    I see that the full version of the internet channel has recently been released but Ive been hesitant about downloading it because it requires doing a system update. I dont have a modchip installed cause I'm kind of waiting for a softmod. You never know what Nintendo is putting in those updates. they could be installing something on my system that would prevent a softmod from working later on (like the PSP). I could use some advice on whether I should do the update. Thanks in advance.

    I don't think the updates would be a problem with modding in any way.

    I did a system update right after my Wii-Key was installed. No problems. Besides, Wii-Key runs in stealth mode.

    internet --> system updates would be fine even with a modchip without the stealth mode feature (im using wi-ic and it doesnt have stealth mode but the update was successful ;) its a sucky modchip though)

    ok. but like i said i dont have a modchip and im not planning on getting one because im waiting for some kind of softmod to come out. and im just thinking that the updates might fix some kind of hole in the system that would have enabled a softmod to work.

    @Markman29

    If you are going on the notion of not updating the system due to it preventing you from using a softmod in the future then there is 1 problem you will find yourself running into.

    Your game selection will be limited due to Nintendo putting the system updates on newer game titles. Example: (Paper Mario) Which will install the update automatically to the newer version if your version is lower then what is on the game disc.

    This already has become a problem with some Wii owners with region free modchips installed. Some users have bricked their Wii due to playing an NTSC game disc (Paper Mario) on their PAL system without updating their system. Paper Mario did a system update and flashed the NTSC system update on their PAL unit which then bricked their Wii due to region lock on the hardware of the system.

    It is important to keep your Wii updated if you have a modchip installed. If you do not want to update your Wii due to a softmod that could be exploited later in time then you will need to know what titles have the system update on them and stay away from those game titles.

    IMO i think it would be safe to update now since there is still no softmods out yet and when it comes out they would be able to bypass the security of the updates nintendo got right now.. (in my opinion only) :)
