    Japanese Zelda SS: How to update to 4.3U?

    I've posted this before (2 days ago), but since it doesn't appears in the forum, neither in my profile, I assume there was some kind of error, so here I come again:

    Ok, this is another post for Zelda Skyward Sword. I am aware that this was already dealt here and here (and many other threads), but I believe my case is different therefore measures might be different. I don't like repost neither, but as reccomended here I should ask questions before bricking, and this time it might be dangerous.

    As you can infer from the title, I recently bought a Japanese version of Zelda Skyward Sword. Lucky me, I already have some experience dealing with Japanese games. I lived in Japan for a while, and before coming back home, I bought some games there, since they're cheaper there and I prefer playing in japanese rather than english (neither of them is my mother language). So I installed Homebrew Channel (IOS61 v21.29 1.0.6) in my Wii (4.2U) and use Gecko software (v1.9) to run my japanese games (none of them needed systems higher than 4.2U). But at least american ZSS needs 4.3 system. I assume japanese ZSS needs 4.3 as well, right?

    So here comes the real question: How do I upload my wii, without wi-fi internet, and without an original game (my ZSS is original, but it is japanese, so - brick)? I have an american Wii Sports Resorts, so I'm assuming that I'll problably not have any problems with the WM+ tutorial video, or will I?

    I believe this problem is simply solved with a non-official update, but I don't know how to do it, and I wanted to make sure I am doing the right thing (don't want to brick my wii because Japanese ZSS needs different measures from american/european ZSS), so I decided to post with specific information. Although I have some experience instaling HBC once, thats about it. I have some problem understanding tutorials, so please be specific and clear with the explanations.

    Also, is it dangerous to insert my game disk in Wii before updating? I heard that Metroid: other M updates automaticaly, which could be catastrophical in my case.

    I thank beforehand anyone who help me out with this.

    If this kind of question was already answered, I apologise beforehand. I searched for "japanese zelda", but got no results.

    Sorry for the (very) stupid question, but... which one? "Update your IOS"? Or could it be "Softmod ANY Wii"?

    Ok. Thank you. I might (problably will) have more questions as I read through the tutorial, but I guess I can ask them on that thread.
    About inserting the game disk in Wii before updating? Is it dangerous after all?
