    I recently got a brand new Wii with system menu 3.4E, and the first thing I did after the initial setup was use Bannerbomb v1 to install BootMii and the Homebrew Channel. Next, I made sure to perform a NAND backup, and that went fine. So far, so good.

    Since I was only able to install BootMii as an IOS, my next step was to install Priiloader for some extra protection. However, I soon learned that Priiloader can only be installed on a Wii with system menu 3.2, 4.0, 4.1 or 4.2.

    What's the best way to update my system menu to 4.1 without breaking anything? I have Wii Sports Resort in my possession, can that be used to update the system menu? Preferably, I would like to update to 4.1 because, as I understand it, 4.2 doesn't offer any new functionality.

    i think WSR only has 4.0 on it....4.1 was released to fix a bug in WSR found after the game had shipped....

    ModMii worked like an absolute charm. Thanks for the tip! I will keep this great software in mind if I ever have to softmod a Wii again.
