Help with Upgrade 3.1U to 4.2U
I softmodded my wii with the Twilight hack ages ago. I have not updated the firmware recently so my wii is still 3.1U.
I am thinking of getting the New Super Mario Bros Wii game but that would require me to update to 4.2U
I've been searching around and I've seen threads on softmodding both of these firmwares.
But what I want to know is, how do you upgrade a softmodded 3.1U to a 4.2U?
I've also seen threads about custom firmwares and how to upgrade them, I'm open to all suggestions to get my Wii to the most recent firmware that will allow me to play games.
Firstly as this is your first post here some info you will need.

Hi and welcome to WiiHacks tapsta
If you need advice or help for anything Wii related you have joined the right site, whether its hard or soft modded.
Donít be shy, ask if you are stuck, just donít expect other people to do all the work for you.
Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly, search before asking questions.
Make sure you post in the correct areas of the forums.

If you already have Homebrew, upgrade to 4.1 written by Dogeggs
Donít update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie
2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVD's. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.
And please do donate to the forum if you are able so we can go on helping the Wii community.
I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.
