Wii System Menu 4.1
Version 4.1 of the System Menu was built on June 24th, 2009 and released on July 3rd, 2009 in Japan, and released in America and Europe on July 15th, 2009.
The announcement lists these changes:
- Fixed a bug with Wii Sports Resort
- Improve system performance
- New version of Nintendo Channel (only in Japan for the moment)
Affected Effect Workaround Copy protected save files (On SD card) Copy protected save files which were copied to the SD card through a previously patched system menu can NOT be copied back. Block it with Preloader or StartPatch
The Homebrew Channel DVDx Bannerbomb
Wii Menu version 4.1 is now available for your Wii console. To update your Wii Menu to the latest version, please select the Update button at the bottom of the screen or select the System Update option in Wii System Settings.
This update provides behind-the-scenes fixes that will not affect features but will improve the overall system performance.
Because unauthorized modifications to save files may impair game play or the Wii console, updating to Wii Menu version 4.1 will also check for and automatically remove such save files.
If you've updated your Wii Menu after 7/15/09, you may not need to update again.
Thank you for updating your Wii console!
Nintendo would like to inform you that a Wii Menu update is now availiable. Select the UPDATE button on the lower-right to update your Wii console. You can also update by selecting Wii SYSTEM UPDATE in the Wii Settings.
When the Wii Menu is updated, save data or program files that are detected as having been created by unauthorised means may be deleted from the Wii system Memory, as they may damage your console and/or cause interference with game play. Please note that Nintendo cannot guarantee that unlicenced software or accessories will continue to function with the Wii console after this or future updates to the Wii Menu.
Note: If you have already updated your Wii console since 16 July 2009, you do not need to update again.

blocking 4.1 upgrade
Hi, sorry, but its rare i have net access these days and I can't find a straight answer! so - My situation: i have a twilight hacked wii, downgraded to ver 3.2e, homebrew 1.0.1, starfall installed. I play my back-ups thru Gamma Channel.
Everything working great.
So far starfall has done a great job blocking any disc or net updates, but with this new update, i've been to scared to connect to the net or buy any new games that may update, thus rendering my back-ups useless (and possibly my wii).
My questions: is there a new 'starfall' to block the update, that I can install via sd? and will this allow me to play online, new games and old back-ups?
Thanks heaps to anyone who can guide me in the right direction/tutorial section.
@anitag starfall is only good on firmware 3.2. if you update at all, youll lose starfall. Instead, youll need to download and install preloader which does the same thing. Im in the same boat as you are. I have my wii at 3.2U and dont want to upgrade. Every single burned game I have is a scrubbed version and if I upgrade, I wont be able to play any of those. It would be great if I could upgrade knowing everything that worked before on my system would still work perfectly, but I look at it this way. If its not broken dont fix it. I even have games that require updates but still work on the system.

thanks for quick reply! so I just find the latest version of preloader and load that on to replace starfall and all its blocking capabilities? Should I remove starfall first? Then i'm good to keep playing back-ups and new games thru gamma loader? Almost sounds too easy...
doe s wad manager work on it
