Good Way to find out is to use the shop channel.As it will tell you to update or not. I did this over and over again.I am on the shop channel now, works but i read a post that a guy is having problems. His problem is just dance 4 songs he bought, I'd like to get answer on this too. As the mii channel,pic channel and weather channel are all in the list. Maybe some kind modder out there can help. There is alot out there.
So any idea how I can update GX Loader to 1180? As I say, if I copy the boot.dol from the SD to the HDD, it still loads 1109 so I don't get where it's loading that from. It's only if I then go to Homebrew Channel and launch it from the SD that it loads 1180.
I thought of doing an update from within GX Loader but the WiFi isn't working now. It has previously but I've recently updated the router's firmware but I checked it was on WPA2 Personal AES and broadcasting the SSID and tested with a laptop next to the Wii and that finds the SSID and connects OK with the passphrase entered. I was going to try switching the router to WPA and see if the Wii can find it then but ran out of time and that's not really secure enough for regular use anyway.
Is this necessary if you ONLY wish to play games from other regions?
Ah, I think I've worked out what I need to do. USB Loader GX must be installed as a Full Channel, so I need to use MMM and USBLoader_GX_V3_0_UNLR_Channel_AHBPROT.wad to uninstall that, then install USB Loader GX-UNEO_Forwarder_5_1_AHBPROT.wad which will look for the boot.dol on the USB or SD and use whichever version is installed there. I've also got r1202 which appears to be the latest (certainly newer than 1109 or 1180 I tried yesterday), so I'll try that with d2x v9.
