    I would recommend you to do disc updates only.

    *facepalm*

    Some people just don't listen well. Lets just hope that your wii isnt one of the few that 4.2 kills their modchip. If it doesn't, then you will be able to play only in region games now.

    I update all the Wii's I mod to 4.2 and have had no issues with any of the modchips I use. Out of region games will not play on the 4.2 update.

    yea, i just installed mine 2 days ago, and its like you say, the only issue is with playing our of region games on the 4.2 and the NSMB problem which is being fixed "stated on drivekey site"

    4.2u works fine on drivekey..havent heard of it killing chips, some wii's brick regardless of having a mod in or not if the update doesnt get properly updated. best to do disc updates instead in future though.
