ok i just tried to use the unplug trick to play Metroid Prime 3. I did the 10-15% but when I turned my Wii again, it still asks for an update. I did it again but still its not working. my count was 14 seconds for the first one and the second one was a bit faster because the bar moved a little faster. no dual channels and settings still work btw. I just borrowed the game from a friend who plays it normally on his US Wii. thanks for the help!
