    Wii softmod quesion

    Hi guys, so I've decided to buy a WII and mod it by myself. I'm about to do that, but I have one last simple question:
    You see, I have firmware 4.0 installed on my Wii. In the softmod guide it says that I should not update to 4.2, instead continue on with 3.1-4.1 guide. But why is that? Isn't 4.2 better? On the Xbox'es for example you had to update to run newer games, is it different on the Wii? Will I be able to (hypothetically) play Super Mario Galaxy 2 when it comes out if I softmod a 4.1?

    Cheers

    Stick with the 4.0, just compare the 2 guides, 3.1-4.1 and 4.2 you will see what I mean.
    4.0 has same sdhc comptibility so stick with it.

    I have the same problem

    My Wii has been hacked for a while now running 4.1 but whenever I buy new games I'm forced to do an update. Does this affect the Homebrew hack?

    For most games you only really need to update the IOS the game is using.

    After you "buy" your games, why are you not taking out the update partition?
