hello, what if I run the upgrades that come with the discs ?
I have a Pal wii with 3.3E and D2pro if is it dangerous if I run the upgrade that comes with PAL games, will I lose homebrew etc ? does it change the 3.3 into 4.x or just install the IOSes ?

thanks and sorry for the newbie question.

bad idea.

Can not only brick your wii, but can make you lose homebrew functionality as well.


Besides, all you need is the specific IOS files a game needs, which can easily be removed via wiiscrubber and installed using wad manager, or installed via gecko OS.

Wrong, no update will brick you, unless you lose power during important parts of update, which is VERY unlikely, unless you update during a thunderstorm or something equally stupid. And the all disc based updates are totally safe homebrew wise. In fact, all updates are safe homebrew wise, including 4.2.

Updates from Disc can possibly brick if you have ever downgraded your Wii before and didn't remove the stubs

Yeah, but downgrade is fail. If you're not an idiot, updates are harmless. About the boot2 update 1: Its not on any discs yet 2: Its very unikely to brick (read the latest article on HackMii)
