Hey guys so before this semester began around august i installed homebrew channel on my wii back at home. I am not sure what version was around back then but i know it was definitely below version .9. I am glad i also didn't have a chance to update to the recent firmware that ruins things. I was hoping someone well experienced could help me on how to update it...without officially updating it. 1) What is the best way to upgrade my homebrew channel? Can i do it via the homebrew browser? Or do i have to do it manually? (I realize i'm asking without my wii in front of me, but help me out if you can) 2) I believe i'm behind the recent firmware updates, i'm pretty sure i won't be allowed to go on shopping channel. I have heard that there are some custom fixes for this, but i'm afraid i don't know where to look. [I searched the forum but i don't think i used good terms to find my answer] If anyone here can help me out, i'd definitely be appreciating.
