    Hi everyone

    I was trying to make both loaders run on my Wii and I read on djtaz's guide that to save future problems it was good to make the Safe Update to 3.3 with the app in his zip. I launched it, it showed it was downloading something and installing it and seemed like it had finished doing its work and asked for a reset.

    After that, the Wii System Menu still shows version 3.2E, and I read on another forum that the Safe Update is only for 3.3U...is that true? What did it do to my Wii?

    Thanks for your help!!

    PS: don't misunderstand this, I'm not giving djtaz any fault, his zips are awesome and he's always a great help to everyone having problems here!!

    IF you installed a 3.3U update on a PAL wii, you semi-bricked it.

    It will not harm your system , but don't touch 3.3u if you are running a pal wii .

    The safe update is region free - The U was in error in the zip initially and caused a bit of confusion - your still on whatever riogion your started out on

    Thanks, it still works and it's not bricked. So what did the update do to the Wii? I thought it would update the firmware to 3.3, but it's still on 3.2... [​IMG]

    First of all, what was your system version before this attempt?
    Because I had 3.3 already (v1, before the oct 23 update which I haven't installed) and I installed the IOS51 and Wiishop Update with Tona's installer.
    After doing that my Wii system continues to be 3.3 like before.
    You should check what you installed and tell us better.

    Leave it at 3.2 - its arguably the best one to date

    Ok, thanks everyone for helping!!

    Out of curiosity...did that update install anything on my wii? If so, can I remove it?

    I'm not an expert in removing stuff, I mean I successfully removed and reinstalled a couple of cIOSes but I'm still a bit unexperienced. Anyway you should be able to uninstall stuff using WadManager (for wad files, of course) and AnyTitleDeleter (which requires you to be very careful)

    General rule is - if it works and its not breaking anything , let it be.
    The update would have updated the shop channel to the latest version - uninstalling that would mean you cant use it again.
    Id also leave the cIOS on it in case its required for future use - its not harming anything

    i think a package for updating any 3.1/3.2 systems to 3.3v1 would be a nice thing to have

    having installed BUL 0.3 on a few friends systems lately who have been on 3.1 and never updated i've found myself updating them to 3.3eV2 and then downgrading which i think is a lil bit inconvient but also rather risky.

    the only reason i have updated the systems is the plain and simple fact that eventually there will be games that will require you to have a certain firmware version to run.

    BUL0.3 and also Wan's release are both great pieces of code and i'm truly thankful there are brains such as theres on this forum..but would it be possible to turn the update into a .dol and have it install from SD from the 000000001 folders the way cIOS does..am jus been theoretical here as i am not sure if this is technically possible but must be surely a good way to go....

    can anybody shed any light on this as i would like to take a go at this myself.

    It only installs IOS51 and the shop channel update, it does NOT update the system menu itself.
