    Ok, I've got an old 3.2U wii, but I need to upgrade to access the wii store. I'm playing a burned RB2 also. If I upgrade after having done all this homebrew stuff am I going to torch my wii? Will I still be able to update homebrew and all the softmod stuff after I upgrade? Add wads? etc. Thanks

    Yes it is safe, it only updates what's on the Music Store, not the FW on your Wii...!!! [​IMG]

    The RB2 music store is not up yet and no, it is not safe. Keep your 3.2U, or you will not be able to access most homebrew, but it will not brick your Wii

    Doesn't it just update the music list though? I doubt it changes your firmware in any way...

    I had the same with Animal Crossing, had to install a update but it was only for WiiSpeak [​IMG]

    I've got RB2 and I just tested it... I went to the 'Music Store', I connected to Nintendo WFC and then it just said 'No Rock Band Music Store data found'. Now that's weird... :S

    It shouldn't need to update though. At least guitar hero (legit) didn't need to. Avoid updates [​IMG]

    Guitar Hero's music store did not have to update the system's firmware to acess the music store. Rockband 2 also requires no update, it's just the music store hasn't been released, but the game knows where the music store is to access it when it finally does go live. The only update that needed to be done was the update for the wii shop around the time of GH:WT's release.

    The update is for The RB instruments, the music store still won't be opened for a little while.

    Did you install the "Safe 3.3 Update"? After the 3.3 firmware update, they released this "SAFE" 3.3 Update just so you can still access the WiiShop without actually updating your firmware and keep it at 3.2U.

    I have the Safe 3.3 update and can access Wiishop + Starfall will keep you from updating to another FW.
    3.2U TPHack, Softchip, Wii-ish_Force_NTSC_002_FIX about 3 weeks with no problems.

    Safe Update 3.3 (For USA Wii's)

    Just create a folder inside the APPS folder on the SD card (Folder can be named anything like 'Safe update'.
    Run Homebrew Channel and you'll find Safe 3.3 Update in the list. Run it and follow it's instructions.

    -- This is the info from the META file --
    ONLY REQUIRED IF YOU HAVE WIRELESS !!
    This fixes the issues with the 3.3 update that disables homebrew from working released Oct 23rd 2008.
    It updates the shop channel and installs a custom IOS5.
