    Question one more newbie...tad late....to add to ur board

    Hi I'm Jen. Mom of 3 boys, ages 5,6, &7. Unfortunately I came in to the forum and asked my question in a few diff. places and "jumped in the water before testing the temp first" by reading all of the recommended forum rules. I have never posted to a forum b4 (well it has been about 10 years and about 8 operating systems ago.) I am just trying to find out a few questions. I am not a techie, but I do know how to build a computer from scratch, and I just received my IC3 certification Monday. I realize how important it is to be up to date with technological terms since my son knows more than I do, sitting there talking about "mods"....<---what are those??? So, by posting where I wasn't supposed to I got yelled at already......I have ADHD/bipolar,and tend to have a hyperactive focus on what i need/want, but get distracted easily when it comes to something I am beyond lost on. I hate to upset others and when I do I become hyperly focused on what I did wrong and will do everything I can to 'fix' what I did wrong....sorry I am rambling....
    I bought christmas on E-bay last year incl. a wii infused with HB channel. had all the latest updates and version 4.3u. Kids played all the time, but the last game system I owned was Super Nintendo, and I really am not a gamer....never had the ambition to use it til I couldn't pay DTV $100 a month I need to get my wii on the internet, but I don't know how, and I am scared of bricking my wii, since I already have problems with it freezing and not reading the SD card. I am really trying to learn the rules here and I don't want to be booted from ur forum. so I hope someone can help me understand this a lot better!

    You can easily just follow the instructions in the internet settings in the wii settings. No need to fear of bricking it.

    Use this tool for formatting SD cards: http://url.llaffer.com/sdformat

    Use Full Erase (not quick). It's slower, but will fix any issues that may occur due to doing a quick format.

    Either one works.

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    When I connected to the internet i got a code 61212 to update my system and accept user agreement. do I say yes??
    also I am having problems where every once in a while my system seems to lock in mid game and the only way to get out of it is by hard booting the system by unplugging the cord. neway to fix that??

    Just hit no you don't want to update... That's all. The system will then connect to the internet as normal.

    Now what you are experiencing in a freezing. You don't need to unplug the system, just hold the power button, and it will shut off. Don't heed it too much attention. I have noticed It is very common after modding a wii... I mod other people's Wii's as a hobby, and its very common.

    Yes to the agreement, but remember: don't update the wii. If you do, you will lose your softmod, and risk bricking your wii...
    You shouldn't need any update since you are already on 4.3U anyways.
    You can then proceed to download Netflix from the wii shop channel as you would with any other wii.

    EDIT:
    just noticed you are only getting bubbles on your HB Channel. You may want to go through this guide ( http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html ) it will update your softmod, and restore the previous apps that were in the HBC...
    Its really thorough. Make sure to read/follow all the steps carefully.
    You can go ahead and install Netflix first then go through the tutorial.
