    Please clarify what you mean by update:

    1.Does he want the system menu updated? If so, advise him that staying on 4.2 is fine...there is no need to update to 4.3

    2.If he wants some apps updated just grab the new ones and replace the old ones

    no it wont be bricked unless the power goes out, but he will not have his softmod any longer.
    rule of thumb: if youre doing things with a device that you arent able to do out of the box, never update. and that goes for any system or device EVER

    his savegames will be fine, but if he has pirated wiiware/vc, or uses burnt discs or usb loaders, they wont work anymore.

    if youre going to re-mod it then you will need indiana jones or ssbb retail discs NOT BACKUPS

    What I don't understand is the need to update so badly to 4.3?? [​IMG]

    Why don't he stay on 4.2 and block all kind of updates through priiloader?

    don't update.
    and if you do update, install a forwarder channel first so you have a backdoor.
