    well it's allready 4.2 so you're good for a while anyway. i use preloader to prevent updates from disk, turn off wiiconnect24, and use parental controls in the setting so i have to enter four digit number to do anything from there.

    lol well i cant do all that.. its not my wii... its my dads wii.. and he uses the weather channel thing and the internet so i cant turn off wiiconect24 or w.e its called. cuz then the internet dont work.... and my ? was will it brick the wii if they update it??.. or will it just erase the mod.... i dont play it that often so it dont really matter. i just want to play snes game every once in awhile and n 64 games.. thats really the only reason why i did this... so all i need to know is what will happen if it gets updated..i told my dad that i just added a channel to the wii and that was it.. cuz my dad and mom would wigggggggg out lol.

    normally wii prompts do you wanna do an update after it finds successfull internet connection or if there were files missing that it needs to run something. you can use preloader to avoid it updating from disks, but like i said before you are already on 4.2 and so far the latest game updates are for 4.1. i would just check in from time to time to see what is happening in the wii scene and you should be ok at least for a while.

    there are 2 possibilities:
    your wii could brick, or it will undo the softmod. both have happened to ppl insame situation so i cannot with 100% certainty tell you which will happen to you. i am sure there are reasons such as a certain ios file or something that makes the difference but as of yet no one has been able to tell because either the wii is bricked and there is nothing to tell, and ppls wii are set-up and configured with such subtle differences noone knows.
