    Do you have Homebrew on the 2.2E??

    Check out This Guide and see if it helps.

    Hhmm,

    The easiest way would be to put in a game that requires 4.1 in the drive and use that to update the firmware since it is a virgin.

    Wii Sports should have version 3.2 on the disk for you to update from. You can then Softmod the 3.2 firmware and prevent any further updates.

    Possibly, but that would require you download the firmware from another site, and there is then a risk as it may be riddled with anything.

    Safest way is either from an official disk OR over the WiFi, but you said you don't have WiFi.

    Is that because your Wii doesn't have the WiFi or you don't have internet access with Wireless??

    New Super Mario Bros will give you 4.1.

    The only other way without wifi is to fully softmod, for which you'll need Sys Menu 3.0+ to run Bannerbomb. So pretty much any game in the last 12 months would get you to 3.1 or above.

    No it won't as it requires 3.0+ to run Bannerbomb (didn't I already say this? )

    Just rent NSMB from your local shop, use the update to install 4.1 and all the newer IOS that you don't have. You will need to buy a 2GB SD card to softmod.

    If you are too tight to do even this then forget it and go do something else instead.

    Closed because the best answer given.
