    In front of computer...
    Updating could help you play newer games plus the SD Card Menu..

    Just read the stickies or Search

    you can update with the new versions of dop-ios if you want 4.0 or 4.1 remember to install IOS60 first and IOS70 for 4.2 then the system menu for your region

    why you can use pre/priiloader for extra patches on the system menu like skip disk updates, region free channels and lots more

    when it asks you what IOS to use use 250 and first go to IOS section press right till you see IOS60 press - button then A(to install) then A(to trucha patch) and wait for it to install then press B go to system menu section select your region(MODv9 has region detection) and then select what firmware you want and press A and install and you'll get the system menu you want done this on my 2 wii's from 3.2 all the way to 4.2 and back to 4.0

    if you use pimp my wii it will update you to 4.1
    i used it to update from 3.2 without a hitch and i recommend using it.
