I'm currently on 3.2 with a D2Pro chip installed. That covers playing discs from the disc channel. On 3.2 I use Starfall for region free gaming and channels and to bypass the disc updates. I would like to update to 4.0 and retain the functions I have on 3.2. I know there are various tutorials here, but am uncertain if having a hard mod introduces additional considerations before updating. The Homebrew Channel is installed. So is wadmanager, although it's one of the earlier versions. Questions: 1) Is the update process the same for those with a modchip? 2) What version of Wadmanager should I install before updating to be able to install wads on 4.0? 3) Is it as simple as using downgrader and choosing 4.0, or will I need to use a patched ISO60 still? Thank you. Longtime Wii user here, but lately have been out of the loop. Lots of applications to keep up with and much harder to find information for disc users with all the usb loader issues being discussed in the forums.
