    Just extract the files to your desktop, rename the Firmware_Updater_4.0.dol to boot.dol, make a folder in your apps folder on your SD card and name it something like "updater" and throw the boot.dol into that folder. You then load up HBC and select the updater.

    No, a boot.dol cannot be installed by wad manager. It needs to be installed via HBC. Backup your SD to your computer, then format it to fat32 [if it is already fat32 just format it again. After format completes, add an "apps" folder to the root of the card, then do as I instructed before and try again.

    If it isn't broken, don't fix it. I am on 3.3e and everything plays as I want it too. 165 games so far.

    because 3.1 and 3.3 you cannot install pre/priiloader, some of the best brick prevention you can get.

    I totally recomend and update to 4.1 as it has advantages over the other lower systems [aside from 4.0].

    Hi, I'm a total noob and i'm just stuck on this one thing. I'm trying to update my 3.1 firmware to 4.0 - i've renamed the file boot.dol etc but i'm unsure how to install it? What do you mean by 'You then load up HBC and select the updater'?

    Thanks, and thanks for all the useful information!
