    I've had homebrew 4.0U for a while now.

    I don't use it for anything anymore. I want to get rid of it without reformating my wii.

    I recently purchased NSMBwii, and it won't let me play without updating my wii first.

    However, I'm worried. They say that the removal of modifications can possibly render my Wii inoperable. Now, if I'm reading this right, that tells me that my Wii could possibly brick from updating.

    I'm fully ready to drop homebrew, seeing as how I don't want to keep it going, and I don't use it anymore for anything.

    Will updating my Wii to the latest version brick my Wii, or does it have a chance of doing so?

    The only way it can brick is if the boot2 update goes wrong.


    But other than that you have no chance of bricking.

    The chance of bricking with a boot2 update is a 1/1000 chance.

    If the game is for your region, by all means update. It will just be a 4.1 update that also installs boot2v4...
