    I was mainly wondering if Nintendo's statement about running opera through Hombrew means is legit. Will I ACTUALLY be wirelessly targeted for running Opera from my homebrew means?

    [​IMG] Sort it up, add commas, grammar and tell it again. It's ONE huge sentence...

    From what I understand you can't run it from Wii Menu because you need to update but you can run it from wad installer, but you own..wait...what?

    There are no risks to installing any software that has been released thus far.

    The Nintendo Channel has the option(READ: not mandatory) of recording and sending your play times to Nintendo, but even so, it's used to build statistics -- not catch pirates.


    With future updates, Nintendo might change the functionality of channels and check for ones you haven't purchased. However, judging by their online model, they aren't trying to delve very deep into being XBOX Live.

    I used the Wad Installer a couple of times. No problems whatsoever. I even installed the Opera Internet Channel.
