    I was wondering of getting netflix on my wii console. I have system menu 4.2 with Bootmii boot2. Does netflix streaming on the wii update it to system menu 4.3? If it does, how to I block it from updating and safely use netflix on my wii?

    The disc was made before 4.3, so it will try to update your Wii to 4.2. DO NOT UPDATE: it will remove many nice hacks on your Wii.

    Install Priiloader and use the hack for disable disc updates.

    I have StartPatch 4.2 and I set it to block disc updates on my wii. Will that work as well as priiloader?

    No, what I meant was it is the same thing as priiloader. Does StartPatch protect me from not updating my wii from netflix?

    Ok, I got it. Thanks. But one more question. Does watching new movies and tv shows update the wii menu or does netflix update the channel on certain months?

    no and no. netflix is just a disc, like popping a movie in. the only difference is the movies arent on the disc, but streamed from a server.
