    I wanted to download the new BBCiPlayer for Wii (for my parents mostly) and it asked me to update, so i went on system update and clicked on it and it said -

    "Please note that any custom modification will be deleted" etc. etc.
    Which a nice way of saying OMFG LETS BRICK YOU MUHAHAHAHAHA.

    Is it safe to update?

    Thanks,
    Cameron.

    I believe updating to 4.2 removes all home brew from your wii but if you follow this excellent guide http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=171901 you can install it back on again.

    I have used this guide to hack my Wii and am in the process of updating a friends wii to 4.2 from 3.4 to do the same.

    Not sure if updating an already hacked wii can cause problems but I guarantee someone here will know

    If you ONLY want to update the wii shop.

    Run WiiSCU.24 from wiibrew [​IMG] Install IOS61 and The wii shop.

    Do what longtom1 said and use WiiSCU. If you're on 4.2 and are seeing that, you didn't update the shop channel.

    BTW, a hacked wii will likely always think an update's available, since it sees that the stubs for cIOS are missing.
