Am I wrong in thinking this page isn't supposed to be tech support for System Menu 4.0? Having tech support questions in here just encourages more people to ask. I propose that these types of questions be removed from this page. -- [[User:MetaFight|MetaFight]] 03:40, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

How does downgrading below 4.0 brick the Wii? Does 4.0 burn a fuse in OTP? I don’t have an Infectus installed so I don’t want to LLB by accident. [[User:Hallowizer|Hallowizer]] ([[User talk:Hallowizer|talk]]) 05:04, 4 May 2021 (CEST)

Wow, that's fairly neat that the HBC launches from the SD card directly. Not that it makes a huge difference, since you have to have the channel installed in the first place before it can be copied to the SD card in the correct (and signed) format for your Wii to launch it. But still, that's awesome.
 
 
 
Not that it actually launches from the SD card. It copies it to the wii, runs it, and deletes it when you quit. --[[User:11rcombs|11rcombs]] 06:04, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
 
 
 
So, any word on whether or not 4.0 includes any code that updates the Wii automatically? It's occured to me that the update to the network policy might well have been to clarify the things that Wii Connect 24 already do, which is to update content for the News and Forecast channel and other WC24 enabled channels. I dunno, perhaps their legal jargon was challenged at some point and they had to rewrite it, unless there's evidence that they're putting that change to use anywhere?--[[User:Thegamefreak0134|Thegamefreak0134]] 03:47, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

== System Menu 4.0 and HomeBrew SD Card? ==
 
 
 
Can someone clarify how this update affects a Homebrew enabled SD Card? I am personally worried that, although there is mention of the update not affecting previous installs, there is nothing about whether the update re-formats the SD, or overwrites the file system of the SD! Obviously a full SD backup is recommended, but is it a must???
 
 
 
:The update itself does nothing at all with the SD Card, so anything you stored on it will still be there after the update.

IOS 61 '''IS''' used for the new shop channel. I installed the the ios 61 wad dump and the shop channel was able to work. and i was able to download the upgrade of the wii speak channel thru the new shop channel and it worked perfectly. no problems. no errors. no conflict. i am running 3.2U please dont erase that small change or revert it. installing ios 61 and the new shop channel wad was the only way for me to see if it will work. I am not talking about anything illegal because i enjoy being on 3.2u and do buy my games legit thru the shop channel. that is the only reason why i did what i did.

Done. Maybe I was a bit too harsh, but I couldn't see how any of these comments had anything to do with the System Menu 4.0 page.

Downgrade protection

How does downgrading below 4.0 brick the Wii? Does 4.0 burn a fuse in OTP? I don’t have an Infectus installed so I don’t want to LLB by accident. Hallowizer (talk) 05:04, 4 May 2021 (CEST)

I think that it's related to hardware revisions; see Timing is everything (the case of the “unsoftmoddable Wii”) (specifically, "Two PCB revs were made at the end of 2008/beginning of 2009 — all of these Wiis shipped with the “new” IOSes and boot2v4, and do not seem to work well with older versions of IOS"). That's not consistent with the "if you have updated through Nintendo" part though. --Pokechu22 (talk) 06:44, 5 May 2021 (CEST)
” Downgrade will now brick the Wii (only if you have a Wii with 4.0 preinstalled or if you have updated through Nintendo).” - that second part is what I’m confused about. Does using the official update mechanism do some fuse burning? Hallowizer (talk) 06:53, 5 May 2021 (CEST)
EDIT: oh didn’t see the last bit of the post. Oops. Hallowizer (talk) 06:54, 5 May 2021 (CEST)
I'm guessing that it was added by someone who didn't know what they were talking about. Even if it did write something to OTP, older versions would need to check for it, and although I haven't done any kind of research into that, I'm pretty sure nothing checks it. (I'm also not sure if you're actually able to set additional bits in OTP after some have already been set.)
The phrasing on every other system menu page is "WARNING: Be advised that if your system is shipped with 4.0 preinstalled, you can not downgrade and will brick your console." (and on AnyRegion Changer it's "Downgrading on LU64+ Wii’s (boot2v4) will result in a INSTANT FULL BRICK!").
The preinstalled part was added in July 2009, while the updated through Nintendo part was added by the same user in October. I still find it unlikely that it actually bricks. --Pokechu22 (talk) 19:58, 5 May 2021 (CEST)
