    IIRC, it's because they didn't have enough free space on the NAND.

    If you have at least 300 free blocks, nothing bad should happen.

    Ok well i have this guide and im leaning towards method 1.What are the main differences?BTW this is not my guide this is what im using though I just want to know what the differences are

    Method 1: Updates all IOS files to newest. (for newer games)

    Put the contents of the 4.0hacktools.rar file on the sd card.

    Open Homebrew Channel and run IOS60 installer, when it boots it will ask the following:

    "do you want to download and install IOS61?" SAY NO PRESS B
    "do you want to download and install IOS60?" SAY YES PRESS A
    "do you want to patch IOS60?" SAY YES PRESS A

    After it's installed IOS60 it'll ask:

    "do you want to download and install the newest shop channel?" SAY NO PRESS B.

    Restart Wii.

    You are done simply connect to the internet by doing a connection test and download 4.0 update

    Method 2: (Keeps all but IOS60, IOS61 from previous updates)

    Put the contents of the 4.0hacktools.rar file on the sd card.

    Put contents of Waninkoko's 4.0 updater on the sd card

    Open Homebrew Channel and run IOS60 installer, when it boots it will ask the following:

    "do you want to download and install IOS61?" SAY NO PRESS B
    "do you want to download and install IOS60?" SAY YES PRESS A
    "do you want to patch IOS60?" SAY YES PRESS A

    After it's installed IOS60 it'll ask:

    "do you want to download and install the newest shop channel?" SAY NO PRESS B.

    Restart Wii.

    Now use Waninkoko's 4.0 updater and follow prompts.
