    Question Download channels to softmodded wii?

    Is it safe to download channels from Wii Shop Channel with a softmodded wii? Or, alternatively, is it safe to download updates to channels already installed? (update Everybody Votes Channel that was downloaded before softmod) This is what I have installed:
    Homebrew Channel
    Configurable USB Loader with Nforwarder channel
    Bootmii/boot2
    a whole swack of homebrew applications

    Downloading channels is safe but not updating them. You can manually update channels, theres threads around this forum that show you how to do it.
    I installed things like Internet channel, BBC iPlayer and WiiWare games from the shop channel with no issues.

    No you use applications via homebrew channel to update them, I updated my shopping channel using this application

    Yep easiest way if you ask me.
    Get the app NUSD and download whatever channels you want direct from Nintendo..
    Have NUSD pack them as .wad's and install through WAD Manager..

    Some of em will occasionally need a new IOS (like the shop channel) you can grab with NUSD and pack as a wad as well.

    Thank you!

    EDIT: Oh, do I also decrypt them with NUSD too?

    Ive never decrypted anything with it. Ive used it to update the last two Shop Channel updates on my 4.1U Wii and to reinstall System 4.2 on our 4.2 Wii just as it is..

    Good to know. I bought 1,000 Wii Points on xmas before doing a softmod the next day, and never got a chance to spend them. Now that I know it's safe I'm going to download Mario 64.

    I had read an old post somewhere saying that Nintendo will know if you have unofficial channels loaded and ban your system, but I'm guessing that is either not true any more or never was to begin with.
