    I was in the middle of the download for the new system update when I noticed that the download bar is no longer moving, and hasn't moved for the past hour. What are my options at this point?

    Update Locked Up

    Same problem here. I got my Wii conected to the Internet and tried doing the update then it locks up. Let it run over night and it's position hasn't changed. Can I restart it without causing problems with my Wii?

    This happened to me, i turned off the wii and turn it back on. It did not brick my wii, the update was done it just froze somehow

    Trust me on this: Power down your wii, unplug the power cord from your wii, then plug it back on, turn your wii on.

    Everything will be okay, its happened to me i also worried and did what i just said and my wii is fine, not bricked.

    EDIT: If you don't trust me then just phone nintendo, but if i was you do what i say.

    EDIT2: If you do brick your wii from doing what i said don't blame me

    Yeah, you will be fine by turning it off and starting over. The Wii doesn't update as it downloads, it downloads then updates. It's like canceling a PC download and nothing happens because it was just receiving the information. Now if you turn it off during the installation process.....:incazzato:

    No. The other people were just saying that during a recent update (perhaps the internet channel), the Wii froze halfway through. They were just asking if it was okay to reset it and try again.

    me 2

    I have almost the same problem. After an hour of trying to get the Wii to connect to the internet, it finally was successful and asked me if I wanted to download the update. I said sure, and now, 2 hours later, the progress bar has moved about an inch, and it looks like it stopped.:frown2: I'll try powering it down and unplugging it.
