    Hey guys,

    I'm looking into installing cIOS on my 3.3E wii. I know, its currently up-to-date. I have the homebrew channel installed, which im not concerned about so thats irrelivant. Anyway, i want to know, if i install cIOS36, and nintendo releases a new firmware, is it safe to update? Like, i assume it will just overwrite cIOS and i will have to reinstall it yeah? Or not? If you guys could tell me about your experiences with updating while cIOS is installed that would be awesome [​IMG]

    Thanks.

    Updating from 2.0-3.3 with cIOS installed is safe.
    If there will be 3.4 and it'll become not safe to update then you'll know it...just check GBAtemp daily

    Thanks for the info. Just wondering, say nintendo created a 3.4 firmware, and i had cIOS installed, and i updated to it, will 3.4 overwrite 3.3 cIOS, so that i basically no longer have it installed? Or will cIOS still be installed? ( Lol, just concerned about bricking my wii [​IMG] )
