    That's because it doesn't contain an update.

    You have to wait till a game has one.

    You're lying, it really updated your wii and fixed your semi brick.

    That is not a update, more like a download. Think of it like a download such as the internet channel. An Update changes your WII's firmware.

    you start the game and then in a menu you can install it, NOT from an update.
    fix your semibrick with SSBB

    Mario Kart Wii DOES include an update. Atleast the PAL version does.

    My semi-bricked wii was fixed by installing the update that came with mario kart.

    The reason you're not gettign an update is probably that you have the same firmware version that's on Mario Kart Wii.

    I don't know what you're not understanding.

    If it didn't fix your Wii then that's it, you're just going to have to wait for a game with a newer firmware version than you bricked you Wii with.

    The update won't activate if you have an update previously installed that is better than the Mario Kart update.

    My friends no chipped pal wii installed an update but my chipped pal wii which had the NTSC SSBB update on didn't require it.
