Please let me know if you can help....

    If you want to hack/softmod your wii, don't follow youtube guides (they often contain errors). Just follow the New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii guide. It also contains some videos to help you through the process. Futhermore, if you follow this guide, we will be able to help you if things go wrong.

    You must first accept an update from a game that has a system menu 3.1-4.1 on it to use that guide

    You can Look at THIS list to see the system menu that comes with certain games. 4.0 is basically the same as 4.1 so I reccomend getting NSMBW and updating with that ( It has 4.1)
    Damn I suck!!!!

    It would be better to just follow this guide: http://www.wiihacks.com/homebrew/609...d-any-wii.html

    Works for 3.0.

    EDIT: Maybe you have to update to 3.2 first, then 4.1, because in the other guide linked here it said 3.1 users needed to go to 4.0 first, but since now there is Dop-Mii you could just update to 3.2 and then to 4.1.

    Also, you don't really absolutely HAVE to update to 4.1 from 3.2. 3.2 and 4.1 are probably the best firmwares to be on right now.

    Although there's nothing wrong with 3.2, 4.1 has better sd support and you get more current ios's which makes the amount you have to install manually (not that hard) limited to the latest and greatest ios's. I would suggest going to 4.1 from disc and then going through the guide so you get all the ios's.
