    Can't access Wii store unless I update, anyway around it?

    I just got a Wii for Christmas. I haven't done any kind of modification to it yet. I would really like to buy some games in the Wii store, however it won't let me access the store until I update. I was hoping I could get around updating since I want to stay on 4.1 firmware. (I would like to get a Wode jukebox and won't be able to play PAL games on 4.2 unless I do some softmodding.) If I click to update it I am assuming it will update the firmware.

    Is there any way around this aside from softmodd?

    TIA
    Amy

    You would need to softmod your wii anyways in order to play pal games on a ntsc console. And you can update your shop channel without even touching anything else on the wii. Theres guides on here for just that. You can even get wiiware and VC games without using the shop channel and also for free.
    If I have helped you in any way, please thank me by pressing the little thanks button.

    Hmmm, I'm pretty sure I read on the Wode jukebox site that it will play either PAL or NTSC games as long as it's not 4.2, no softmodd required.

    As for the rest I'll try to figure out what to search for, thanks

    that seems to be corrent, u can play out of region games just with modchip.
    4.2v seems to kill that support but if ur on 4.1 ur fine
