Upgrading from 3.3e to 4.1e with HBC & Loaders still working
I have a 3.2e machine BootMii installed (boot2) and have an image as it stands at the moment. Question:Can I run the official Nintendo updater to 4.1 install hacks/mods etc and go back to my image if it all goes to pot?
Is it worth it or is 3.2 the dady?
I don't know why, but I had same problem.

Once I was done with 4.0, I did the sytem updater 4.1 and that work.
I have updated my softmoded 3.2E to 4.1E with this manual (online installation). However I have had some problems and I think FAQ section of this post should be updated. One must read all posts in this thread to get all information needed when something doesn't work.
1. Step 4 launch BootMii doesn't work with WiiMote. I thought something is wrong with my Wii until I read this in one od the posts.
2. Step 5 didn't work since I was not able to run bootmii
3. Step 10 says to downgrade even if Wii is already on 3.2. Downgrader on my Wii didn't do anything since I selected the versino which was already installed.
4. Step 11 4.1 Firmware Upgrader didn't work on 3.2. Also some other posts report the same error (Error -1036). I have used 4.0 Firmware Updater and I didn't know whether to proceed from step 1 again or can I install 4.1 imediatly. I think 4.1 Firmware Updater can be run right after 4.0 Firmware Updater.
5. Step 14 I didn't find any option similar to "Skip disc update check". Where exactly should I look for it?

Step 4 need GC in slot one to access the menu, i think it used to work with the console buttons but not in latest version. The faq on bootmii described it as too low of a function to access the wiimote, at the level it is running none of the "drivers" are accessable so noremote available ecept a hard wired one.
i think step 5 will work if you get a GC controller
step 10 well if you were already there i can see why it would do nothing. I think it may be there just to be sure you are at 3.2 before you continue.
Step 11 I had same problem but as said before Sys Updater 4.0 worked and the 4.1 right after worked. these are both the Waninkoko update programs.
Step 14 I found it, but forgot where, I think it was in the hacks submenu,
Trying to run the prepare.bat file for the offline downgrade/upgrade. I am on system menu 4.1U. The batch file runs fine, downloads everything, but MooSFV complains about SystemMenuV449.sfv. I've re-run it 100 times, no luck getting past that.
OK so im havking some issues. i think its that i formatted it to fat32, but i dont know how to format it to fat16. IN vista, it doesnt give me the option to format to fat16. i have issues using the trucha bug and stuff so help please!
i dont have lu64, so i dont think thats an issue.

Every time I click on the online downgrader mediafire link, it takes me to the download page and after I hit download.. nothing happens.
The offline download works fine, though. Why is that?
