    I have a virgin WII with 4.0U. Should I update (via Nintendo) before I proceed with a softmod?

    Is it better to start with 4.2 or should I leave it at 4.0?

    Update and softmod using the Complete SOftmod Guide. Search for it.

    Leaving it at 4.0 makes softmodding easier than it is on 4.2.

    You can update to 4.2 and follow xzxero's guide

    or use the trucha 4.1/lower part of the guide in my sig and you'll end up with 4.1 (although you can skip the update to 4.1 and keep 4.0 too since it uses the same IOS)

    If you don't know this:
    You can use xzxero's guide WITHOUT updating to 4.2 first

    Like that you can skip updating and removing the stub IOS, which makes it 2 steps shorter [​IMG]

    No, I didn't. As far as I remember, I never used any guide, when it came to Wii. I simply didn't need any. So what do you want to tell me?

    xzxero's guide references "update.zip" from simplisticmod@gmail.com - what is in the file and where else can I get it?
