    Hey, been out of the modding community for a while.

    I have a hardmod d2pro chip and just installed the latest homebrew/hackmii version fine.

    I'm interested to update to the 4.1U version to get the latest IOS (for Tatsunoko v Capcom) and ability to run off usb drive. What's a good way to do so? I saw the Wanikiko update doesn't work perfectly and I can't find a 4.1 version either. Can I just upgrade it via a 4.1 game and my homebrew will not be affected?

    Assuming you have the latest version of the Homebrew Channel, 1.0.8, then upgrading from any source, internet or disc, should be okay. Worst case scenario is that you have to reinstall a cIOS or two. However, it will not include the latest versions of your IOS files if you are using a disc that has anything less than that very latest 4.3 on it. Instead, you might just want to follow this guide and update to 4.2 with the latest IOS files.

    Use Modmii!

    Im on 4.1E with the latest IOSes.
    Use priiloader 0.4 to block updates/discupdates.

    I don't 'know what is the best method, but i was in the same case as yours a few days ago (wanted to update from a wasabi modded 3.1 to 4.1).

    Finally i used Dop-Mii : http://code.google.com/p/dop-mii/
    You can update whatever you want with this. First i updated to system menu 4.1. Then i checked here: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/IOS_History

    to see what ios i should install and then installed them through dop-mii (you'll probably want ios 53/55/56/57/58 [​IMG]) and maybe check for the ios in the v3.x range.
    Don't bother with the v4.x range (korean stuff) and anything after ios61 (at the time i'm writing... System Menu 4.2 stuff starts at ios70 and after that it's useless stuff if you have a modchip).

    So easy to use... And you can update from your wii online.
    Might be a bit annoying at first, having to see what each ios does, but in the end you'll be happy to have to have the minimum stuff installed.

    Note: there are 2 versions, the normal one and the wiibrew edition. The former one doesn't have the patching feature.
    So if you want the "pure" ios from nintendo then just get the wiibrew edition. I've chosen the normal edition and patched the new ioses i installed with fakesign and stuff but now i think it was a bit unnecessary.

    [EDIT]: didn't see you wanted usb loading... I guess you're gonna have to install custom ios stuff then.

    Thanks, I really only need the Active ios before ios60 then? I thought USB loading is the feature for system menu 4.1, since I want to be able to run wads for wiiware and VC directly off a usbdrive or something instead of installing it to the system. And to confirm, I can update to system menu 4.1 via DopMii?

    And what's the difference between ModMii and DopMii then? I see that ModMii includes DopMii, what's the additional function?

    Thanks for all your inputs, seems like I just need to update system menu (whatever that does), and the ios stuff.

    And for Lacius, from my understanding, I should be up-to-date with running all the games if I just update to the 4.1 system menu if I do it via official disc correct? And the cIOs is just for usbloading full games? Or for installing wads, ie. wiiware stuff?
