    lol this is the second time in the past hour I've answered this question, a mod really needs to sticky this.

    Don't worry, updating through Nintendo WILL NOT BRICK your Wii. All it will do is delete your Homebrew Channel and you will have to resoftmod.

    If you don't want to lose your softmod, then you can update using Waninkoko's 4.1 or 4.2 updater. Only update to 4.2 if it is absolutely necessary. If Tiger Woods 10 only needs 4.1 update, then only update to 4.1 update.
    Please remember to thank if I have helped you in any way!

    thank you very much for your help. Sorry about posting the same question i was kinda worried and felt i would get a better answer if i just asked myself. also is the update that is asked for on the disk the same as if i just updated regularly and do i lose all my downloaded wiiware/virtual console games or just hbc.

    If you update through Nintendo you will lose EVERYTHING! You will lose all your Wii Ware and VC because you installed them illegally.

    Please just update using one of these apps preferably 4.1;

    4.1 Wii Customization - TehSkeen
    4.2 We Hack Wii: Waninkoko Releases "Firmware Updater v4.2"

    Hope this helps!

    Does your answer apply to my question also?
    Happy Holidays to all..........My Wii has a chip and its updated to 4.2.
    I am playing my games on hard drive. I use USB Loader GX. Santa bought
    DJ Hero for my son. I loaded the game & copied it to my hard drive. Every
    thing works great. Well my son has a bunch of Wii points and wants to
    purchase some songs. When loading the original game or buying new
    songs it asks for a system upgrade? Can I update or what?
    Thanks...........

    dago PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!!! Do not update with a modchip. This can and likely will lead to your chip being ruined by the update.
    I don't know why it is asking for an update, that is strange considering you already have 4.2 I would recommend first doing Waninkoko's safe 4.2 updater. If you still require an update, then install the WiiShop Channel 4.2 wad through wad manager.

    If this STILL doesn't work, then just wait until someone inevitably uploads all of the Dj hero DLC in wad form, and you will be able to install it without using your Wii points.

    Best of luck and have fun with DJ Hero!

    I thought the same thing . If I am already on 4.2 then what is there to update.
    I am kinda new to this and all my INFO is from this site (which is great).
    Ya tonight I will try and find Waninkoko's safe 4.2 updater and give it a shot.
    thanks for quick reply..............
    DJ Hero A++++++++++++++++++ so far...........
