    I have the firmware 4.3U WAN on but I heard it is dangerous and I should uninstall it via the app itself right? It takes up 600 blocks and I am wondering if I uninstall it will I get my blocks back? Also need to un-install the Wii Shop Channel WAD or the NUS auto updater if it is safe.

    Anyways my question is if I update to the OFFICIAL 4.3, will I lose priiloader and CIOS 249 permanently or can I retrieve it somehow? Please link on which specific download versions I should use since 4.3 kills everything from what I have heard and version is specific for each updater you have. My Wii really is screwed up from all of this hacking but not bricked yet. I want to clean my Wii up too and I don't understand WHY Nintendo will not allow us to copy Wi-Fi games to the SD card normally. They haven't even given a technical reason for it. So this makes 249 mandatory so I CAN copy it. I want to update so I can start shopping on the Wii Shop Channel but it says I haev other things in the way and that I can't update.

    What do you think the best option is? I want to buy Wii Ware games and the like. Also holiday season is coming up which means great VC games will be released so I need to make sure the shop channel is up and ready to update at all times.

    My PM has been revoked so I can't use that atm. Message me here and I will try and post as LEAST as possible. Or log onto MSN or yahoo or AIM and message me if you have them. I have not touched my Wii for a month and need to update a few appliactions.

    Basicly it's simple, if you have the HBC on the latest version (and only if it's really on the latest version):

    Update via Menu -> Run IOS236-Installer -> Remove Stubs (249/250) with DOP-Mii Wiibrew-Edition -> Install cIOSes again.

    Though this probably won't work, Wanins-Updater are crap and far away from clean, so if you want a clean Wii, I, for my part, would install every IOS with DOP-Mii Wiibrew-Edition, update all Channels, and then install the Systemmenu 4.3. Dang, clean Wii (IOS/Menu/Channel at least). Be shure that you have BootMii as Boot v2 ready, and a Backup, read carefully, and everything at your own risk. After that, you can use the above directions to install the cIOS again, and install the latest Priiloader (which should also have a Hack for copy protected saves to the sd, so no IOS249 required).

    Or, if that's still to complicated for you, have a look at ModMii. I'm shure that app is able to help you...

    This sounds complicated. Could you please help me via Yahoo or AIM? Yahoo is smashdude73 and AIM is weiddude. Can't PM had it revoked for a lame reason. I really don't want to brick my Wii and even non-Homberew owners are claiming that their system memory is getting corrupted by this official updater.

    But then how do I undo WAN? I want to get rid of WAN too. I want to be on 4.3U with everything and a downgrader ready when appropriate because 4.3 kills everything so if my Homeberw screws up, then I will need to downgrade to 4.2
