    I tried using the 4.2 Safe updater and it ran perfectly up until the part where it was install IOS15

    Gave me the error message of 1017.

    Can anyone help me and explain to me what I can do to update?

    Thanks

    check out modmii instead from my signature

    I'm not sure if the 4.2 updater causes bricks, but I know the 4.1 updater can brick you and is in the "apps that brick now" thread

    Does this work with Linux? or do you have a Linux version out?

    suit yourself, but this is currently the safest most recommended way to mod a wii. If there was really a virus in it there wouldn't be thousands of people using it

    Currently the only way to use it in linux is to use a virtual machine. Also, like Xflak said, the virus is a false positive. If there was a real virus, I am sure one of the hundreds of thousands of users would have said something... And more than 3 antivirus programs would pick something up.

    Wine work(ed) fine for me. But as XFlak said, some gets it to work, others not. I dont have linux anymore so I cant confirm the latest builds, nor can I check what version of Wine I used.


    And... ModMii a virus eh... What a load of bull.

    I'm just a little overly paranoid with these things. you know? I've had some bad stuff happened. A year ago I bricked my old school wii. Not fun

    Probably becuase you used some weird stuff (brick my wii, maybe?) instead of something tested like ModMii.....

    Simply use a virtual machine (I like "virtualbox") to run windows and create a snapshot before running modmii.
    Afterwards you simply revert to the snapshot and everything is gone virus or no virus.
