    is it possible to soft mod the newest wiis with 4.0firmware?

    or will they just brick?

    I upgraded my wii with punch out the other day and hopefully didnt fuck it up.

    if you softmodded before the update, homebrew should be fine, but ISO's won't play.

    if you havent modded yet, you can't do it with 4.0...yet.

    edit: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/System_Menu_4.0#Regional_summaries_of_changes has a list of workarounds for menu 4.0. I don't know if something new is going to get brought up or if thats it for now.

    Bannerbomb works if you're on the latest firmware and want to install The Homebrew Channel.

    And it is done. Took a while to install 4.0 but the rest went pretty quick.

    Super easy to do.

    Told ya it'd work.

    You don't have the USB Loader yet or is that what you're tying to figure out right now?

    Ok, I got Homebrew channel loaded. That was easier than the Twilight Hack! :rofl:

    Now do I just go through the usual downgrade process like with 3.3 and 3.4?

    Following this. Now the apps won't show in Homebrew??? They showed the first time when I first ran the Bannerbomb and installed Homebrew/DVDx. I went through that again, and it still didn't show?

    i never did the upgrade method. I think you need to upgrade your homebrew chan also.

    You only need to downgrade if you're planning on using the USB Loader if you're on firmware 4.0. If you're not, you can be on the latest firmware and have the homebrew channel installed through bannerbomb.

    Right, but when I try to play a burned game, I get the NO cIOS error through . When I would get this, I would have to downgrade in order for .3 gamma bootloader to work. Is this not the case?

    Finally got it working. Turns out the files weren't named boot.dol/.elf, they were like bootloaderv3.dol. :uh:

    Had to use the Offline Upgrade method in the end anyway. :dunno:

    God damn, I may need to charge the same price as the 360 for all that bullshit. :rofl:
