    I have a wii that is currently on 3.1U. Ive read that ideally you want to be on 3.2U. Should i try to update to 3.2 or just install the homebrew channel on my 3.1U and just install a new cios and loaders? I also dont have wi-fi that ive read that i need to update to 3.2. Any suggestions?

    other than that game is there an app that contains the update? would it hurt anything if i installed loaders on 3.1U?

    You can update to 3.2u with iosdowngrader 1.2 and internet .

    If you have homebrew chanel of course .

    I think don't update directly with nintendo update because i think you go directly to 3.4

    no, but if you don't have any games with the 3.2 update you can still update to 3.2U using cIOS downgarder(as it updates aswell, just install a cIOS), anyregion changer(just make sure you choose "3.2U" and you'll be fine)

    as i said in the post above "no"

    damn, you have no internet... i know cIOS downgarader uses internet, i'm not sure about anyregion changer though as i never used it, maybe someone can clarify

    any region changer fetches IOS from Nintendo server, so yes, anyregionchanger uses internet.

    Best solution for you, dude. If you only want to use the loaders, then well, you don't need to update. But if you insist on updating, go for SSBB.

    ok i figured it would, just wasn't sure

    poolman i believe these are your only options at this point... i'd go rent SSBB and update that way, or like afif95 and i said you can still play backups on your 3.1(3.2 is only the shit because you can install starfall)

    wow thanks. I installed gamma with rev7 on it and its running perfect. the WUM Wii Update Manager is a great resource. thanks for the link.
    I tried NFS Undercover on my 3.3U softmodded and came up with a error #002. From a couple threads some believe this is caused by not being on 3.4.

    You can use the Wii Update Manager to change the update of any games to the 3.2 firmware update. It worked for me before I was connected to the Net.

    But your latest post suggest that you are now on 3.3 firmware? Hmm...
