Wii System Menu 4.2 Released, Deletes and Blocks Homebrew


Sponsored Links
257w ago - It appears Nintendo has released another Wii System Menu update today to version 4.2.

Like previous updates, this latest revision will both delete and block Wii homebrew... and in [Register or Login to view links] destroy consoles, so be aware of this before updating your console.

It's also a mandatory update in order to access the Wii Shop Channel.

To quote: "I have NO idea why Nintendo loves to send me those update messages at midnight... alas, they keep doing it. Anyway, this time it was to let us know that the Wii has a System Update waiting: Firmware 4.2.

Now, the weird thing is, Nintendo hasn't even announced this yet! That's right, it just hits your system and no official release is made.

As such, there is not much information on what exactly this 4.2 update does exactly... Obviously, it attempts to override any form of hacking, homebrewing, or illegal software loaders (and according to reports, it does so fairly well, deleting the ever-famous Homebrew Channel and all custom IOS installed in tampered Wiis)."

Ok let's suppose I have a 3.2 Wii and want to install 4.1 so that I can softmod my console with all the lates guides on the net!??! How do I do that?!?

Is there a way to update my WII to only 4.1 without it being softmoded already (I know 4.1 can be installed as a WAD if you have a softmoded console)?

Is there a DISC update utility?!?! or something that updates a WII from SD card!? (again without being softomoded)?
Please advise!

the Wii reminds me too much of the psp =\

some semi useful updates come out, to add features, then it gets really hacked, and it becomes 10+ updates about protecting it... a year later you get a semi useful update that should have been there from the start, and the chain of useless updates start again...

I really feel sorry for all the nonhackers *that make up 99.1 or so % of the wii owners* who have to deal with this... and the "hackers" whom only did this because 3.3 blocked region free discs, and they just want to play japanese/games they had from other regions =\
