    Help for updating Wii 4.1E

    Hi guys

    First of all, I THINK I am posting in the correct place. If not, feel free to move the thread

    Second off, I am a NOOB to the FULLEST - you'll literally need to talk to me as if you were talking to a braindead idiot!

    Now for my question:

    I have a softmodded Wii. I softmodded it myself in July/August. I have priiloader and the homebrew channel on it. It is a 4.1E Wii. Basically, I haven't touched the Wii since like August. I now want to access the Shop Channel so I can buy so classic Wii games. Trouble is, when I try to, it demands a system update. I HAVEN'T updated it yet. I want to know if it is safe for me to do so.

    Now I don't know/remember if I have a NAND backup or boot2 (I barely remember what they are). The only facts I can provide are the following:

    • 4.1E Wii
    • I have Priiloader and it says, under homebrew channel in the priiloader menu, "Bootmii IOS".
    • My system menu has homebrew channel, USBloaderCFG, Backup Disc Channel and BackupHBC (in addition to the usual standard channels).

    Can I run the system update to access shop channel?

    Thank you for helping a noob out

    No if you run the update your mod will be gone... In my signature is a thread of the latest channel and ios's. Get the shopping channel V20 and install it via wad manager to update.

    Have you made sure your disc and online updates are blocked in the priiloader hacks menu?

    Thank you for the quick reply!

    Errm i recall blocking the online updates on the priiloader hacks menu and the disc ones but I'll double check.

    So if I update, you say the Mod will be gone - what do you mean by that? Just that my system menu won't have the homebrew channel etc and that dopemii will be gone and priiloader will be gone? Because I don't mind if that happens as I probably won't be hacking for the very near future. Alls I want is to run the system update - will it brick or just erase all the mod stuff?

    Thank you for the quick reply!

    Incidentally the guide on your sig is the one I used to soft mod my Wii in the first place

    Still don't know if I have boot2 or the IOS. I made a NANDbackup but again, don't remember what it looks like :S. I have a folder on my Laptop called "bootmii": it contains the following:



    I don't know if that is the NANDbackup or not?

    Is there anyway of checking if I have boot2?

    I just want to make sure that, if this picture is the nandbackup, and as I have priiloader, if therefore, by updating using the system update to access shop channel, I won't brick. Thanks!

    AND the picture didn't paste.

    Basically the "bootmii" folder is 539mb and contains two folders ("bootmii" and "private"), a boot.elf, a text doc called "installer", and two files called "keys" and "nand".

    If you except the update your wii won't play any games from usb or disc. Just follow what I have told you by installing the shopping channel.... Maybe update ios56.... Voila update msg gone.

    I wasn't talking about the modding guide.

    Ok narse, thank you very much.

    So just to clarify as I'm an ABSOLUTE noob!

    1) Download the europe-usa-jap Shopping-Channel-v20.wad

    2) Create a folder on my formatted SD Card called "wad" and place the shopping channel file into this folder.

    3) Download WAD Manager and create a folder called "apps" and place it in. (NOTE - I've already done this once when I softmodded before I formatted my SD card - wad manager is no longer in my sd card, but will it still be installed on my Wii? If so, can I skip the wad manager step?)

    4) Start WAD manager. Here's where I'm confused - I'm not sure about the "select the IOS to use for install part" - which IOS should I select?

    5) Install the shopping channel wad

    The ios/cIOS should default to 249. If 249 doesn't work try 236/250/36 by scrolling through with the d pad.

    There is a link in the wad manager guide to get the Wad Manager 1.7 and no it isn't installed on the wii.

    Download ios 56 as well just to make sure you have the latest and install that as well.

    Ok, I understand. And IOS 56 - where should I place it on my SD card? And so shall I select IOS56 as the IOS to use for install? (step 7 of http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...ger-guide.html)

    Apart from that are my steps ok?

    Thank you so much for your patience!

    Ios 56 wad goes in the WAD folder as well.. Install it the same as you are going to do the Shopping Channel.

    Doesn't make any difference

    The host of the files looks like it is down so

    Hotfile.com: One click file hosting: Shopping-Channel-NUS-v20.rar

    Hotfile.com: One click file hosting: IOS56-64-v5662.rar

    Heres some other links
