NTSC Retail NSMBW -- Update
I was given a copy of this as a gift, so I actually have a retail version of this. I have used Wanikoko's 4.2U update, and have installed all the latest IOS's and channels (including shopping). It still prompts me for an update, and I was told by a source that this update would NOT nuke homebrew apps or overwrite higher IOS's (which most of my WAD's are installed on).
Can anyone confirm this? Has someone bitten the bullet and accepted this update? :eek:
NSMBW update from disk on 3.4J to 4.1J no problem
So for any of you out there that live in Japan (might be useful for others who are still on 3.x system menu)
Brought home New Super Mario Bro. Wii today. I had a homebrewed 3.4J Wii (using boot2). I've installed random IOSes here and there to play certain games. NSMBW required a system update. I did a quick search, didn't find a whole bunch of concrete answers. I backed up my nand (from the bootmii screen on startup) and then, holding my breath, clicked the system updater on the game disc.
As said above (in a another post), after the updater ran once (which updated the system menu to 4.1J), it required another update; the second update took much longer, my guess is it installed some IOSes instead of updating the system menu (but just a guess).
Anyways, the game works! Homebrew still works! Other games still work! I'm not using Gecko or anything.
4.1 update on disk removes boot2 install of bootmii
Update: I realized after posting yesterday that the bootmii startup screen no longer showed up. The problem was temporary as I was able to reinstall it as boot2. FYI.
