    I've left the country in june and didn't come back till monday. My wii was 4.0 when i left and i used waninkoko's 4.0 updater. It was softmodded to run backup games off the disc channel. I want to play games like new super mario bros and metroid prime trilogy but so much seemed to have happened when i was gone that i don't know if my wii will play them. So what important updates from the homebrew community have i missed?

    well, I don't know what you have missed, so I'll just name the current versions

    Wii menu
    4.1 (nothing new besides a small Wii sports resort fix)
    4.2 (major homebrew blocking update, but can still be hacked)

    Disc Backup Launchers
    Neogamma R7 (or R8)
    Softchip R100
    GeckoOs 1.9.3

    USB loaders
    Can now load from FAT32 partitions
    Config USB loader v48
    USB loader GX r838
    Wiiflow 1.1

    cIOS
    waninkoko's rev15 (which doesn't work with disc launchers)
    hermes 222/223 r4

    Other
    Preloader 0.30 (or priiloder rev15)
    Of course Startpatch for 4.2

    Thats about it I think

    Oh yeah, New Super Mario Bros Wii has new Piracy protection, but most loaders should fix it (or just get the patched version)
