    Arrow Bought a new Wii FW 4.3U - what to do?

    Hey all,


    First i would like to say, that the only reason i bought a Wii (my gf did) it's because we saw this forum and we got excited about it, so thanks for that.

    Now my issues.


    1. New Wii out of the box, White. (not really an issue)
    2. FW is 4.3U and is asking me to update (i didn't update, because i did read many times, DO NOT UPDATE!) but is this version hackable?

    3. Thanks!

    Sorry, anyways i tried to update it told me i had the most recent version already.

    So here i AM hacking my wii, following Softmode ANY Wii guide, and well... IT'S GOING GREAT!

    I'm at this part now:

    Be sure all 3 wads install, very important
    This installs a version patched SM, which I recommend. If this bothers you, don't do it.

    Can i skip this, why should i not skip?

    Thanks!

    This really should be asked in the guide that you are following.

    Did you read what was right under that?
    WARNING: This is a version patched System Menu, running on a version patched
    cios60. NEVER replace cios60-v54321 with ios60-6174. Doing so will
    brick your wii if you update from Nintendo. Never update from Nintendo, don't MUCK up cios60-v54321. You have
    been warned.
    4.1 is the preferred SM due to the exploits and support. 4.2 and 4.3 are designed to kill homebrew. It's your call on this one, either way, your will will function the same. I chose not to install it and stayed on 4.2, many others have chosen to install it.

    There are many guides (I've seen over 10 reputable working ones that have totally different steps and files) You really need to keep a copy of all the files you use - and the steps you take -- use your web browser to just 'file / save page / complete' or something to that effect - so you can keep a folder on your hard drive with all your steps and info...

    Some important things your wii should do when you are done:

    1: hold the RESET button to get into a cool menu that lets you tweak settings -- or restore your wii to factory settings if you brick it
    2: play backups with one of the various programs (right off the main menu)
    3: access homebrew channel (and inside - all of its cool available programs)

    It is a fairly simple process - with a few steps - that should only take a few minutes to complete... but if its your first time doing it expect to spend a few hours reading - downloading - and messing around before you actually do it.

    =i've hacked 5 wii's over the past few years... updated 3 of them -- once using a normal update method (did not remove my hacks ) the other times using the APPROVED download files and update it with hacked stuff method... (mostly to get the shopping channel / netflix etc)

    so I'm not a pro at this... take my advice with a grain of salt.
