    Turn WiFi off
    Boot into "safe mode" (Volume UP and Down while pressing the Power Button) <- Will reset the Update Data on your System
    reboot and try to start the Game

    Without homebrew access and some sort of httpwn type of exploit no. Game servers check your current version against the most recent os version. Even with updates blocked you can't currently spoof what firmware you are on.
