    If you have Priiloader blocking updates, just use ModMii to download and install the latest version of the Nintendo Shopping Channel, then download the Nintendo Channel from there. If you don't have Priiloader, use ModMii to properly softmod your Wii. Updating to 4.3 is a bad idea.

    Why are you ignoring me? You will still need Priiloader to block System Menu updates when this is done. It's not optional. That's why I keep asking you.

    I gotta agree with Joostin here. Sure, installing the wads with a wad installer such as yawm is what you need to do. But this is like using a trapeze without a safety net: it only goes well as long as you know what you're doing.

    ...and I can show you dozens of links of people who accidentally updated their wii and found themselves unable to rehack their wii because they didn't took the precautions to avoid the wii to update in the first place (this is what priiloader does).

    Also, loading the Nintendo Channel will still check his System Menu version, so he will still be prompted to update. I asked if he had Priiloader because, if he doesn't, it's possible the Nintendo Channel isn't even out of date.

    He could also for example use startpatch to hack the system menu [​IMG]

    Where is the nintendo channel located in ModMii? Since the last update I have been looking for a way to install this and can't seem to find it.

    Why would he do that? startpatch is old, outdated, and does not give you the brick protection that priiloader does. Nobody that knows better uses that app anymore.

    I thought it was there, but I can't find it either. I don't know how the OP got it. It might not have a ticket on NUS.

    What I should have suggested from the beginning (and I'm going to edit my posts so people don't get confused in the future) is to update the Shopping Channel, block updates with Priiloader, and then download the Nintendo Channel from there. Sorry for the slip-up, I haven't been feeling 100% for the past few days (pretty sure it's just a cold though), but I should have checked ModMii first. Sorry for the mistake.
