    DO NOT USE THE ONLINE UPDATES. unless you want to wait until someone figures out a way to rehack it.

    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.

    Click the link for the guide to 3.1-4.1 hacking in my signature. There is a link at the bottom of the first post for the 4.2 shop hack. Install that. Will protect from the online update and install the latest version of the shop (v18).

    What do you mean by "go online?" Do you mean the Internet Channel? Because you can still do that. You can use all the internet features (including online play). Just not the channels that use WiiConnect24 (like the News and Forecast Channels). Speaking of which, make sure your WiiConnect24 is TURNED OFF. I know it isn't ideal to have channels you can't use, but when you think of all the things that homebrew lets you do and all the backups you can play, it's definitely a fair trade.

    If I've helped you at all, please click the "Thanks" button. Thank you and good luck.

    The reason most people do that is to see if they've helped or not. If I've posted an answer to a question and someone says "Thanks," then I know the information I've given them has been helpful. If they don't, I know that it wasn't. Plus, sometimes people need to be reminded of proper manners. Otherwise, they might post obnoxious comments on random threads.

    To the OP

    Never Update online
    Updating online will remove all softmods, bootmii included, and could brick your wii.
    Don't do this unless you're instructed to do so by a forum mod.


    Never update from disk

    Updating from disk can brick or semi-brick your wii. It is almost never necessary, even when the disk say's otherwise.
    Don't do this unless you're instructed to do so by a forum mod.

    You should really read all of that.

    Like Trotter says, internet channel and online games will still work. And you can stay connected to your router. Just dont turn on wiiconnect24, and never update! If new updates come out, and if theyre useful at all, the good people here will come up with ways to safely update your wii.
