Dont know if this has already been mentioned, cant see it but thought you'd all like to know about the 'bannerbomber' method of getting the homebrew channel on your wii, its easy.

You can also downgrade to any other firmware using the method in this video

Tried it myself today so I could get scumm going on my wii, downgraded from 4.0 to 3.3

cool - thanks - I'll have a look at the vid then, have some rep :)

who mentioned piracy?
#7
What this this mean though :oops: , that you can download games from the internet?
#8
if you're naughty then yes, you can also use it to play homebrew games, ie older games converted to wii by people or games made people at home as well as other applications such as getting your wii to play dvd films etc.

Not sure why you'd get a Wii just because this method came out?

If you buy a wii, and it has factory installed 4.0 firmware, this method is supposed not to work, it's for people who have done a system update to 4.0 from a lower firmware.

no this is for the new wii that come with version 4.0 installed, my wii is a new one with 4.0 firmware, never modded before and this method worked on it.

Okay, so you have purchased a brand new Wii with factory installed 4.0 on it?
The forums that I have read, say that it shouldn't work.

That's good if it does. :thumbsup:

yes mine has the factory installed 4.0 firmware, this bannerbomb softmod is meant for the factory installed 4.0 firmware so there's no need for downgrading or upgrading anything.

Thanks for the info, I know someone that is wanting to get a brand new Wii, but was worried about 4.0.
Will let them know the news.

Because you can mod it... For freeeeeee :lol: I wouldn't buy a new one anyway as they're a bit crap and overpriced, but the wife thinks they're 'fun'. I'm happy with my original xbox :)

Okay. The old way would only have a nett cost of a pound or two anyway.

The new way is actually a lot more involved than the Zelda way, so I still use Zelda.

Still use Zelda? Are you running some sort of mod business to go with all the NDS and memory card stuff?
