    Wasabi DX, Softmod or not?

    Hello,

    I've had my D2C wii for two years, after about one i installed a wasabi v1/2/3 (can't remember which) with the clip.
    Recently i swapped it out to a cousin's wii and put a wasabi DX in mine (flat cable install). It seems to be working ok, and i am going to upgrade it to 3.0 tonight.
    My wii system is 4.1E.

    So, i've been reading around the forum but i am still a bit confused. Should i install homebrew? Is there any advantage, or the DX alone is enough to "satisfy all my needs"?

    Regarding system updates, how should i proceed? Update through nintendo, or block the updates? If i block them and a new game asks for an update, is there any way to get some kind of "patched" update, or something?

    Well, thank you for any advice or help!

    Cheers!

    That really depends on what your needs are.

    Updating to 4.2 will render your modchip unable play non-PAL games.

    Softmodding will allow you to keep your System up to date without changing your system menu revision, although you'll need to learn how it's done.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Ok, that would be ideal... Although i don't have any games other than PAL, it doesn't mean i won't need it in the near future. So i guess i better learn how it's done. =)

    So, to get started with homebrew, i should follow this, right? 4.1E is still covered by that tutorial, yes?

    I've been reading the Homebrew sections and FAQ's, but i still can't figure it out. What do i do or install after installing Homebrew, to keep the system up to date? Any pointers or links?

    One more thing, about the DX update blocker, does it actually work? I've always had my wii with no net connections to prevent updates, but if the blocker works then i will connect it.

    Again, thank you for your help!

    Cheers!

    Just followed the New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii tutorial to the letter.
    Every step was successful and homebrew is completely working now.

    Updated my DX to 3.0 and the next step is HDD game loading.

    Cheers!
