    Hey I was wondering if I could update my wii to 4.0U (so I can pay newer games [​IMG] ) with my wiikey1.9s, the main question I am asking if I can is because i have NO idea if the update would render it inoperable.. and the custom IOSs totally confuse me!

    Anybody think they can help me?

    I don't think updating to 4.0U will render your modchip useless as the person is talking right now (Me) is a chip-user and updated to 4.0.

    Via Nintendo.
    >_> Seriously kids, don't do this!

    Updating to 4.0 in any way, shape, or form will not render your modded Wii useless. You should use Waninkoko's or icefireicefire's updater. Make sure you have enough free space for Waninkoko's updater, or you will get bricked.

    IDK, it came pre-installed. Nevertheless, it should be safe. Even if it's not, there's always a way to fall back.

    I'm 100% certain it doesn't affect your backups. Just one caution, do not trucha-sign (Scrub, etc) your games [​IMG].

    No, waninkoko updates ain't Custom Firmware. It updates only the necessary parts, not ones that are less important.

    [​IMG] I don't know where you got that information. Using Waninkoko's updater doesn't hamper Nintendo's update function (you can still use it). EDIT: As mentioned above, it only touches what should be touched. This includes giving you missing IOSes and updating your channels.
