4.2 and 4.3 add nothing. If you follow the guide completely, updates will be disabled, and you do not need to worry about it at all. There is some discussion in the Wii community about the necessity of the version patched system menu. This is mostly an esoteric discussion, without a whole lot of ramifications one way or the other. I wouldn't be concerned about a version patched 4.1.

Damn you shifty, guess I should stop composing novellas and just hit save.

ok, thankyou. I did follow the instructions to the letter with no problems but will go back and check those update settings in priiloader again just to reassure myself.
Is it poss to revert back as I mentioned before? and is there any functionality lost by doing it?

Revert back to what? A non patched version? You can do whatever you like, but there's no benefit.

OK, shall leave it as it is. Patched 4.1E.
Thanks for your help.

Is the softmod suppose to allow the ability to play backup discs? I softmodded a virgin Wii system and it cannot play my backup discs from the backup disc channel.
