    I know that this channel doesn't do anything anymore, but purely for the nostalgia I'd like to install the channel on my Wii dashboard.

    It's very very hard to find though - for any region. Which is ironic as it's probably the only Nintendo channel (excluding those in the shop) which absolutely everyone can install without infringing a law.

    Thanks

    I got it, but it do not work anymore. Nintendo has removed the demos that it could stream.

    Yea,so unless someone could hack it with a custom streaming server,it's useless.

    I still have it too. The problem is: I don't know how to dump. If you can help me with that, I will send you the wad.

    It's just occurred to me that you can, in my experience, copy channels from the Wii system memory to an SD card in the Data Management area. No hacky stuff required.

    Of course, I'll need to do something to get that channel working on my Wii... not really sure what. Probably something quite hard unless the WAD installer will handle things by itself.

    This is true. I tried to use the channel just for the heck of it about a month ago, and it says something about the channel being no longer available. I just ended up deleting it.

    For the three American members, I am fully aware that the channel doesn't do anything as I've already said in my first sentence.

    It's a bit useless. I got rid of it when I got MP3.

    That would be difficult as my TV exploded (it was ancient) and I'm not getting a new one until June (after exams)

    "The quickkey you provided for file download was invalid. This is usually caused because the file is no longer stored on Mediafire. This occurs when the file is removed by the originating user or Mediafire."
    The DL link is not working.

    Hm, but then, why it is so big? (13 MB)

    EDIT: Gnac, tried it, it won't work as copying from the SD card. (I thoguht it'll not work)

    You have to dump your Wii's NAND to get the channel off unencrypted and with the ticket file. I remember there's some tutorial for thsi to how to make a WAD from the NAND...

    I've got this on my computer right now, I dumped it for Khuong a while ago. It's still useless though, plus I haven't packed it into a wad.
