    My Wii is on version 4.3, and with the recent announcement of the Kirby TV Channel (And the lack of Right Back At Ya rips on the internet) I was wondering if it's safe to connect to the Shop Channel with the HBC and hacked IOS's.

    Yes, I'm still noob when it comes to Wii soft-modding.

    Are you 100% sure?
    If it was safe, there wouldn't be apps for installing channels once you've hacked your Wii

    Your logic is flawed. Apps used for installing channels, such as a WAD manager, are often times used for installing custom channels, pirated channels, and etc.

    Block updates with Priiloader. If you already have them blocked, then use ModMii to update your Shopping Channel. It should work fine then.

    It is likely you missed something since no one else with the up-to-date files seems to be experiencing this problem. Did you try using ModMii to install the latest versions of your IOS files and the latest Wii Shop Channel? It is very easy to install the wrong version of something. [​IMG]

    Installed PriiLoader, and installed Shop Channel again, both from ModMii and now I have Kirby TV Channel.

    Channel 2 only available until Monday and one of the eps not available in English

    Go into Priiloader, System Menu Hacks, enable "Block Disc Updates" and "Block Online Updates", then hit Save.

    Hi, i am on 4.1e. Do i need to update the wii? Everything works fine, but i would like to have all the channels... Like the Kirby +Channel, i also have lots of Wii points on my system, so the shop channel would be great. I have priiloader, but i have no idee if i got the ModMii... Is there any way to check this?

    Modmii is a computer program to help mod your wii
    run modmii wizard to remod your wii, and this will update everything to reccomended versions
