I removed my homebrew before I updated. Everything was fine. After the update, my Wii doesn't play games anymore. Only my Wiiware.

I'm gonna send them an email. <_<

You know you could of just moved your Homebrew to an SD card, update your Wii, and then put the Homebrew back in?

Why? I wasn't using it. Plus, that wouldn't work.

Wrong.
 
You guys are seriously dumb if you upda with Homebrew installed. If you were smart enough you could always wait for a patch then wipe your wii clean then cleanly install the Homebrew. Nintendo always has a patch waiting for patch Homebrew but it will never happen as the makers know their away around the bypass.

@ Kyel
I'm sorry to say but Tyeforce beat you to the post.
 
Did you have the SD card with your boot.elf, or whatever it is, in the SD card? That could be one reason. Also, they said in the warning, if they detected "such software" you wii could "immediately become inoperable".
 
my wii broke too but it was right before the 4.3 update (i have homebrew) in the middle of the day the disc reader just broke. I later got my bro's friend to look at it (computer boy :D) and he said the hardware is messed up.my mom later sent it to nintendo and they blamed it on the HOMEBREW CHANNEL? like the software damaged the hardware?

Wrong.
Acually your Wrong Kyel Homebrew is a installed application the Channel is just a launcher for it when you Update It removes the installed files and the channel then you can still have the channel but you won't be able to launch it.

No, you can't even reinstall the channel after the 4.3 update.

Wait... I think I can install 98 on windows 7... just takes a little extra effort :p

and yeah the homebrew people constantly find ways around whatever Nintendo sets up...

Well, doing something illegal usually results in bad consequences.
