    I believe you need the correct browser for your region and you need to be updated to 3.1 or 3.2 for it to work. I would guess 3.2 but since I already bought it off the WiiShop long ago, I have had no need to install another copy. All regions have been dumped and are floating around the internets, I don't see any reason for it not to work.

    *Edit - Looked it up. You must be running 3.2 to use any of the Opera Browser Channel Releases

    Google is your friend, now use it. Stop asking useless questions when you can get it with google.

    It wasn't a useleass question, and when people say to use the search function on this site they say it because somewhere 4 posts down you would have found your answer. Unfortunately this is a question that hasn't been answered very often as the Opera Browser doesn't work like a Virtual Console game. He also wanted to make sure that it wasn't just the JP version that could be installed, another resonable question. Next time take the time your going to use to flame someone and actually attempt to help. If you found the answer with google so easily why not send him the link? Then instead of being an asshole, you are providing services to the site. If this site based answering questions by saying Google has all the answers, then we wouldn't be helping anyone. The point is to keep the answers in one general place.

    If you don't have anything nice to say, it is better to shut up instead of talking.

    @TC: Yes but it depends on your Wii region, you will need a correct WAD file in order for it to work.

    So you'll need to find a US release of Opera, try looking up.

    Not sure if you can upgrade it, as I have downloaded it long time ago.

    Hope that helps.

    Ok, back to the topic...

    My Wii is JAP, running on 3.2J and D2C Key. I would like to have US version of Opera Browser installed (which I have) - would this be possible? Thanks...

    You can try freethewad it first before installing it, but I can't guarantee your Wii's safety, as it might brick it.

    Really? When I booted up Mario Kart it didn't give me the Opera Browser. I've been trying to install many Opera browsers in my Jap Wii already but to no avail. Sigh. [​IMG]

    Mario Kart installing the Internet Browser? In the US maybe? I have the German version and there was no Internet Channel coming with it - at least it didn't install anything alike on my Wii, the only thing I noticed was that Mario Kart Wii updated the system firmware. So can anyone confirm that the browser comes with Mario Kart Wii?
