    I wanted to update the hacked wii to the latest available so I can play the newest (and my current old games) on my wii via USB loader.

    I have not updated anything in nearly a year, maybe more. What steps should I take to updated my current Ver 3.2U Wii so i can still use my USB Loader to play my old games and as many of the newer games as possible?

    Thank You

    I was reading that I could not play the Green Day Rock Band on my version.

    Not necessarily. It just made me wonder what other games I would not be able to play on my USBLoader.

    stay on 3.2. that's where i'm staying. you can update your ios's without updating the system menu. Try greenday rock band and see what happens. if your playing it from usb, you'll just need a cios that supports the instruments. i think you can use wanin's latest with ios 37 as a base. You're not going to run into any compatibility issues cuz of the system menu. just the ios.

    I recently updated to 4.1E, but before that I was able to play PAL Greenday RockBand on 3.2E. Don't know if things are different for you NTSC guys, but try it. There really are few reasons to update. I only did because I was bored.

    Gambia, The
    Using an usb loader? - Update your loader and the cIOS it uses, done. Your Wii would even work with only IOS30, the cIOS and maybe IOS36 installed and all other IOS deleted, but don't try that.(

    It worked right away, so did the Club Penguin game the kids also wanted. I haven't updated in over a year, so I was a bit worried.

    All went well.

    Thank you all for your help!
