    I have been away from the Wii hombrew and hacking community for a good year. Have I missed anything cool/crucial changes to the way we all mess with our Wiis? I saw the following statement on WiiBrew.org:

    Does this mean I can update to the official firmware? I would really like to do that, but how would I do this to avoid bricking?

    Here's a link to a sysCheck I ran, if that helps show you all what I currently have installed.

    I'm just getting pumped for Pikmin 2 this Sunday, and I wanted to 'dust off' my Wii.

    Thanks!

    I forgot
    You can update, but quite frankly there's not really any point in doing so. If you insist, I would suggest remodding your Wii with ModMii.

    Just re-hack the Wii using ModMii so that you will have all the latest cIOS etc. ModMii will also let you install the latest firmware safely.

    DML is one to start with. You can play Gamecube Games off the SD card.

    Unless you have done something really stupid, updating to the latest System Menu (System Menu =/= firmware) will not brick, and never has. The WiiBrew wiki has (almost) always contained that message because there is nothing WiiBrew supported that will be broken by the update (worst case scenario, BootMii can be removed from boot2 and/or IOS, but can very easily be reinstalled).
