Internet Channel - Opera Browser
I've followed the excellent guide for softmodding a 4.2u device.
Works great. Have HBC, BootMii and USB Launcher working.
What I cannot seem to get working is the Internet Channel.
I know that it is free to download the software from Nintendo, but I started my modding *before* I knew that. I've been warned against allowing a system update and that is what is required to get the download so I tried other methods.
I downloaded the OperaBoot from Homebew but that just launches the channel which hasn't been installed yet.
I downloaded two WADS of approximately 35MB apiece (internet-ntsc.wad). Both of these fail on -1035 errors very quickly when run from Wad Manager 1.4.
Everything I've read says this should be a bunch easier than I seem to be making it.
My knowledge of the basic theory of IOS loading lead me to question if I had loaded all the necessary IOS. Do I need to install another IOS? Can I use a utility like SignCheck to verify broken installs?
Should I be using a different WAD/Channel loader?
Can I let the Wii System update occur? Or do I just risk bricking my system?
