've searched for a similiar topic, but found it difficult to find one...sorry if i've missed loads! OKAY, my questions: I already have an NTSC chipped/modded Wii, which already plays burnt games..perfect! BUT my question is not about playing the games it's about the other functions of the Wii: I bought my wii pre-chipped, so i do not know what kind of chip it is. I was told this when i bought it: 1. Don't update the wii through the system update option (one that connects directly to the net to update 2. I am allowed to update the wii through games (such as mario galaxy/metroid prime). - Which i have done before perfectly...the wii plays both metroid and galaxy with no troubles. My MAIN concern is, can i get other wii channels?? At the moment, i only have shop/forecast/mii/photo and news, but i would really like to have the other channels especially the browser... So the information i would like is: 1. IS there anyway i can download an update and apply it without the risk of bricking my wii? 2. Is there any way of downloading and applying the seperate channels (on an sd card or onto the wiimote) 3. Would an internet update of my wii render it bricked? (Perhaps this is an issue with certain chips, and not others?) Otherwise...i love my wii...but i would really like to get the new channels. Hope somebody can help....sorry for the beast of a topic! Added Info: I forgot to mention, when i try to access the shop channel to download more channels, i get the "please update you wii" message...which obvisouly i don't do because i am scared of bricking it (...bricking it...lol) I have already used the update contained on the mario galaxy NTSC Disc...which installed perfectly fine.
