    OK, so, I wanted to play Skyward Sword right? When I put it in, it says I need to update.

    Here's the problem. My Wii is 4.3u, and this update type is different then other ones. Instead of telling you to update when you press start, it has this new type of banner for the Disk Channel.

    I'm too afraid to actually update, has anyone actually gotten over this yet?

    You shouldn't update past 4.1, it's just anti-homebrew stuff. If you had properly hacked your Wii, then you would have Priiloader blocking updates. Either you have 4.3a (4.3b was released to block a hacking vulnerability by installing a bunch of unnecessary IOS's on your Wii, wasting space), or you have some cIOS's installed and it's trying to overwrite them with stubs.

    I suggest you rehack your Wii with ModMii.

    If I use the update, will the Wii brick?

    Not unless there is a power outage, but you should still rehack your Wii. It won't take that long and you will be much better off for it.

    So this new update, won't hurt the Wii at all? Even if Homebrew is still on there?

    Well you will have less free space on your Wii and you will get your cIOS's stubbed, but other than that you will be fine (unless there happens to be a power outage in the middle).

    I'm telling you to rehack your Wii properly because you need the brick protection.

    So should I rehack after updating or before?

    Before, then don't update (you won't be asked to). There is no point in wasting space.

    Can't you read? Everything he says points to update before.
