    EDIT: Title shoulda said softmod, not homebrew. Oh well.

    For about the 5th fucking time now, my Dad has somehow managed to update the Wii and completely rape all of my softmod/homebrew stuff.

    Is there anything I can do besides completely re-doing the mod process? It isn't hard, but i'm getting REALLY tired of having to do it over and over. Because it requires me finding/downloading a bunch of shit again. I should know by now not to bother deleting any of the files I need >_>
    Just curious if I can skip any of the steps to re-modding the stupid thing or not, or if all is lost in an update.


    Also, is there a way to completely remove the Wii shopping channel? Because it just asks to update the Wii, my Dad does, and he god damn well knows better.
    Being able to replace it with a "FUCK YOU" sign would be nice too.

    Can't you just hide the channel on the very far right?
    Also why don't you just use sciifii to mod the wii. Much faster and easier than doing it manually.

    You might be able to extract the shop channel banner and inject your own custom "Fuck you" dol.

    Download the latest Wii Shopping Channel .wad to avoid getting the update message and gaining the ability to use the Shopping Channel without updating.

    The "FUCK YOU" is more important here. [​IMG]

    That mighta been an option 3 updates ago.
    Now i'm out for vengeance >_> He's lucky I don't link the shop channel to BME pain olympics or something.
    Figured out how to mess with the channel, woot.

    and thanks purplesludge. I just googled that and it's going to save me a lot of damn time and effort. I didn't even know this miracle existed.
