    Nintendo released an update to nintendo channel, internet and others on dec 14, I'm wondering if it is safe to run this update with homebrew.

    Check WiiBrew.org. They always say whether or not the new updates are bad.

    If you update it will update those channels and any ios files you have that nintendo has newer versions of.

    So it will install all stub ios files in place of any cios you currently have.

    I'm still curious what "will make it easier for future users to download this channel" means. How can they actually make it any easier? You just click on them and choose download...

    Be sure you have shop v18 installed then download them via the shop again.

    heh... not if you have the version numbers maxed out (cIOSCORP) [​IMG]

    I'm willing to test *almost* anything now. I have a Wiikey2 now on top of bootmii in boot2. [​IMG]

    I wouldn't, unless you have bootmii as boot2 and an infectus.
    After you've installed cioscorp, you run the risk that Nintendo add a function to the system menu IOS that won't exist in your version.

    Not updating your IOS, will mean you aren't really testing anything.

    I didn't say I Wouldn't update my IOS. I said I Was willing to test almost anything, and I commented -seperately- that if your version numbers were maxed out that the Nintendo updates couldn't touch it.

    Basically I'm saying if you are using the latest cIOSCORP and you are happy with it, you can run the system update from any same-region disc and/or through the official system update and cIOSCORP will not be affected. It will only update your system channels [​IMG]

    Then again that might not be 100% true because after rolling back a few things to test with official IOSs with my Wiikey, and installing cIOSCORP afterwards when I was done, NSMB showed the update in the disc channel (of course at this point I had the update blocker disabled in priiloader). So I ran the update from the disc, and it didn't show up again, but it didn't actually change any IOS...

    So what actually told it that an update was needed and what was changed so that it doesn't think it needs one now?? Again no IOSs were touched when the disc update ran.
