    I believe I'm on 4.2 or maybe even 4.1. I hacked my Wii a few years back and am just curious if it's worth updating and if so should I update the firmware via Nintendo and then use ModMii to hack it again or is that a bad idea with an already hacked Wii?

    I forgot
    Just use Modmii, you don't really need to update via Nintendo.

    I think you should sell the Wii or give it to someone who won't brick it by doing something that pretty much every tutorial tells you not to do.. Just use modmii, it'll update all of the stuff, the system menu version really doesn't mean jack these days.

    As has already been said, you should use ModMii to update the files on your Wii. The easiest way is to run a sysCheck and allow ModMii to analyze it and update the necessary files. As for your system menu, it doesn't really matter what version you're on. System Menu 4.1 was the last system menu to offer anything new; System Menus 4.2 and 4.3 were just for anti-homebrew. All that really matters are the IOS and cIOS files on your Wii. Just let ModMii take care of those.
