    I recently decided to softmod my wii after pandoraizing my PSP.

    I have a question I can't seem to find the answer to. I have a launch wii... in the wii options it says 3.4u this is the system menu version correct? I haven't updated in a very long time and was wondering if I was right or not. Is there a way for me to update my wii, seeing as I can't update with wifi through nintendo anymore. Am I thinking right or is not the system menu version at all?

    sorry if this has been answered... I've read through the forums and used the advanced search options.

    Probably wasn't mentioned elsewhere since it is assumed to be pretty basic knowledge.

    Yes, you have version 3.4 of the USA/NTSC System Menu. There is a large topic (Ultimate 4.0 Guide or somesuch) with a guide on how to update while keeping homebrew modifications intact using a customized updater. Generally, 3.2 or 4.0 are the best places to be, although 4.1 is also fine.

    I was told if I update like that my wii could get banned from the nintendo network, and I currently don't have wireless internet so I've had to make all the wads and such to get this to work of of my SD card

    you got lied to big time.
    dont believe the things many people say.
    check out my guide's offline method to update to your Wii 4.1 and keep all the latest features.
    any other guides with the exception of Deviyl's are outdated.
    make a wise choice sir.

    I've fully completed everything on this guide. My only problem is the frontloader hacks.ini don't work for 3.4u all I can find anywhere is 3.2u and 4.0u

    I figured it would be easier to update my system menu to 4.0 problem is I can't figure out how

    its called preloader.
    3.4 doesnt have preloader hacks.
    use waninkoko's firmware updater to safely get to 4.1

    but in your case, since you have no wifi, follow the offline method in my guide and youll get the the system menu wad to install via wad manager

    thank you very much for the help... I didn't expect to get my question answered this fast.

    heh meant to say preloader... was thinking of old frontends for emulators for some reason.

    I'll chalk that one up to you thinking of my guide as more of an encyclopedia than a guide.

    Your guide is the only recent with GC mentioned.
    By the way, we need a guide to tell us what's in each guide. [​IMG]

    Isn't that pretty much what mine does already? Your post confuses me. [​IMG]
