    Stupid question

    Hi all.

    My Wii is set-up with the latest softmod and USB loader GX. I now have about 30 backup games on my USB hard disk (WD Passport, works great).

    Before starting the softmod installation I was told to disable the Wiiconnect24 option (which I did), and at the end of the installation nothing was said about it anymore.

    My question is: can I now enable it again ? I make frequent use of the Weather Channel, which seems unable to work without Wiiconnect24, even if my internet connection is setup and running.

    Also I don't think this has something to do with firmwares (that could disable soft-modding), since we are always asked before upgrading the firmware to newer versions.

    Any hint ?

    Thanks

    Just did the same than you a few days ago. The tutorial I followed said this:

    "Before you start make sure Wiiconnect 24 is off as it can stop bannerbomb working, you may turn it back on once you have completed the guide."

    So yes, you can enable it again with no fear

    even tho the tutorial says you can turn wiiconnect24 back on at the end of mod, i still would not, unless your running starfall, or preloader, or bootmii, whichever one of those blocks the auto update. you dont want to wake up to yhe light flashing on your wii, aside from that, you have internet, so the weather is always at your fingertips. i think i would rather be safe. not sorry

    Starfall, Preloader and bootmii only skip disc updates not net updates so its best to keep WiiConnect24 off.

    With Wiibrew apps taking off I am suprised no one has ported a weather app or a news app over to the wii....

    I've heard of a radio app but never tried it. Guess no-one focuses on these things when there's google and other weather related websites.

    You can turn it on pal. If you are currently on 4.1 firmware you don't even have to worry about N updating you, as there is no newer firmware than that. and N cannot update you unless you accept it

    I'm not trying to go off-topic but was trying to suggest that he could give it a try, he might be able to get weather from it or
    Use the internet Channel and go to weather sites\
    or use the pc

    At this point I already don't know if Nintendo updates via internet would be automatic (without asking you), or it would ask you if you want to install. Anyway, having a computer to search internet more easily with a real keyboard, I don't really wanna take the risk, it took me a long time to mod my wii and it works perfectly
