This is my first post here on wiihacks. I posted this idea on another forum I am a member of but haven't recieved any responses or anthing so I'll try here to see if its workable...

First off, I don't develop hacks, mods, cios, wads, apps; I simply use them so big ups to developers out there who take their time to create them. Since I have no knowledge of creating these things my idea may just be a shot in the dark...
I have a modded wii (softmod) 3.2u updated to use the shop channel (wii system channels updater). I have downloaded "the internet channel" just recently and noticed that there is really no restriction (that I am aware of) on what sites you can visit. I was trying for shits and giggles to see if I was able to download files via .rar and .zip format. Wii was unable to recognize the format of rar and zip BUT it did seem to want to TRY to download them.
So I ask: What kind of files/media can the wii download by means of the internet channel? If somebody can figure that out then could there possibly be a homebrew channel hack for virgin system menu 4.0 wii owners using the internet channel? Some kind of workaround with accessing files online through this???
I have no knowledge at the moment in the works of this so I thought that I would put this idea out there so that maybe, possibly somebody could create a working exploit for system 4.0.
