    Hi,

    Im trying to make this for someone who asked me..and i'm kinda stuck.
    He has a console 3.4 and wants to upgrade the most as "safe" as it can be....so i want to change a 3.4E to 4.1E.

    Now...i wanted to avoid waninkoko method, cause i've heard some nasty stuff since the last update to 4.2. A friend's wii has even got a blackbrick after 4.1 updater.

    So options:

    1 - Get a game disk with 4.0 or 4.1 updates (not existing). I've heard wiifitPlus in Japan has 4.1 can anyone confirm?
    2 - Find how bushing did the WUM database, and replace an existing update in a game disk to the one i need.
    3 - Use DOP-IOS v8 to do it....i think its my best choice, but i really would need a noob tutorial to do this.
    4 - Use Offline method with NUS for IOS:

    IOS16
    IOS38
    IOS60 v61
    IOS61
    System Menu 4.1

    To this...i would need every version, so i wouldnt mix up things...right?

    5 - Update to 4.2 and start from there... i would like to avoid this.
    6 - Give up.

    So..what you guys think about it?
    Any help would be great.

    have used it to downgrade but not upgrade not sure if it grabs the new or old IOS60 just use dop-ios and install the system menu wad it's the safest way i think cause you can make sure you have the right IOS60 before installing the wad file
