.wad for the regular mios, the wads you need to copy in depend
on your personal usage
To use the new Source Menu features just go into the startup settings and enable Multisource,
you can use the + button to select more than one source then.
WiiFlow now also has full compatibility to UStealth, a tool to hide your HDD from the WiiU question
 if you want to format it, check out gbatemp.net/threads/352786 for more details about that tool.
now this is just the list of big things, yet again they are a lot of smaller additions and as always bugfixes,
cleanups and speedups.
To find out more about the new release you can join the irc channel #wiiflow on irc.abjects.net or
just go to the gbatemp.net wiiflow thread and just ask what you want to ask.
Thanks to everyone still supporting the project, especially to fledge68,
Ayatus, mamule and all the beta testers and contributors behind the scenes!
Have Fun!

OLDER Versions and How To (below)

WiiFlow v4.1.3.zip 2.1 MB for Wii and WiiU vWii

Description: hey guys, time to update to 4.1.3! not much changed this time but you know stability updates are important, thats the log: -added my ntsc-j patch for gc games, meaning you should be able to play japanese gc games on non-japanese properly now -updated the wii game video patching, now if you set video patching to normal or higher, it will also apply the sneek video patch, this will give you a much higher compatility in patching video modes -added fwrite patch, just set debugger to OSReport -fixed up some neek rev checks -replaced the "Disabled" hooktype by "AUTO", meaning it will automatically set the hooktype VBI for you if you want to use cheats but forgot to select a hooktype -added debugger pause back, it will be automatically enabled if you just use debugger but no cheats -added full plugin dol path support, meaning if you use for example dolFile=usb1:/apps/snes9xgx/boot.dol as dol file path, wiiflow will also load it from there, if you just specify for example dolFile=snes9xgx.dol, wiiflow will add the plugin path to it to build like usb1:/wiiflow/plugins/snes9xgx.dol for loading -added plugin dol path auto partition searching, meaning if you do dolFile=apps/snes9xgx/boot.dol, wiiflow will check through sd:/apps/snes9xgx/boot.dol, then usb1:/apps/snes9xgx/boot.dol, etc. -updated wiiflows libraries, this should give more stability especially for cover loading -added quadforce 4+ support -added a new plugin argument, {name_no_ext}, it will get replaced by the filename, just without its extension -now required and selected categories are cleared whenever you change source(s)



Wiiflow 4.1.2 Download

Instructions to Install Below the Description and Links

 Description:
hey guys, FIX94 here, felt like releasing 4.1.2 today, theres not much changed but still they are bugs in 4.1.1 we should fix fast ;) 
-fixed a fatal bug that you cant see your wii games on first boot 
-fixed plugin music doesnt work if you dont have background music normally 
-fixed custom missing covers doesnt work properly -rewrote parts of the alphabetic sort system, now the plugins in the plugin menu are also sorted 
-added support for korean wii games (use it with neek or a korean wii) 
-removed the press b on channel icon to switch to emu nand and back, this is now done on the fly by just selecting NAND as partition, of course this function is still completely disabled for neek users ;) -removed the ios and force cios load options from the ini so they are only settable in the wiiflow startup menu from now on, that should stop wiiflow with mixing up ini and nand save options 
-added a ini option to disable the source menu, use_source (enabled by default) 
-finally added a "Back" button to the startup menu
 -added plugin subfolder cache file creation to prevent overwriting on same filenames based on the coverFolder option in plugin inis, "subfolder_cache" in "EMULATOR" domain, enabled by default (thx matt0620 for base patches)

Wiiflow 4.1.1: As promised, I’ve added plugin support for music files in r888:
http://www.mediafire.com/?9husvjt6vl6v166
The usage is quite simple, copy over this ini file into your plugin folder:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/25620767/music_player.ini
and edit the path to where your music is. Currently the ini is set to the default wiiflow music path, “wiiflow/music”. You can choose whatever you want. You cant add filetypes, its currently mp3 and ogg only, thats because of wiiflows internal player. You can select it as every other wiiflow plugin then and if you press play it wont start a dol but the music file you selected, easy as that ;)

WiiFlow 2.2‎ ‎

 As of WiiFlow 2.1 we now have the ability to upgrade your WiiFlow via the internet


This is currently not an automatic process, select the "?" or About menu on your theme (bottom left icon on default theme).
Then Choose "Upgrade", this will check and advise if there is a newer version and offer the ability to download it.

NOTE: If you use PriiLoader you must use a Forwarder DOL in order to use the update feature.
If you install the WiiFlow DOL in to PriiLoader the Update will not work.

Please see Loading Methods for further info on Forwarders and PriiLoader.

Upgrade from Wiiflow 1.1

Since Wiiflow 2.2 the configuration files have changed. The change was required to maintain a constant speed,
while the amount of options incremented.

To upgrade your Wiiflow 1.1 installation to 2.2, you'll have to take the following steps:

1. If the directory /apps/wiiflow/wiiflow exists, move it to /wiiflow.
2. Remove the directory /apps/wiiflow.
3. Remove the directories /wiiflow/themes.
4. Download the No Dol package from our Google Downloads page.
5. Extract the No Dol package in the root of your drive (it has a /wiiflow directory inside).
6. Download the correct wiiflow version for your wii, you can also find this on the Google Download page.
7. Extract the wiiflow zip file in the root of your drive (it has a /apps/wiiflow directory inside).

In short, you'll have to make sure that all configuration files are deleted, you will have to start fresh. You can
keep the covers, boxcovers and cache directory. All other directories have been updated.

WiiFlow Installation

As with the original Wiiflow release, you have several options when installing Wiiflow 2.1.  You can run it off via the HBC or install it via a forwarder channel.  Each option has some pros and cons so pick your the installation method akin to your needs.
For complete details you can check out this http://www.wiiflowiki.com/Wiiflow
use the d2x cIOS v7b1d Installer. to make it work if not it will never detect your usb drive.
Now on with the App installation.
If you are using the installer, make sure to install all bases, starting with ios 245 and the lowest available base, working your way up to 251 base 58, using IOS236 to do the install.
In the first option you come in the intaller(cIOS Selection), it will choose automatically IOS 58 (AHBPROT) for you. If you don't have it , select IOS 236 and then on the following page where you actually install d2x, you select it like this:

version: v7beta1d
base: 37
slot: 245

Press A and wait for it to complete, then Press A again to continue.

version: v7beta1d
base: 38
slot: 246

Press A and wait for it to complete, then Press A again to continue.

version: v7beta1d
base: 53
slot: 247

Press A and wait for it to complete, then Press A again to continue.

version: v7beta1d
base: 55
slot: 248

Press A and wait for it to complete, then Press A again to continue.

version: v7beta1d
base: 56
slot: 249

Press A and wait for it to complete, then Press A again to continue.

version: v7beta1d
base: 57
slot: 250

Press A and wait for it to complete, then Press A again to continue.

version: v7beta1d
base: 58
slot: 251

After this Press B to exit.

Be sure to delete gameconfig1.ini and gameconfig2.ini in /wiiflow/settings, all WDM files /wiiflow/codes/wdm, and also your /wiiflow/cache/lists folder!
Note: These dol's are less tested than previous betas, but may very well be more stable than the most recent releases. The entire sound handling has been changed/rewritten and things seem to freeze up a lot less.

Run Wiiflow via the Homebrew Channel

This is the simplest way to run Wiiflow but will leave you out of the more interesting features of the application.  Plus you’ll have to run wiiflow via HBC everytime instead of just clicking a channel.
  • Download the proper Wiiflow version you want to use (see above in the requirements)
  • Extract the WiiFlow archive to the “apps” folder on either your SD Card / Fat Partition on your Hard Drive.
  • Launch Wiiflow via the HBC
Simple right?

Run Wiiflow from via a Forwarder channel

A forwarder channel is simply a channel on your Wii Menu that launches Wiiflow.  It’s not the easiest way to install Wiiflow but it’s definitely the most rewarding.
Important Note: If you’re going to install Wiiflow on your SD Card, you need to have it on the slot everytime you boot up your Wii.
This is the most basic installation of WiiFlow:
  • Download the proper Wiiflow version you want to use (see above in the requirements)
  • Download the WiiFlow Forwarder Channel
  • Copy all the required files into your SD Card / Fat Partition on your Hard Drive
  • Extract the WiiFlow archive to the “apps folder on either your SD Card / Fat Partition on your Hard Drive
  • If done properly, you should get the following path
    1SD:\wiiflow\language.ini
  • Connect your SD/HDD to your Wii and boot it up
  • Run the Homebrew channel and from it the WAD Manager.
  • Copy the boot.dol file from the Wiiflow directory (the one you’ve extracted in step 4) and place it on the root of your SD / hard drive.  If you’re upgrading your Wiiflow installation, you can skip this step if you’re going to use the same boot.dol or simply replace it with the one you’re going to use.
  • On the WAD Manager select the cIOS you wish to use (or simply the cIOS version of Wiiflow that you’ve downloaded) and install ‘WiiFlow-WFBJ(honey).wad’
  • Wait for the Installation to Finish and you’re done.
If you encounter any problems, just post a comment below!
Good day people!

Saludos gente!
