    So I followed http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=171901 and it worked flawlessly. (I am rather noobish I apologize in advance if this is a dumb question)

    I did have a question about Backups if anyone could help me out. I know I can run WiiBrickBlock on the ISO images of the backups, however when when I purchase a retail game, should I not use it until I created a backup and ran WiiBrickBlock on the ISO?

    If anyone could help me out with an answer on this one, that would be great!

    Im not sure if StarFall would work or not in conjunction with the Mod I used on the link above? anyone know?

    just launch the retail game from a loader.
    It wont update.
    And if your paranoid, clear your wireless internet in your wii settings.

    Ok so it sounds like just enabling WiFi when I want to use an online service is the best option?

    Is it a bad idea to ever play a game online? It sounds like this doesnt happen to often (a game bricking the system)

    The i used Backup Loader 0.3 btw

    Sorry for being a newbie but,

    the way it is worded that the only "updates" that can break my Wii from running a retail or game through Backup Launcher is if they were not NTSC....

    if I stick to only NTSC do I not need to worry about BrickBlocker or StarFall and can run them with Wifi enabled/ play online

    Thanks in advance

    just launch the retail from a loader, use Neogamma R7, cIOS249 rev14, and you'll be able to play online also, with no worries for updates, and if it does ask to update, by chance, just shut off the Wii.
    No harm done...................
