    Use New Super Mario Bro Wii to safely upgrade to FW 4.1

    Here is what I am trying to accomplish:

    Virgin Wii on firmware 3.4
    1. bannerbomb
    2. cIOS249
    3. preloader
    4. Neogamma
    5. use NSMBW and Neogamma to load the system update contained on the disk, safely upgrading to FW 4.1

    anyone know how to do this? steps 1-4 are easy enough, but i dont know how to get get neogamma to NOT skip the update. the game plays fine with neogamma but just goes straight into the game, skipping the update. This would is great under normal circumstances, but I am looking for all the advantages of a simple offline firmware updater, and this seems like a good method.

    thats true, but to my knowledge firmware_updater_4.1 will brick you if you forget to install a patched copy of IOS60. and it requires an internet connection.

    I have seen offline firmware updaters, but nothing seems as easy as clicking yes to a system update off a disk.

    to comfort u from fear and panic, the alternative would be
    1. download a batch of IOS wad files
    2. apply WAD Manager to install the IOSs, firstly the essentials and later, as required
    3. apply Gecko_1.9.3 to play ur ISO. let gecko to prompt and help u to install IOS for the game
    4. keep the status util u're comfortable for an official 4.x upgrade

    does Gecko_1.9.3 run games off WBFS drive?
    can i get HDSD support without 4.1?

    my main motivation for 4.1 is to get the SD channel
