    Hey rather than sifting through the 33+ thread trying to pull details could someone compile the best way to install 4.0 and what functions we will lose from 3.2 (also will the wads we installed on 3.2 (along with their saves and all other wii save data) carry over to 4.0 or will we have to reinstall them all)?

    thanks,
    chaseincats

    Also wondering about this. There isn't a way to keep preloader on 4.0 Wii yet, is there?

    First I was thinking about updating, with all those topics on a custom 4.0 installation
    But now with the the upcoming USB loader, I'll wait.

    this is the final agreed method to use?

    and are there any cons to this besides no starfall stuff?
    and can we keep the wads that are installed after the upgrade or do those have to be reinstalled?

    I thought Waninkoko's 4.0 updater was the worse method of going to 4.0?

    I've been reading up, sifting through, but it's all so complicated. I haven't even used my Wii in 6 months or so I think, I don't have any CIOS or anything. Haven't even used this gamma loader or whatever (Although I have a modchip anyway).

    As I understand it, only that method leaves the trucha bug intact.

    Yeah I haven't touched my Wii since Brawl came out. Now I want to play MadWorld, but I'm not sure if it's safe to do so. I trucha signed Super Mario Galaxy, SSBB, etc. and I still want to play them. So how can I update to 4.0 without losing trucha?

    Waninkoko's updater worked fine. I used a 3rd party app to trucha sign the new IOS's, 60 and 61 I believe.

    the manual way to do it and know exactly what you are doing explained:

    cios 36 rev 08 installed
    install patched ios60 via wad manager or 60/61/shop installer
    upgrade to 4.0 via Nintendo
    Iosdowngrader to trucha patch every IOS
    Anytitle deleter to delete IOS 16 stub and IOS 254 if you like...both IOSes were added to prevent installing IOS16 and patchmii which installs into slot 254.

    Best method here.

    of course if you are already on 3.2 u can just upgrade with waninkoko's updater and install the patches ios 60 - save you lots of time.

    i'll just wait until there is a be all and all package of everything that we need that retains everything that made 3.2 great, and still has preloader and starfall.
