    I thought it was the way to enter in Sysmenu thats why I said it didnt work for me. Anyway I tried without sig patcher and it still doesnt work
    EDIT: Ok after some research I realized I have no Haxchi icon on my menu but I remember installing it in Brain Training. It even allows me to reinstall it even If I can´t find the game. Also no, I didnt install coldboot, the haxchi and the NDS Game both disappeared without reason

    You are goin all around the instructions. The instructions clearly asks you use either haxchi or mocha. Mocha is a free option. Once that’s done, you have to use the ftpion for the method you have followed (there is more than 1 version)

    You aren’t willing to follow simple instructions and decide to continue “winging it”, I strongly suggest you stay away from this whole procedure. You are doing something to your system nand and the procedure is not to be taken lightly. The way you are approaching this, I see a brick coming your way.

    I am sorry to be so blunt, but come on dude..

    Its ok I was dumb enought to dont understand the H icon on Wii its both Haxchi and Homebrew Channel. Has been a while away from the scene but now I learnt to restart into cfw and could continue the guide. It worked too, so thanks for the guide and for trying to help me.

    TL;DR for everyone as dumb as me: Go the h icon on the menu and wait for the bubble, hold the button that the bubble says is to enter cfw mode while Homebrew Launcher is booting (In my case I had to hold A while booting Homebrew Launcher) If it returns to the menu you can continue with the guide.

    Hi I followed the method for blocking updates by deleting the update file in storage_mic/sys/ from page 1s guide. When trying to update it said my software is up to date (5.5.3) . It didn't come up with the error message "105-3012". Am I still alright to go online and update the games I have ? Minecraft updated ok and Cpt Toad. Am I been a bit over cauious ?

    I asked the same thing when I did it. It's fine, it doesn't stop it from being able to check for updates, it stops it being able to download and install an update if there is one.

    Thanks and i can still play online too. For example smash bros and mario kart ? FYI If people are having trouble still theres a few very useful vids on youtube to help. I had trouble with one of the files on "ftpiiu everywhere" which i had to replace.

    The info you have been getting is correct. This procedure doesn’t hinder any interne services, so it checks it just fine. You are on the latest firmware so it didn’t find anything to error out on.

    What this actually does is that, when an update is available, it tries to download it, which requires a directory for it to be in (in this case, update directory), but it can’t find it, so it errors out.

    Ah, dammit. That’s because it was hosted on filetrip, which is now gone.. I’d ont have the picture anymore.

    Are you trying to restore the folder? Cause if not, you don’t need to input anything. That’s only in the case of restoration.

    If you are trying to delete it, just make a note of what the permissions were before deleting it (and maybe post a screenshot here since we don’t have it anymore).

    Also, I am fairly certain that the file permission part is not even needed. It was just some extra precaution from my side

    1. PC: Right-click, and select "Create Directory". Once created, right-click again, and select "File Permissions".
    I guess the name of that directory must be "update", right?
