I am on 4.0E, with HBC, preloader and USB loader GX installed.
everything seems to work apart from loading VC/wiiware wads - always get 1022.
which version of 249 should i be installing? rev8 as in this guide?
hey man, 4.1 is out, and they said that a lot of improvements was done.
Any news about to how to update to 4.1?
Step by step is quite easy.
Copy the files under your apps folder on SD Card in an directory called "Firmware Updater 4.1" for exsample. Rename the file inside the achive to "boot.dol" without the " marks and copy "boot.dol" to the "Firmware Updater 4.1" directory on the SD card.
After this put back the SD Card in the Wii and run the program using Homebrew Channel. It requires an Wireless or other Network connection to upgrade your Wii.

Hello. I have a wii (LU64) running its original 3.4e system menu. I have HBC and NeoGamma(with forwarder) running and working. I have bootmii installed as ios but no backups done yet (no GC controller)
I'm really concerned about updates on game discs bricking my system so i want to upgrade to 4.0e so i can install preloader.
Do updates from games really brick wiis, or is it just a myth?
Is the above method likely to work on my wii?
-thanks in advanced, and sorry if im being an annoying n00b >_<
Updates from games do really brick Wiis. Not a myth, take a look in Bricked Wii Issues and you'll find quite a few.
This is the tutorial I followed when bringing my Wii to 4.0e from 3.4e. I don't have a LU64 though. LU64 can't go down below 3.4 or you'll brick but you'll be fine going up as it were. You'll probably need LU64 fix before doing anything.
Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
