    I believe Ver 2.1 had become corrupted on upload, causing one of the included apps to have the possibility of resulting in a brick. The archive was removed and the problem was rectified in 2.1.1, IIRC.

    Apparently the bricking issue only affected (effected?... w/e) 1 person, but they pulled the download just to be on the safe side. I have heard that if the install went successfully, there is no reason to update at this point.

    Please note however that this is all information that I have heard from IRC and may not be 100% accurate.

    That's odd. Archives both Rar and Zip usually indicate if there was an error upon extraction. Either way it wouldn't be a bad idea to ditch the old one and d/l the new one for people (like me) that keep the files around after installation.

    ?? Wasn't there an app out already that was called FSBrowser for browsing the NAND?

    Personally, I just fire up FTPii for that anyway.

    Yes but the programmer of FS-Browser is Raven.
    the programer(s) of SoftMii NAND Browser are softmii team

    & one more thing : there wasn't FS-Browser in the 2.0.1 of SoftMii Pack

    the programmer of FS-Brower is Raven, see : http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Fs_browser

    NAND-Browser integrated in SoftMii is very similar (if not sharing the same source)
    this is actually only used to backup your System Menu file before altering it
