If you are running the final Wii OS version 4.3, then you probably shouldn't have to worry about this.If you're running something earlier, though, you'll need to use the instructions below.The installation should be automatic from this point on, and your Wii will reboot.The DVD method requires a drivechip and won't work with the 3.3 firmware update or newer.In order to make an application appear in the Homebrew Channel, the following steps must be taken: Now the application will appear in the Homebrew Channel.Question: How Do I Update Wii Channels if I Have Homebrew Installed?To install either one, just extract the application files to your Wii SD card's "apps" folder (you can find more information on installing homebrew apps on the last page of my step-by-step Wii homebrew installation guide).With Wii SCU you will be shown a list of individual updates for your channels, plus some other updates.
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.
If you've installed the Homebrew Channel then a Wii System Update could brick your Wii (one update was specifically designed to do so, with the side effect of bricking non-homebrewed Wiis as well).
But sometimes system updates contain updates for individual channels, and in some cases, as with the Shopping Channel, you cannot use that channel without the update. Answer: First off, I'll remind everyone that Nintendo isn't updating the Wii anymore.
It can also happen if you have Wii Connect24 enabled, as this will automatically install any system updates released by Nintendo.
Updates 4.2 and 4.3 were both specifically designed to kill homebrew.
