Waninkoko 4.1 Upgrader ( i would recommend...) With DownLink

<_>!WARNING!<_> Themer's beware as this may not work with 4.0 Themes!
Waninkoko 4.1 Upgrader I would personally recommend this if you play Wii Sports Resort because it stops the VC/WiiWare Game Glitch.
Waninkoko has released a 4.1 System Menu Updater, this updater is for those that wan't to keep trucha in earlier IOS versions, etc.
Quote:
[ DESCRIPTION ]:
- This application allows you to update your console's firmware, installing *only* the
most important updates (System IOS, System Menu, new channels...).
Thanks to this you can keep some features like Trucha bug that affected first IOS
versions.
[ REQUISITES ]:
- 150-250 free blocks.
- Internet connection.
[ HOW TO USE ]:
- Run the application with any method to load homebrew and the update will be done
automatically.

Also i would just like to add, I upgraded from 4.0 from 3.2 Using waninkoko's 4.0 Upgrader and Everything still works. I can still install wads, change theme etr, I expect this will alow you to do the same. The only thing i would remember before upgrading is that some of the themes you have got may not work with 4.1 so WATCH OUT.

Warning!
This homebrew makes permanent changes to your Wii's flash memory (NAND) and should be used with caution.

StartPatch is a homebrew application that patches your System Menu v4.0, v4.1, v4.2 or v4.3 in a similar fashion as Starfall. It is based upon Menu Patcher by Isaac356.

Brick Warning

In the unlikely case that you lose power during patching process, you may brick your Wii. This will only happen if you lose power while the patches are being applied, and as this is a quick process, there is small risk of bricking. However, if you do brick, no one is responsible. There is no warranty with this app. You should take a BootMii NAND dump and have BootMii installed as boot2 (if possible) as a precaution.

Preloader & StartPatch

Some of these hacks don't play well when Preloader has applied similar hacks.

If you would like to apply a patch in StartPatch, please disable it in Preloader first!
