    Can't install updates on wii in order to play certain games

    We can't play certain games on our Wii as Nintendo tell us that its been "modified" by having homebrew on it and they want £200 to "repair" it!!! I'm not at all technical so don't understand what homebrew is even! Some games work fine but 2 new ones we got for xmas are asking for an update to play them. We can't connect long enough to the internet to install an update and then it gives us an error code anyway. I can perform a connection test which works fine though. However I can't get the shopping channel but can get the weather channel. As I mentioned, I'm not at all technical so if anyone can help us, I need real layman speech please!??? Many thanks

    Nintendo is so stupid.

    First run one of the softmod guides on here. I like Softmod ANY Wii. After that, use my Update All Your IOS's guide. That will update everything you need to play all games and channels on your Wii. It will also block updates (which can cause permanent damage to your Wii) and provide you with a ton of brick protection. Both guides are linked in my signature.

    I know this may seem overwhelming at first, but it will be beneficial in the long run. The combination of those two guides will protect you from any brick other than a hardware failure.

    There are still some things that can brick your Wii, but you would have to do something really stupid like following a youtube guide or deciding to mess with system stuff on your own, instead of following a guide. Even then, your Wii can still be fixed either through instructions on here, or in some cases, paying one of the members on here a small fee (far cheaper than Nintendo) to fix it for you.

    First introduce yourself like SL and nightstah said, then read my previous post.

    Modifications. There are softmods (software modifications) and hardmods (hardware modifications).
    Please follow the directions we gave.
