    If everything is working how you want it i'd just leave it.

    If it ain't broke don't fix it

    no,just keep it if your playing decrypted games both of Discs and USB HDD.the 3.2 firmware has a better compatibility as it is perfectly working for you .

    I heard that 3.2U Wiis can't play Wii Sports Resort. They just blackscreen. How would one fix that issue?

    What if the Wii is hard modded and can play other games fine? Could one just use dop ios to get the proper IOS?

    Since you have your Wii hard-modded, the only thing you need is IOS55.

    Would there be any harm to just using dop-ios to get all the ones I am missing?

    Let me rephrase that. So there is no harm in installing all the IOSes in dop-ios?

    I have all the IOS's available in dop-ios installed on my 3.2e wii but would recommend doing a nand backup first if your not sure on what your doing

    i suggest 4.1 rather than 4.2. the sd menu is nice, but if you don't play wiiware or vc titles, then don't go anywhere, stay on 3.2. i only upgraded to fix some issues i was having but i like the sd menu. if your games are functioning then don't touch it unless you want sd menu
