    i just bought a nintendo wii today. february 4 . 2010
    i was wondering if something has changed since this guide was made.

    my wii comes with menu Ver. 3.3E about the part where i should let it update.
    will it update me to 4.2 or to what ? or do i get any option to which version i should update ? n if so which version should i get.

    i haven't started modding my wii cuz i'm not quite sure about this part.



    i would appreciate some help. thanks in advance

    Hi Guys,

    Is it safe to upgrade from 4.1 to 4.2?.

    The more relevant question is, why would you want to? 4.2 was only introduced to kill homebrew. You'd have to do a relatively more difficult mod in order to get 4.2 to work. The better choice is 4.1 (or any 3.1 to 4.1 Wii) to accomplish your goal of softmodding.

    Do not let Nintendo update your Wii --- you'll get 4.2 and it involves a comparatively more difficult mod to get softmod done. The guide is current --- look near the bottom where it shows the "edited" date. Step 4 is where it'll safely update your Wii to 4.1 (necessary as 3.3 is incompatible with Priiloader). Follow the guide a step at the time and consult the videos if needed. Any questions, ask back. IDK about Windows 7, but if you highlight and click properties it'll probably tell you if FAT or FAT32.

    IOS55-64-v5149

    My cIOS is an older version, and I have not got bootmii or priiloader (I would like them both).

    I can run all games and install wads fine (have sports resort and new mario working fine).

    Do I run the update on these files? Do I update the original files I did as well? Or Do I just follow this guide and basically re-softmod the wii again?

    Or the last option, 'if it aint broke don't fix'

    Thanks, Tim
    At minimum, do step 3D (installs the latest cIOS) and the IOS installs. If your Wii isn't @ 4.X or 3.2, I'd recommend doing Step 4 and also Priiloader.

    Your sentence structuring makes it difficult to understand you. NeoGamma which is included, works for both discs and USB HD. There's other loaders available as well --- USB Loader GX, Configurable USB, WiiFlow, etc. If you're looking for a good USB HD thread, look here. For device compatibility with regard to USB HD, you can check out gbatemp here or Wiihacks' own thread here.

    That is exactly right, i read through the first post several times, and followed each utube clip when doing the mod making sure i was correctly selecting the right options. I did mine about a month ago now so cant remember off the top of my head and I could not believe how easy it was to modify. The only part that threw me a little was when i thought the screen had frozen, but it was actually downloading and installing certain files which took about 10 minutes.

    I already had a stack of original games, but have since downloaded many others which have all worked when uploading the ISO game file onto usb HDD using WBFS manager 3.0 and playing with neogramma8, would download more if my dam internet speed was fast enough. I have burnt most to dvd-r discs also with only 1 that did not work. ( maybe bad disc )

    I have still to install the USB loader, which i intend to do so i can rip my original games onto the usb HDD. I am so thankful to this site.

    Can anyone suggest some useful sites to get some great games

    many thanks

    If you are done with the softmod then you can say yes and update HBC.

    The latest and greatest version of USB Loader GX can be found here both in wad form (channel install) and boot.dol (HBC launch).

    On the useful sites note, this request is not to be made in this thread. If you look under forums, you'll see a list of groups that may be what you're looking for --- look under the category of Wii Downloading Information.
