Today I finaly got to upgrading to 4.0
I forgot to check if I had enough memory blocks left.
Turned out I didn't. Halfway the installation of the shop channel the installation failed.
I was afraid that I would be left with a brick. but no.
After restarting the Wii and freeing some memory the installer picked up right were it was left.
Nifty!

But, really the property you described (resume function) is great and I didn't knew it

Waninkoko's updater downloads all necessary files from Nintendo's servers before updating. If it fails during the download you have to start over, but you never have to worry about bricking due to files not being properly downloaded, as the updater completes downloading before actually beginning the update. As for the official way being faster, I'm pretty sure you just tried at a different moment when Nintendo's server was running better... both Waninkoko's and the official update get the files from the same place.

Also, for those who keep mentioning it (not in this thread specifically), Waninkoko's Updater is no more or less dangerous than updating via Nintendo. At all. There are only advantages to using it (ie: your old IOSes will be left alone, whereas with Nintendo's update they are not), no disadvantages.
