    upgrading Homebrew from 1.0.6 to 1.1.2

    Hi everyone! So I was able to soft-mod my Wii many years back (back in 2009-2010) and it worked great (I'm essentially a n00b, so I impressed myself). The Wii was collecting dust for a while and I didn't play it for a couple of years, but I recently reconnected the guy and want to get the best out of it again. I browsed Wiibrew and noticed that there have more updates and versions released, and I think the possibility of even updating from Nintendo. I just want to figure out how best to upgrade everything, including upgrading my Homebrew, and get any recommended additions. I also want to get the Homebrew browser to work! Anyway, here's all the details I know, and any insight/advice on how to go about this would be appreciated (I did look at the "Softmod ANY Wii" guide and it wasn't clear to me where or how best to start to do this):

    Wii Version 3.2U

    When I go to the Hombrew channel, I've got the following on my SD card:

    cIOS 222 installer v4 (cIOS for uLoader) (not sure what this is)
    Configurable USB Loader (still works)
    Homebrew browser (does not work)
    FCE Ultra GX (NES emulator, works)
    SNES0x GX (SNES emulator, works)
    apps/IOS249/boot.dol (not sure what this is)

    And when I click the "Home" button on the Homebrew channel, it tells me that it's version 1.0.6, IOS36 v.4.1.8, and on the upper left it says "network not initiated." Any recommendations/insight/advice what to do and what to get to get everything updated and working would be very much appreciated! Would be great to get the Homebrew browser working. Thanks in advance!

    You can follow the guide and start where is says "with homebrew already installed" however it won't do any harm to start from scratch. A lot of progress has been made since your last mod. DVD backups are still able to work if you have gamecube ports, but, usb loading is far superior. I'm unable to link guides as I can't seem to get it to work from my phone but there are guides for wiiflow, USBLoader GX and a FAT32 guide is also a good place to look after you've modded your wii. You may also want to check out the usb compatibility guide.
    Find the guides in a mods signature.
    Good luck

    Not entirely true. DVD loading only works if the system was made before the internal hardware changes somewhere in 2008. GameCube port-systems were available up until holiday season 2011.

    But for the OP, check out the Softmod Any Wii guide and FAT32 guides as miiwi stated. Both, in addition to other guides that may interest you, are linked in my signature.

    Don't forget to get the app pack in chapter 3, your apps are going to be out of date as well and that will get you started on a more recent set of apps.

    Thanks miiwi and llafer! I actually got the HBC to self auto-update to a more recent version (clicked the globe icon and it worked!) but it didn't update to the most recent version. Also got the HB browser to work! I will look into the guides you mentioned -- I am hoping to both get the latest HB-related apps as well as upgrading the Wii to 4.3. I'm guessing that means a fresh install of everything? Do I delete my old installation and start over, or just replace my current install. Thanks to you both again!

    The versions of HBC and Menu that we recommend is 1.1.0 and 4.1.

    The differences between 1.1.0 and 1.1.2 are specifically for the Wii U. While it has been proven over the years that having 1.1.2 is safe to have on Wiis, we were reluctant to endorse it for some time. So if you have 1.1.0, you aren't losing anything by not having 1.1.2.

    And for Wii Menus, 4.1 is the preferred menu since the only functionality added to the menus between 4.1 and 4.3 are anti-softmodding updates. There is no benefit to going to 4.3, as long as your IOSs are up to date, which they would be if you installed the "IOS Update" from Softmod Any Wii guide.

    In general, we don't advise uninstalling, removing, deleting, or formatting anything unless specifically told to by a guide or a staff member (and those will likely be trying to fix a brick or something similarly severe). In your case, following Softmod Any Wii guide and doing all of the optional updates will replace just about everything in the system with what we recommend, so if something was flawed, it would be replaced by the recommended version.
