    wii internet channel

    hmm...not exactly a newb but i couldn't figure out where else to put this...

    anyway, i was wondering if anyone knew a hack/mod to alter the wii so that it might do more computer type functions. like download files, use flash player, or even run .exe files like wbfs manager.

    Do you have Home Brew Browser, there are several apps there, like ftp for Wii,
    Wii explorer enables you to look at the files on your SD card and USB.

    Install the internet channel, there is a thread on updating your shopping channel and it is free from Nintendo at the moment.

    Customers who bought the channel previously for 500 points will receive the points back on to their account.

    i am not interested in the shop channel. im talking about actually downloading files from the web browser like you might on a normal computer. i want to run flash player while surfing the internet. idk if its even possible. the wii may simply not be powerful enough.

    That's where you get the Web Browser from.

    i have the web browser. it is insufficient. it will not download files, it will not run flash player, it will not run most video or audio formats. im looking for a hack that will make the wii web browser work more like a computer browser. or maybe even a different browser.

    Thats about it. Internet channel, apps from HBB. Perhaps some people have written their own and would be willing to share.
