    It likely patches over the CIOS and most likely overwrites the HBC.......... then again who knows........

    I you have CIOSCORP, it will likely always prompt you to update

    ya i got 2 wiis. 1 unmooded and 1 modded.. the unmodded one that had 4.0 already came up with a system update after an internet test, and it downloaded something...

    im not touching my modded wii with it...

    i was just giving a warning b/c no1 seems to know about this post 4.0 update yet so if some1 tries to update to 4.0 it may include these updated files from just now in them..

    Every time you do an internet test it will prompt you to update no matter what firmware you're on.

    Don't worry about it, there's nothing new.

    That's because the update is none other than 4.0 and that blocks the use of IOS16. That's old news and is why you have to use the DVDX downgrade trick.

    That's because it's 4.0 and not a new update.

    Yeah, unfortunately the update blocking preloader hacks appear to have missed blocking this update pathway [​IMG]
