    Hey guys, I was wondering whether it would be possible to update my system menu from 3.2E to 4.1E using a wad file.

    I was thinking of grabbing bannerbomb and WAD installer, and using those 2 to install the wad. That would work just fine, no? I've seen some people say the Wii will be bricked then, but surely that's just nonsense?

    For the record, I'm not attempting to softmod my Wii. I just want to update my system menu with a wad file.

    yes its totally possible, my guide updates it this way.
    get the wad with NUSD.
    your probably going to have to restore the trucha bug before can install wads but yea basically you have the method right.

    I suppose you could, but it would probably be easier if you used bannerbomb to run Wanininko's 4.1 updater. I believe there is some sort of offline way to do it. In my experience, just installing the SM wad confuses things. Maybe it was something I did, but it didn't work quite right.

    You certainly can try, but the update requires more updates (of IOS files) then just the system menu. I guess if you get all those things, you can do it.

    @xzxzero:

    I don't want to install any wads after this. I'm not interested in softmodding this console - my other console already is.


    @drmarvin:

    IOS15, 16, 36 and 38 should be installed as well, I assume. Or I could indeed get waninkoko's 4.1 updater...


    Just to get it straight: There's no need to install 4.0 first?

    Make sure you install ios60 before 4.1
