    Can't you just go to the Shop Channel and upgrade those without upgrading to 4.2? Also I thought iPlayer didn't work outside of UK due to licensing?

    If the shop channel wants you to update, just get DOP IOS Mod v9 and update the shop channel in there.

    And the Shop-Channel IOS, or it still won't work. Or even better: Update all your IOS/Channels with DOP-IOS MOD, and only skip the Systemmenu (or update it 4.1). The safest way to be Up-to-Date.*

    *Bricking may occur. Have BootMii as bootv2. I don't take any responsibility.

    Updating the system menu wad will change his firmware 'officially' to 4.2E and should prevent further warnings/notices until the next firmware comes out. If you're gonna update IOS's/Shop/Channels you may as well go the whole hog.

    why upgrade to 4.2 when you can access the wii shop channel from 4.1?

    an alternative to dop-ios mod is pimp my wii which will update any outdated or missing IOSes (including wii shop channel) and add the trucha bug

    Eh? I can access the shopping channel ???

    But when I go on it it says that I need to update... and then has a big button that says update?! So I figured that wasnt the right option for me!

    That´s why you use DOP-IOS Mod (as already said) or another similar tool to update ONLY the Shop Channel [​IMG]

    I just got the shopping channel .wad from NUS Downloader then installed it with wad manager, simple

    and as a side note. The BBC Iplayer is great feature, perfect for watching Top Gear [​IMG]

    That message appears only when your shop version is not equal to the newest version. The shop normally comes as part of a normal update. Since you don't want the full 4.2 update, you need to install the newest version of the channel manually.

    Do what the above posters said: Run DOP-IOS MOD v9 or Pimp My Wii, and use it to update the shop. The update message will stop appearing after you update the shop channel.
