    Question Trying to update my 4.1U Wii to 4.3U safely

    I am still on 4.1U, mainly because 4.2U offered basically nothing and ricked bricking my Wii, though 4.3U has some useful things. So I have a few questions to ask.

    1. The latest version of HackMii installer supports USB2.0 through the IOS58 that 4.3U added, so then should I install the latest version of HackMii first then 4.3, or 4.3 first?

    2. Does 4.3 still attempt to reflash your boot2?

    3. Is there any sort of "safe" updater that only installs the channel, ios files, etc that are missing from 4.2 and 4.3 without actually stubbing my 200+ CIOS files, deleting my homebrew, undoing any of my hacks, patching security holes, etc?

    Basicallly, what would be the safest and least messy way to go from 4.1U to 4.3U while keeping all my hacks and not risking a brick that replaces my boot2 installed bootmii?

    The last true benefit was 4.1, which addressed a minor bug/quirk with Sports Resort. 4.2 and 4.3 offers nothing new at all except further anti-piracy measures.

    I strongly recommend you not to do this, but if you really want to do it download waninkoko firmware updater v4.3

    Check out DOP-mii. I suggest that you use it to install IOS58.

    edit: DOP-mii can be a life saver. Very handy tool to have. Just be careful with it.

    Lol @ krafter. It's a mystery.

    Never quantify your life by comparison. It is always going to be apples to oranges. If you feel the need to always look down on others, you currently do not own enough mirrors------ Tommie Griffin.
