    Fair enough odd but it's always best to refer them to the appropriate thread straight away instead of getting into a detailed discussion.

    So I put the "Safe Update" folder on my SD card and have run the program. Everything seemed to work fine but my system information still displays as 4.1u

    I imagine this should change. Should I run the update again?

    Edit: Tried it again and it worked perfectly. USB loader seems to be working fine so far. Very happy with how easy this was.

    This is based off of my offline guide to upgrade any console to v4.2 safely. This is a modification of the Shop Channel and IOS61 Installer by tona. It has been rigorously tested and should not brick anyone, but as usual, use it at your own risk. Source included of course.

    It will detect your region, download and install all of the NECESSARY IOSes, your specific system menu, and the shopping channel update from v4.2 It will NOT touch your cIOSes, stub anything, or touch your boot2. It also will NOT trucha sign any of the IOSes it downloads and installs. If you want to pirate, you'll have to go ahead and use DOP-IOS or similar to trucha patch your IOS70 after the upgrade is complete

    It is almost completely automated. Answer a question in the beginning, sit back and relax, and wait for the update to be completed. When finished, you'll be on v4.2 with everything functional (no upside down HBC, no "vulnerable IOS not found" errors). This should hopefully eliminate all of the goofy issues people have been having with the upgrade.

    Thanks to Dr.Clipper for MUCH help Enjoy

    I myself don't advise anyone to update but if for whatever reason you feel you need the update this may be the safest way.
    Thanks for your link for 4.2 offline updater much appreciated

    safe update fail

    When I did this, it deleted the homebrew channel right off my Wii. Now i do not know if it put official, or custom 4.2 on my wii, all i know is it said 4.2u and i had to re softmod my wii using one of the bannerbomb techniques. Just a heads up if this happens to anyone else, its not the end of the world, you can just use one of the other guides here to re softmod it.
