hey, today i updated via this nice guide to 4.2J, and so i think everything should be up to date.
when i go to use everybody votes channel, it tells me to set my region, and to update?
same with wii no aida.
everything else seems to work fine.
so, me being at 4.2, i clicked on update in the wii settings, and it started! (i thought it would just say, 'wii up to date' or something, and then the channels would work...)
i quickly powered it down, and nothing went wrong. but still, what would have happened if it let the progress bar finish?
would it re-install the stubs and stuff, and remove the trucha and cios things? but, i am at 4.2, so i don't know how it still thinks i can possibly update.

if anyone knows what file i have to update, please tell

no, but when i downloaded wii no aida (don't know the english name) from the shop, the same thing happens.
-edit. just checked, it's a japan only channel (pretty sure)

yeah i know, that is why i called it 'everybody votes channel' and not the japanese name

i was talking about 'wii no aida', but i have the problem with BOTH channels.

what would happen if i update via nintendo and do what they want me to do?
what is the worst that could happen?

This is why I installed a cIOS in an unused IOS slot and left it installed as such so I can easily repatch my wii if I should need to.

well it's not much effort to re-patch, and i would rather conform to the 'standard'.
i was just going to update, but i'm getting connection errors lol...

-edit.

damn, just lost what i wrote here, i refreshed by accident

anyway, it reinstalled the stubs, removed 249, kept bootmii and priiloader. maybe did some other stuff

but now the channels work! i think that you have to update once for your wii to ask you where you live in your region, and because i had never been asked, i could not use the two channels i was trying to.
so i updated, took like 3 minutes, gave me some message about parental control, then i went to the everybody votes channel, and it made me choose the city in japan where i 'live' lol, and now it is all fine

do you guys remember when you choose what city/area you live in? was it after you updated? whatever... i got it working, i'll see if i can remove the stubs and put back 249 and keep it working, i assume so.
thanks!
