My Wii was at 3.4u without any MODs on it. I soft modded the console using the following procedures: 1) Run the Twilight Hack v0.1 beta2 2) Install Homebrew Channel 1.0.1 (these instructions are all over and easy to do). Now you can delete everything on the SD card. 3) On your SD card, in an "apps" folder on the root, you need WAD Manager 1.3, Custom WAD Manager for IOS16, and the WiiGator Lodaer .3 Gamma with 002 fix. Make sure the *.dol files are named "boot.dol" only. 4) On your SD card, in a "WAD" folder on the root, you will need IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad, and cIOS249r7.wad. These are the hardest files to find. Try searching torrent sites. I got cIOS249r7.wad from a SoftMii torrent. 5) Launch the HBC, run WAD Manager (not the custom one yet), and install IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad. Reboot. 6) Launch the HBC, run the Custom WAD Manager for IOS16, and install cIOS249r7.wad.wad. Reboot. 7) Launch HBC, run WiiGator. Now, I want to be able to use the shop again, so I want to upgrade the system to the latest 4.1 System Menu. Going directly from 3.4 to 4.1 (US System), are there any difficulties I should consider? I already have HBC installed and running along with WiiGator's loader, a disk copier/dumper, and some emulators. Those are all I am really interested in using. Will I brick my Wii? Will I have to reinstall anything to continue using HBC or the loader or disk dumper? Thank you for your input!
