    With the imminent release of Super Smash Bros Brawl in PAL countries and the current release of 3.3 firmware, it will most likely be, that 3.3 firmware will be included with SSBB.
    My question, is there anyway to bypass the update on the original disc, on a non modded console, so that we can keep 3.2 firmware in tact and still play SSBB?

    Wasn't freeloader suppose to implement something that would prevent disc updates?

    Use the Freeloader twice (after a blur-moving-screen finished, eject the freeloader and put it back again), it will bypass the update....

    Use it while you can.... after FW3.3.... freeloader 's useless.....

    I haven't preordered Brawl because I thought this was going to happen. I've already got the dual layer disc update so hopefully I can brickblock a PAL Brawl and play that.
    The Freeloader should work with an actual copy of the game so you should try that when its released. For me, if nothing works I'll just keep playing NTSC-U Brawl.

    I doubt SSBB PAL includes the 3.3 update, anyway, so this is probably a non-issue.

    But yeah, both Freeloader and Gecko Region Free should bypass the update.

    The only way to do it is to turn off at ~15% completion. You have to hope that it installs the dual-layer part, but doesn't install the rest of the update.

    Unless they have updated the update method.
