It looks as if the new Wii firmware update isn't just killing consoles! It also seems to be killing some Wii systems themselves according to reports on the internet.
<blockquote>Although initial reports suggested that the latest Wii update automatically only removes traces of the homebrew channel, there seems to be a much larger issue: Itâ€™s breaking some consoles.
The main issue lies in the actual update process. A program that allows the Wii to boot properly â€“ boot2 â€“ has also been upgraded but it apparently has a high chance of causing write errors. Because of this, some people are experiencing a frozen download screen when trying to download menu 4.2. The Wii will not respond if itâ€™s frozen, and when you take the plug outâ€¦Nothing will happen when you boot it back up. This incident doesnâ€™t seem to be happening to every Wii owner, but it looks like this could be a pretty significant problem nonetheless.</blockquote>
