    1-games that require update.?
    these updates can be blocked(using priiloader), though some games like black ops require these to play online

    2-does wiiconnect24 brick a modded wii
    mine is always turned off. It is system updates the can brick it i believe.

    3-is wiiconnect24 for system update or just news and weather?
    yes it can system update, if i remember correctly.

    4-what do u prefer original or modded wii?
    modded

    5-what happen if i dont update the system at all i have version 4.3
    4.3 is the most recent, updates arent usually required, i know alot of people still use 3.2

    and finally how to know the region of a game plz help a noob thanks in advance
    I usually find these out by opening a backed up game in wii backupmanager, though as im in England, all of my game backups are PAL. The regions are usually PAL for Europe, NTSC for USA.

    All your major questions have been asked and answered before...As this is your first post, this can be overlooked, but it is common forum courtesy to search for the answer before creating a new post if the answer could not be found....

    1-games that require update.?
    It is not clear what you are asking here. Generally, if you use a disc or USB loader you don't have to update your main system files. Loaders use cIOS to play games so you just need to update your cIOS, and only then if you have a game that requires so. Their are recommended cIOS slot & base combinations that will cover most if not all your game loading needs. Read about cIOS >here

    Well, power failures can harm the Wii just like power failures can harm any electronic device. You need to take care if you are writing to the Wii's NAND while the power goes out, as you can brick your Wii if what was being written is a vital system file. So like when you flash firmware of any device, when messing with the Wii's NAND (updating firmware, IOSes, system files) use an uninterruptable power supply (UPS) if your power service is sub standard.

    As for what channels like Everybody Votes are available in Pakistan, I am foggy on how the Wii determines what is available to it via the Shop Channel and such. Anybody feel free to add input here [​IMG] Assuming you have a NTSC-U Wii (USA), you should be able to access channels/content available to USA Wii's like Everybody Votes. The use of certain services is blocked regionally like the BBC iPlayer channel is only available to UK Wiis. I don't think Nintendo will care that you are using internet access from Pakistan. Let us know if certain channels/content are blocked from a Pakistan IP.

    As far as piracy goes, it is heavily frowned upon here so I won't go into it. I will say that Nintendo has not pro-actively detected softmods and disabled hacked Wii's yet. They have updated firmware to try to circumvent softmods. You should not be worried about being "detected" by Nintendo. Nintendo has banned Wii's from online gaming, however, if they are caught using cheats.

    EDIT: Umm, all of sudden posts are missing from the this thread...Moderators: something wrong?
    EDIT2: Seems like the forums are experiencing technical difficulties, lol... (As if anyone can read this...)
