    4.1U and my drivekey started giving me problems (I can't access the drivekey config anymore). I guess Nintento is hardly working on something to crash the drivekey.

    I have 4.1 and my drivekey menu seems to work fine as of now, i can also play trucha signed games from the disk menu, install and play wads from the sd menu. I've got the best of both worlds with a hard/soft mod.

    Yep, the Drive Key config menu works just fine under 4.1. You must be doing something wrong, or you have a bad installation.

    its always good to at least have the hbc. never know when u might need it for something. in my situation i dont even need preloader installed. however its easily removable, and acts as a safety net if something happens to ur system. for example, i disconnected my internet during a system update, and had no system menu. if i didnt have preloader installed it woulda been a different story, but since i did have preloader i was able to launch hbc and download new firmware through it. so having a few softmods is actually benefitial, even if u have a modchip.


    Hey, Im fairly new to all this wii modding. I did some research and now going to order new drivekey. I have 3.2U firmware version on my wii now without any softmodes installed.
    So do i understand correctly - granted i dont do any firmware updates , i can play scrubbed games with drivekey intalled?

    And another question: do I still need to update my wii to play latest game (lets say they have 4.0 or 4.1 update on disk with the game(new mario bros game) or i just refuse to update and play that way?

    Thanks

    to me, it seems like with the current drivekey, will work fine on a new system with version 4.1u right?

    heres the thing, i had an older wii with version 3.4u with drivekey only. no hbc or any other softmod because i'm still new at this... if i tried to play the new super marios bros on it and ask me to update to version 4.1u will all my backup games work? (i'm assuming scrubbed, is backup games right?)

    for my new system it was version 4.0u and i bought the original new super mario bros game and updated to version 4.1u... now, if i install the drivekey on it can i still play my other, old backup games? do i have to wait for a firmware update for the drivekey? or would it be fine with the drivekey because i have the original copy of nsmb?

    just curious...

    You shouldn't have a problem playing your backups with 4.1u, mine works just fine. The only problem was with the NSMB backup, but since you have the original you should be good.
