    Let's hope this doesn't have the issues the other updaters had.

    Patching every IOS is just a bad idea (4.2 updater did that), and the updaters have a bad habit of becoming brickware when a new update comes out (4.0, 4.1, maybe 4.2: installing stubbed SM IOSes).

    Strange it's called like that, because System menu =/= Firmware

    This will update to 4.3, without removing homebrew and all that, right?

    Unless he patches the system menu (which I doubt), it'll still remove some stuff because it's the system menu itself that does this (every time it boots)

    Exactly, his 4.2 updater didn't patch System Menu, this one probably won't either. Even if it does, its completely pointless. Updating most IOS to the latest revisions is just as good, with exact same end result.

    Unofficial updaters also seem to be less buggy then nintendo's

    Dude, have u been in Jupiter or something? Sorry for the rant but there is a thread that had almost 200 replies talking about 4.3 and it's benefits (if any cause having an updated shop channel and some new ioses means really nothing with nusd + wad-m /yawmm etc) and it's backdraws like losing the hbc, some apps not working correctly etc.

    Great job, even patches out 004. I'm probably going to restore my nand backup anyway until some priiloader hacks come out but good one.
