    I'm Not Sure What I'm Asking or Doing...

    I was installing Homebrew on 4.1, and was on the second step using the wad and apps folders, but it encountered an error while working and I had to reset my Wii. Now, where the disc channel is, it says "Wii System Update". I've decided I don't need Homebrew anymore, so I deleted the channel. However, I wonder if it's safe to update? Because I want to keep playing games but don't want to brick my wii, obviously.

    If you (had) or (will) install Priiloader, you won't get that prompt. IDK even for sure what you're doing or asking. A failed attempt at softmodding shouldn't make you throw in the towel and update to the very-difficult 4.3

    Let me clarify, sorry.

    I don't really need homebrew, I was only installing it so I could use Region Changer. But when I want to play a game like Brawl, where the Disc Channel usually displays a picture of the game, it instead says I have to update my system menu before I can play games again. I'm just wondering if it's safe to update or not.

    Was the purpose of this exercise merely to change the region, or to softmod? You do know you can softmod and that there's a guide for that game (dual layered), right?

    Just wanted to change the region to enable Japanese characters for Mii names.

    Do you think it's safe to update if I've deleted HBC?

    I still don't understand why you went to the trouble of the rest. Did you follow an AnyRegionChanger guide somewhere here on wiihacks? I'm sure there is one, just never sought it out. I do not feel qualified to answer --- not knowing exactly what you did. I also fail to see an upside to not doing the softmod in full, but hey to each his own.
