    I've had my Wii softmodded for a while. When I got the backup launcher, I had to downgrade my Wii to 3.2u. This rendered my Animal Crossing: City Folk disc (retail purchased disc) to give me that System update prompt, leaving me unable to play. Now however, I've done the unofficial update to 4.0 firmware and I still get this message. If I let the Wii install this update, will I get bricked? If so, is there a way to bypass this so I can play Animal Crossing from the Disc Channel again?

    You need IOS38, I think. (It can be extracted from the game by following these intructions: http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/Updating_IOS_by_hand)

    Updating straight from is relatively harmless; it's just the standard 3.3v1, with IOS38. Nothing that'll screw homebrew over immensely.
