    I'm currently on 3.2 with homebrew channel installed. I read through this topic http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=145914&st=15, but I'm still not too sure on the procedure.

    I have ios60-64-v6174.wad, but when I drag it into freethebug, it doesn't patch anything. Do I really need to patch it?

    To upgrade to 4.0 offline, do I just need to install the above wad or do I need to install some system menu or something? thanks

    is the part in your guide with preloader when upgrading to 4.1 necessary? I've never used preloader before.
