    I'm finally getting Netflix and I went to set my wii up on my Dad's TV so he could use netflix. After I set up my internet (because I got new internet since the last time my wii was used) I confirmed the update, forgetting that I never removed my softmod (I haven't even turned this thing on in like over a year so give me a break). Thankfully, no bricking occurred as of yet. That's the situation so far.

    What I'm looking to achieve her is:
    - remove softmod so the wii is simple to update (for my Dad's simplicity)
    - Get access to wii shop
    - Download the Netflix Channel.

    Help is much appreciated.

    Googling is not resulting in great results.

    Did you softmod your wii with any clue to what you were doing?

    There's very little reason why your wii would brick if you did an official update. Just update your wii like normal to 4.3u, go on shop channel, and download the netflix channel. If you want to softmod it again (depending on what you did with your wii, the homebrew channel may be deleted) just use letterbomb.

    When I softmodded it I entirely new what I was doing, but I haven't done anything with the wii in a year so I don't remember anything just what I've read of random sites in the past half an hour.

    When I try to update officially I get an error, more specifically error 32004.

    Oh you don't need to remove the softmod to get access to the Shop channel. You can just download the Wii Shopping Channel wad through NUS Downloader and install it that way. Once you have the channel, you can just download Netflix from there.

    Strange, what you can do is get Modmii for windows. Download updated IOS (including 80, would not recommend to download newest 70), download 4.3u system menu, and download newest wii shop channel. You can then use Multimod Manager from the homebrew channel to install of it and you should be set. If you don't have Multi Mod manager, you can get it from filetrip.net.

    When you softmodded your wii, did you block online updates?

    So I download the most recent version for the shopping channel, then save the wad to my SD card?

    I totally forgot how to install WADs I know you use a program I just don't know which one >_>

    So I got the .wad and installed it but when I open it (the channel) I get Error #002 with a blue screen and white text. I didn't do anything to try to fix it because I fear of ****ing **** up.

    Where did you get the WAD and what did you install it with?

    Why would you tell him to update? There is no point in going past 4.1. He is just going to lose Priiloader. You are making a simple process much more difficult.

    If I'm not mistaking that's what he wants. Why would you waste a post to target me? Something completely unrelated to this thread. You didn't even post any better advice, just pointing out my posts.

    And for your information, it takes the logic of a 12 year old to understand the wii. The process is not difficult to begin with or end with. Sure it may be more difficult just like 2 cents is more than 1 cent. In the end, it's not difficult at all.

    You turned
    1. Download and install the Shopping Channel
    2. Download Netflix
    into
    1. Download the and install Shopping Channel
    2. Download and install IOS80
    3. Download and install System Menu 4.3
    4. Download the Priiloader installer and hacks_hash.ini file if you don't have it already
    5. Reinstall Priiloader
    6. Re-enable the hacks
    7. Download Netflix
    In the end, they both achieve the same thing except he has less brick recovery options after your method.

    Except he needed to update IOS 56, if you had read anything...

    Downloading IOS 80, shopping channel, system menu 4.3 is all done at once with an additional click. He probably never had priiloader, plus he wanted it gone as I have pointed it several times.

    You are so fucking stupid sometimes read the god damn thread.

    I forgot to mention IOS56, but that doesn't matter since that adds a step to both processes. It's pretty likely that he has Priiloader since just about ever softmod guide includes it. He never said he wanted it gone. You didn't say it either.

    The issue is resolved, so there is no point in continuing this conversation.
