    Is there anyproblem if I update my Wii?

    Hi guys
    I've got a question regarding updating my Wii.
    See, I've got version 3.0 I think, pretty sure actually...
    And I've got homebrew channel and I run games using Waninkoko's USB launcher. Whenever I want to play a game that needs stuff updated, I just download the IOS the game needs.
    Here's the thing though:
    I already got the homebrew channel installed, and if I want to update my USB launcher, I don't really need to install anything (besides a cIOS probably) except copy and paste the new version on my SD card.
    If I update my Wii firmare to the newest version, will it be impossible to install new IOS or cIOS through the homebrew channel? Will the homebrew channel cease to exist? Will the WAD Manager, installer, or any other thing that I run through the homebrew channel stop working?
    Ok, I'll cut the crap, what'll happen if I update my Wii to the newest firmware?

    thanks in advance

    Yes you can update but you might lose homebrew channel and if you want to start from scratch

    Who said anything about updating your Wii?

    You simply need to update your cIOS, which you already alluded to. Grab the cIOS 38 rev 14 installer from my mediafire (click my signature) and use that to update your cIOS.

    The cIOS Installer folder needed to go into the apps folder on your SD card. I didn't think it necessary to mention this as you already had cIOS38r13 installed and must have done it somehow.

    The wad file included in the installer is a specially modified custom IOS which accompanies the installer and will replace your r13 with r14 but must be installed to IOS249, that's why it has an installer.
