I am currently on 4.1U and have seen that 4.2 is available. Is there any need to actually upgrade at this time? Are there games that require 4.2 yet? Thanks for your help!

Stay at 4.1 if u want Region free. 4.2 is just to "Remove" Homebrew

None of the games require 4.2
If i were you i wouldn't upgrade.
A lot of people have problems like bricking, because of stubs etc.
And if you are not carefully, you will lose your console. if your wii is now working perfectly, playing backups etc, i wouldnt touch it anymore (mess around with it too much will cause you a brick)

GoldenRule: Better having a working console then a bricked one..

I still want to update a few things. I need to update to JODI HBC as well as Preloader .30
Besides that, I think I will be ok, unless you can suggest something else

Best reason to upgrade is to prevent a brick or deletion of homebrew due to an accidental upgrade with an official firmware.

I have always kept mine at the latest firmware so when other family members are using original disks the system does not prompt for an upgrade.

I understand that....but is it necessary to upgrade if I have preloader already? What is the need for upgrading? What does HBC JODI and Preloader .3 do differently than HBC Haxx and Preloader .29

Or you could block the updates using Startpatch or Preloader or just run the game from a loader.
