    Accidentally uninstalled my photo channel while testing the WADS listed in my last post:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=899...p;#entry1201709

    Would it be possible to recover it by doing an system update or downgrade using a wad extacted from a game disc in WADmanager? If not, are there any other ways of getting the chan back? Or would someone be nice enough to rip & release the jap ver or region free the US one?

    Thanks in advance.

    Download the 1.1 version form wii shop. But I don't know that 1.1 version is only a patch to 1.0 or it's actual channel.


    And if that not helps..........you must wait when someone will make a wad of it for you. Maybe I will do it. Uh...no. I have PAL wii....

    He may not want 1.1 though as he might use the mp3 codec functionality.

    Hm, that made me think... will the newer model Wiis (they have 1.1 without the MP3 functionality) can run 1.0 replacing the 1.1 if installed from WAD?

    I don't see why not, unless something like IOS is blocking it, but I think its not. Well, someone maybe should try it.

    Yay I'm writing it from wii!

    IF you have the wii shop like that:
    [​IMG]
    then select last icon with something like wii menu next to wiiware icon(this icon with squares on big 'round' square [grammar and sense blah]). Then search something with photo channel icon (with flower) and have 1.1 in its name. It is for free.

    EDIT: I added a little help in understanding me. You should pick icon in red thingy

    Maybe we can make a 1.1 version with the MP3 stuff from 1.0.
    I've never actually looked into the WAD's of that channel, but it should be easy to do.

    Umm... can't you not uninstall the Photo Channel?
    I thought only the 1.1 update can be uninstalled...

    I uninstalled all the "garbage" channels yesterday(Photo 1.0 and 1.1, News, Forecast and others) and they all get deleted perfectly.
    The only thing is that News and Forecast came back with a white banner, exactly the same you get when the Wii is new(the very first ones in 2006).

    i tried removing the weather and news channel too, but they both had shared files and after removing them, the game channel (where the banner for whatever game is inserted is) was white like you describe, until i did an update. After the 'system update' the game channel then showed the banner for mkwii again but added the crap channels back. did you not get a prompt to perform a system update after removing them? i wonder what you did differently?

    Yeah, It tells me to update when I open the channels(News and Forecast), but everything else works fine.

    I built a custom WAD(4KB one, because WADUninstaller/Manager only checks the ticket) with the ID changed and the route to the system channels(00010000XXXXXXXX). Normal channels(like VC or homebrew ones) are 00010001XXXXXXXX, where XX is the title ID.

    Jayparadox,
    If you want remove completely Forecast and News Channels, you need to remove the channel:
    *[HAFE][Forecast Channel] located on folder: 48414645
    *[HAGE][News Channel] located on folder: 48414745

    You already do this, but you need remove too:
    *[HAFA][Forecast Channel Data] located on folder: 48414641
    *[HAGA][News Channel Data] located on folder: 48414741

    *I have named HAFA and HAGA as data, but i can't analyze for confirm this.
    *When I uninstaled this parts ("data"), the channel do not appear again.
    *And for last, I don't remember the root folder (000x000x)

    I have upload this files in a famous "GC Tracker". This search " All Wii Channels + WAD Manager (NTSC-U) "

    If you try reinstall, just install two parts and be happy!

    Yeah, I know about HAFA/HAGA too, but it looks cool on the Wii to have them with the original state [​IMG]
    It's just something personal [​IMG]

    tested it out & it is the full photo channel! *sigh of relief* There where also alot of other channels for free so....yes you guessed it.....I DLed them all & there is the jap vers. of nintendo chan (watched some free vids & a preview of mario sluggers), check mii out chan, everybody votes chan, 'some weird stamp thing chan', 'a chan that takes yoiu to the system menu?' Can confirm they all connect to the net & work.

    hope we all learn from my accidental mistake......add it to the HomeBrew knowledge base my friends

    thanks again you guys & kudos to ya! [​IMG]
