By mistake I used the 4.2 guide files to install homebrew, dvdx and bootmii.
Can I continue with this guide, or do I need to uninstall and start over?

Scorpse, You need to know the region of your wii. If it is NTSC-U then You can do an offline update by installing SystemMenu-NTSCU-v449 using wad manager. Make sure you installed IOS60 patched first. You can find that by clicking Dogeggs banner on the first post. WARNING! Make sure you are using the right region or you will brick. Note: By installing a wad update you will not get the channels updates as mentioned by gen. Recommended method is by running 4.1 safe updater as directed by the tutorial.

You're probably gonna roll your eyes at this one with a kind of NOOB look and i'm sorry if it's already been asked, even though I THINK i've searched but couldn't find it.
I brought my wife a new black Wii for xmas, the firmware says 4.1E.
Am I still ok to use your walkthrough for softmodding even though it does say works on all Wiis UP TO 4.1. Isn't 4.1E higher?

The letter stands for the area
E = Europe
J = Japan
U = USA
K = Korean

ohh i work well on my 4.1u wii
but now i want to do this to my friend but he have wii 3.4u
and i am not good in english what can i do on this step first and how ???
i am bit counfusd what to do first
4. UPDATE YOUR SYSTEM MENU VERSION
Warning - If you don't install the patched IOS60 first you will brick!
This step is optional unless you are on 3.1, 3.3 or 3.4 in which case you must update, if you are on 3.2 or 4.0 you can update if you want and it is recommended that you do, if you are on 4.1 there is no need obviously! If you are on 3.1 you will have to update to 4.0 first, make sure you install the patched IOS60 first though still. Before you update to 4.1 make sure you have at least 250 blocks free or you will brick, install IOS60-patched first with Wad Manager using IOS249, then run Firmware Updater 4.1. If you are on 3.3 or 3.4 then you must update now - DO NOT install priiloader until you have updated as it will cause untold problems!.
thnx for eveything

I'm following the precious guide for softmod wii with 3.1/4.1 firmware.
On a first, white wii 3,4 firmware, everything was smooth, on a second, black wii4.1e firmware, when i enter wad manager to patch ios 60, i cannot find ios249.....only have a bunch of ios (34, 35, 36, 37 etc and ios 257).....
So i get stucked.
