    we are at hacked system menu 4.0 now we have a bout a million version of usb loader even a cover flow one which si super cool we can install homebrew on 4.0 via bannerbomb now bootmii is about to release we have starpatch(starfall for 4.0) plus we got a fll guake mod on the wii to make it look like halo oh yeah and also we can run backups from the disc channel

    4.0 is the newest official release by Nintendo

    Anything else interesting happen after USB loader came out?
    Not really, SD card loading was implemented and heaps of people made different GUI's but thats all

    What will be needed to play Punchout?
    Nothing special im guessing

    A brand new, out-of-the-UPS-truck Wii is likely to have system menu 4.0 installed.
    Fortunately, Comex's BannerBomb is a way around this. Be wary of the LU64 serial though. I'm not sure what it really means and all, but there will be bricking if DVDx and stuff like that is installed, I'm sure.

    A fairly new Wii is likely to have 3.4-4.0. Again, be wary of the serial.

    In all actuality, if you want a 100% homebrew, pirateable, what-not Wii, I would actually reccomend buying used, as is my reccomendations on PSPs.

    Thanks for the info

    If I install a newer (mines like 1.0 or 1.1) USB loader do I need to reinstall the games I had or will they be recognized by the new version/new loader?

    Is there a good guide to upgrade to 4.0 and keep most everything I had with 3.2?

    If you could please tell me what you think I should install as I am on 3.2
