    Thanks!

    Do you NEED 4.1 to download the updated Nintendo Channel, and does this install/uninstall any patches or hacks?

    You don't need to update to 4.1. The new layout version of Nintendo Channel works on 4.0 (if possible), and it will work with StartPatch/Preloader patches. (Tested by me for the Japanese version of Nintendo Channel with system menu 4.0)

    Okay...so, I've heard a little from both sides now.

    Some say it's safe, others it's not... Which is it? I'm on SM v4.1 (Waninkoko's Updater)


    Thanks!

    Why wouldn't it be safe?

    When you install a channel inside the Wii Shop Channel, it merely installs the channel. There's no hidden IOS updating and whatnot.

    By the way, the new Nintendo Channel demands IOS55.

    Strange..after I got the update, made the Brawl disc go loud like it's scratching.

    Fudge, thank goodness I have a NAND backup.

    EDIT: Nevermind, it was how the Wii was standing.

    The new Channel is not the Nintendo Channel, there is a newer one, I tried installing but it failed with some Error code in the Wii shop [​IMG] Guess I'll get it through NUS and WAD Installer.

    That makes sense, but why wouldn't we have it?
    Why would someone remove it from their system??

    Titles don't care what the IOS version is. (i.e.- It doesn't matter if it's IOS55 v4633 or v5149, as long as it's IOS55.) Update screens may arise if there's a newer version though.
