    This is the first time I connected my Wii to the internet, mostly so i can browse and buy games, strip the DRM w/ Wad Creator.

    I have a NTSC/US Wii with firmware 3.3u, softmodded with: Homebrew Channel, Wii Backup, GC Backup, cIOS36 rev9 and recently I installed the Pre Loader and Bootmii (boot 1).

    What is the risk in updating? It has to be bad, how do people get around this and safely shop online?

    I think using WiiSCU to update Shop Channel and IOS 61 will allow you to use shop channel without updating, but I haven't tried this (yet)

    DKangel what shop updates should I look for?

    There are 2 reasons to shop online:

    1. Not every game you want is available for free.

    2. To share games w/ everyone else. It's the ppl who don't contribute who hurt the scene.

    WiiSCU, like i said before. Update Shop Channel, IOS 61 and IOS 60 and you can access shop channel on any firmware version.

    I guess they're the same? Do I need to install PatchMii? Trying to figure out how to install this.

    nevermind I got it, WiiSCU is a dol file so should be straight forward via the HBC. Thanks.

    just so you know, wii shop and ios 51 updater is for updating the shop channel to the 3.4 version iirc. you need WiiSCU if you want the shop to work these days. wii shop and ios 51 updater is outdated. WiiSCU is based on that program, and it also updates more than just the shop channel if you tell it to.

    If you already have the HBC installed then there is very little to worry about with future updates. What you already have installed will be fine 99% of the time. I personally had 3.2E with HBC and have done disc updates and WiFi updates via Ninty and have had ZERO problems. I now have 4.0 with a fully softmodded Wii, both homebrew and pirate stuff works just fine.
