    To any newbie who stumbles across this, there is no such thing as a "4.3 safe update", so don't do something stupid like that. It was an unnecessary, not to mention dangerous, choice to update. Had this user actually had the common sense to wait for an answer, he would have found out that updating the Shop Channel was the smart and safe thing to do.

    Dont insult me and put me on display. For your information this is what I did...

    "WiiBrew recommends that you run the latest version of the HackMii Installer and then optionally update your Wii to 4.3 using Nintendo's official updater."


    By safe I meant Hackmii then the official update.

    I just don't want any bricks in the future because people saw this and thought updating was a good idea. I know what WiiBrew says, but that doesn't make it a good idea. They think that, as long as you have the HBC you will be fine, but that won't save you if you get a brick from a failed update. Excuse me for trying to save people from a brick.

    My bad then, all apologies, I just thought Wiibrew would know better. Gotta research more often.

    Before the updated HBC, WiiBrew said something like:

    "DO NOT UPDATE TO 4.3! IT IS DANGEROUS AND WILL REMOVE THE HBC!"

    Even though the update is just as dangerous, they now encourage it because you won't lose the HBC. It's stupid.

    Note how it's optional, not encouraged at all. The actual points that it's trying to get across are:
    a) Make sure you have the newest HBC installed
    b) If you do choose to update it's much better to do it via the system menu than use some half-assed "safe" updater

    Updating isn't dangerous unless your wii is already trashed. It's pretty stupid to spread FUD about running the software written by the makers of the console while at the same time recommending hacked up tools or patched firmware that was created by god knows who.

    Well I can see both points but still Wiibrew telling us to optionally and officially update from Nintendo at all but at the same time the ones sharing hacks it just doesn't make much sense now that I look at it.

    So.. the fact that it quickly and easily solved the problem that you had when you originally opened this thread has slipped your mind?

    Don't be a douche. I hardly consider your opinion worth something after you contributed to ModMii getting taken down from google code.

    I admit I acted harshly towards the OP, but there is no reason for you to jump in this thread and insult both of us.

    Hey, it looks like the OP has solved his issue. To prevent any further arguing, I'm locking this down.
