    What is the benefit of doing a modded 4.0 install.
    I have a wiikey and HBC, thats about it.

    Its my understanding that both of these will work with the normal 4.0.

    Either way will work, but updating officially to 4.0 before installing any cIOS will just limit the number of ways you can install cIOS on your Wii if you want to down the line for a usb loader or something. That isn't really much of a problem now though as there are like 4 different methods now to get cIOS installed (installing IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad, downgrading and installing IOS35-64-v1040.wad, cboot2, and even more recently, the Trucha Bug Restorer) and updating to 4.0 officially will only prevent one of them from working (IOS16 install).

    I don't know too much about it myself, but I think WiiPower? mentioned it a couple times saying it's something he wrote thats still in beta or something, but he said it's pretty easy to use.

    Edit: He links to it here:

    It's probably best at this point to wait since the 4.1 update has been released. Last thing you will want is to accidently update to it since it MIGHT block hacking attempts.

    my thoughts exactly.

    up till now i've been updating properly through nintendo after installing cIOS, but since V4.1 is out, i dont feel safe doing that anymore...

    oh well, guess its install IOS60 then use downgrader 1.11 [​IMG]
