    I have a lu63, 3.4u with hbc installed, just running neogamma for games. Never really gone online ever.

    Now someone at home got a netflix acct and wants me to 'enable' the wii to stream from them.

    Pls advise whats the easiest, safest way to do that?

    Also, how do i disable nintendo updates if i go online?

    Thanks.

    Go on a computer and order the disc is the easiest. If you have updates disabled for discs, then it's the safest too.

    Otherwise, you can use dop-mii to download ios 56 and the new shop channel, then download the netflix channel from the shop.

    If you go online, it will not update automatically. You can use Priiloader to disable both disc and online updates. You will obviously need to be online for netflix streaming.

    is priiloader what people are installing these days instead of preloader?

    ...would upgrading to 4.0+ give me the newer shop channel?...or is that separate? I'm just trying to find the easiest, most sensible way to do this

    To get the newest shop channel by outright update that would have to be 4.3 but I STRONGLY recommend against doing that until you know what you are doing (not a serious risk for most but why bother?) Just update your shop channel by itself (and the ios it uses ...56), and yes, priiloader is basically an updated preloader.

    Download NUSD from wiibrew

    Run it from your computer.

    download Shop Channel v20. Make sure the Pack to Wad Box is checked.

    Next download IOS 56 v5662. Pack to Wad should still be checked so just leave it as is.

    Now install the wads with Wad Manager. Install IOS56 then Shop Channel v20.

    You can now access the shop channel without it asking you for an update.

    Download the Free Netflix Channel from Ninty

    You will need to do what I said in my first post to use the shop channel. I would NOT recommend updating the entire system menu. There's a whole other thread on what is needed to update the shop and get netflix, but my first post says it all.... download dop-mii and install the latest shop channel and ios56 and then you will be able to download the netflix channel.

    Unless you want/need SDHC support/SD channels launching. If yes, update to 4.0/4.1/4.2 (it is easier to update to 4.2 following xxzero guide)
