    Lightbulb Internet Channel without Updating System

    I'm looking for the answer to an annoying dilemma.

    My new Wii arrived with what is most likely a corrupt Wii Sports disk, so I'm loathe to make any "modifications" that might void the warranty until I'm sure the disk is solely at fault.

    I also noticed that I am on 4.0U, which, if I'm not mistaken, leaves open the possibility of installing Bootmii to boot2. However, I would really like to grab the Internet Channel.

    Is there some method to have BootMii installed to boot2 and have the Internet Channel now that the system requires an update to 4.2?

    The internet channel does not have any update on it. Or at least what I know lol.

    Just use the "wii system update" to update.

    My Wii is brand new and does not have the Internet Channel.

    To acquire it, I would normally need to go to the Shopping Channel and "buy" it for free; however, to access the Shopping Channel, I would need to update from System Menu 4.0 to 4.2.

    I also wish to install BootMii to boot2 to prevent bricking, but have been led to understand that updating to 4.2 would destroy that opportunity.

    1. Are my assumptions correct?
    2. Is there a way to install the Internet Channel without updating to 4.2 to enable the Shopping Channel?

    To answer your questions, your wii was just made so you cant install bootmii as boot2. In order for it to install as boot2, the console would have had to been made prior to october of last year. Since your console was made not too long ago, bootmii would have to install as an ios and that method can cause problems. Dealing with your internet channel, that channel itself does not have an update in it. But since you would be getting the channel from nintendo, they would make you update your system. The way around that is if you were to softmod the console, you could install that channel and any other files needed for that channel by downloading them from this site. That same thing can be done for the shopping channel but you would need to get the newest version. The older shop channel used ios51 but the newer one uses ios61. So to get the shop channel, you would need to download and install ios61 and also the newest shop channel which changed when nintendo came up with the 4.2 firmware.
    If I have helped you in any way, please thank me by pressing the little thanks button.

    Just don't ever use the "Wii system update" if you value your softmod!
