    Right now, I have a hacked Wii, with system menu 4.2. I need to update my system software so I can play the new Zelda game.
    Problem is, my system is hacked. -_-
    I can use Letterbomb, when I update to 4.3, I know that, but what I need to know, is how do I update the safest way possible? What should I do? Should I format my Wii system memory, or what?
    Please help me. :|

    You don't need to update your system menu. I'm Playing Skyward Sword on 4.1 System menu. Just use modmii to rehack your wii. It will download the newest cIOS and loaders for you to play skyward sword. There's a link to Modmii in my signature.

    Just install Priiloader and block updates.

    It's kind of weird, but I kind of just WANT to update to 4.3. It doesn't do anything, but I just want it done. Why? No clue.
    Any options for me?

    It does do something, it limits what you can run on your Wii. If you want to screw yourself over for the sake of the latest System Menu, it's your choice.

    I just saw this thread!
    It is easy.
    1) Check whether you are running HBC using IOS 58 (it should show on the top right corner when you go into HBC)
    a) If not update IOS 58 (wiibrew has the link) then use hackmii installer again so that HBC will use IOS 58
    2) Goto preloader (or priiloader) unblock network update (if you set it like that)
    3) Then do a system update through Wii setting (official one)
    4) It will be downloaded and will be updated to 4.3 and you will still have HBC

    Caution: I did this with three wii's it did not get bricked, but some claims there is a bricking possibility.

    No region free for modchips, no bannerbomb 1, no bannerbomb 2, bricks region changed Korean Wii's, no DVDX (useless to most people though), and so on. If you want to find everything just do a search yourself.

    I don't see any of them as important and I personally like not having to use custom CIOS, other than the 3-4 necessary ones to run backups, updating shopping channel etc to keep

    Update your Wii!
    Who would you believe?
    The people who created home brew or people who are trying to scare you?

    The OP wanted to update, so my answer stands. Instead of listening to people here spend some time reading wiibrew!

    Kind or related, I also have a 4.2 and 4.1?. Does something like ModMii update everything to 4.3 standards so I can play online with the consoles that are still on 4.2 and/or older.

    really older wii= wii's that can install bootmii as boot2 and the wii's that can play DVD-Rs.

    I know, you can hack older wiis just like new. My point is if your wii is newer, less likely you get your wii bricked. My aim: If somebody ask for help in updating I will tell them how to do.

    That causes quite a bit of conflict, considering I've made a few apps myself. Besides, wiibrew is mostly crap. They think that the only thing that matters is the HBC. :P
    Yes, it will work fine.
    Lol, what are you talking about? You are more likely to (permanently) brick it if you have a newer Wii.

    So the OP wanted to now just how to update to 4.3.......and me too!.
    So is it just as easy as taking the update from the console menu OR does one need to "erase" anything etc..before a system update?

    I hear this update/don't update debate every time I go on these forums... either update or don't. Your choice. Updating through the system menu will update your IOSes and your system menu version. Using modmii will update your [c]IOSes and not your system menu version. People say there's a risk of bricking when updating through the SM, however I've had no troubles.

    If you wish to update, make sure no priiloader hacks will prevent updating, and do it through the system menu settings. Easy as that. I don't know why people have to argue over it.
    If you don't wish to update, then don't - use modmii or something like that.

    @lukands, no you don't have to erase anything...just update like the "system update" button clearly says.

    If you want to do it (even though you will gain absolutely nothing from it, except the slight chance of a brick), you should do it via ModMii. since it will be safer. Do it as a re-hacking process so everything is installed correctly.

    @Shano56: The SM doesn't update your cIOS's, it stubs them so you can't use them anymore.
