    Hi people,
    I could not find an answer to my specific configuration, so I hope you can help me with this:

    I have a PAL wii with Wiikey (original version) that I updated to the latest wiikey fw (1.9s), I also installed Homebrew channel.
    Since I also use games that were scrubbed, I realized that updating to the official 4.0E firmware will block those games from running (BTW - am I wrong here?), so I upgraded the wii to 4.0E hacked firmware by wanikoko.

    Lately, with more recent games, I encountered titles that still wanna update the system (e.g Pikmin, Punch Out).
    1. Is it safe to run these updates?
    2. If not, is there a way to update the current firmware with missing components so these games can run?

    BTW
    I managed to install gamma backup loader and run Punch Out, but since the main users of the console are my kids, I would like to find a solution that will run the games simply by inserting the DVD, like they are used to do on all other games.

    Thanks

    * oops, sorry. I meant to post it in the noob questions thread.

    Install preloader.

    i had the same problem with mine. I used the safe 4.0 updater. and then blocked updates from discs.

    We had the original Mario tennis game here and the girlfriend put it in to play while i was out and installed the update. Needless to say it screwed up a lot of things, but im all back to normal now with it...

    Yeah, Preloader is good for the hacks and protection.
