    disadvantages of 4.0 vs 3.2

    Hi I have been always in and out of the wii mod scene and basically I kept my wii with 3.2.. just lately i wanted to upgrade to 4.0 for the purpose of sdhc compatibility however i want to be sure with 4.0 that i do not loose any functions or abilities at all as compared with 3.2

    can someone please post me the disadvantages of 4.0 compared to 3.2 (this is for NTSC) also i got a wiikey v1 modchip and i would like to have the options of installing wads if i ever so decide to install vc games that i own in previous systems thank you.

    There are no disadvantages. 4.0 and 4.1 are good to be on. However don't update to 4.2. Check out the " Updating your old softmod" Guide. That will get you updated to 4.1 with updated Loaders.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    My wii was on 4.2 due to an update and before I decided to actually mod but I have heard it's best to be on 4.1.

    Link here may be useful http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-softmod.html

    I cant really tell you why so i'll let someone else do that who is more familiar with the older system menus.

    Kranks you beat me to it

    No softmodding? run the update from new super mario bros. and yoou'll be at 4.1 with all the benefits and none of the downsides.

    You are confused I think. If you had DVDx HBC or bootmii then you are softmodded in some way. I will say again you CANT install wads unless you are softmodded so I don't know what your talking about.

    maybe ur confused as to what i mean let me clarify your issue...
    softmodded = similar to hardmod with chip ability to play backups basically without installing a physical chip

    hombrew = install wads, homebrew channel bootmii. I do this and i am able to install say vc titles for example if i want to easily with wad manager in 3.2 u without a cios
