Because there are 10 threads a day asking how to get the Homebrew Channel on a virgin Wii with Firmware 4.0, here is the guide. Step 1 WAIT! that's it. at this point there is no way. you can't with a mod chip either. REASONS: To put homebrew on via a modchip, you need the trucha bug in at least one IOS, which Nintendo has patched up in 4.0. The bug is completely gone. No, you can't use MarioKart Wii to patch in a version of the Homebrew Channel because you would need the trucha bug, and on 4.0 it's gone. No, you can't use the Twilight Hack, because Nintendo has disabled that as well. When you put the TPHack on your system menu, it will remove all "bad" code from it, rendering it a regular save file, with no hacks. If you accidentally upgraded via the Update button, sorry, but your just going to have to wait. If you bought your Wii with 4.0 on it, agian, sorry, but you'll have to wait.
