Hi all, I let my mate borrow my wii about a week ago who has no wifi connection and have now just got it back. I have been out of the scene for about a week now and have read through quite a few posts on gbatemp and have noticed there were a few issues arising i.e system menu 4.2 and a new hbc and hackmii stuff. I'm NOT going to be updating to 4.2 just yet but have noticed that my hbc channel v.1.0.3 keeps prompting me to update to the latest hombrew channel version 1.0.5 everytime i reboot the wii into hbc and have previously said 'no'. I realise that it is important to istall the new hbc and do the new hackmii updates before updating using Waninkoko's SM_4.2 system menu updater! Do i currently need to update new hbc installer? Is it important as for now i'm staying on 4.1. (for a few weeks anyway! untill the whole 4.2 thing blows over!) What functionality would i lose i.e preloader & preloader hacks? Any other functionality? Would old & original .nand backup files still work? Lastly.......Is Waninkoko's SM update region specific? i.e do i need a pal version of his updater? Thanks in advance! System Menu: 4.1E Homebrew Channel: V1.03 (current!) Bootmii V: recent version: Preloader V: 0.29 Waninkokos cIOS 38Rev14(249) Hermes V (for guaitar hero games) CIOSCORP has NOT BEEN INSTALLED!
