    In the thread here:
    http://psx-scene.com/forums/wii-disc-dumpi...-ssbb-disc.html
    this was said:
    I myself downloaded and burned the Dual Layer release of Super Smash Bros Brawl and let the update complete and now have dual channels, and when it comes out here (PAL) I am going to start playing that (not going to use the NTSC-U one before I use the PAL one) so was wondering if I could do that then play the PAL version.

    So can anyone confirm this working? And can you re-create your Wii Shop Account?
    Thanks.

    So once you have dual channels your Wii is like that forever? Gotta be careful then.

    No they will gone (i think) but you always get them back if you do the update again.

    because you proboly get the original firmware.

    if i'm wrong just say it.

    yeah, pretty sure you'll be stuck with them forever, at least unless we somehow find a way to hack the firmware. Just do the 15% trick if you gotta update

    I did the 15% trick, really good one, no harm to the console, no dual channels, and BRAWL. [​IMG]
    I don't think it will work, 'cause Dual channels isn't a regular thing, it's an actuall bug on the Wii Bios, a bug that doesn't harm, but maybe Nintendo can do something with that in the future.

    The problem is that the Wii, under NORMAL situations, will never install the duplicate channels. only if you mod your Wii and play a foreign game that needs an update (i.e. DSB:X) will you get duplicate channels.

    so, Nintendo wont release a fix for something that NORMALLY cant happen.

    Basically if I remember correctly there is a very easy trick to get rid of them.. and I already did get rid of them many times.. put in a game which has a newer update! Or update your Wii via Internet. formatting your Wii might allow you to get rid of them but I guess you will have to reinstall the SSBB update again.

    So just put them on the last tab of your Wii menu.. out of sight... and when the next update of your region comes.. install it.. and they should be away!

    I laugh that everyone seems to think that. Really do.

    Personally? I don't even care to get rid of them. Why do they bother everyone that much? Are people afraid of getting "banned"? I just find this whole thing kinda funny. One way or another, files that should not be on your wii are on it. 15% trick or not, I'm sure there's traces left around.

    Numerous people on these forums have tried and stated that this method doesn't work.

    Your friend is telling you crap.

    This does not work. The News and Weather channels are integrated into the firmware itself, formatting only gets rid of the channels you can delete normally. Hence this is the reason formatting won't delete the real News and Weather channels.

    There is currently no way of deleting these duplicate channels!

    games don't download updates, they are on the disc. That is the problem. IF you have a pal console for example, and you have a japanese SSBB game, it will try to update with the japanese firmware. This creates double channels -> duplicates of a few channels but the japanese ones. They can never again be removed. However, if you update instead of double channels you could also brick or semi brick your wii.
