    If you do it right, there are no cons.

    so in 4.0 you can run HBC, USB Loader, Backup Channel, and GC backups? i don't care about disc channel backup support
    also, can you still install wads for VC and such in 4.0?

    well i have 4.0 and i installed MM wad and i have it running from the sd card. you need to follow the guides carefully though. their all different depending what you want to use. for me it was easy just install rev9/10, update through Nintendo than install patched ios60. i only use the hbc and usb loader. but if you use preloader you can't use the method i used. like i said follow the guides carefully.

    So long as you have the homebrew channel, and cIOS before you update, you'll be fine. You'll be in trouble if you delete these in 4.0 though!

    and because i got so many answers here just another one question a little bit out of topic. Is there any homebrew channel loader? doing the same thing as System menu's 4.0 SD Loader but for all the kind of original and homebrew channels.

    It feels safer to run things from SD,HDD etc. than installing them on Wii. Thanks BTW for all the previous answers.

    4.0 works great
    it has disc channel back up, wads work, themes work, preloader
    update
    the only thing i don't think it has is No Copy Save Protections Removed and Move your Disc Channel anywhere

    as long as u update with waninkokos updater im pretty sure u can still installs Cios. I have un/reinstalled cMIOS like 4 times on 4.0.

    OHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    One highly irrelevant Con, and I don't know if this is with 4.0 specifically or preloader pr something, but when installing a wad with wad manager, My Wii will not read backups through the disc channel with CIOSCORP, and you have to reinsert the game for it to be read 0.o

    I'm also considering updating to 4.0. I was wondering why preloader is recommended for the upgrade. Is there a random chance the updating (Waninkoko's updater) will fail and Brik the wii?

    I'm just hesitant to install preloader because it sounds like some people have tried uninstalling it (imporperly) and bricked their wii. Is it simple to uninstall?

    Thanks.
