    Firmware Updates -- Safe?

    Just bought a Wii a few days ago -- wanted to use the Wii Shop, but it said I needed to get a system update first.

    Is that safe??? I read somewhere online that after the version 4 update, some people experienced random system freezes.

    I'd sure hate to mess up the system I just got.

    FWIW, this Wii came with firmware version 3.4U.

    Sorry for the ignorance; I have NO previous Wii experience...

    Thanks for the answers, folks!

    No mods or anything fancy here -- I'm happy with the system the way it is.

    Well... except that I want to add some of those Virtual Console games...

    I was trying to be funny... didn't work, apparently!

    homebrew generally has no issues when updating the wii menu, unless you're using IOS hacks.
    homebrew itself will not cuse the wii to brick.

    Well, I took the plunge and did the update to 4.1u. I haven't tested it extensively, but -- so far, so good.

    My big concern (system lockup) hasn't occurred... yet!
