    i've got the lastest HBC thats compatible with 4.3
    and i've got IOS 236 (which aint deleted after update)
    and IOS 250 (can't overright due to highest possible version)

    my question is can i safely update via nintendo and then use any title deleter to delete the stubs then reinstall my cios?

    I don't undersand why people need / want to update to 4.3! The only reason would be latest shop channel which can be updated by Wiiscu anyway!

    There are no new "features" in 4.3 like there was in 4.0 unless you count Nintendo's latest efforts to stop Homebrew!

    It is as safe as any Nintendo online update (Which have bricked even non softmodded Wii's in the past)!

    You should listen to Bugaveli and use Waninkoko's Firmware updater 4.3B.

    If you update you will probably lose homebrew channel and all that and you would need to install Hackmii 0.7

    ok i did mention first post i had latest homebrew channel installed so that would get wiped via update, i'm currently on 4.2 its running ok but since i purchase disc games some newer ones may not work due to outdated ios's (4.2 ios's)

    then update your ioses and not your SM, youll never need a new system m,enu to play games, and if u use priiloader youll never accidentally update. so again it is pointless. I know ppl still on 3.2 that can run everything just fine.

    Once you run into that problem you can just download the correct ios and still stay on 4.2!

    No playing online will work fine on system menu 4.2! It's only the Wiishop that you will need to update!

    ok, for older games which can play online, since i've got 4.2 with all the ios's came with 4.2 i guess i dont have to touch anything to play via wifi

    Older games & current games and games yet to come out will all continue to function on 4.2 unless Nintendo change this in the future which is unlikely!

    you can play online with any SM, i dont think we need to all say again that theres NO reason to update your SM! none! PERIOD, the answer to your next question is no you dont need to update

    Another pointless thread about updating to 4.3, I'm tire of repeating the same advice to anyone starting a thread like this one.

    if you were really a mod you wouldnt close it you would just warn me and delete my posts for not helping lol


    +1 especially when theres already 5 clone thread of this one on the main page.
    "but MY wii has gamecube ports on the top thats different than the other threads!!!!"

    The only thing that could make me really angry is having the OP replying that he is going to update anyways after everyone telling him no to do it.
