    I'm on menu 4.2U. Because I have been messing with my IOSs (for USB loading), My copy of Wii Sports Resort wants me to update to 4.2U again. While I can load it from USB Loader GX, my family won't do that. Is there any way I can block the update without having to load it through GeckoOS or something? I also want to keep BootMii, so I don't want to install Priiloader.
    Any suggestions?

    installing priiloader doesnt delete bootmii
    you won't get a better answer than that,if you really don't like it,use startpatch

    Really? I was under the impression that it was a boot2 replacement, and thus would overwrite BootMii. I'll try, and if not, no harm done; I can reinstall BootMii. Thanks!

    EDIT- The WiiBrew page says to not install it if you have modified IOSs. Is this true, or just an anti-piracy thing?

    Priiloader comes right after Bootmii if you have your sd card in,it goes Bootmii/boot2->Priiliader->System Menu
    that probably means modified System menu IOS,as long as you haven't modified the SM IOS,you should be safe,especially since you have Bootmii

    Wii Sports Resort do not have any 4.2 update, you should be secure to update it, just make a NAND backup just incase and update.

    Hahaha, WIN. This should go on bash.org [​IMG]


    And @Salax:
    Go ahead and install Preloader, it shouldn't be a problem. Priiloader 0.3b just came out today, so you should install that, and make sure to get the correct hacks for your system menu version here (place them on the root of your SD card in a text file called "hacks.ini").
