    Update my softmodded 3.3u Wii

    Alright so im using a 3.3u (safe 3.3 update) Launch Wii with Homebrew Channel on it ive installed the one cIOS originally needed to play burned games the cIOS (or is it mIOS) needed to play burned Gamecube games and cIOS rev 10 needed to play games off of USB (recently updated to cIOS rev 14) and ive done nothing else to the system no wads no preloader or bootmii.

    I want to update my Wii to 4.2 so i can get SD Card support for VC games and so i can connect to the Shop Channel and buy Mario RPG and Super Mario Kart (And if the gaming blogs are any indication Super Smash Brothers is due before years end) and a couple other games (i pirate stuff but not VC games the publishers deserve my money for making the greatness that is the Virtual console and them releasing their games to it i love the retro classics). Looking into it now id be content with 4.1 (that is the one that gives me SD Card Menu support right) and then install IOS61 and Shopping Channel v17 to get to the Shop Channel.

    Now ive seen a bunch of guides that do all sorts of installs and steps and wads and keep things as simple and easy to follow as possible but im looking for something that isnt necessarily simple but really minimal, the bare minimum essentials to be able to run Wii games off USB, gamecube games off of burned disk, and emulators on the homebrew channel without having to install half a dozen IOSs and wads to get there. i dont care if i have to run games in 002 mode or alt dol loading i just want the install to be as minimal as possible and not have to install a bunch of stuff im pretty sure i dont need. Anyone have a guide like that i.e. no BootMii no Preloader no extra IOS patches ect?

    When i first did the homebrew it has one TP hack install homebrew channel and install one cIOS and i could play burned games when the USB came it again was only one cIOS install. id like to be able to run a safe update and run one file and still be good to go. Is there a way to do this? All this homebrew stuff has gotten way to complicated with everyone and their dog coding their own IOSs and launcher and loader and other apps and updates its near impossible to keep up (or even get up to date) with it all.

    You should follow the 3.1-4.1 guide below and bring your wii up to 4.1. It has nothing but the minimum stuff to do this and will install over any ios, cios you currently have. Also, be sure to install bootmii as boot2, you said you did not want it, but if you don't install it your head is on backwards. You are blessed by the gods to have the option, don't be a fool, accept their kind offer. Install bootmii as boot2.
