June 22, 2010 // 10:55 pm - Today Nintendo has released Wii System Menu version 4.3, which like past updates isn't homebrew friendly, and so Waninkoko has released a new Firmware Updater to allow users to update their Wii consoles without jeopardizing homebrew channel applications.

Download: Wii Firmware Updater v4.3 / Wii Firmware Updater v4.3 (Bug Fix)

Below are the changes Wii System Menu v4.3 introduces:

• Deletes the Homebrew Channel and DVDX, title IDs HAXX, DVDX, JODI, DISC, and DISK.
• Now uses IOS80.
• IOS254 stubbed BootMii is deleted.
• Fixed Bannerbomb less stupidly this time.
• Added IOS58.
• HackMii Installer Userland+Syscall IOS exploit removed
• ES_AddTitleFinish now checks the signature (Trucha Bug Restorer and similar won't work anymore)

Those who didn't use Waninkoko's application above may encounter "Wii Error:004". According to Nintendo, this error code indicates the system is attempting to load unauthorized software. Unauthorized modifications to save data or program files may impair game play or the Wii console and should be removed.

Right on, I got my savemii yesterday, and well, my wii boots a black screen with 4.3(USA) in the bottom right corner.

so in other words, it's not a full brick, but I'm not sure how I can fix it now. the universal unbrick disc will not boot, maybe I need to buy super mario galaxy 2 with the 4.3 update on it? anyways not sure, I can't find a site with a DVD mod chip on it anymore.

anyways, the gc backup loader did NOT work on any of them. DVD (and some text on top) missing or something.

So, I wanted to see the store too, thought it'd be ok to update.

updated fine, don't need to clarify this again, however it was just menupatcher, I can't even get it to load bootmii or priiloader (which I know I installed)

I ordered a savemii anyways, i hope this lets me fix it. otherwise it's probably going to get trashed. I don't care.

There hasn't been much useful in the official updates for some time now. It's mostly been patches just to stop homebrew. My Wii is currently on 4.0u and there's nothing I can't run.

While I'm not discrediting Waninkoko's work, or saying that his updaters don't work, but there's been many people complaining on other sites that his updates can cause problems as he either doesn't change, or leaves in some of the security features (that disable homebrew) from the official updates.

I've personally had this happen to me using one of his more recent updaters. Luckily I was able to downgrade, but I know I'll never use one of his again. There far too many custome apps and such I run on my Wii to have it messed up from an 'all in one' updater that may overlook some significant security update.

well, I had it all done, upgrade went fine

However it was after I used menupatcher it didn't do anything.
Sadly, I'm off to buy another wii today, but keeping the (bricked?) one in my room. IF there is a way to unbrick it, that'd be nice :]

damn, well I'm in a pickle, I feel totally idiotic posting here but, I bought my grandmother a Wii 2 weeks ago, got it 3 days ago.

It was on 3.4, I had it hacked and all, proceeded to update to 4.3 with this ;],
Great!

Ran menupatcher, and it's bricked, at least I think. What would I need to get this back up and running? I believe I made the mistake of turning off the diag disc check. the unbrick disc doesn't load for me :[

Pahh... the first 3-4 years they did as good as nothing against HB. Even as Team Twiizers told them about the bug in the boot1 they did not change it till yet.

And now they try to kick out HB, bother users with a not bootable Wii so that they have to send it to Nintendo to fix it and have to pay for it and to same time no fix on the boot1 in the OTP in newer Wii's?

Such Big faker - unbelievable.
