    What does updating the EULA channel do?

    I'd assume displays the most up to date EULA. Its kind of common sense.

    On a less negative side note: Great job on the program, love the hat in the icon, made me chuckle [​IMG]

    Wait, will this update your System Menu to 4.3U? Isn't that a bad idea because of all of the homebrew blocking?

    It may or may not be. Who knows if it has a new code rid of the new homebrew channel? Or certain other hacks for that matter.

    So is this a safe way to update to 4.3 without losing your HB channel and other stuff?

    Just tried it yesterday, and I still had* homebrew channel.

    *I don't want 4.3 just yet, don't know why, I just don't want it, so I restored back using NAND.

    There is NO reason to update to 4.3 as far as I know. It has no new features, all it does it try and fix / stop various homebrew & piracy methods.

    If you need to get into the shop, use something like Dop-SHOP to update it.

    Or manually install ShopChannel v19 and IOS 61 via wads.

    But yes, 4.3 is a useless excuse to update your Wii, and you should spend your time on something better, like reading the 70+ pages about 4.3 and how useless it is [​IMG]

    so, when I ran it, it told me all of my stuff was out of date.
    Then I clicked through each individual IOS [tells me what will get installed, what will get trucha'd, etc] and then the installation part.
    This is where it starts to fail. Every single IOS it tried to install, I get an error saying it couldn't.

    Is this because I'm still on 4.1U, or is there another reason? something I did wrong?

    Just wanted to let you know that this does not upgrade to 4.3. It just updates your IOSes and the Shopping Channel. I still have all my homebrew after using this, and it works pretty well.

    So - just to check -

    I'm a total Newbie - I've only just soft-modded my Wii (which has/had 4.2E) using this guide

    I eventually managed to get it to install HackMii, Homebrew Channel & play DVD's
    I did have a lot of trouble with me needing something called 'ios202' to play DVD's which wouldn't install offline, because I didn't have the 'trucha bug' or something - but after a lot of hassle I finally managed it (by doing it 'online' using the nintendo USB WiFi adpator to download the required files)

    Anyway - back on topic.... Am I right that if I install 'Pimp my wii' into the Homebrew channel & run it - it will check that I have all the latest updates or IOS's (or whatever they're called), download them & update etc - but still keep the Homebrew and DVD playback etc - & I don't have to muck about with NUS Downloader, DOP-Mii v12 or Piiloader ???

    EDIT: OK I took the plunge & tried it out
    It found quite a few outdated/missing IOS's - & I let it update using 'online' through my Ninty USB WiFi Adaptor
    Shop channel works, Homebrew Channel still exists and DVD playback (via WiiMC) still works - even deleting stuff through Homebrew channel works now (It crashed last time I tried)

    CannonFoddr - silly question, but did it update everything to 4.2E or 4.3E? thank you.

    Just ran Pimp my ride 2.02-


    It DOES update your system to 4.1. It also made my Homebrew channel upside down (any idea how to fix)?

    However, my USB drive works, all backups work and all. So I guess I did not mess it up to bad, or did I?

    Just so you know, wiimc has a bit of lag that is annoying, at least my version does. a much better program to use is MPlayer CE. much less buggy, and can load off usb as well, if you want to play movie off a hard drive. im on 4.2E too

    Some games will require you to use 4.3, though.

    So does PMW 1.43 install system channel 4.3 and still keep everything wide open for homebrew, backups, and whatever else one might want to run?
