    A short while ago, I had made a topic on here asking about how to update the Wii Shop Channel on my hacked Wii because I needed the Skyward Sword fix. I was recommended a program to use to download just the Wii Shop update and install it specifically. (My computer with all my files broke and I don't have it anymore)

    Since then, I have already downloaded and installed what's supposed to be the newest version of the Wii Shop Channel through that program. I haven't actually gone on there since then, though. Now, I want to download the YouTube Channel so we can watch videos on our big screen TV. However, upon trying to go on the Wii Shop Channel to download it, I'm told that the channel is still out of date and it wants to perform a System Update. I exited out of that without doing so.

    Will this System Update brick my family's Wii? I just used BootMii to make a backup, just to be on the safe side, but I want to double-check before doing anything. I don't need my entire family pissed off at me because I broke it. (Also, if somebody could remind me what that program I had needed the first time was, it would be appreciated)

    If the System Update is not something I want to do, how do I update just the Wii Shop Channel? Apparently, the first thing I tried didn't work.

    Use Wii Mod to update only Wii Shop without sys update.
    Official update will kill your softmod, or even brick.
