I have a PAL console and a Cyclowiz. The console is at version 3.1E and the Cyclowiz is now at 3.6BETA. I do not want the duplicate news and weather channels. The Metroid Prime 3 trick of removing the power at 10% of the update DOESN'T WORK and will brick your wii. I have tried using brickblocker and that just hits a black blank screen soon as you press start to begin the game. I've tried switching the discs about and even run the iso through brickblocker again and region frii. Nothing. Has anyone managed to avoid the duplicates yet? If so, how? Other failed effort methods appreciated also.
