    hlp for a dummie

    Hi,I'm sorry if I ask a question that has been asked before but, I personally need to ask this.I have homebrew channel. Wii 4.3 E
    I wanted to download a new song for JD 4 and I needed to add Wii points.Shop said that i need a system update in order to use the shop channel. I avoided the wii sistem update because I am worried that it will brick my wii.What shall I do? Will I brick my console if I chose to update?
    Thank you in advance.

    Is your Wii softmodded? I'm guessing yes, but your question points to either no Priiloader installed or simply needing a shop update. If the latter only, look here.

    I letter bomb-ed my wii over a year ago so it is I guess....I do have Priiloader i think.When I go into the shop it doesn't let me in and i have 1 button,and it says system update.It says that I need to update my system and to come back after -,-.... So should I just do that? Or will my wii brick? I don't really understand one of methods already in the forum....

    Not sure what to tell you then... The instructions in the guide that nightstah linked you to are precisely explained. Just follow them as you are doing it and you will be fine. Priiloader will not allow you to update if it was set up correctly.

    If your softmod is suspect (ie, not wiihacks) or out of date, you can follow the softmod guide here. There's a section in the guide called "Update any existing softmod" (in spoilers) and also under Chapter 1, Part 1 (where you can click on the spoiler labeled "Softmods with HOMEBREW channel installed" that would be of particular interest...

    Well I think My softmod is not out of date or a suspect...
    What I don't understand is where do I put the wiimod.rar extraction....Wii mod icon in the apps folder and the rest of the files in my SD card or?

    Nevermind I figured it I extracted the whole thing into a folder wiimode in my apps folder but,I did all the instructions and the versions goes like 3,4,5,6.....20 there is no version 21....So I clicked latest and Its downloading something now.Now It's installing shop channel I don't know if Its the same version...Afterwards I will do the last instruction and see how it goes.Thanks guys you have been very helpfull.

    Thank you It worked.
