—the Wii Shop Channel marked a milestone moment for Nintendo, as the company made its first notable foray into digital game distribution.
Considering the age of the Wii, and the fact that all other online services for the console have been disabled, it was only a matter of time before Nintendo would announce the end of the Wii Shop Channel, and now that day has finally come.
Each of the following Channels is built into the Wii hardware, and so all Wii users have access to their diverse features. Note: The Forecast Channel, News Channel, and Wii Shop Channel require an Internet connection to function, as well as the latest Wii Menu firmware (currently 4.3).
The only Channel that cannot be positioned wherever the user likes, the Disk Channel allows users to play Wii disk-based titles and Nintendo Game Cube software that is inserted into the Wii console's front-loading disk drive.
This is very quick - all you really have to do is find the right update in the Shopping section of your Wii.
Instead use dop-IOS MOD to re-install IOS60 (if you are on Wii Firmware 4.0 or 4.1) or IOS70 (if you are on Wii Firmware 4.2) with the signature hash check (trucha bug).
Also, if you are using Preloader and you "dop" IOS60 or IOS70, remember to reinstall Preloader after "doping"; otherwise, you won't be able to load the System Menu.
With the exception of the Disk Channel, all Wii Channels on Wii systems with Wii Menu firmware 2.0 and beyond can be moved by grabbing a Channel icon (by pressing the A and B buttons together simultaneously), moving the icon over an open Channel slot, and releasing the buttons.
By updating the Wii console's firmware, connecting one's Wii to the Internet, and downloading additional Channels/software and updates, one can gain access to new Channels and features, all of which are selectable from the Wii Channel Menu. However, when the user enter the settings option located on the bottom left corner, or enter the SD Card Menu, the background will change black.
No company is particularly happy about piracy of their software, and that is doubly true when it comes to consoles.
