    Hi,

    I have a softmoded wii. It is 4.2U and now I have a slight problem - no matter what Wii game disc I put into the Wii, the disc channel shows me the update banner and says I have to update the Wii before I can play the game.

    Is there a solution to this problem, aside from backing-up every game I have to a USB drive and playing off of the USB drive or updating?

    Thanks in advance.

    install priiloader, and download hacks.ini, and then enable the system menu hack to disable updates

    or u can use modmii to tell u the same thing + download the files u need

    What XFlak said.

    It'll also give you many nice features like disc channel movement, copying protected saves, among others if you enable them.

    Thanks for the replies guys!

    But I would like to avoid hacking the System Menu. Can I just update to 4.3U then softmod the wii again?

    no, when u update then re-softmod, your IOS249 will not be stubbed so u will still be prompted to update

    fyi, installing priiloader makes ur wii safer, so don't fear "hacking your system menu"

    I see. 4.3 continuously checks to see if the ios249 is stubbed?

    It's not a system menu check. It's stubbed any time the wii is updated officially.

    If you wanted you could update with DOP-Mii or something. That'd allow you to update what you want without being forced to have IOS's stubbed.

    Or get cIOS 202, 222, 223, 249, and 250 as WADs, install to 4.3, use MMM to get rid of the stubs, and safely reinstall those using WAD Manager (considering you have IOS236)

    What's MMM?

    Just out of curiousity - what would cause the disc channel to give me the update banner? Would any game with the update on the disc cause it? Because the game that gave me the banner was Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and this worked fine on my 4.2U wii before softmodding.

    Thanks,
    Shamino

    please use modmii to build u a guide, that's what i built it for, so I don't need to explain this stuff! lol

    but seriously, just run modmii, and follow the instructions, its safe to do from the start even if ur wii is already hacked, and it will update all of your softmods and ios's and block these updates

    A disc with an update will try to update whenever it detects an IOS that is older than the update. Odds are you downgraded an ios when you soft modded, hence the disc with the update is trying to reupdate it.
