    I heard you shouldn't update to 4.2, things like bannerbomb don't work, homebrew channel, bootmi, IOS70 are all stopped.

    If I were you, for the time being I wouldn't update.

    To be exact it stops:
    • Bannerbomb
    • Deletes HBC and blocks Hackmii installer
    • Overwrites cIOS 249, 250, 222 and 223
    • Preloader doesn't work
    • Bootmii doesn't work

    As preloader still works till 4.1, install it and block updates

    Or if you don't like it get Startpatch (4.0 and 4.1 only)

    No, use GeckoOS to load your new games the first time, It will add and update appropriate non-stub (working) IOS files so your game runs but system menu stays intact.

    Running Wii sports resort on 3.2 so it currently works.

    Blocking updates alone could make some newer games blackscreen or error due to needing Certain IOS files installed.

    Do block updates if you tend to boot through disc channel a lot so you don't accidentally update, just like I said boot your original disc games the first time with GeckoOS.

    what i am wondering is if the update removes every fakesigned channel. that would mean that it removes hacked vc/ww and selfmade channels as well as it removes hbc. that would be a huge leap forward when it comes to piracy prevention.

    over at tehskeen someone said he installed ios70 and sm4.2 and only hbc got effected. i think they are simply filtering the haxx channel in some way.

    Actually, I just tried it (since I updated with a WAD it didn't update the boot2, so I can roll back using BootMii). My USB Loader channels created by Loadstructor were still there. HBC was gone though. I never would have tried it without having BootMii still installed.
