    So I downloaded the Forecast Channel .wad from NUSD. I installed it to vWii with YAWMM. Then I went to the Wii U menu and put it the DNS for RiiConnect24(185.021.082.064, and the other one(2nd DNS) to 8.8.8.8). I turned on WiiConnect24 with ConnectMii and loaded up the channel. It says unable to download the latest info. I have the Forecast Channel that works with all Wii's worldwide

    Nintendo discontinued the forecast channel back in June 2013 that's why it's not working

    Doesn't say it does not work on Wii U's vWii. Maybe I need to patch IOS31? (can you give me a link to the patcher for vWii?)

    @kyle9252 You have to dump your vwii's ios 31 using YABDM(Yet Another Blue Dumper Mod) to a wad file.
    Next, you need to download their patcher for your dumped ios31 wad on your sd https://github.com/RiiConnect24/IOS31-Patcher

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Sorry for double posting, you also need yo have the forecast or news channels on your vwii and of course, the dns srvers properly set on your console.
    On a side note the forecast channel dosen't work for me.
    P.s: Your wad has to be on the same folder as the patcher

    I already did all of that @Varon.B
    P.s Using settings editor gui (homebrew) you will have to change wiiconnect24 to enabled and shutdown mode to idle

    Try installing a News Channel v3 wad, because if you press Start when in vWii and press No on the next screen, you will find the secret vWii System Settings which will allow you to enable WiiConnect24 and connect to RiiConnect24 servers from there. It's all in this thread, hope this helps:

    I accidentally bricked my vwii installing the wads on accident. I saw on a different thread that you know how to fix a bricked vwii using Wii u homebrew. Can please explain to me how you did it?
