    I'm pretty sure it will, he knows more about the system menu and IOS than us so let him do his thing.

    i can confirm wanin is in the middle of his 4.2 updater... i must say tho.. this is one of the bigger updaters you will have to deal with.. theres a lot of stuff to download and patch.. could be anotehr day or two before we see an official release..

    You all are the one's that are also fast as well. For those wanting to play NSMB Wii and use a usb loader, couldn't they try to find a ISO of it without the update(s) or even with that won't install? [​IMG]

    Oh, I'm sure working solutions with the latest IOS files and hex modified System Menu 4.2 and the newest Shop Channel will be released before Waninkoko releases anything. [​IMG]

    Actually, thinking about it, it wouldn't really be that hard to do. Do a cIOSCORP WAD installer type of thing to install everything you need.

    It would install of course but it may check that you have 4.2 before it runs, or it might require IOS70, or who knows what.

    Right Behind You! Uh Oh!
    there seems to be people already using the homebrew channel on 4.2 under another title so thats encouraging but i imagine that waninkoko will make a much more user friendly method in the days to come for those with the need to update..Kudos and even though i intend to chill on 3.2 thanks again for being the man w/ the plan waninkoko and if your reading whats up linkinworm [​IMG]

    I highly doubt that NSMB Wii will require 4.2, because it would have to be on the disk to ensure everybody had it. The latest games coming out still only have 3.4, when 4.0 has been out for a bit now... Plus it would seem easy to bypass the check the game would make.

    I'm sticking with 3.4. I actually wish I was still on 3.2, but oh wells.... I'm not going to hassle with downgrading. Installing IOSes hasn't been that big a deal.

    EDIT: Looking at WiiBrew, 4.0 came out on March 25th. Wii Sports Resort came out 3 months later, still only had 3.4 on it.

    Can someone please explain why we all care about updating to 4.2? We all know that it erases all homebrew from your system....but what else does it do? Is there actually ANY reason anyone can give me that I should update once Waninkoko releases his homebrew-safe upgrader?

    I think that the Wii Shop Channel has an update.

    Everyone is always wanting the latest and greatest.
    It updates the Shop Channel, and the System Menu now runs on IOS70 (supposedly a performance increase...I doubt it, though).
