    if u looked at this guide:
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html

    the internet connection is needed for the update to 4.1
    if u read step 4
    "This step is optional unless you are on 3.1, 3.3 or 3.4 in which case you must update, if you are on 3.2 or 4.0 you can update if you want and it is recommended that you do.."

    so if u have an original new super mario bros or other 4.0, 4.1 game disc, u can just update from disc to 4.1 and u dont need internet anymore. I was on 4.1 and did not need it with that tut.

    o btw its only the guide above that uses interNet just for updateing (uses WAD cios installation)

    other guides might use connection for other parts like the cIOS and other stuff.

    You could basically do the softmod without an internet connection you can even update to 4.1 without internet the only thing is it is easier if you have an internet connection.

    Also they are asking you to turn off Wiiconnect 24 off not the internet connection if you are following this guide which you should be.

    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html

    Before you start make sure Wiiconnect 24 is off as it can stop bannerbomb working, you may turn it back on once you have completed the guide.
