Wii: Hack to View Wii Shop

Posted November 22, 2006 by MickeyMouse in Nintendo Wii

The wii uses an internal internet browser to communicate through the internet. By emulating this browser, you can view the wii shop from your browser.


Hats off to this guy. I wanted to do the exact same thing but still have not been able to get my hands on a wii yet.

The wii uses a browser to communicate. By emulating this browser with firefox, you can surf the wii shop.

1. Open Firefox
2. Install the User Agent Switcher

The previous tech-recipes on the use of this tool is also killer.

3. Click Tools
4. Click User Agent Switcher
5. Click Options -> Options
6. Click User Agents
7. Click Add
8. Description: wii
9. User Agent: Opera/9.00 (Nintendo Wii; U; ; 1038-58; Wii Shop Channel/1.0; en)
10. Click OK X 2
11. Click Tools again
12. Select User Agent Switcher
13. Select wii

14. Copy and paste one of these links into firefox and visit it:
