Title: Wii System Menu 4.3 (HBC Updated!)
Post by: Vyse on September 28, 2009, 09:10:30 PM
Hackmii Installer .7 (http://hackmii.com/2010/07/hackmii-installer-v0-7/)

Compatible with 4.3! If you've already updated, you'll require some work-around method or to install again with either Smash Stack or Indiana Pwns (http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_channel#Prerequisites).

If I may say, it's absolutely beautiful. -picano

-----------

EVEN WORSE THAN 4.2.

Do not update if you want to keep your Homebrew. 4.3 does a better job of deleting it and making sure you can't get it back.

http://wiibrew.org/wiki/System_Menu_4.3

If you want to continue using the Shop Channel, use WiiSCU (http://wiibrew.org/wiki/WiiSCU). (Thanks, mnsg!)

Well no one should have updated anyway, only and idiot would have.

Prepare for a barrage of  topics saying, HOW DO I GET HOMEBREW ON 4.2???

I wasn't going to update at all. This just reminded me to turn off wiiconect24 because I don't know if that will download it by itself. (Just wanted to be safe.)

I've heard that the 4.1 update doesn't actually contain any code that will let Nintendo update your Wii when you're not looking.

Still, I keep WiiConnect24 off at all times.

Soon as I saw "unauthorized software" in the system message, I knew it was going for my HBC. You can't fool me that easily!

Indeed, brother. As I see it, hacks is what makes the wii actually worth purchasing rather than just playing it at a friend's house. Nintendo should embrace the hackers. Maybe even invite them over for some tasty tea and crumpets.

http://gonintendo.com/viewstory.php?id=98610

Well, they finally did it. Nintendo got rid of the Homebrew Channel...kinda. Apparently the update removes the Homebrew Channel, but you can easily reinstall it using Indian Pwns or the Brawl Stage Builder exploit. Anyway, I intend on updated my Wii as soon as I have access to wi-fi that works for it, so I need to know if the SD loader and everything will still work. Has anyone updated yet, and are any Brawl-related hacks affected?

ok I'll admit, I have a couple of pirated games and all the others games I backed up onto my terrabyte HDD. I buy the games I support like The Conduit, Dead Space Extraction, Mario games, Zelda games, Pokemon Games Pretty much all the major francises and people actually trying to change the wii's image to a mature system and not a shovelware system.

Ever since I accidentally deleted my Homebrew after updating to 4.0, I've been more cautious about my System Menu after getting it back.  I'm making sure that I stay at 4.0.

But there are no positive aspects to this update whatsoever.

I just don't understand, I guess.

I can't stay at 4.1, I have to update. I can't live with having an out of date Wii. I know, it sounds dumb. It just bugs me a lot. Unfortunately (or fortunately, because it gives me more time to see if it's 100% safe or not...), I can't connect my Wii to the wi-fi where I'm at, so I can't update. >_>

What do you mean offers less? If you mean less as in less homebrew, that doesn't matter to me. The only homebrew I use is Gecko OS for Brawl. I just hate knowing that there's an update for my system out there that I don't have yet. I guess it's just a little OCD thing I have.


Title: Re: Wii Menu 4.2
Post by: VILE on September 29, 2009, 08:11:01 AM
It offers the exact same as 4.1, but without any homebrew capabilities. You wont even be able to use gecko or play burnt games, just about the only game you will still be able to use codes on it brawl and even that is an annoying process to go through every time you need to test something.

Yeah, neither have I... I heard it just removes the Homebrew Channel, which you can easily reinstall with the Smash Stack Stage Builder exploit.

Making that damn Battery is equally impossible now, All new boughten PSP's are at firmware 5.0 or higher.

If you buy an used one its usually already updated.

My PSP died entirely, it wasn't bricked, a change in battery didn't do anything, so I don't have homebrew on it anymore.  :oshi:

Most games don't include firmware in Wii games. Usually it just adds some needed files to the Wii's memory and if it does there is a code that disables the update.

You might want to look at a post that I found out about.

Quote from: dhewg
Quote from: bushing
The [boot 2 update] code [from Ninty] is so buggy that we decided to write our own for the HackMii installer.

It’s really sad, but that wasn’t exaggerated at all. The first reports about bricks due to this official boot2 update are reported on Nintendo’s forums. Replies, which Ninty doesn’t like, are getting deleted. Anyway, it’s up to you if you want to risk it.

Anyone who's stupid enough to upgrade to 4.2 may end up bricking their Wii systems.  In other words. DO NOT upgrade your System Menu through Nintendo if you know what's good for you.

Fortunately for me, I'm still on 4.0.

If possible, try to get this information onto the primary post to warn anyone that plans on upgrading their Wiis.

Ya should look at Marcans blog.

Haven't found those quotes of bricking yet.

http://hackmii.com/2009/09/wii-menu-4-2-a-lack-of-imagination/

EDIT: Found. After the bullets, first paragraph.

Quote from: Marcan
I’m surprised that they took the bold move of pushing an updated boot2 — I guess all of the cool kids are doing it these days. Their boot2-updating code (ES_ImportBoot) is not well-tested; they’ve never updated boot2 on retail consoles before, and in our testing we discovered that it often fails to write out ECC data for the new version of boot2 that it writes. We should expect to see some number of bricked Wiis from this; the code is so buggy that we decided to write our own for the HackMii installer. If you had BootMii/boot2 installed, it will be overwritten with the normal, stock boot2, but there should be no other harmful effects.

I needed 4.0 to get access to the Shop Channel. But it might be that MM came out before the newer Shop Channel, or you just got a .wad.

another question:

If Nintendo comes out with an OS that works for us in the future, will we be able to skip past 4.2 and strait to the good one?

thats a very good question sir. im guessing 4.3 will also fcuk up ur wii and delete homebrew.

Well for those who don't know yet, since my Homebrew Channel updated, I went ahead and decided to do the Wii update myself.

Not surprisingly, Homebrew stayed once the update completed.

So I think it's ok to install the wii update now.
(Though I still do not suggest turning off the power during said update)

It might be "OK," but there's no reason to do it.

If you don't desperately need access to the shop channel, don't update, because all you're doing is risking a brick.

sooo i herd that 4.2 wont delete HBC but itll mess up preloader and bootmii so its not recommended.

BUT what worries me are the new games coming later in the future (NSMBW, Metroid, SMG2)
Will they have that madatory system update? I know that brawl made u upgrade to 3.4 and Metroid Prime 3 got u to ...3.2 i believe?

And i know someone will say "just download the ios and use usb loader" but i want to actually play them and own the disc. So im asking: do u think that those games will come with the system update? (New Super Mario Bros Wii might but i doubt it...)

Oizen, you clearly don't know anything about Homebrew apps. Starfall, as mentioned, is good, as are things like FTPii. Backup launcher and USB Loader are homebrew apps. DVDx and a media player can turn your Wii into a (sorta crappy, but serviceable) DVD player.

List goes on, but I've made my point.

Yeah the app is Gecko OS no USB Gecko lol I know very little about the apps. but staying in topic. i installed DVDx on mi Wii. Then I inserted a DVD in my Wii and it still wouldn't read it. Is there something else I gotta install?

No one has ever shorten, and combined the names of two apps. He obviously was mentioning only Gecko OS, since I've seen a lot of people get confused between a USB Gecko, and Gecko OS.

For Starfall, it only works on 3.2U, and 3.2E. It blocks disc updates, allow region free channels, get rid of that annoying Wii BGM, recovery mode etc.

cuz not every n64 game can be wadded. games like bomberman64, mystical ninja, EVERY RARE GAME (b&k, diddy kong racing, goldeneye)

I don't see why it's an issue. I got my Wii with 3.3, and downgraded to 3.2U. It's going to stay that way, permanently. I don't care if my system menu is older, since it actually works with no retarded protection. 4.0 introduced NOTHING useful to the Wii; even the SD card thing is utterly pointless, and I don't see why anyone would want it.

What I'm saying is, don't bother yourself with updated. You'll just screw yourself over. If your current system menu works, just update your cIOS and call it a day.

...even the SD card thing is utterly pointless, and I don't see why anyone would want it.

Although, I can see why it is useless since people can download the games back again after purchasing them, but to some having the SD Menu to transfer and access your WiiWare games and VC through that channel which I find it convenient, specially if you want to save space for the Wii for other channels and whatnot. Not to mention the usage of SDHC, which I use to watch my shows and movies.

I do agree there is no point in upgrading to 4.1 or 4.2, whatever the choice may be stay with 4.0 and below.

Because there's no wads for getting the songs for Guitar Hero or Rock Band (Especially Beatles when that has songs up for download in a couple weeks). I can't add points unless I go into the shop channel, at least to my knowledge.

Otherwise, I wouldn't really care until a good VC game comes out like SSB64. (And no, I don't like using emulators and roms on my wii)

Example: I fucking love Earthbound but when it came out i was like 3 years old and my older brothers didnt like rpgs yet plus we didnt have 80 bucks. So obviously ive been playing roms of  the game which is ok i guess... but i want the cart and the guide.

I'd rather not risk any chance of brick after it almost happened a few months ago.
Because whenever I click on 'Update' on the main menu of HBC, it tries to but fails to update. And I also don't want to update HBC unless I have to, since it works fine for me at the moment.

Updating the HBC can't brick your Wii. And you can always download the newest version from WiiBrew and install it manually. HBC 1.0.4 and below won't work on Wii Menu 4.2.

I dont intend to update my wii to 4.2, but I have a few questions.

1) I only have the homebrew channel and I ONLY use it for texture hacks and Brawl+.
If for some reason I wanted to update my wii to 4.2, if i removed every trace of hacks and HBC I could, would it be safe to update if i did that?

2) I have 4.1, is it safe to download games from the wii shop channel?

according to http://www.destructoid.com/wii-update-may-be-bricking-innocent-consoles-150539.phtml

In there exact words:

"Remember the new firmware update which Nintendo just sent out to do away with all those nasty people who have been running the Homebrew Channel? You know, another one of those feeble attempts to lock something down which the hacking community will have found a workaround to with in a couple of days?

Well, it's already been worked around for those of you who don't mind voiding your warranty, but we all knew that was going to happen. Where the actual news comes in is that there have been reports of the update rendering perfectly normal, unmodified Wii consoles inert.

The issue seems to be occurring during the downloading process. Reports on NeoGAF and Nintendo's technical support forum claim that the download is freezing before completing and then will not reboot. Word is that the changes to one of the programs is causing write errors which prevent the system from starting up.

To their credit, Nintendo has already addressed the issue in a statement on their support forum (who says hackers are the only ones who can work quickly in these situations?). They claim that the issues are predominately occurring on modified consoles but have offered assistance in the form of free repairs to Wii owners who have never -- even unwittingly -- participated in such shenanigans as doing what they wish with the product they spent their money to own.

This is what we refer to as "collateral damage." "

Well I tried it I updated my Wii to system Menu 4.2 seems like I can run Homebrew apps but haven't tested them yet. However if you currently play Brawl+5.0 from the SD card the Homebrew + Gecko OS trick doesn't work anymore. You have to use the StageBuilder thing from Brawlplus.net which in terms sorta blows due to no custom music, or textures atleast thats how its going with mine currently at the moment. Hopefully Nintendo will release another update which will fix this or maybe the Wiibrew team can find a way around this.

And yes I even tried copying my old files over and those didn't work either

Is it possible for something to be made that gets rid of the nearly-forced update thing?  By this I mean, when I get NSMBW, it won't say I need to update.  I'm not complaining about using Gecko, because I use that all the time for Brawl, but it'd be a lot more convenient to run it normally.


Title: Re: Wii System Menu 4.2
Post by: SvenStryphart on November 14, 2009, 10:12:50 PM
um i really don't think that  theres a way to prevent it since nintendo does what sony does on some of the games automatically putting the firmware in the disc. But overall Bannerbombv2 does work and majority of my stuff is working now my emulators and roms, and Skins and musics are working. If you run Gecko OS it works you just need the 1.9.3 version.

Here is a link of how to get it.
http://wiird.l0nk.org/forum/index.php/topic,4375.0.html (http://wiird.l0nk.org/forum/index.php/topic,4375.0.html)

Besides BannerbombV1 not working and Gecko 1.9.2. 1.9.2b not working with 4.2 there really isn't much. However the reason why I updated mine is (Not sure if True) but if you load NSMBW through some form of Gecko I guess the game would randomly freeze. I'm not sure if this for all forms of Gecko or if its just past versions or if its just USB Gecko. But I really don't feel like "State Saving" or whatever its called everytime I beat a stage.

You can run it through a program which gets rid of the Update Partition.  Sadly, I can't remember what it's called.

everyone should have bootmii just in case something happens like wat happened to u. When u get a new wii install bootmii on it and back up ur Wii's NAND. Using that u can install any system menu on it thats in ur region. As long as u have bootmii installed as boot 2 (I dont recommend installing it as an IOS) U can restore ur Wii when it gets bricked

AFAIK the only time an update has bricked systems was the old 4.2, which replaced the boot2 to try to get rid of BootMii. I don't think it does that anymore, because it could brick consoles without homebrew as well.
Nintendo doesn't want to break your Wii, they just want to get rid of homebrew.

I'd like to point out that Wii System Menu 4.3 has been released.

http://wiibrew.org/wiki/System_Menu_4.3 (http://wiibrew.org/wiki/System_Menu_4.3)

This System Menu is a major Homebrew killer, unlike System Menu 4.2, so DO NOT update your Wii at this time.

Edit: If you want to update the Wii Shop Channel, get hold of the WiiSCU (http://wiibrew.org/wiki/WiiSCU) Hombrew application.  Newest version is 0.24, which lets you choose which version of the Shop Channel to install, ranging between v19 and v25; latest version is v19.

Your right, no new content was added, but we all know the new games coming out will all make you update, so you'll have to play them through gecko, but eventually we'll get past nintendo and they'll update to 4.4, etc.

Connect24 does not download any new updates. I always have mines on all the time to get messages from online friends, it doesn't download any updates. So don't get concern about that. Anybody being in the homebrew wagon, why would it occur to anybody to update anything from Nintendo. You just don't do it. lol That's why you wait for Wakikinoko's firmware updates if you want any beneficial upgrades for your Wii.

It is pointless for them  to release new updates for the task of deleting the homebrew channel. It stops people from having the channel for about 5 minutes before a new exploit is found to work, and nobody will be stupid enough to upgrade without some sort of backup plan on how to get it back; especially when it is offering no new content.

All new wii come with the most updated hardware I got mine in 2008 as well. And started out with 4.2. If she has 4.3 then some had to of done that for her. Nintendo is unable to upgrade her wii. However, on startup, when you get a new wii, they ask if you want automatic updates.

It's Nintendo we're talking about, they put something in their software that makes them capable of updating the wii themselves. Cause they can and they will if they are sure that you hack.
How they find that out, i have no idea but they do...

Ok, so the automatic updater, is very similar to windows. If they have something important,and you have the automatic updater on, they can because you let them.

Trough Wiishop, Playing Online, Leaving your wii on stanby(when your wiis led is orange), Aids, Accidently clicking yes, might also happen trough something you download or even come with a new game

And I doubt it would come with a new game >_> The only things they COULD upgrade through games would be how the system handles graphics/controls etc, at least that's my guess.  Otherwise I doubt they'd waste the ISO space XP

Yeah what upgrade was it when the clock apppeared? lol

And no, if you pick no when they ask you if you want to update they can't update it BY LAW. Their license agreement would contradict itself, because they're taking away a privilage that they gave you (the ability to decide) if they did do that. I guess they could Ghetto fix that

I've been on 4.0 for a while and I know people who are still on 3.4.

There are many ways around updating. Gecko OS for instance can load games and install required IOS (skipping the installation of the disk menu). There have been many patchers / "safe" updaters created.

It may be a bit of a hassle... but its possible to avoid.

I'm not updating >_> unless that update letter says something besides "This update does not affect features but does some 'behind the scenes'   work that improves 'system performance' overall. If you updated before *insert last update date here* you may not need to update again" I'm not buying [censored].

Gee nintendo why not just go out and say it. "YOU MOTHER ***ING HACKERS TAKE THAT!" *chimed evilly*

D'oh [censored], 4.3 got updated. Question is, is it safe?

It updates the Wii Shop Channel, but leaves the HBC untouched if your HBC version is compatible with System Menu 4.3.

There is one drawback with the update however.  It updates IOS37, which is what Riivolution uses.  If you do this update and try to run Riivolution, you'll be asked to downgrade IOS37.  However, if you try to downgrade that IOS, you'll end up with the following error message...


Code:
Error installing. (-1035)
The installation did not complete successfully.
Press Home to exit.

RVLution forum member, Aaron, told me that I'll have to wait until Riivolution 1.031 is released, as Riivolution 1.03 won't work at all.  Basically, if you're a Riivolution user, avoid updating for now.  Not sure if this affects the latest version of Gecko OS though.

...the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act states that warrantors cannot require that only branded parts be used with the product in order to retain the warranty, this does not apply as the Homebrew Channel is software, not a physical computer part.

On top of that, let's add this. They may as well change the license agreement to it xD

By purchasing this product you agree to the terms of service and the following. At any given time Nintendo will frequently update the wii software and hardware. This is an optional(but suggested) part of the agreement. By Clicking I accept you agree to the terms of service and nintendo has the permission to update and/or remove software from your system without your consent at any given time. This software that can be removed is anything not provided with the purchase of this system (IE we get to screw with your preacious Homebrew) and/or not sponsered by nintendo or it's respected partners.

The only reason I'd like to update it is so I can go into the Wii shop channel this coming week to get Sonic 4, otherwise I wouldn't bother.

Sorry for bumping this topic! >_>

You must've been using an older version of the HBC then.  The current version is compatible with the 4.3 System Menu, and is unaffected by the current Wii updates.

On a side note, all that the Donkey Kong Country Returns update does is stub certain IOSes.  You can easily bypass this update with Gecko OS, or by using a USB Loader program, like WiiFlow.

my wii didnt ask for update (its currently 4.1)  I used priiloader to disable the disc-based update requirement (when going online without priiloader blocking online updates, the game may block you from online gaming until you update....)
