    With the release of firmware 3.4, I guess I won't be updating anymore. I'm right now on firmware 3.2. However, I fear that future automatic updates from discs might update my Wii automatically. Is there a Wii homebrew that enables me to block every automatic firmware update? For some reason I think StarFall does,but I don't remember well and I think I'm just guessing. Any help would be appreciated. (And I can't use Trucha signer to remove the updates since I don't burn my own isos.)

    I wish people would stop calling it 3.4, because it really isn't. Starfall can block updates, though.

    IANAL, but I think I remember reading that an update without asking the user is illegal.

    For most games with an update, GeckoOS can bypass the update process of the disc.

    IT IS NOT 3.4
    Holy mother of atheism.

    Run Starfall and choose what patches you want.

    I've been able to play MKWii on my 3.2U wii with star fall. I think it depends on the game though, some games MIGHT not work. But usually they will work.
