    This installs a version patched SM, which I recommend. If this bothers you, don't do it.

    WARNING: This is a version patched System Menu, running on a version patched cios60. NEVER replace cios60-v54321 with ios60-6174. Doing so will brick your wii if you update from Nintendo. Never update from Nintendo, don't MUCK up cios60-v54321. You have been warned.
    so this section of the guide will downgraed my wii from SM 4.3 to SM 4.1 and is optional?

    what is the benefit of doing this and the re upgrading later?

    You don't re upgrade later, you stay at 4.1 forever (or, until someone finds a reason to update sometime in the future, such as a version that actually adds something needed, and, isn't just there in an attempt to stop exploits) The biggest advantage is, let's say you accidentally delete HBC, format your Wii, or do something that keeps you from running homebrew, you will need to do this whole procedure again, but, you lost/gave away/sold/trashed/whatever the original game disc you used to do the exploit? Oh, I guess you'll have to go out and buy another copy... oh, wait, no you won't, because you downgraded to SM 4.1 and can now use bannerbomb instead, whew, that was a close one...

    ok cool, well im not actually sure what version i have now, i was going to upgrade to 4.3 before starting, because i thought the indiana pwns thing looked easier and safer. but if bannerbomb is simple and safe enough, i will use that if im on 4.1 already.

    if your on 4.1 or 4.2 then bannerbom is the best option and is better then upgrading to 4.3.

    1.) Are there any other differences apart from patched cios60?
    2.) What effect would the unpatched system menu have if I were to play a backup disc? Would I also need some additinal settings if I use unpatched system menu? As though I can stop Disc Updates and Online Updates using Priiloader.

    If I softmod my wii without using the patched system menu, my news channel works fine however if I use the patched system menu, I get News000006 error (but the forecast channel works perfectly fine). Anyone else has experinecd this problem?
    Transmission over and out. For more details, use search functionality.

    Not sure, I have never used it. You can try to uninstall / reinstall the news channel. I can't think of any reason why it would not work for you, it should not depend on the system menu.

    Chapter 3- The Final Step
    Don't forget to do this
    Format your sd-card, one last time
    Extract App Pack.zip

    to sd:\ -mirror

    what do we do here? doesn't really give any instructions.

    we extract the files to the SD and then put it back in the wii and thats it?

    thanks
