    The twilight hack isn't needed for squat. It was replaced by bannerbomb long ago so your argument is again like a 12 year old saying "My dad can beat up your dad!"

    you only get boot2 upgraded through Nintendo's update. I can install IOS70 and the 4.2 system menu without ever upgrading boot2 so you can't include it. The system menu is the system menu. Period. Exactly as I said. Again it is no more than a GUI. You're trying to play off the fact that Nintendo updated MORE than just the menu and that is not my argument. I never said to update through Nintendo (but I would say why not... again les than 0.001% of Wiis have ever bricked because of it and some of those were operator error) The 4.2 system menu does not "CONTAIN" a new boot2.

    Oh.. trucha signed game. Any retail disc that you download, extract a file to alter, weather you patch protection or edit tiles and replace the files back into the image needs to be trucha signed. Easiest example is enabling a bloodier manhunt by editing the config file on the image. There's your one example. Still waiting for you to provide a valid AND usefull one of your own [​IMG]

    Who friggin' cares?

    The only difference between 3.2 and 4.2 is the SD menu (useless) and the EULA (and we all know 3.2>4.2 on that account).

    End of discussion, it's entirely up to you to choose what to use.

    I care. Especially when retarded pricks tell random people to downgrade to 3.2
    Anyone who's Wii came with 4.0 or above will BRICK if they do that.

    I mod many Wiis and upgrading before modding results in maximum compatibility and minimum headaches.

    This is the same forum. It was already getting way out of hand in the cIOS rev17 thread. Way off topic for that thread...

    The EULA differences are irrelevant.
    Runnig 4.2 allows the shop to work and allows you to backup your saves to SDHC.

    Staying on 3.2 is harder than updating to 4.2 ( unless you have no new games ). Anyone who doesn't know what they should do, should probably update to 4.2.

    If you want to stay on 3.2 then you have every right to do so.

    Install wads of IOS70 and SM4.2 for your region in that order.

    The only benefit that 4.2 has over 4.1 is a higher version number so don't upgrade

    IMHO if you want to avoid Nintendo's update for some reason, then DoP-IOS 10.1 is the best tool out there. Update all of your IOS files first (IOS70 is a MUST for 4.2) and decide weather or not to patch them or not. Then install the system menu.

    There is also the 4.2 safe updater... but I didn't use it so I can't say weather you should or not.

    it will ask you anyway when you test wifi. It's part of the built in test [​IMG]
    you can just click NO every time anyway.

    I'm on 3.2E and don't experience any problems of any kind. So i'll stay at 3.2E until I run into a problem that I need to fix with an update.

    even if u update, u will still see this message (this is because the stub IOS's have a greater version number than the cIOSs we all generally use)
