    If you don't remember, for 4.2 exist a way to update in a safe way without losing risk things: Safe Updater 4.2.
    Now that 4.3 is safe to use, a 4.3 version should be created.
    Well, the thing that the creator of 4.2 isn't around here for a long time.

    Will be awesome if somebody creates a 4.3 version.

    I assume he is talking about Waninkoko's 4.3b Updater!

    As far as how"safe" it is- is to be debated.

    Here is the info about the 4.2:

    No, i'm talking about the Safe Updater 4.2 that zektor created when 4.2 was launched.
    Is about that someone who can do a 4.3 updater like the 4.2 one, will be awesome.
    Waninkoko Updater isn't so good, because patch nearly all IOS.

    Just use NUSAD to download SM 4.3, then use YAWMM to install those wads.

    somtimes thats a good thing. because it makes sure that it doesn't kick out the HBC and bootmii and it's not pulling a darkcrap.

    Basically is that, a modified version of the shop channel installer for install 4.2.
    I know that is possible to update with another method, but aren't so easy to install like a simple installer.

    Now it's safe to update, because you can use almost all features that you can have in lower firmwares versions.
    Also, has the IOS 58, that now is used for improve to USB 2.0 in some homebrew like HBC and emulators that can be able to use HDD.
    (And some people just want to install it, like the 4.2 version).

    As the guy who did the coding of the Safe 4.2 Updater, I can safely say I won't be doing the same for 4.3. There is absolutely no need to update. The multiple fails of Waninkoko's updater show some of the reasons why not to do it.

    As it stands, here's the rule you should follow:

    Do NOT update to 4.3, neither via Nintendo's updater method nor any updater apps, and especially NOT Waninkoko's.

    Edit: I'll add that you can install IOS58 to fool around with it if you like, but that's easy to do with either Dop-Mii or the IOS58 updater app. Updating the shop without updating the Wii is also quite easy.

    Anyone who updates to 4.3 for anything other than testing purposes is a fool, there is no reason, no benefit, etc, etc. There are many ways to install the updated ios and channels without installing 4.3. I don't understand how every single wii homebrew website on the planet can tell the world NOT to update to 4.3, but people still want to do it.

    It's like screwing the school slut, it may feel good for a few minutes, but you won't like what's growing in your pants in the morrow. Don't touch her, everyone says to stay away for a good reason, its dirty down there.

    I don't see the problem with updating (I understand there maybe no need, tho I did here it brings 3DS support), but I just updated with the Nintendo updater, didn't loose anything, no brick and my system is running the same has it was, actually probably better since all my official IOSes are now up to date and I didnt have to do each one individually. It actually took longer for the Wii to download the update than it did to finish setting it up. As long as you prepare correctly for the Nintendo update it is as good a way as any to update.

    Note: The above point is in reference to the risk of losing hacks, not the stability of the Nintendo update, but that stability (or lack of) would effect any and all Nintendo updates not just 4.3

    Waninkoko's Updater was the same in 4.2 (nearly all IOS with trucha, bugs and a lot of little problems), that's the reason that a lot of people updates with the Safer version.
    But, what things 4.3 do that we cannot fix yet? Why don't update if you can do NEARLY ALL things from 4.2 in 4.3? Why don't add the choice to update to 4.3 that now is safer to update (doesn't lose HBC, CIOS works fine, etc..)?
    Is the same discussion as not update with 4.2...
    Yeah, you can install IOS58 without so much problems, but only install "parts" isn't so good too.

    Can you tell me what the problem is with leaving a GC memory card in during the DOP-Mii method? If it was done with one in, can I just remove it and run it again? Although it didn't apear to cause any problems?

    There is an issue with some apps that use NUS downloading whereby using GCN attachments causes the install process to fail. This is especially the case for Hermes' updater, but I have added warnings to the other apps as I have had users that stated that removing the controllers/memory cards actually fixed issues they were having with the apps. Not everybody sees the problems, and I believe the true issue is with memory cards moreso than controllers (possibly this confuses the SD card access), so if the installs worked OK for you, there is probably no need to redo them, but it is perfectly safe to redo them if you are paranoid.

    Ok Dr. Clipper, is true that 4.3 doesn't have any benefits except USB 2.0, so installing IOS 58 with a new installer that appeared (or another ways) is the safest way to have the benefits of 4.3 without updating to 4.3?

    Well.. if a 4.4 appears and have benefits, try to do a safe updater.
