    I just bought Mario kart but when I put the game in it says I need a system update to play it. Well Nintendo just released a new system menu up-date that is anti homebrew so I just want to make sure that using the mario kart update won't kill my homebrew.

    so the question is will using mario kart kill my homebrew?

    As far as I know. Games do not come with firmware updates. Just small updates to make the games run properly.

    Anyways Mario Kart is an old game so if it did update something it won't be anything new so it's totally safe and needed to play the game.

    If it's the same region, there shouldn't be a problem in terms of bricking.

    And like saulin mentioned, Mario Kart Wii came out like half a year ago. The update that came with it should be 3.2. Shouldn't cause any problems to homebrew.

    What version are you on? If the answer is 3.2X then use starfall to skip the update [​IMG]
