    i currently have a softmodded wii (twilight hack) with version 4.0U... i was unsure about downloading new updates for fear of entire removal of homebrew.
    the 4.0 update i have, unfortunately, is through nintendo... which has caused me the inability of playing WAD files from the SD menu (also, if anyone knows how i can still play wads on the SD menu please let me know!!)

    ANYWAY, i was wondering if there is a safe way i can update to 4.3, without homebrew disappearing and without my wii possibly bricking.
    my reason is mostly because i have a few wiiware games that i bought from the shop channel (which i also deleted back in the day when we had to 'clean out the fridge')... so i can't get to the wii shop channel because it requires this update to 4.3.

    please help a n00b out!

    do you not think the sticky's should be larger and bolder so people can see them

    lol, yeah i meant 4.2 not 4.3, sorry for the confusion.
    i think i found what i needed, in the guide there was a link for "safely updating to wii 4.2", which updates without deleting homebrew. just what i was looking for. thanks!
