    Want to install Netflix and maybe update Wii

    Hi there
    It's been ages since I used the Wii and want to start using Netflix.
    I need to do some system updates before I do and am not really sure how to proceed with doing any possible damage?
    I don't even know what software version I have - and don't even know where to look know to find out.
    Do I need to update the Internet Channel or Shopping Channel or both?
    I can't go onto either without updating first it says.
    I have just updated to the latest version of Homebrew.
    I softmodded the Wii quite a few years ago with Zelda.
    Basically I'm stuck now.
    I must have done a little research some months ago as I had Netflix icon on the screen, but when I click it it just looks for something on the SD card, so I don't know.....
    Can anyone guide me in the right direction please?
    Many Thanks
    Moira

    Wow..You Need an overhaul.

    Go to the link at the bottom of my Signature, Called Soft mod Any Wii.
    Start from Soft Mod With Homebrew Channel Installed.

    Please Follow it All the Way Through.
    Please Read Everything A Few Times ,Then Proceed.

    Thank you so much jax.
    I know why you say read the instructions a few time - of course I didn't need to and wondered why it wasn't working!
    I read it all again and found a whole section that I missed.
    It's great that I don't have to use any of the old apps to run my games now - presumably it's ok to delete them now?
    I do have one problem though and it's the shopping channel - it won't load. I did the update ok but the screen just goes black forever.
    The whole point of updating was so i could use Netflix - what do i do now?
    Here is my latest system check.
    Do I need to update the IOS as I couldn't see an option. I clicked on IOS Manager I think but all I could see were a load of numbers, so I exited a bit sharpish.

    If you followed that Guide then it will work as it installs the latest version of ios56 which the shop channel runs off of.
    By the way I don't believe that's the new System Check ,as it's the same as the first one.

    Can you post the new system check in this post please.

    Shall I just run the whole of it again then?
    Will try to run a sys check later as the tv is comandeered by OH at the weekend ;-)
    Thanks for your ongoing help.

    This is the sys check I did this morning - I ran everything again.

    Did you start From where I ask you to start from?
    Because you still have some old ios and are missing a couple of ios.
    Please start from the Soft mods With homebrew channel installed.


    You are missing these Ios's 53,55,56,57,38.
    Without ios 56 you are not going to be able to use the Shop Channel.

    I started with 'Softmods with Homebrew Channel installed', then went to Part 2.
    I didn't do part 3, because I did that yesterday.
    I did all the SD Card formatting, downloaded the mod pack for Europe, downloaded the CIOS pack.
    I extracted them both to the SD Card so I had loose folders and files on the card. When I was asked if I wanted to overwrite I said to merge the files.
    I didn't run the IOS update or Shop Channel options this morning when I ran it all again.
    I couldn't verify the checksums as the sfv programme didn't seem to want to run ........
    The wads installed - although there were more than 30 (I've got a mac)
    I couldn't downgrade to upgrade to patched version 4.1
    I ran Priiloader yesterday didn't run it again today.
    I downloaded the apps to the SD card and hoped that would be it.
    Have I overlooked a huge chunk?
    Everything seemed to load/install ok. The Wii is still working and games are still loading - where did I go wrong .....
