    When to update?

    I'm a totally newbie in wii softmod, although I've modded a few wii's with wiikey. So here is my dumb question: I got a wii with very old firmware (3.0). Is there any way to update to 4.1? If it's doable, should put bootmii, hbc, and cIOS on first then upgrade? or upgrade first then mod?

    Thanks. This is my very first post on this forum.

    the tutorial is for 3.1-4.1. i think it would be better to let the wii update from a game before using this guide. if you wanna go to 4.1 in this manner, the new super mario bros game is the way to go.

    So update from a game is the only way to get 4.1 now? I assume I'll get 4.2 if I update online.

    You can use Waninkokos SAFE 4.1 updater [at least i am 99% sure you can]. On your second quote, You assume correctly sir/maam. - DISREGARD THIS POST

    I've read most of the tutorials, but still haven't got an idea for my questions. the two major ones are for 3.1-4.1 and 4.2, so I assume I need to update to 4.1 the normal way first. But I think I'll get 4.2 if I update online. So here is where I'm stuck.

    The best way to update your console, since your on a menu that isn't supported by the guide, is to rent/buy/borrow NSMB and update with that as it carries the 4.1 System Menu. Just DO NOT update on-line. Turn WiiConnect24 and Internet Off then throw the game in.

    I have thought that Waninkokos' SAFE 4.1 updater is only for modded console to avoid bricking. So it can also be used on a untouched wii?

    you don't necessarily have to update to 4.1 to do the softmod but you should be at least 3.1. the guide has steps to get you to 4.1 from there. i suggested that game as it might have saved a step if you had to update from a disk at all.
