    I have a WiiKey v1 and am on 3.2E with Starfall 0.5 installed. Is it safe for me to have WiiConnect24 turned on so i can use the Weather, Shop and News channels, or will this cause my Wii to get updated to the latest FW with out me knowing or confiming to do so???

    Completely safe
    Just don't allow the 'nintendo channel' to share data (if you have that channel)

    the nintendo channel is a fucking huge waste of space (literally). takes up about 1600 blocks and is merely a video they ship their current units with. it demonstrates how to play it, download etc.

    Nope its not the shop channel
    Its a channel (that is found for download In the shop) with short movies and info about games
    and it has some ds download games

    you can also rate games and more, but that requires the data sharing function

    Yeah its safe. However, i heard that people with 3.4 (like me) can get automatically updated. Anyone else hear this? I read this on a wiibrew forum post

    It may be safe for updates but it is not healthy for your GPU. It will overheat with the Wii in standby.

    Install Preloader. It can do something cool. You can keep standby internet on, so the channels will work. But when you turn off the wii, if will actually be turned off and not go into standby mode.

    Standby connection is a waste of power yeah! I'd suggest wiiconnect24 on / standby connection off.
