Wii Modders Do Not Update: System Update 4.2 Released

To all those Wii modders who have either soft modded or hard modded their Wii, do not update to system 4.2 that was released yesterday. All traces of your bootloader for will be removed from your Wii with the new firmware and most ways to soft mod are blocked.
Wii System Update 4.2

Nintendo’s release notes say:

Unauthorized Modifications
Because unauthorized channels or firmware may impair game play or the Wii console, updating to Wii Menu version 4.2 will check for and automatically remove such unauthorized files. In addition, there are some behind the scenes enhancements that do not affect any prominently-used features or menus but will improve system performance.

So all you modders out there, don’t update to the latest firmware. Besides, the only benefit is an updated shop channel that will connect. The older version of the Wii shop channel will be disabled from connecting.

    Hi, so is there a way to connect to the Wii Shop Channel without updating, as my Wii is hardmodded and every time I try to access the Shop Channel it asks me to update?
