    The same downgrade tools you've read about can also upgrade you to 3.2 or any other version you want to be on.

    And yes, the USB Loader can dump your games from their discs onto an HDD.

    You can either go to 3.2 and install Starfall to block unwanted disc updates (so you don't loose any hacks) or you could lok into the 4.0 update tools and Preloader. The latter option is a little more complicated but in the end you'll have your wii all the way up to date and with all hacks installed.
