    question about 3.4u to 4.1u

    i bought a wii LU66 i have already moded it out with a softmod homebrew with the neogamma r7 and config loader for my backup launcher. my question is. Is it worth upgrading to 4.1u or just leave it as it is. as i have already ran in to a few games that wont load.(AMF bowling and will sports resort) Will upgrading to 4.1u be worth it if these games will play.

    All of these game related problems where they give you a black screen can be solved by installing the needed IOS via Wad Manager. The only drawback of you being on 3.4 and not 4.X is that you cannot install Preloader which will give you some brick protection. You won't also be able to launch wiiware and virtual consoles off an SD Card (though that isn't something valueable unless you play lots of wiiware and VC)

    If you plan on upgrading, do this safely by following this guide as doing an official update will take you to 4.2 and remove your homebrew.

    there is a big thread about Wii sports Resort, it requires some special attention to get it working.

    AMF sounds like a missing IOS, as ShadowSonic2 said above.

    If you use Waninkoko's Firmware Updater and the tutorial I linked you to in my first post. You'd be able to go to 4.1 and keep all of your homebrew and IOS.

    Really? As for as I know, LU64s can install 4.0 updates and since those updates need IOS60 that means they can.
