Hacking Homebrew update issue

Hey all, I wasn't sure where to post this specifically, so I hope it's not a big deal if it's here. I'll repost somewhere else if needed.

Anyways, on to it:

I have HBC and a myriad of other mods and hacks done to my Wii, having updated it through Nintendo to a late 3.x version, and have since downgraded to 3.2 (this was, I think, when Preloader was beta and needed an older version?). I want to get updated to 4.2 and have my backup loaders current, but I'm not sure what would be the quickest and easiest way to do it. Opinions?

Should I:

A.) Use any one of the number of 4.2 update guides on here and hope I don't run into any issues...


B.) Update to 4.2 through Nintendo and then perform the new HackMii install using the Banner Bomb exploit and go about my business from there?

Lastly, what backup loaders would you guys reccommend? It's been awhile since I've had time to putz around on my Wii, so I haven't been keeping fresh with what's been going on. Mainly looking for disc loaders, as I need to find an enclosure for my HDD, and wouldn't mind having the option to move to that in the future.

Any input, links or any of the above would be appreciated!
