    My Wii is firmware 3.1j with only backup launcher 0.3g (no modchip). However, some new games (such as "Mario Power Tennis" ) seem require 3.2j firmware.

    In this article, I know there is a way to downgrade from 3.3j or 3.4j to 3.2j. However, the Nintendo release 4.0 firmware which make 3.2 to 3.4 unavailabe from Internet.
    Even in same article includes an icon to safe upgrade 3.3, but it did not state all three version 3.3j/3.3u/3.3e can be chosen. And I did not want to take risk to be bricked Wii.

    Therefore, in order not to be bricked Wii, is any safe way to upgrade from 3.1j to 3.2j except through original disc?

    For exmaple, if I found some backup disc includes 3.3j/3.4j inside (such as Mario Poweer Tennis), can I upgrade firmware from 3.1j to 3.2j with those backup disc? Because I don't have original disc at hand.

    In default, the backup Launcher 0.3g will disable upgrade from DVD-R disc. Is any option setting backup launcher 0.3g to enable upgrade (e.g. disable bybass upgrade)?

    Use the fles in my signature

    Just start from Step 8 if you already have the HBC installed. You can use the regular Wad Manager not the custom one.

    jinx,

    OP says he has 3.1 J, installing the 289.wad will brick his Wii, won't it? OP should replace the 289.wad with a 288.WAD, found from the semibrickfix with wiiscrubber.
    Good Luck

    Here is a link to the proper systemmenu

    Place it in the WAD directory

    How about follow another article? it seems the same as previous one except mention about upgrade from 3.1j

    By the way, what is the "recovery mode" in the backup laucher 0.3g? Can it be used to force upgrade from disc?

    Anyone knows how to enable "firmware update from backup discs" through disc channel or gamma launcher ? The default is disabled, how to enable it?
