    Hi All,

    My friend has a wii that is on 3.2e and he wants me to hack it.
    I was going to use modmii but was wondering if i should update to a higher firmware before i hack it.

    Cheers

    nope.
    4.2/4.3 firmwares have almost no advantages.

    Well why not? OK 4.2 and 4.3 are useless, but why don't update to the recommended 4.1? It added the channel from sd feature so it's better. And iirc modmii also recommend it. So simply use modmii and it will do it for you [​IMG]

    you don't need to update before hacking....an update to 4.1 will be recommended during the mod process if you use modmii....

    If you use modmii this is the guide that it will generate for you to mod your friends wii. As you can see its pretty straight forward and easy to follow.

    Use Modmii. Updating is part of the process.

    Feature-wise, 4.1 is the best, BTW.

    Do you think it would ask you for one if you didn't need it?

    There are lots of games you can choose from. Use ModMii for a list.
