Note: If a channel is not marked as RF, StartPatch or Preloader with hacks is required to run the out of region channels on your wii.  

 

Channels marked "Discontinued" have stopped working and are no longer useful in any meaningful capacity. Some of these channels provided limited-time content for upcoming games, TV specials, or similar offerings. Many others, such as Weather, News, and the Check Mii Out and Everybody Votes channels were discontinued June 27, 2013 as part of a phase-out of WiiConnect24.

If channels give a black screen when run, ensure that the required IOS is installed.

Thanks for the info guys. So in the end...you need a JAP wii, either original or completely region changed. Maybe I'll write a page up for this if I get the time thisn weekend.

What Joseph said worked. I Installed Menu v480. After Installed Jap EULA v2 and Region Select v2. Now Wii no Ma works :D

MarlonHax said

at 7:55 pm on Jul 8, 2010

Would it be possible to get things like The Movies you can buy on Wii no Ma for free?

techboy said

at 8:41 pm on Jul 8, 2010

If they are saved as a title on the wii, they can be dumped. If they are streaming video, then no, they likely not.

MarlonHax said

at 11:47 pm on Jul 8, 2010

They are bought from the Wii Store

techboy said

at 1:36 pm on Jul 9, 2010

I don't think you can based on a quick google :( If there were a way to dump these, I'm sure we'd have a section of WADs for them by now.

If you use Wii no Ma wad from NUSD with _wwpacker-RegionFree, it will work on NTSC-U Wii without any other Japanese installations.

paulb said

at 8:01 pm on Jul 11, 2010

@cocomonk22
But can you still use the service?
ie downloads etc
I'm pretty sure this has been tried before, but if it work that's good info

cocomonk22 said

Videos work and Miis arrive fine.

Has anyone gotten Minna Nintendo Channel to work on non-J region Wiis? The closest I have gotten is to a 177404 error following the 協力します/協力しません section, which is just a 404.

cocomonk22 said

at 10:14 pm on Jul 11, 2010

I've taken a look at why Minna no Nintendo Channel returns a 177404:

On a Japanese Wii, the data is loaded from http://entj.wapp.wii.com/4/JP/ja/csdata.LZ
On a US Wii, the data is loaded from http://entj.wapp.wii.com/4/US/en/csdata.LZ

Since this is the Japanese server, US/en does not exist, so the channel must be tricked somehow to load from /4/JP/ja/csdata.LZ

cocomonk22 said

at 1:56 am on Jul 12, 2010

I modified the Minna no Nintendo Channel to go to the JP/ja/csdata.LZ, but it fails to get http://entj.wapp.wii.com/4/JP/ja/message1 and http://entj.wapp.wii.com/4/JP/ja/message2

This was done by changing the US to JP and the en to ja, but it looks like csdata.LZ may contain data from multiple regions, so it is still sending the incorrect US data which is causing error 262000. It looks like the values of the region being sent to the channel needs to be faked as coming from a Japanese system.

Wii no ma doesn't work for me :|
I'm 4.2J softmoded and console itself is Japan Wii

techboy said

at 11:17 am on Jul 13, 2010

Did you region change the console at one point? If you did, make sure you completely RC'd it back to Japan with something like ARC.

If that's not the case, verify that IOS31, IOS56, a Japan EULA, and a Japan Region Select are installed.

on the wii speak channel if your banned from wifi what bypass codes do you need to be able to use it

techboy said

at 12:05 am on Jul 19, 2010

Last I checked you can't be banned from WiiSpeak...

What error are you getting?

Earl said

at 11:42 am on Jul 19, 2010

20102

techboy said

at 12:06 pm on Jul 19, 2010

I'll be damned...you're banned from WiiSpeak.

There is a universal unban code for ocarina floating around the net. You can try applying that ocarina code using Gecko OS 1.9 or newer (it has a channel launcher), but I've had limited success with ocarina on channels.

There's also a file on your wii you can hack to change your identifier and unban the console, but I don't have the details on it ATM.

Earl said

at 8:24 pm on Jul 19, 2010

yeah i tried the universal unban no luck i mean you mainly only use wii speak for games but u should just want the channel to be able to work ya know

paulb said

at 9:00 pm on Jul 19, 2010

I had a bit of a google and all I can come up with
is it's an issue from 2009 that could possibly be
bypassed by changing your IP or mac address

I wish I could help,...sorry
Good luck with that and if you do manage to fix it let us know Earl

techboy said

at 9:14 pm on Jul 19, 2010

I can't seem to find the topic about the file editing unban. It was in a topic on GBATemp somewhere, but searching hasn't revealed much.

Only thing I can find is an unban for MH Tri that involved changing your Wii's ID number with the pinkfish disc.

techboy said

at 4:47 pm on Oct 18, 2010

Netflix Channel added.

Earl said

at 5:05 pm on Oct 27, 2010

just to let you know for this the only solution is to call nintendo and be unbanned so another way would need to be created to do it manually

techboy said

at 11:34 pm on Oct 27, 2010

Are you aware that the last post regarding the ban was in July?

Also, there is a way to unban without calling Nintendo, but it means using Comex's NAND formatter, which deletes everything and carries a good chance of bricking your wii.

Earl said

at 6:26 pm on Oct 28, 2010

yes i've just been "away"

joseph said

Can someone get a Gecko OS Wad. Preferabally the one that can run games off the wii menu (even if there a Different region and there/you wii isnt RF)

Here: http://www.mediafire.com/?ym5mwzjgn1i I think it's RegionFree

joseph said

thanks for your help but the channel bricks after i start it. i have 4.3u so i think thats why.

joseph said

at 9:01 pm on Feb 18, 2011

wad manager 1.3 is on here? im on wii 4.3 and i use wad manager 1.7

paulb said

at 1:29 am on Feb 19, 2011

If you look you will see it is actually a channel, not the .wad itself.
This is the channels page not homebrew and hasn't been updated in 4 months.

Apart from that, there isn't much difference between v1.3 & 1,7 anyway, they both install .wad's

RAVMN said

at 2:27 pm on Jul 28, 2011

Can someone upload "Nintendo Channel 2.0 v1792" please? I can't get it working... xD

could someone be so kind as to add the Kirby TV Channel on here, possibly region-free as well?
that would me mostly appreciated.

Smashbro619 said

at 9:52 am on Dec 15, 2011

still waiting for someone to upload a .wad of the Kirby Wii channel...
what's taking so long? :(

techboy said

at 2:21 pm on Dec 17, 2011

Nobody made a dump of it since it's not a high-demand title. We can't post what doesn't exist.

Also, several news posts about Kirby TV state that it ended on Thursday (Dec 15) anyway, so if we do get a dump, it's likely useless. :(

joseph said
