    Okay, My reason for posting a thread asking a Question asked atleast 6 times before is because all the other posts are atleast 1 month old and I would like to know if anything's new and all.

    I want to upgrade to 4.0, SD loader is so cool!, I could have all the wiiware I WANT!. Sure, it does copy it every time you want to play it but.. my computers been reading and copying for years.. and it still runs as if it was bought yesterday..

    I know how to do it, but I would like to know your opinions concering system menu 4.0 and the risk factor if you may.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've upgraded from 3.2 to 4.0 using waninkoko's updater. That leaves the trucha bug intact. And with the patched ios60, i can run all my vc/wiiware games using the sd feature, including the pirated ones.
    Before upgrading, I made backup of my 3.2 nand using bootmii. There were some reports of that updater sometimes bricking the wii. So I never risked it before. But with the safety provided by bootmii, I finally did it.

    Advantages, SD Loader... well, that's all I can think about.
    Disadvantages, chance to brick (nulled with bootmii), TP hack lost (nulled by bannerbomb), chance to block homebrew (if you don't have the cIOS installed beforehand).

    I upgraded a while ago and it's worked fine for me. I only had to install preloader instead of starfall and I've got everything I need. Other than that, I never lost anything, and now I've got the SD Loader for my VC channels, so all's good.
