    First of all, stick with xzxero´s guide here in the forum.

    Do what it says and you will be playing games on 4.1 soon.

    Most important update to 4.1 using Waninkokos Firmware updater, not the official update as 4.2 is out ruining everything homebrew related.

    Also 4.2U has a bad boot2 updater, its bricked quite a few Wii's, especially those who never have used Homebrew before (because Homebrew users don;t update through Nintendo generally).

    Hmm, AFAIK mIOS is for backuped GC games right? IDK, but when they work without installing let it be, if not install it.

    don't update 4.2 offers nothing worth updating.
