    As long as you can access the shop channel without it asking for an update, it will work. I've recently reinstalled Link To The Past from the Shop Channel with my hacked Wii. It works exactly the same as an unmodded Wii.

    Yes, so long as the correct IOS is installed. Open the Wii Shop Channel; if it says you need to update first, start Googling because I can't remember the correct IOS off the top of my head.

    RVL-Shopping-v21.wad and IOS62-64-6430.wad are the current ones that will allow you to go shopping on there.
