    Hey gbatempers, I currently have a wii running 3.2 firmware and I want to update it. I have the homebrew channel and starfall currently installed and that is about it. I am not sure if I am going to get into backups at the moment so I would like to update to be able to us the Netflix service. So, if I just delete my homebrew channel and update should I be safe? Can I use Netflix on 3.2 without having to fiddle with anything? Would I be able to backup later if I do update?

    You never need to update your system menu; Nintendo just feels like making you update, so they put the update on the disc. Load the game through Gecko OS.

    Scratch that, I think I do have a backup loader but I am not sure if it gecko. So it would bypass the need for the update?

    I also had 3.2 w/Starfall and my Netflix wouldnt run (disc error #002) until I updated it to 4.2. Dont know if it needed it but it worked for me..

    ANY loader, for disc or USB, will bypass the update.(update is not needed)
    Neogamma, uloader, etc.....
    You can use the original Netflix disc, or a burned copy to do this.
    Keep in mind, you'll need a netflix account to watch.
    I registered for a 15 day free trail with a burned disc, and set it up for a wireless device
    (the Wii was'nt listed yet on their site.)
    I've watched about 11 movies so far and all works well, as long as you live in the states.
