Noob looking for intel on Flatmod and Firmware updates
I am brand new to the forums here. I have done softmods on PSP and Original Xbox and Hacked firmware on Xbox360 so I am not completely new to hacking and modding but I am new to the wii community.
I just purchased a brand new Wii and a Flatmod chip.
Before I did the install I looked everywhere for information on running firmware updates before the install but I could not find the info I was looking for.
Last night I installed my flatmod chip and I got the wii back together and running again without any issues, however I dont know what to do about running system updates.
I am aware that I cannot update to Firmware 4.0 until there is a work around for the homebrew channel.
Here is what I am confused about:
1. I cant browse the web until I update. There is no Browser at all. Is there a workaround for this? Can I download the browser on my PC and put it on my memory stick and copy it to the wii???
2. Is there a way to get anything off the shopping channel without updating to the latest firmware??
3. If I decide to update to 4.0 will is harm my system or modchip?? Could an update like this render the chip useless?
If this info is somewhere on this site or somewhere else Please bare with me as I have not had any luck finding anything except how to install the flatmod chip.
