    Hi everyone, im sorry if this question has been asked before but i used the search function and nothing came up. I have a soft and hard modded wii pal. have not really used it since last year on 4.2u. Today I wanted to go to the wii shop but said I had to perform a system update. Is this update safe for modded devices? Many thanks in advance

    :face palm:

    Is it really quicker to say "nothing came up" than to actually search!?

    You fail HARD.

    I typed system update into the search for the wii section had hundreds of hits all highlighting the word system nothing with system update. Can you please point me in the right direction

    Assuming you have CIOS or exploited IOS, you could use Dop-Mii to just update the Shopping Channel by itself.

    If you update using the wiis update feature, it'll try to remove stuff, cios, older homebrew channel. Just use Dop-Mii, and update just the shopping channel, see if it works. There's always a chance to brick when you do stuff like this, but it's very low.

    No one's gonna be able to give you a completely comprehensive answer in a way that'll allow you to not have to "re learn" everything since not everyone's Wii is set up the same way. You're just gonna have to figure out some stuff out on your own.

    u should also update IOS61 to get the shopping channel working (in addition to the shopping channel itself)
