I really like Modmii and I am using it on my friend's wii now. He has 4.0U and when I run the wizard, it recommends that I upgrade to 4.1. Why not 4.2?

Thanks.

4.2 adds nothing new, neither does 4.3, the only thing they add is Anti-piracy. It is completely safe to update to 4.2 though, you can still use bannerbomb and everything, just make sure you are using the latest homebrew channel, as older ones may get deleted.

with a modchip 4.1 allows out of region games to play from disc. With 4.2 and 4.3 only same region only.
Usbloader's it doesn't really matter.

From my minimal understanding, 4.1 is the latest you NEED to play some of the newer games as backups, provided you take steps to prevent disc updates.

If you're USB loading and you have the latest HBC, CIOS249, and Hermes setup, there is no reason why 4.3 couldn't be your systemmenu of choice.

4.1 is the recommended because it fixes the bug in WSR....it was the last SM which had any functions added....4.2/4.3 did nothing but attempt to kill homebrew.

4.0 added SD support for WW/VC storage...

....in actuality though, newer games can technically play on any SM, because they play independent of the SM....as long as your IOSes are up to date, any game should play....

...but this is very much true as well....

A chipped Wii can't play import games if it has SM 4.2 or above (unless ofcourse it is also softmodded and you use a loader, but the chip itself can't).
