    Hello

    My wii is in 4.2 u and I want to install the latest shop channel...

    Is it safe to install ios56 (latest version) with an old version of the system menu??? any risk of brick?

    Thank you

    Yes it is safe. And since most new games/wiiware are using this IOS is good to update anyway.

    The only time you have to worry about stub IOS actually breaking anything is if you're upgrading a system menu IOS. System menu IOS aren't used for games ever, so there is never any reason to update them. Likewise if you're just updating an IOS a game uses, you have no chance to brick your system menu... assuming of course you're installing the right IOS [​IMG]

    The only IOS's that you really need to be cautious with are: IOS9, IOS11, IOS20, IOS30, IOS40, IOS50, IOS60, IOS70, and IOS80. This, however, doesn't mean that you should just go around messing with IOS's without knowing what you're doing.

    That's different though, you're not upgrading an IOS, you're installing a patched system menu IOS just so you can run pirated WADS.
