    I soft modded my wii months ago and I had:
    Wii version 3.2
    Preloader
    Homebrew channel


    What had changed in the last few months? I am looking to play gamecube games and update my wii to the latest version, how would I go about doing that? Is there a reason to update to 4.1u?

    I looked in the stickies with no luck because I am not sure if they apply to me. Can anyone help?

    Another question: Will Bootmii and CIOScrop brick my wii?

    bootmii enables you to make a backup of your nand so if you brick you can restore your wii to a previous working state
    use this guide to update http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=144835
    then install cmios rev3 and use gamecube backup launcher 0.2

    now there is nand emulation on sd/usb, that's pretty cool
    it lets you run vc/wiiware from it

    Some questions:
    Is that faster than launching from the SD card?
    Will I gain a speed boost if I upgrade to 4.0?
    Is CIOSCROP 3.0 fully compatible with 3.2u?

    I read a few months ago that my wii can only run .dol files, not .elf files. Is that true?

    it runs directly from sd/usb, so no copying to the wii nand first like system menu 4.0/4.1 does
    i don't know if it's faster than running from wii nand itself, i haven't tested games that do a lot of loading yet. I think Monkey Island would be good game to test that, it has long loading times.
