But I can't find it! UK only?<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd--> So far only in the UK/AU. Also, speaking of the demo. I know of a way to get the demo off of Nintendo Channel using some tools to decrypt the download list and then get the data. If anyone wants to have a go at it: 1.) Make sure you have a Homebrew enabled Wii with the latest Nintendo Channel in from the UK/AU region. Or basically have a homebrew enabled Wii that can have access to this demo from the Nintendo Channel. 2.) Dump the NAND of you Wii using WiiND (I think) 3.) Explore the contents of the NAND and find the wc24pubk.mod file under /title/00010001/484154xx/data (xx is hex region code. 45 is E, 4a is J, 50 is P) 3a.) I'm not sure about this one, but see if you can find wc24dl.vff anywhere under the Nintendo Channel directory somewhere. don't DOWNLOAD ANY OF THESE FILES FROM THE NET, DUMP YOUR OWN - these are more than likely for other things besides Nintendo Channel. 4.) Download <a href="http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Ninchdl-listext" target="_blank">Ninchdl-listext</a>, <a href="http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Wc24decrypt" target="_blank">Wc24decrypt</a>, and <a href="http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Binconv" target="_blank">Binconv</a> put them in one folder and find some way to keep both Readmes for referencing if you need it. 5.) Open Command Prompt and run "ninchdl-listext wc24dl.vff" (I hope you understand how CMD works), it should create two files either in the directory or the user directory: CSData.bin and decom.bin 6.) Open decom.bin in a Hex Editor and copy offsets 0xC to 0xF and use a calculator to turn this number into a 10 digit decimal. I'm not sure if this is what you do, but you have to convert 0xC to 0xF to a decimal number - that I know. I don't know how long it will be. 7.) Copy this url and put it in notepad: <a href="https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/248/49125/1h/entus.wapp.wii.com/4/VHFQ3VjDqKlZDIWAyCY0S38zIoGAoTEqvJjr8OVua0G8UwHqixKklOBAHVw9UaZmTHqOxqSaiDd5bjhSQS6hk6nkYJVdioanD5Lc8mOHkobUkblWf8KxczDUZwY84FIV/list/RR/ll/iiiiiiiii.LZ" target="_blank">https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/248/49125/1h/en...ll/iiiiiiiii.LZ</a> 7a.) In notepad, change the "entus" part of the url to match the region of your Nintendo Channel. <b>I don't know what you change it for EU/AU though, so someone has to find it out.</b> 7b.) In notepad, change the /RR/ll/ part of the url to match the Region and the Language (in this case, Australia would be /AU/en/, and Great Britain would be /GB/en). This I know for sure. 7c.) in notepad, replace the iiiiiiiii part of iiiiiiiii.LZ with the decimal number you just made in step 6. 8.) Open the URL in your web browser, and it should download a .LZ file. Put this file in the same directory as the other programs you downloaded in the previous steps. 9.) In Command Prompt again (CMD), type "ninchdl-listext #.LZ" (#.LZ being the file you just downloaded from Nintendo's servers) and it should generate a file called dumpu.txt. Now you have a list of all the URLs for the data that can be downloaded (videos, demos, etc) within the Nintendo Channel! 10.) Now in this step, you're on your own because I don't know how Nintendo names these files, but it's very simple. Go find the Sonic Colors DS demo in the the long list of URLs in the dumpu.txt file. Keep in mind, you're looking for a .bin file. 11.) Copy the URL of the suspected demo and download it with your web browser. Save the file in the same directory with all the other programs that you downloaded from the other steps. 12.) in Command Prompt yet again (CMD), type "binconv xxxxx.bin" (xxxxx.bin being the demo data for Sonic Colors) and it should finally create a .NDS for you! Then there you go, you should have a working rom of the demo. I noticed while writing this that Wc24decrypt.exe isn't used anywhere. It does have a use though, if this guide didn't help - but I'm not sure what to explain. Get it anyway and read up the documentation on it in case you get lost. More details about how the Nintendo Channel works can be read at <a href="http://code.google.com/p/wmb-asm/wiki/NintendoChannel" target="_blank">http://code.google.com/p/wmb-asm/wiki/NintendoChannel</a> Good luck! EDIT: Another way of retrieving the data is to use WireShark or some other packet sniffing tool to catch the packets while the Wii downloads or transfers the demo over to the DS. If it works, it should be sending the .bin file of the demo over the Internet. So this might be an easier way to get the demo. Then once you assembled enough data, you can use binconv to convert the .bin file to a .nds file. I don't know if it'll work, but it's worth a shot. Also, if I made a mistake - don't be an ass, because I seriously came up with this guide by using research a lone. I didn't try this for myself, so there's obviously going to be problems (like step 7a).
