Updating a softmodded wii to get netflix?

My wii is softmodded and im wondering if there is an easy way to get it to do netflix? I dont really use the softmodded part of the unit so ill do better just reverting. Do i just update? Id rather avoid a full whipe.

That's the forum you want to be posting this question to, there are guides on how to revert your softmodded wii back to stock. I did it before sending my wii in for repair and it worked nicely, but that was a couple years ago. I would use the guides on that site, I find them the best.

Do you have Google Talk or MSN or anything like that? PM me the info if you want and I can try to help you as I just did this somewhat recently myself.

if you go to wiihacks.com there is a thread over there about Black Ops. Within this thread, there is a tip on how to upgrade your market without reverting back. some file you download and install within your SD card.

EDIT: found the link
updating the shop channel

It's also fascinating how 2 kids from different parents looked identical and both played the role of baby michelle on full house and now 20 some years later, they still look identical.

hmmm other people were saying if your wii is modded, its not a good idea to upgrade through the wii system (offline update is reccomended)

all wii's can use netflix, softmodded or not, it does not matter, you just need to update the shop channel on the wii, there are lots of site's with detailed instructions to safely update the shop channel if you are soft modded, its really quite simple, probly take less than 5 mins, just look through your channels and see if you have the homebrew channel, if you do good, in the homebrew channel there is a wad manager, the wad manager will install the SHOP channel update, look through couple sites, , or even the one mentioned earlier in this thread WiiHacks, great source, there will be full tuturials on it there, and the proper files to use with wad manager.

so to sum it all up and get Netflix on softmodded wii Just,
1 - Update shop channel with wad manger
2 - run shop channel
3 - install netflix channel, its free.

netflix channel is free, but you will still need a netflix account to watch the movies.
once you have the netflix accoun you can login using username and password, and watch netflix on 6 diffrent devices , Wii, XBox 360, PS3, IPhone, PC. and can be used at all same time even in diffrent locations Etc. Home, work, gym, strip club , .... :) ..
