    I've been on 3.2U because I've been reluctant to upgrade beyond that, I like having no problems like I've been reading for all of the upgrades beyond 3.2, what are the advantages to upgrade to 4.2? also, can I downgrade back to 3.2 from 4.2, is there a guide to do that? also, will the USB Loaders be able to use the Hombrew Channel Forward ISO(1.0.5)? thanks

    This is eaxctly my thought. I absolutely despise when applications (especially firmware updaters) do "things" behind the scenes. I don't need my IOSes patched/hacked/whatnot. If I need that I can damn well do it myself. Just give me the normal update, minus the garbage that tries to STOP me from doing what I want to do. And, let me see what is going on when I update! This is the heart of this updater.

    The source is also there as I said earlier. So, when a new firmware emerges, it'll be as simple as discovering which IOSes we can install SAFELY and merely updating the source to reflect the new IOSes that need to be downloaded. We may never need another firmware updater again [​IMG]

    I wouldn't advise downgrading ever. Advantages over 3.2? Lesse:

    1. New SD menu (transfer wiiware and vc to SD and play from there

    2. You'll be up to date. Who knows if a game will come along soon that requires 4.0+ (I know, hasn't happened yet)


    The update is extremely safe and will not touch your previous loader capability and so on. Heck, it'll fix some issues people currently have with all of those fakesigned IOSes as well!

    But, you do not have to upgrade at the moment..you can stay where you are of course. Me...I like being up to date safely [​IMG]

    As for the HBC forwarder ISO...I don't know...never tried it [​IMG]

    Just wanted to let you know that I successfully downgraded to 3.2 from 4.2, but then I tried to upgrade to 4.1 and it bricked my Wii. I used Waninkoko's firmware updater before to get to 4.2 though so I don't know if that makes a difference. I wouldn't advise to downgrade unless you absolutely have to.

    I'm going to give this updater a try and let you guys know how it goes. I don't ever plan on downgrading again, but I wanted to get back to 4.1. Seeing as 4.2 is nearly as hackable as 4.1 at the moment, I don't see a problem with staying on 4.2 for the time being.

    The interesting thing will be to see if Nintendo comes up with 4.3 or 5.0 in a month or two. Hopefully, they'll fix the bricking problem with the boot2 update code. I don't see myself using an official firmware updater from Nintendo ever again if it continues to update boot2 because I want to keep bootmii. Maybe if Team Twiizers comes up with a hack for the new boot2 version 4, I'll consider it. Anyway, that was my long rant about the 4.2 update.

    Umm, there IS a hack for boot2v4. It's the same hack as the old one because the vulnerability lies in boot1, not boot2.

    Wait... I'm on 3.2, does that mean if I update to 4.2 nothing bad will happen? Because last time I updated to 4.1, Some of my backups couldnt play, even with backup loader..

    there is no downgrade unless you absolutely have to anymore.
    there is no reason to downgrade at all.

    Just wondering if this update kills the region thingummybob for Wiikey users..? I know the official one does and the Waninkoko one does. Am quite happily on 4.1 so far but like to be up to date in terms of firmware updates. [​IMG]

    cool release but i will not be updating unless some reason comes along to, but awesome to know it can be done with little to no effects (i assume its more towards no effects, but preloader screws that up). I am already screwed that preloader won't load to HBC, without that access it makes it a bitch to fix something, if i get a bad wad or something like that. @ the previous poster why would you downgrade to 3.2? downgrading is very risky anymore due to stub ios's and crap like it, just stay on 4.1 if you got it or go to 4.2 safely. quick question if anyone can answer, will waninkoko's 4.1 updater still function as normal? i assume it will but i'm curious

    Looks nice and clean. I prefer using NUSD and wad manager to update myself, but this looks great nonetheless.

    Although I do prefer trucha patching IOS's though. I have several forwarder channels that wouldn't work otherwise.

    Well, it is completely based off of my guide, and I did get confirmation from a wiikey owner that there were no ill side effects. I cannot guarantee it tho, as I am not a wiikey owner.

    Ok that's good to know. I'm installing 4.2 using the safe firmware updater to overwrite Waninkoko's update. I will patch the IOS's that I want to have the trucha bug.

    Just updated my 3.4U to 4.2U, no problems at all. Has anyone gotten preloader .29 to work? I only have homebrew channel and usb loader gx installed right now, all the games still work.

    Preloader .29 works with 4.2. Just get the latest hacks from wiibrew for your region.
