OK, there have recently been LOADS of people asking how to use the shop channel without updating, so I thought I'd write a quick tutorial, despite it being very easy. 1. Download WiiSCU here 2. Extract and place in "apps" on sd card 3. Put SD card in Wii and launch Homebrew Channel 4. Load WiiSCU 5. Select to update Shop Channel, IOS 61 and IOS 60 6. (Optional) Select +trucha to patch trucha bug back into the IOSs 7. Exit the app 8. Done You should now be able to access the Shop Channel on any firmware. Mods, please sticky this to stop people asking same question again and again.
