I'm not sure if this goes here or in the General Wii subforum, but feel free to move it to the correct one, please. I've been booting my legit copies of New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Super Mario Galaxy 2 from Gecko OS to avoid updating my 4.1U Wii. The problem is that it's annoying that the play history thinks I'm using the Homebrew Channel when I'm playing them, so I'd like to update my Wii (I'm also interested in buying some WiiWare and VC games). When 4.2 came out, I didn't update because of the reports of people having their Wiis bricked because of problems with Boot2. The HackMii blog once said that BootMii's version of Boot2 had the same risk of having the console bricked, so I'm very concerned about updating. WiiBrew recommends installing BootMii and the Homebrew Channel and then updating using the official procedure, but I've also read that Nintendo's boot2 will replace BootMii's, so I don't see the point in installing BootMii (besides, there is a risk of bricking the console when boot2 is modified). I'm looking to update without using downloaded IOSes or cIOSes, as I only use the HBC in order to play my legit GameCube and Wii imports. The only time in which I've installed a downloaded IOS is when I needed to update the Wii Shop Channel to buy Mega Man 10. I bought my Wii console during late January 2007, I'm specifying this in case bricks cause by modification of boot2 has been found to be correlated with the Wii's manufacture date.
