I have a softmodded 3.2U Wii (homebrew channel, no bootmii installed) and I have recently had the need to update it so I can play new games (mainly New Super Mario Bros Wii). I would like to have a few questions answered. Also, I would like to note I have no need for back-up launchers and the such. Feel free to send me a link to a tutorial to save yourself time. Well, so here are my questions: 1. Should I update my Wii to the latest version so I can play new games, or is there a way to get around that even though I am using 3.2? 2. If I need to update my Wii to 4.2, what programs can I use to update it so that I can still use the HomeBrew channel and other hacks? 3. If I don't need to update to 4.2, what programs can I use to update all the IOS's and to boot new games without using the wii menu (to get around updating)? 4. Is bootmii a must have, and if so, are there any risks? 5. Is there any other things that I need to know before doing any of the above steps? Thank you for dealing with my complete noobness, but I have searched everywhere and haven't really got any info that helped, and I figure that I should get info from the best. Thank you for your time Edit: I did some (more) searching around and I found this: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=184057 Is this what I should use?
