    Updating to specific wii firmware

    I had a question about how to upgrade or downgrade to a specific wii firmware??

    I have heard that 3.2 is the best one because it enables all of homebrew applications. Is this correct and what do I use to change the firmware??

    Thanks guys

    I just had a look at the guide and it is unclear how I update ,not downgrade- I have a new premodded d2pro PAL wii with 3.1E firmware - Nothing has been done to it except run wiisports. I would like to be able to run homebrew and play "scrubbed " backups. It looks like 3.2 is the way to go - how do I upgrade to this level and not beyond?
    By staying on 3.2 will this limit the games I can play or will they still work if they have had brickblocker run on them?
    Thx for the help- new to the wii scene - transfer from PS2 scene lol.

    yup. you can use any region changer to get where you need to be ...


    or you can upgrade to the 3.4, then downgrade to the 3.2 using the guide above.

    Thx for the tips - I don't have an SD card (and my PC doesn't have a SD card slot to add data to one). Is there a way that I can upgrade from 3.1E to 3.2E via USB or DVD ? Also the wii is not connected to the internet and is not likely to be in the future.

    Yes, but the dvd method requires a chip, and wii update manager, which swaps a ISO's update

    as for the SD card, and the PC

    they made Card adapters that plug into a USB, so get one of those, + a card, and use that, in all it would be 30 usd max

    Thx again - sounds the way to go - Another solution might be to find a game that has the 3.2E update on it . Is there a list somewhere of what game has what update? - If not do you know a game that installs 3.2E firmware? Thx.
