Upgrade 3.4u to 4.1u
I have a friends virgin 3.4u wii. He wants to softmod it but we're having issues with the SDHC card. I suggested he get an 8GB card but i forgot that the SD card update didn't happen until 4.0. So now he has a card that the wii won't recognize. I figured if he could get his wii to 4.1u then he'd be good to go as far as SD cards and motion plus.
Is there a way to upgrade his wii to 4.1u? If not, is there a way to get his 3.4u wii to recognize the larger SD card and wii motion plus?
As you've not posted in the Introduction Section of the site (something we encourage and call for), let me briefly make mention of things. To do the tutorial/mod (I'm hoping you are doing Dogegg's guide --- links below), it requires a 2gb or smaller full SD card. It should be formatted to FAT32 fully, not via "quick" format. You can buy the Wii-branded ones @ Wal-Mart for $10 and they're Sandisk. This requirement is mentioned in the tutorial. If you own NSMB, you could update to 4.1 as well. Now for the links and hello:

There are two different routes that you can choose for modding your wii. You can either Hard-mod your wii with mod-chips or you can Soft-mod. We have a in-house trusted supplier for mod-chips Here, very trusted site, and great customer service. When and if you going to hard-mod your wii there is a great section here on the forum. Mod-Chip Section
On the Flip-Side you can soft-mod you wii using only a SD Card... The guides that are here have been tried and tested and do work... DON'T FOLLOW FAIL-TUBE VIDS.... The first step that you need to do is find out what system menu version your wii is. After you find out that piece of information there are two guides that you can use.
If you are on 3.1-4.1 system menu you can use the guide by dogeggs: [[Guide]]
If you are on the 4.2 system menu the you can use the guide by Shadowsonic2: [[Guide]]
Along the journey of modding your wii you might run into errors when trying to mod the software or install software on your wii.
