    I had recently modded my wii with the Super Smash Bros exploit, but today, when I tried to access the wii shop channel, they wanted me to update again? Have any brave souls updated to this yet? I want my USBloader GX to keep working so I am scared to update. I currently have firmware 4.3u. Will I need to re-hack the thing?

    The easiest thing to do is just use ModMii to install the latest Wii Shop Channel and the latest IOS56. This way, you won't have to update. If you would rather update through Nintendo, make sure you are using version 1.0.8 of the Homebrew Channel; it will not get deleted by the update. However, you might have to reinstall some IOS files that get stubbed.

    You would also lose Priiloader, and while the chance of a full brick from the update is very small, there is no reason to risk it.
