    Updating Wii

    I have a hacked(softmodded) Wii 4.3e. Today, when I started the Wii Shop Channel, it told me that I should update my Wii. My question is, will my Wii brick if I update it and what will I lose(eg. Homebrew, USB Loader, The softmod...). Thanks in advance. If you need more details, just tell me.

    Your Intro was auto moderated by our system because it included an http reference. I will fix it now. Once you have a few more posts in it won't do that to you anymore. Its set this way to help prevent spam on the forum.

    In answer to your question, never update from N, it will kill your softmod. If you need to update your shop channel look HERE.

    If I want to get any other new features in the future(Nintendo Network ID and more stuff released with Wii U) how should I do it without losing my hack? If there isn't a way without losing my hack, then will my Wii brick if I update it through Nintendo?

    The answer provided applies. If you need to update your softmod (Wii only), there's a section in the softmod any wii guide to do so.

    In relation to any rollout with the WiiU, that falls under "yet to be determined" and unknown if applies (to the Wii). After its release and provided it's possible (in that an accompanying update rolls out for the regular Wii), it's highly likely you'll find it on this site.
