I have a quick question for the learned folks in this forum: I soft-modded my wii a long time ago using guides at a now closed website. They had excellent guides, yafaze.com? Anyway, so this is what bootmii tells me that I have: Bootmii: 0.9 Stub: 0.9 Mini: 0.9 Sysmenu: 4.0u boot1b boot2v3 Nand FS usage: 51.8% My question is, if I want to upgrade my wii to 4.2 (do I even need to update it?) what guide should I follow? I remember I tried backing up a recent game on my hard drive (I use the USB loader) and the backup wouldn't launch at all. I am assuming the newer games require newer IOS versions? I think it was a new super mario game. Anyway, is there a good guide that will let me upgrade my Wii to 4.2 and keep it soft-modded? Thank you for your replies.
