About the new patch for the nintendo shop
Any probleme related for the update ? Mine is a 4.2 downgraded and Hijacked with banner bomb. Its the little update info, it say, any Add programe or stuff on your will will be deleted. ( they are talking about my HBC ? )
That mean if I want to update to get the Shop I need to redo all the softmod again....... ???
If you're referring to the October 20, 2009 Wii Shop Update, do not update using Nintendo's method!!!!

My Wii is a softmodded 3.2 upgraded using the "safe" upgraders to 4.2.
You should not need to update anything else if your Wii is softmodded at 4.2 already. I checked Wiimpersonator, and it only said that the Wii Channel was updated, and not IOS61 or anything else.
Hope that helps you out.
***As soon as I wrote this I just found out that Marcmax just updated the Wii Shop and IOS51 installer, so you can just use that to update the Wii Shop Channel***

what did he do again ?
Don't worry about using NUSD. Just download the updated Wii Shop and IOS51 installer from here and use it to update your Wii Shop Channel.

-Start NUSD, if it's the first time using it, it will generate a certificate for you, just restart NUSD and continue.
-With NUSD open click on the Database... button on the top right and follow through to System -> Shopping Channel -> YOUR Wii's REGION -> Latest.
-For some reason, V17 gets downloaded as the latest, so type in 18 in the version box to the right of the Title ID box up top.
-Then just make sure that Pack -> WAD box is checked and click Start NUS Download.
-A folder will be created in the NUSD install folder which contains Shopping Channel-NUS-v18.wad.
-Just copy that to the WAD folder on your SD card, insert it into your Wii and use your favorite WAD manager to install it.
-Have a Beer, (Root Beer if under age)

To run the Shop and IOS51 installer, just create a folder like Shop Updater or something you can remember within the apps folder of your SD card. Place the 42_shop_installer_21_oct_by_marc.dol file from ZIP file (linked to above) and rename it to boot.dol. Then just insert your SD card into your Wii and launch the Homebrew Channel, you should see an entry labeled the same as the folder you made. Launch that entry and the Wii Shop Update will begin. After successfully updating the Wii Shop Channel you can delete the folder your created on your SD card.
