    Hi,

    One of my friends just bought a Wii. He doesn't have a credit card, and really doesn't want to pay $20 to get a Wii Points card just so he can download the Internet Channel.
    So I told him I could help him install it from a .wad.

    But the problem is, I can't find a US-NTSC .wad anywhere. All the ones floating around are PAL. And I know we're not supposed to ask for .wad files here, so I won't.

    But somebody told me I could also dump my Wii's memory, and then decrypt the Internet Channel from mine, then use that to install it on my friend's. I have no idea what that involves. Is there a guide to that somewhere? Because I'd be willing to do it, I just need the tools to dump and decrypt it from my Wii, and then to install it on another one.

    FreeTheWADs will also work. Be sure to get him to give you $5 and you buy it again [​IMG].

    You can use Waninkoko's FS Dumper, then use Trentfox's packer.

    *Cough* If you use Google and smart keywords, you can find it in 5 seconds like I did, 35.7 MB.

    LOL. I never bought it to begin with. I've had my Wii for a year and half now... remember, the Internet channel used to be free! (I still have the "Trial version" backed up on my SD card for kicks)

    I'll use the FS dumper... how will I know which channel is the Internet Channel?

    If you use Trentfox's Wad Packer it'll find it and display the name, then you can pack it easily.

    Title ID is
    Hex: 48414445
    ASCII: HADE

    Well, mynoud said the one he got was 35.7MB, that's the same size as the one I made.

    So I think it's fine.

    Now, my favorites and stuff... that's stored in the save game data, not in the actual program data, right? Of course, my friend probably wouldn't mind having some 20 pre-made bookmarks LOL

    LOL.

    I'll pass on that... I successfully made a .wad. I haven't gone over to his house yet to install it but I'm assuming it'll work. (Now, getting HBC on a new Wii with new IOS, that might be a problem... I'll take my downgrading guide with me)
