Updating a wii
The Homebrew Channel is a self-updating homebrew application loader by Team Twiizers which allows users to load homebrew applications without having to run an exploit every time.Once installed, users can access the channel from the Wii System Menu just like any other Wii channel.You only need to purchase a few things to do this, things you may already have.An SD card is the same as the thin small chip that is used inside of a digital camera.Some of these are specific to certain versions of the System Menu, while others are not but require you to own a certain Wii game in order to use them.The installation should be automatic from this point on, and your Wii will reboot.Unlike past systems like the Xbox or PS2, modding a Wii doesn't require any physical tinkering and costs way less than one would think.
(Soft-modding is what we've been talking about, meaning we aren't modifying any hardware, just letting the software hack files do it all.) Keep in mind the soft modding methods out there will void your warranty with Nintendo and that if you send in your Wii for repair, Nintendo can and will replace anything not up to date. A 100 HD can store many backups and files and can easily be loaded and removed.So you could technically store Wii files and computer files onto them. You have a bunch of programs you want to test on your Wii.Before you jump for joy, look up that Wii's model number and update version. They basically are being nice and saying, 'stop tinkering with our system'.The DVD method requires a drivechip and won't work with the 3.3 firmware update or newer.DVD images for the more recent versions are currently unavailable, though you can install beta8 and then update.
