    [Guide] Wii Shop Channel v21 Update

    Updating the Shop Channel:

    The Wii Shop Channel is a great thing to have, possibly the biggest selling point to why the Wii sold so well. You can purchase many great games and apps, most notably some of the best NES, SNES and Sega Genesis games! The Shop Channel has been given a number of updates in it's history and from time to time we have been greeted with a message telling us to update our Wii's to use the Shop Channel. No Wii Homebrew user wants to, nor should they ever, update their Wii. Luckily there is a way around this. It is possible to update only the Shop Channel allowing you to once again access your Shop Channel account as well as buy whatever new games you see and want.

    There are 2 ways to go about updating your Shop Channel, neither provides any benefit over the other aside from possible convenience so choose which ever method you wish to attempt below. Instructions are in the spoilers.

    Online Method (Multi-Mod Manager 13.4)



    Offline Method (All Wad Manager Programs)



    IOS 62 Installation/Explanation



    If your new to the Wii and not sure what to get in the Shop Channel I have provided some recommendations (in no particular order) in the spoiler below. These are my favorite games I've noticed are available from the Shop Channel and you may enjoy them too.

    When I load Multi-Mod Manager 13.4 my control disconnects. I wait a while and multi-mod does this strange matrix like thing. Then it goes to a black screen.

    You downloaded the attachment in that part of the guide right? I did upload the shop channel wad.

    Edit: I just double checked, the wad is definitely in that download, so again, did you download the Shop Channel 21 file I linked?

    I did download from that link and found it with the wad manager. I was using the shop update file from media fire before and that why couldnt find it. I am on step 5 now and launched the shop channel from the wii menu. There is a user agreement there. I thought that wasn't suppose to be there

    It's not supposed to be. It wasn't there the few times I've done this, but accept the user agreement anyway.

    I did that. I initially didn't want to do that. I was reading the user agreement and it said that it does random unannounced updates. I did not want to deal with that. For some reason after accepting the user agreement it turned on the WiiConnect24. So i turned that off. Is there any way Nintendo updates can get through
