I would like to prep my Wii to play a legal NSMBW...

    I don't particularly want to update to 4.2 in fear of ruining HBC and BootMii, so I would prefer to install the following (if they exist, in order of importance):
    -Whatever NSMBW requires in order to run from the disc channel (an IOS?)
    -Something that prevents Nintendo from sending me updates (as a safety precaution against oblivious family members who could potentially update/ruin my Wii)
    -The latest Shop Channel (another safety precaution)

    Here are my Wii specs:
    -Softmodded
    -4.0U
    -Preloader+BootMii installed, NAND backup made (through BootMii)
    -cIOS38 rev 14
    -NeoGamma R6

    just pop the disc in, update, and play.

    it'll update you to 4.1+. essentially the best update there is.

    it will install boot2v4, but you can just install bootmii again.

    and if you haven't installed the latest hackmii package, you'll have an old slightly bugged version of bootmii you'd want to update anyway. and you'll get the new hbc that won't get taken out by 4.2 if you ever go 4.2

    Pardon me for being dumb, but I've barely even heard of HackMii. All I understand is that it uses the Bannerbomb exploit or some mumbo jumbo that is used to install HBC...I installed BootMii directly from a HBC update, would I be fine updating to 4.1 with how I did it?

    "HackMii Package" is HBC, DVDx and BootMii. All-In-One installer.

    short of bricking your wii, there's nothing that can't be fixed

    Ah, so am I supposed to install that NOT through HBC (after 4.1)? Because I installed all of those fun things a few hours ago when HBC wanted to do an auto-update.

    Indeed I did, but how would I go about running it if need be without the HBC update voluntarily doing it for me? I'm under the assumption that 4.1 might remove BootMii, please correct me if I'm wrong.

    wiiso are merely full of pirates who have no clue about homebrew.
    and no, bootmii is only removed by an official 4.2 update.
