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 My PM has been revoked so I can't use that atm.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.
