Updating your wii
You will need to have an active internet connection to download the update first, so make sure that the Wii is connected to your home network.
Be sure to check for upgrades every so often so that you have the latest features!
It is really nice to have all my old games in one console.
Uh, well last spring-ish (2009), I heard about this game Super Mario War Wii and I wanted to play it, so since you can't run anything on your Wii without this homebrew application that Nintendo does not release through retail or Wii Shop, you can't play it.
According to the people who have developed HBC, the code for Nintendo's updated boot2 is prone to making write errors, therefore making the possibility of bricking your Wii extremely high, whether or not you have ever hacked or modified your Wii."Nintendo tech support is telling consumers with out-of-warranty consoles that the cost of repairs will have to come out of their pocket, however Nintendo officials have remained quiet in regards to the overall infliction caused by the update.
However, if this becomes another "red ring of death" situation, Nintendo may change its mind and fix "bricked" consoles on the company dime instead.
Dagnabbit, this was a nice alternative to having to pull out my NES, SNES, Genesis and other old consoles weekly.
I was looking around in the Wii Shop channel for Rondo of blood and was going to buy it, but the console asked me to update, and said yes, and now it effectively killed my wii system.
This includes homebrew tools, applications, games, and emulators.The company has announced that they will soon be releasing version 4.3 of the Wii Menu, which will be primarily design to remove homebrew channels from the system.“Because unauthorized channels or firmware may impair game play or the Wii console, updating to Wii Menu version 4.3 will check for and automatically remove such unauthorized files,” Nintendo wrote in a message that was posted on their support site.That means the following: “Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience”.Prior to today, Wii U’s last update was in September 2018.
