I appreciate the wisdom of waiting before adding the latest updates to the guide
Oh, okay, I was just curious because my previous softmod was still on 4.3U. Thank you for replying!

I respectfully disagree with you, and would submit that "correct" is relative. It becomes infinitely easier to support if we get folks softmods into our recommended settings. Now, if you want to update and you understand what you're doing and all the aspects that go into a softmod, you can make intelligent decisions about what to do. If not, it can us (the folks that support you) save a lot of troubleshooting by starting from the beginning. We think about things here from a few different aspects:
* Safety (not bricking)
* Supportability (meaning we know what you have installed)
So, I disagree that both recommendations were inappropriate. I would say that if you want to truly say whats appropriate, you'd want latest homebrew channel/etc, which would not be included in cios pack.
Edit- This is my last word on this. We're already pretty far off the intent of this thread.

Well by correct I mean what the guide advises "In the future, you will only need to update the ciospack". If that's incorrect it should be removed from the guide. On your points though, I would suggest that the chances of bricking are substantially reduced by only updating the ciospack rather than doing the whole (or most of) the guide again and it should be clear what I have installed when I say I followed the guide in full in late December 2011 and then updated to cios-pack-v6.
But I think you should remember, you may not like the answer you are given, but it is given by volunteers trying to help you, the best they can, so play nice. Suggestions are always good I am sure.

Got an interesting question about the guide.
suppose i downgrade from sm 4.2/.4.3 to the patched 4.1 sm (the guide recomends it), would it make any problems if i (by mistake or not) updated from nintendo in the future because it is a patched sm?
thanks in advance
You should certainly think of it as added security/safety. 4,1 is where you want to be.
Thank you Blu.
I like to know my options before installing the patched 4.1 sm. If i do that is there any way to "clean" to the original 4.1 sm in the future (and maybe update to the newest sm)?
