If I update(via Nintendo)to SM 4.3,will I lose any functionality that I actually use?
Evening all, first of all, I have spent the last couple of days reading threads, guides, tutorials, FAQs and rules etc. I have already learnt a fair bit, and done some modding of my Wii. However I do have a question that may need a little thought to answer.
My current situation is…
Australian launch Wii currently on 3.3E
Hardmod soldered WiiKey 1 on 1.99BETA
HBC installed (latest version)
BootMii installed as Boot2 (Not IOS)
I’m interested in updating my Wii to the latest software in the most convenient manner possible (update from Nintendo). I have of course read the threads advising ‘Do NOT update from Nintendo’ and the thread advising how to update specific iOS via Wad manager and MMM etc. I know if I update to 4.3 I will lose multi region functionality but this is not a concern for me. Also, losing the ability to play discs that exploit the Trucha bug is not a big concern for me.
The things I’d like to achieve are listed below roughly in priority order…
1. Update my Wii to the newest software in the simplest way possible (without going to the trouble of using MMM or Wad manager to install IOS’s) (again not concerned about losing multi region play)
2. Be able to play current or new backups from DVD (not concerned about USB/HDD loading)
3. Keep the homebrew channel
4. Keep BootMii as Boot2
If you’re still reading, thanks for your patience!
So my question is, if I update from Nintendo to SM 4.3 will I…
A. Still be able to play PAL (own region) DVD backups? (I assume yes)
B. Will I still have the HBC? Or will I have to ‘letter bomb’/’indiana pwns’ it back in?
C. Will BootMii still be there as Boot2 for emergencies? (I assume yes)
Any answers to my questions, thoughts, feedback or even general conversation would be appreciated!
