I've recently bought a 2nd hand wii, and it has firmware 3.4. I'm a complete noob to the wii, but not to modding/hacking hardware. I've ordered a Wode for the kids to use and have been reading anything and everything I come across on this site that might help. My question that I havent found an answer for is:- Is there an optimum firmware to have installed? I see that 4.2 or less is considered fine. Is there any benefit to the wii to having a higher one than my 3.4? Any bug fixes that are crucial? Any games need a higher one to work? If there is a higher one that you recommend - is there a particular game that includes it that I should borrow? Or should I simply connect the Wode and relax? :-) Thanks!
