Will the latest Wii System Update from the Shopping Channel brick a hacked Wii?

    I hacked the Wii and when going onto the Shopping channel it says it needs to perform a System Update. It might be the latest update for 4.3E (Which is the Wii's version) which adds (surprisingly) a new version of the shopping channel and IOS62.
    If I system update the Wii will it brick it?

    No, it won't brick your Wii. It will install IOS62 and the latest version of the Wii Shop Channel. The Homebrew Channel should still be there after you update, but it will likely stub some of your cIOS files. I recommend you use ModMii to install IOS62 and the latest version of the Wii Shop Channel manually without performing a System Update.
