Start Wii shop without updating

Wii shop without updating

After setting this up, I you will be able to access the e Shop, but you should be able to play games online just fine.

Setting it up is easy, too: The same Letter Bomb trick that unlocked the Wii in 2011 still works today.

After that, it's as simple as loading a few apps onto a SD card and calling up the Homebrew Channel. Check out an application called Homebrew Browser (not to be confused with the aforementioned channel) -- it serves as a makeshift marketplace for the console, maintaining a downloadable list of popular games, apps and emulators.

Here are the URLs to block if you can: Note: Router URL Blocking will block all things Nintendo.

This means that if you have any kind of 3DS, it will not be able to preform updates either.

With little more than an SD card, the internet and some moxie, the old system can do, well, almost anything.

The homebrew community has created USB loaders, classic game emulators, cheat engines, DVD players and even Wii-specific Linux distributions.

This will work, however it requires that a computer always be on.
