    I'm thinking about actually purchasing the New Super Mario Bros for the Wii, but I want to know if the game comes with a forced 4.0 or higher update. I don't want to buy a game only to find I can't play it cause I don't want to update my wii and lose all my customization. D:

    It has 4.1 on it, so it's kinda safe to update, since 4.1 doesn't add a lot of anti-piracy thingies (none I think).
    So yeah, buy it!

    Okay, thanks guys. Does 4.1 have anything breaking or specific I should know about? I remember I avoided updating back when it came out, but I can't remember why. [​IMG]

    it has a fix for wii sports resort, even the store-bought game would crash on v4.0.

    Changes 4.1

    * Fixed a bug with Wii Sports Resort
    * Improve system performance
    * New version of Nintendo Channel (only in Japan and in North America for the moment)

    Bookmark that site, it's so handy.

    Thanks again Satangel! The "copy protected save files" is not a big deal i'm guessing, as all updates have done that. So if it won't mess with anything else, NSMB here I come!

    Nintendo should of put 4.2, just to piss people off more than they already are.

    Just use Gecko OS to load it. Then you don't need to worry about disc updates

    why worry? you could even run the game at 3.2 system menu. use neogamma off cios249rev14 then you could play the game.

    hi!

    Where did you get this information?

    I'm on 4.1u so I can buy the game and it won't update with anything with the 4.2 update?

    I want to stay on 4.1u

    Hmm, interesting. Still if it has boot2v4, I'll still have to update boot2 either way... (I dont wanna use a fail "safe updater")

    If you buy an American copy upon release, no, nothing will happen CONSIDERING that the NTSC copy uses 4.1U. If you get a foreign copy (through methods of piracy or importing, I'm not one to judge), then regardless, it'll ask for an update to 4.1E (or 4.XJ if you decide to go that route and (don't know what the version will be, so I'm using X). But most homebrew bypasses updates anyway. I use Neogamma, no update problems. I think that Preloader offers a bypass, and there's brickblocker and all that floating around nowadays anyway.


    tl;dr, there shouldn't be.

    Ok thanx a lot! Another question, I'm very noob with all those boot thing.. it said in a lot of forum that NSMBW will install boot2v4.. did I have boot2v4 with my 4.1u update?

    How can I know which Boot2 I have on my system?

    I've very limited knowledge on this and what it does, unfortunately to say. Hopefully somebody can better assist you, but I would assume that you don't. Booting sequence overwriting didn't come out until 4.2 system updates. So I would seriously doubt that NSMBWii would have it. If it were to actually include it, it shouldn't install until it does a system update anyway.
