There are two levels of wrong that are happening.

The first level of wrong is piracy.  People can use the Homebrew Channel to download games from the Internet without buying them.  There are many subtleties to the piracy argument, but most people agree that downloading games is bad.

The second level of wrong is "running unsigned code".  That is, when someone wants to write a game for the Wii, they have to go to Nintendo and pay them some money for a digital signature that the publisher can then use to sign the game, allowing it to run.  This ensures that the only things running on the Wii are what Nintendo wants running on it.  Ostensibly, this is to protect against piracy, but from Nintendo's standpoint if you run Homebrew and don't buy any games, you're as important as a pirate to them because they aren't getting any more of your money.

Most people tend not to agree with that, considering that they paid money to buy hardware, and they ought to be able to do what they want as long as they aren't stealing games.

I'm not sure if it has been mentioned yet but to get the updated shop channel go here:

http://wiibrew.org/wiki/WiiSCU

And go down to "Which version should I get?" and download the v0.24 version and update it to v19.

I'm sure most people already know this but I figured I'd mention it in case it hasn't already been said and there are people trying to figure out how to get an updated shop channel.

Good to see they are working on a new Hackmii installer hopefully they will find a way for the super stack thing to work on a pal wii.  The main reason why i love the Homebrew channel is for the cheats and region free.  Me living in Australia this is fantastic we usually get games last in our region

First, you would need to have [...]
Anyway, until a new version of the HackMii Installer is released, this is the only way for someone who updated to 4.3 through Nintendo, and no longer has the Homebrew Channel.

Works like a charm Smiley Had to find Ocarina cause I remembered it had a GCT program but now I'm able to use cheats again. Kinda was spectacle though... Wondered how i was going to load another game other than Brawl with cheats since the dvd had to be in the Wii for this to work. But I guess Gecko Gets loaded from the SD card and doesn't need to have the dvd in the wii for it to work lol

You can connect to the internet, you just can't use the shop channel at the moment. (they updated the shop channel again.) I think you'll need the wiiSCU. (i'm not sure if they updated wiiSCU to the latest version yet) use wiiSCU at your own risk as wiibrew says. but do not update via nintendo. ever.
But then i can't play new games right?

Gecko OS will check to see if your game requires a new IOS and it will safely install that IOS for you, without doing the full Nintendo update.

The latest version of GeckoOS has Ocarina support, and is more up to date than the Ocarina application.  By default, you can just start the game through GeckoOS, and the cheat codes that you selected for that game will be applied.  GeckoOS should still work with discs on the 4.3 System Menu.  The only thing that will be broken is channel cheats, since your IOS36 will have been updated.

Also, yes, once the homebrew application has been loaded with either the Smash Stack or Indiana Pwns, then the disc can be ejected from the console.  When you want to run a different game through GeckoOS, just insert the disc of the game that you want to run, or in the case of Super Smash Brothers Brawl and LEGO Indiana Jones, you may have to reinsert the disc, depending on which exploit you used.

All games need a specific IOS.  The latest version of GeckoOS will install only the IOS that is needed by that game, and nothing else.  You could also try to boot the game through GeckoOS 1.07b, and see if you can bypass all updates on the disc.  I am on 3.0U, and for New Super Mario Brothers Wii and Wii Sports Resort, I still had to install the IOS versions that they wanted.  However, for both Mario Kart Wii and Super Smash Brothers Brawl, I did not have to install IOS36.  Therefore, I'm guessing that you will need to install the proper IOS for newer games.

The Shop Channel can also be updated to the latest version, without updating the System Menu.

lol now that i have homebrew channel, when I see the update thing I think this XP

*You've got mail*
Nintendo: Due to illegal operations and software exploits we've updated our firmware that does not benefet you and just stops the annoying hackers from supposidly ruining our games.


Nintendo just give up, hackers are presistant and clever little asses you won't ever be able to stop.  Evil Besides, they should only be erasing shit like dvd players and stuff. Gecko OS more or less is basically just Action Replay isn't it? Maybe somebody should just liscenes it, pattent it and then charge money for it and call it the new action replay. Cause nintendo didn't give shit about action replay at all....

Cheesy Yeah seriously Nintendo! They have no idea do they, they'll never give up. And I'm suprised Action Replay hasn't thought of such a thing like this. XP
