    How do you explain that it is only once this update is installed that these things happen?......................
    Nah - it's fine! I've installed both updates, loaded up 2000 points, linked my account with my Nintendo VIP Club account, and downloaded Bomberman, which is AWESOME with 4 other people playing

    Updates are absolutely fine in the EU/UK - if anyone bricks their Wii doing one, then it's going to be a hardware issue...

    Actually I said that because I haven't got wireless connection so suck on it mo'fo!

    And if you did a bit of research you would see that a few consoles have actually f**ked up after downloading the firmware!


    WA**ER!

    I'm pretty sure one of a few things possibly happened here.

    A) your firmware DL was somehow corrupted

    B) during the firmware flash process there was an unexpected error, and perhaps it didn't fully flash the bios

    C) your bios had bad memory sectors, this can cause bios' to possibly read fine from the factory, but not be able to accept a flash properly.

    Any of these problems and you're basically screwed, anytime you update the firmware on any device there is a small chance of something like this happening. Unfortunately if you want to access certain functionality of the Wii such as the online store you MUST update your Wii, unlike updating the firmware on lets say your router where the manufacturer will say don't upgrade the firmware unless you are having problems.

    That's one thing you definately should NOT do!

    Thank God the Wii isn't made by Microsoft!
