Guitar Hero 5, Beatles Rockband and Wasabi DX system update....
I have a PAL Wii with a wasabi DX which is fully up to date (v.3)
The Wii itself has a firmware 4.1e. With No softmods at all. No homebrew and I have no Idea what an IOS is.
However, when I load up guitar hero 5 or Rock Band: Beatles, It tells me I need to update again.
Apparently I've heard that the update ruins all your homebrew. But I don't have any homebrew or soft mods at all.
I also know that brickblocking the .iso file prior to burning it just makes the game go to black screen. (tested: yes, it fails with a blue screen)
What should I do to ensure I don't ruin my wii and make it usless for playing all my other PAL and NTSC backups?
All without the need to install any softmods (including any of the ios files I seem to read about so much) at all onto the wii?
Thanks in advance, - If anyone can help me get this working in the next few days I'll give £20 to the charity of your choice! (with proof!)

Yep, in order to play games that support extra equipment like a guitar you sometimes need to perform an update from the game disc the first time. As stated above, this is not a system update to 4.2.
Just make sure to use a game from the same region as your Wii, i.e. in your case the PAL version of the game.
Yes, just to confirm, everything works fine. - No concerns about bricking...
