    I recently updated my wii firmware because i wasn't able to play SMGalaxy2 w/o doing so, thought this would be fine since I've updated firmware a bunch of times before and flatmii would still work.

    anyway I tried to play super mario bros [pal] on my ntsc system and i get a "system could not read disk" message, tested things out and found out only ntsc games will play, meaning the "force ISO region" feature is not working anymore...

    *the short version:
    -firmware update 4.3u
    -flatmii mod
    -PAL games wont work

    please help?

    system menu 4.2 and higher have better region detection. no modchip can bypass this. you can use a homebrew game loader to play the game, but not from the system menu.
