    Those "guides" you found, read them and post your questions in there. Theres alot of threads also dealing with the upgrade. Yes youll lose starfall because starfall only works on 3.2 firmware. I also dont think preloeader works on it either. You can still use a wii without brick proection. You just need to be careful what you do. The only way youll get a true brick (other than banner bricks) is to pop in an out of region disc and upgrade. That will 100% brick the wii. I currently have a 3.2U wii. I can go into system settings and force a nintendo upgrade which will upgrade me to 4.1. That wont brick my wii but ill have alot of headaches with the fact that not all of my homebrew will work, my games wont work because they are all scrubbed copies and 4.1 doesnt support scrubbed games. Just read the tutorials, understand them as best you can, and then ask questions.

    Why do you wish to upgrade to 4.1?
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    well if I think about it I really don't need it do I ?
    well I can have more space for the official wiiware and classic games
    well thats the only reason I think I want to install it...
    but what about bootmii it works as a unbricker or not ?
    I found a post that everything 4.1 works like in 3.2 or maybe I understood it wrong
    because your saying that homebrew will be a pain in the ass on the 4.2 ?
    and I load my games from the HDD not from the cds since my games are scrubbed too

    SD menu is a good feature, I updated for it but then I was on the useless 3.4 system menu.

    Bootmii will work as an unbricker, as does preloader, both of which work on 4.0/4.1. Bootmii can load into the early boot loader of your Wii (boot2) and can be launched before anything else on your Wii, proptecting you from any brick. Boot2 can only be used on older Wiis >1year old. Preloader works differently but can also prtect you.

    Mostly everything will work in 4.0/4.1, just not Starfall which you don't need if you load from HDD.

    If you will update go with one of the safer updates available from Waninkoko which retains all your homebrew features, except starfall. See tutorial for 4.0 http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...l-working.html

    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...7-22-09-a.html what about this guide is it unsafe? it makes you install bootmii and stuff you need... and I have a launch wii console so it shud work ? and I can install home brew after anytime I want or I have to ready the home brew first then upgrade ? and what about my mod chip ? and basically I don't loose anything then ? only some software will be replaced by other ? and what will happen to starfall after upgrade, nothing ?
