    Do you lose anything if you upgrade from 3.2 to 4.2?

    I really want protection against accidentally pressing "yes" to online updates, but that's only possible on 4.2 I hear?

    Well if I update from 3.2 to 4.2 will I lose any abilities such as GC/Wii backups, usb functionality, PriiLoader etc?

    I wanted to search the forum for this question, but I'm unsure what to type.

    I was wanting to either use the safe updater or completely uninstall mods first. (Using the safest forum instructions for each mod.)

    I was wondering more along the lines of, can you mod 4.2 just as thoroughly as 3.2 and get all the same benefits? (GC/Wii backups, Full USB functionality, etc.)

    you cam remod but my point is there are always going to be releasing new system menu versions with adverse effects. I expect to see a new one very soon since the 4.2 didnt do what they expected or was hacked as well.

    You know that some Wii's that were never hacked got bricked with that 4.2 update. If you own a boot2 Wii then it is possible your Wii could get bricked from that update. I would say if your Wii was manufactured before mid 2008 that you may have such a Wii.

    Mine's definitely post mid-2008. It's a 3.4u and can't install BootMii as boot2. (I wish, and believe me, I've tried.)

    I want to block all future updates (even online ones). The app that does that apparently only works on 4.2 though.

    So if I go ahead and ditch 3.2 for 4.2 will I be losing any of the functionality?

    I think all you have to do is the "safe" up date to 4.1, and then update an IOS and the shop channel, this should stop the update prompt. Give a look around for a tutorial that shadowsonic posted. I think it was this one http://www.wiihacks.com/homebrew-dow...installer.html, I could be wrong though, but I thought that's what this post is for.

    I think that priiloader will stop updates, from disc or network connection.

    Look at this post, here, it is from the same link as above.

    So if you update to 4.1 then install priiloader and block updates you ought to be safe, if you use shop channel, the link I provided will stop update prompts when using shop channel. That'w why my wii never goes online, no worry about accidental updates.

    what app are you talking about that is exclusive to 4.2? I have never heard of such a thing and once you go to 4.2, it is nearly impossible to go back. So please be careful to reread whatever it is you are reading from or get a second opinion on the materials you are reading this info from.
