    1. You will need the wad of the stuff you want. You can use the nus downloader to get it, or you can use modmii.
    2. You will need a wadinstaller homebrew on your wii. Multi mod manager can do the job.
    I use wadmanager_gui which has less functionality than mmm.
    Those installers require a vulnerable ios. This is usually ios36 installed in slot 236 (ios236)

    For the shopping channel, you will need the ios57 wad and the shopping channel wad.

    Would you be alright with helping me look at a syscheck to see if I have ios36 patched?

    Here's my Syscheck
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Maybe you can let me know if I need to update it anymore.

    You have ios236 which is the patched ios 36

    So, in case of multi mod manager, just switch to that ios 236 before you install the wad's

    You will need ios56.wad and the latest shopping channel.wad. The easiest way is to use modmii to download those for you.

    you could just use ModMii's Wizard, tell it that the wii is already modified, then say no to everything except updating the shop channel. You may also want to disable ModMii's option to install a usb-loader forwarder channel so all you are doing is strictly updating the shop channel.

    If you do this, ModMii will build you a custom guide to ONLY update your shop channel (which is basically as obcd said, launch mmm and install the shop channel and IOS56 WADs)

    Alright XFlak - I'm taking your advice on this. I just installed a virtualbox and am prepared to use your app. :) I'll let you know how it goes.

    Your system menu will be different depending on your selections

    Click Finish, and it will download the files u need, as well build a guide for you to follow (once u click finish the guide will pop-up in your browser)

    yes, that looks fine

    btw, if your softmod itself is outdated you could just tell ModMii that your Wii has NOT been modded before and it will get u to update all your softmods
