If you follow a guide, it will update your SM to a more suitable one and it will update everything you need to. If you follow the guide correctly, it will make it so you wont accidently update. I was on the version you are on now, and i followed the guide on my signature and you will do everything you need to.
Thank you for the information, and I was considering using that same guide utilizing the bannerbomb v1. Thanks again for the advice.
Thank you for letting me know that I will receive links to the guides. I did notice from reading the other Introduce Yourself post that it's not a good idea to update. However, I just wanted to know if there are any differences from being at 3.4 and 4.3. Also if you accidentally updated to 4.3 could you not just use the guide to softmod? Thank you again for the help and I apologize if I am asking stupid questions.
I'll answer your questions, there is a difference but you only get a noticable difference on 4.1, what you will be at when you follow the guide. 4.3 just tries to kill softmods, if you accidently update you can restart the guide over again but if you do the guide correctly, you will not accidently update as priiloader stops you from doing that.
