    I have 3.3u and was wondering what the optimal firmware was? I don't have any problems running homebrew or backups just curious.

    In my opinion 3.2 is the best.

    Clearly 3.2 with Starfall and the 2 autoboot options enabled. This way you can recover from a brick from a bad wad.

    There is no question under 3.3 is by far better than any above 3.2 [​IMG]
    3.2 is simply the best and you know it.

    for now 3.2 is the best , but version 5.3 is also looking promising

    until "prelude cSM 3.4" is released by Forsaekn, 3.2 is the best

    Yes 5.3 is very promising, it adds blu-ray support. Looking forward to that!

    On 3.2, install Starfall, and enable "Disable disc updates"

    Best go with 3.2 since there are programs that are only compatible with it. Starfall being one of them. Starfall bullet proofs you're Wii.

    I have a question. Can I downgrade my E3.3 Wii (it is the first 3.3 update) to 3.2E?
    Is there a tutorial? Thanks
