    I seen that thread and noticed something, it talks about copyrighted software, but Opera is free software.

    Nintendo are criminals for charging for free software, the NDS one was understandable since the cartridge costs money.

    Also the thread says to use Google, but funny thing is that's how I found the thread, we need to stop this lopp of having threads telling people to google come up on google.

    What license.

    I cannot connect to the Wii shop because it wants me to use WiiConnect 24, I am told not to use that or I'll lose my mods.

    no you won't. Turn it on. When the day comes for Ninty to upgrade the system again, it will ASK you to upgrade... you can choose not to.

    HiBit.. no disrespect, but your avatar really freaks me out [​IMG]

    I still feel etchy about doing anything until I know more...

    I haven't upgraded anything since I got it and modded it.

    Oh yeah does Youtube work on it? On my brother PS3 he can watch youtube on his TV and that's cool, I wanna do that on mine. Also allsp.com has southpark, would that site work?

    You won't lose anything while turning on WiiConnect24
    It just enables wifi 24/7

    what? I've heard that if your Wii isn't updated to the latest firmware it will automatically update when you shut it off emitting a blue light on the power button.

    It's cool it works but if I goto a page like this with videos embedded it doens't work:

    Right Behind You! Uh Oh!
    first of all people who did pay for the browser are getting there wiipoints back (400 points or a nes title)

    Second of all the reason MANY videos do not play is because of ADOBE FLASH PLAYER COPYRIGHTS not nintendo...While each console from the PS3 to the wii to even Dreamcast had different web browsing w/ different software rights its hard to compare them other than to say that ALL OF THESE HAVCE POOR FLASH SUPPORT and often NO java support at all [​IMG] see think of these as a "poor browser" most support up to flash 7 and now the wii can run LIMITED flash 8 but lacks the resources to ever be as decent as firefox for example [​IMG]

    About wiiconect24 : someone lied to you bud ive been playing with it on since day one and ran every damn app i can get my hands on [​IMG] it wont disable anything the only way that they can overwrite your modded trucha ios is if you the enduser allows that [​IMG]

    Here
    People don't pay for the browser anymore. And the few people that did get their points back or a NES game.

    The reason they likely charged for it to begin with was likely to cover the cost of paying Opera to port the browser to the Wii.

    And there is nothing criminalizing about selling free software. Linux, for example, is allowed to be sold provided you follow certain guidelines.

    Nothing criminalizing, but morally wrong...

    I read you can't sell Linux. You are allowed to sell hardware running Linux and support, but that's it.
