September 28, 2009 // 11:54 pm - 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 some cases 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)."

Does it block the bannerboom exploit as well ? Is it on 4.2 impossible to install the homebrew channel or cIsos ??

Hi again I have another question is it possible to update my WII to 4.1 E (I'm in Germany)
Without being online ? I have the Homebrew channel ? Isn't there a wad with 4.1 E or something else ( I need it for WII Sports Resort)??
