So, do you HAVE to update the wii to v 4.0 to play the newest games? I brick blocked some new games like punch out, and they worked fine at the disc screen, but after i hit start, I get the blank black screen and my wiimotes wont connect to the wii. I'm not operating on 4.0, because I am using homebrew channel to install and play wiiware games fine. Anyone have any ideas here. If it matters, the games were scrubbed according to the nfo's, which i then brick blocked and burned. Again, the disc screen recognizes it, but when i hit play i get a blank black screen.
