    Question about Wii System Menu Updates.

    Hi!
    I have bought a nintendo wii and iīm waiting for it to arrive.
    Itīs a second-hand Wii, and the guy i bought it from said that he haveīnt used it for a while.. So hopefully it wont have firmware 4.3. But if it has an old firmware, for example 3.1 or something. And i want to upgrade, but only upgrade to 4.2 not the latest 4.3 is it possible, and if so, how?

    Is it softmodded?
    Games aren't reliant on sm but it would be advised to update to 4.1.
    4.2 and 4.3 sm's were brought out purely to kill any hb you may have installed on your wii.

    Mauifrogs mod any wii guide will softmod you and also upgrade you to 4.1 if on a lower system menu or if you are on 4.3 you can downgrade.
    There is a ios update pack in the guide as well which will give you the latest ios's if you wish to play a newer original game through the disc channel.

    When using a usb loader the games is loaded through your cios and not ios.

    Yes to 4.1 which is the desired system menu as stated 4.2 and 4.3 are hb killers and with 4.3 you will need a game to install hb.
