    I need a little bit of help with getting the PAL Wii Shop Channel on my NTSC-U Wii, does anyone know how I can do this? I'm sure I could run it on my emuNAND drive but I don't really know how to actually get the files required, I can't find them.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    The EUR Shop channel and the USA Shop channel actually use the same software.
    If you want to download some games/channels from the PAL region, use Wii mod or any region changer to change the shop country code to UK.
    (Wii mod and ARC will tell you which code is UK)
    Warning: You will be unable to receive any pending gifts if you change the shop region. The shop channel will warn you the same.

    It works, but it wants me to update. I tried using WiiSCU to manually update the shop to v19 and IOS61 to v5661, but it couldn't get the files from whatever server is hosting them. is there a way to get these files locally?

    The latest shop channel is v21
    I don't think you can get the latest shop channel locally, since even just dance 2014's update partition only contains shop v20
    NUS downloader can help you.

    I tried installing the v20 shop channel by using NUS downloader and packing it as a wad, but that didn't work, I'm not sure where else to go with this

    v20 will not work. You need v21.
