    Whether to softmod 4.1, 4.2, or 4.3?

    Hi, sorry if this question has already been answered... Just decided to softmod my wii today and ive been lurking these forums for awhile. My wii is version 4.1U right now, and im aware that there is a different way to softmod 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3. I was wondering whether i should stay at 4.1 or update to 4.3 in order to softmod. I also saw some people say that 4.2 is better than 4.3...if theres any way to softmod at 4.2 (if this is the best choice). Thanks!

    Stick with 4.1 and follow the 3.1-4.1 dogeggs guide in the Tutorial section. Best way to go hands down. 4.2 and 4.3 were only designed as anti-homebrew - no upgrades, updates, nada.

    you can do what you want buddy. i wish you luck in what ever you do. if it was me, i would stick to your current setup. i think 4.2 (i know if i'm wrong someone will correct me here) was a jab at anti piracy more or less. i think it also updated the firmware for the s/d card slot allowing s/d h/c (up to 32 gig). 4.3 was a joke. it claimed to be speeding up your system while disabling alot of the known hacks. from what i see, it didn't it. did make it more difficult to hack though. if you want 4.2 or 4.3, there are tutorials on how to update safely here. if i was you, i'd hack it and leave it be but that's just me.

    4.2 and 4.3 were made to kill homebrew and nothing more pretty much. 4.1 is the way to go.
