Can you still softmod your Wii after the 9/7 update?

    Just curious, although I've already softmodded my console. If you updated to the 9/7 update and your Wii is still virgin, is it possible to softmod it? Still trying to figure out the exact purpose of the update, other than installing the Korean IOS's, therefore making us unable to TBR 41.

    Also, if I used the official update to update my Wii (already on 4.3) to the 9/7 release, would all my homebrew be gone and unable to be softmodded again?

    Thanks!

    You should be able to install the homebrew channel with smash stack or indiana jones pwns and use the new HW_AHBPROT feature to install ios236. With IOS236 you can softmod your wii, but I'm not sure if the ios236 installer works with the new 9/7 IOSes.

    I haven't tested it out personally yet, but I can't see why IOS236 Installer would stop working because of this update. I'm pretty sure it just officially killed Trucha Bug Restorer, i imagine that the IOS236 installer and all other ahbprot apps should still work fine

    If you have HBC 1.08 installed before you update then IOS236 installer, hermes v4 and CIOSX r20 install without a hitch.
    I'd imagine that installing HBC using indiana pwnz/smash stack works too, but I haven't tried that.
