Once that is confirmed and IOS versions match, I'll proceed to use DOP-Mii to uninstall IOS30 (v1040) and use Wad Manager and install IOS30 (v1040) taken from (We Hack Wii / IOS and RVL Downloads). It mentions in this site that IOS30 is "IOS for System Menu 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.3v2...". Thinking aloud (and hoping not to sound stupid), does that mean I do not need IOS30 since I am on 4.0?
Additional info: I installed EULA USA v2 (We Hack Wii / IOS and RVL Downloads) last night, and it fixed the need to update system when I try to accept User Agreement. My Shop Channel works and it turned on WiiConnect24. I've disabled WiiConnect24 and will also be deleting my News/Weather Channel as after using it, I realized I really have no use for this.
